Feel prepared. Be informed. Look forward to your birth with confidence and excitement.
“You won’t regret going to these classes – they are worth every penny. My husband and I recommend them to everyone we know who is expecting. We can’t imagine going through a birth without the knowledge we gained from taking this class.” ~Janice and Vince, Elroy
“Neither my husband nor I really had any idea what to expect. Quite frankly I am afraid of the unknown, and hiring Denise gave us peace of mind going into the birthing experience. As my husband put it ‘there is no way we would have been able to go through that without an epidural if Denise hadn’t been there.'” ~Naomi, DeForest
“I was surprised at how easy it was! Denise made the process so simple and it really felt like one of the most straightforward parts of my labor. I was also amazed at how quickly the turnaround time was. I would do this again in a heartbeat and I highly recommend working with Denise!” – Steph, DeForest

Don’t see something that works for you? Let me know!
Want to take an active role in your birth, and you’d like some extra guidance and labor support to make that happen? The evidence is clear that doulas help to reduce the need for cesareans and pain medications and improve birth satisfaction.
Take the pressure off you and your partner to feel like you have to “know it all.” If you live in or near Sun Prairie, Columbus, Portage, Baraboo, Reedsburg, Sauk Prairie, DeForest, the Madison area or anywhere in between, I’d love to meet with you to see if we’re a great fit for each other!
Whether you’re in your first or last trimester, it’s never too late to hire a doula!
Many women report improved moods, energy, milk supply and more after having their placenta encapsulated. While there are different ways to prepare it, the end result is your placenta powder in capsules delivered to you at the hospital or your home. I aim to make the whole process as seamless as possible for you.
I’ve been offering placenta encapsulation services in the Madison area, Columbia, and Sauk Counties since 2015. As an APPA-certified placenta encapsulation specialist, safety is my top priority. I have encapsulated more than 50 placentas in my dedicated workspace and would love to prepare yours for you too!
