The three Founders


Hi! I'm Emily Ager, CPM, IBCLC. I am a professional midwife and lactation consultant with a background in out-of-hospital birth, now offering home-based services to best support our community of growing families. I am passionate about helping parents find real solutions to challenges, grow confidence, and find their village. I am a mother of 2 young boys, forest seeker, and lover of good food. 


She/her pronouns 


Hi! I'm Danielle Schell, a professional Doula with over 8 years of experience. I offer personalized education, support, and care for births of any trimester. Whether a birth or bereavement client, my goal is to make sure you have the information and education you need to make informed choices before, during and after labor. I aim to be a calm and loving presence in all my work. I have 2 sons, a dog, and a really fluffy cat. When not working I can be found hiking, biking, or costume designing!


She/her pronouns

Prior to becoming a midwife, I have been a birth doula, a technical editor, and a freelance editor/writer/translator. I have two children, a couple of cats, and a flock of backyard chickens.
