Exceptional, Compassionate, Midwifery Care
Every birth is special. Whether it takes place at the hospital, a birth center, or at home, every birth is as uniquely individual as you. At Like Mother Like Daughter Midwifery, I strive to make your experience of prenatal, birth, and postpartum care a healthy balance of the traditional practices and medical training of midwifery. I am looking forward to hearing from you.
What Do I Provide?
PRENATAL CARE & COUNSELING
From our initial meeting all the way through your pregnancy and delivery, I take the time to get to know you, your concerns and your needs. I provide my clients with around the clock care in addition to their regularly scheduled prenatal appointments.
Here With You
Get extra personal support through the entirety of your birthing journey. I offer unwavering support and monitoring to you and your baby. I will stay in close contact in order to routinely check how you're doing and offer any support or changes that are needed.
Your baby moon is a special time. A time for you to heal and bond with your little one. You will have regular postpartum home visits to ensure you and your baby and safe and sound. I believe that postpartum is just as important as prenatal care. We will have regular postpartum and newborn exams at 24-36 hours after birth, a 5-7 day check in, and 2-6 weeks are as needed.
I am proud to serve the birthing needs of anyone who is looking for support and guidance throughout the pregnancy process. I make an effort to maintain a lifelong connection with my clients, and check up on their progress as new parents. Curious about my past patients’ experiences? Take a look at their positive stories below.
"I was sitting here thinking about what I wanted to say in my review of Danielle and my heart just swelled with love! I’ve had such wonderful experiences with her. We’ve had all five of our babies at home and Danielle has been with us with the last three. She was so attentive and made me feel so cared for. I was impressed that on one hand she can be there encouraging me and supporting me emotionally and then on the other hand answering any medical question I had about the baby or delivery. I have complete trust in her knowledge and abilities. She definitely knows her stuff! I could not recommend her more!"
And what could be more beautiful,
than bringing new life into the world?
Why I’m a Midwife
Danielle Shealy CD(DONA), CPM, LM
My journey with home birth midwifery goes back to the day I was born at home. It not only changed my mother's life forever, but it also changed mine. I was the only one out of four to be born at home. About a year after my birth, my mother became a midwife's assistant. That led her into the passion and joy of midwifery. When I was older my mother went back to school to become a midwife. She is about to celebrate her 10th year as a practicing midwife. Growing up I never would have thought this would have been my calling and path. At the time I was in a Russian ballet company, anything medical was not on my radar. At 17, I graduated high school unsure of my path. By 18, my mother convinced me to attend a few births. This changed my life and heart forever. I witnessed incredible women, doing incredible things, with incredible support and love. I became a DONA certified doula to continue working on birth teams as I started looking into midwifery schools. I obtained my education at the National Midwifery Institute and graduated in 2018. In my apprenticeship I had the great privilege of working with my mother Jami Morris LM, CPM, and Susan Smart LM, CPM,. Following my graduation, I passed the national midwifery boards of NARM. My heart and passion are in midwifery. My joy is in assisting women in one of life's greatest journeys. I truly believe I have the greatest job in the world. The experience of pregnancy and birth has changed over the years, especially in today’s modern era. I believe that the need for caring, sensitive and traditional midwifery practices during this time is becoming more and more apparent. I see every pregnancy and birth as a miracle, and I feel honored to be considered to be a part of your new adventure.
