"Dakota went above and beyond to make sure we felt comfortable with the whole placenta encapsulating process. Her compassion and knowledge come through as she explains everything step-by-step. She came highly recommended and we second it -- we had a meaningful, easy experience with her and would recommend her to any of our friends!"
"Dakota is the best! If you're considering hiring a doula, definitely check out her incredible offerings at Matrescence Doula Services. She is a ceremonialist and wise, wise young woman carrying so much deep medicine... She held my sealing ceremony in the most profound and sacred way...wow! If you're pregnant, you should just check her out! I have known her since she was a teenager and she has been diligently studying her craft since then! She is a true gift to our community!"
"Dakota is an amazing doula! Her presence during my pregnancy and the birth of our daughter was a tremendous help. Dakota was helpful in educating us in what to expect in the weeks leading up to labor, the childbirth process itself, and what to expect postpartum. She was very professional and nurturing through the entire process. Throughout our transfer from the birth center to the hospital, she was invaluable to both me and my husband. During the most hectic times she was calm, grounding and the consistent support we needed. Dakota was quick to ask questions and make suggestions that were in my best interest. She was by my side the entire time, gave me positive energy and reassurance to succeed in my desire for an unmedicated birth. Her passion for her profession helped me not only deliver a happy healthy baby, but helped facilitate an empowering and sacred birth experience for me as a new mama."

About me

Similar to a young person going through their "adolescence", the word "Matrescence" means: the process of becoming a mother (coined by anthropologist Dana Rafael). This word fully embodies our philosophy and how we choose to practice as a doula team because we will hold the Sacred Transition that you will go through when becoming parents -- for the first time and beyond.

During Dakota's time studying Holistic Midwifery at The Matrona, she learned that she doesn't need to save birthing people in labor. She can't birth their babies for them. She learned the power of Holding Space and of Witnessing. Of holding people in the darkness and not trying to FIX anything, but simply witness them. The Matrona taught her to "Return Birth to the Family" and as the Founder and Owner of Matrescence Doula Services, that is really the philosophy she values most.

Whatever the outcome of your pregnancy, we are here to simply hold you, pray with you and love you through the child-bearing continuum. We will advocate for and support *your* choice and *your* intuition. We will facilitate sacred ceremony and honor your transition into Matrescence. We will do everything in our ability to make you feel the most comfortable during your labor. And we will co-create a safe place with you. It is an honor and a privilege to do so.

"Dakota and Danielle are two amazingly talented doulas. They will hold space in the loveliest of ways no matter your birth plan. I had a magical and peaceful experience laboring my baby with them. I would highly highly suggest both Dakota and Danielle if you are looking for support during pregnancy, childbirth and the postpartum period."
"Dakota is nothing short of incredible. The way she is able to facilitate ceremony and hold sacred space is truly profound. She hosted a Wedding Ceremony for me and some of my closest friends as part of my bachelorette "party" weekend and it was one of the most important things I did to prepare me for that transition in my life. Being surrounded by Dakota and my friends, I felt so nourished, so seen, so held, so loved, so ready to step into my new role as partner and wife. Dakota was also so kind and gentle with my friends who were new to and unfamiliar with this sort of ceremonial/ritual space, helping them to feel comfortable and to be able to participate in their own unique way. I could not have imagined a more wonderful way to spend my time that weekend. Thank you, Dakota, from the bottom of my heart!!"
"Dakota is a woman of powerful intuitions and an enormous heart. Her ability to hold space for mothers, partners, and babies is invaluable prenatally, at birth, and in the postpartum time. Her sharp mind, gentle sense of humor, and humble presence brought grace and lightness to our midwifery practice, even in the most trying of times. As a midwife, I can say that the families who walk through the profound process of birth with Dakota have been given an incredible blessing!"
