My name is Danielle Seifert and I’m the doula behind Truthful Beginnings. I live in Lawrenceville, Illinois with my high school sweetheart, Joel. We have been married for almost 12 years and have four children. Luke is nine, Stella is seven, Jett is five, and Kal is 2. We also have a few animals. A labradoodle named Mia, two cats, Prudence and Panther, and a dozen chickens! Joel works full time and we are blessed he works from home. When I’m not supporting families I love just spending time with my own family and planning to grow our own little homestead!  Read more...

As a doula I provide physical and emotional support during pregnancy and birth. My services include prenatal appointments, my time for the birth, and 1 postpartum appointment. During the prenatal appointments we will discuss past pregnancies and births, what your wishes are for this birth, and talk through what you want your birth to look like. I’ll also get to know you and your spouse and/or family. I will be there for the entirety of your birth, and can help getting a first latch established if you are planning on breastfeeding. I will come around 1 to 2 weeks after baby is born to visit and see how things are going.

Clients can also call, text, or email me anytime once we are under contract with questions or concerns. Read more...

Whatever is good and perfect is a gift coming down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens. He never changes or casts a shifting shadow. He chose to give birth to us by giving us his true word. And we, out of all creation, became his prized possession.

James 1:17-18
