Daphne Welsh
Birth Assistant, Doula

Daphne is a natural in the birth space. She brings a gentle, calming energy that everyone can feel. We are thrilled to have her join our team as a birth assistant. 


She is also a DONA trained Doula practicing independently and is happy to offer birth and postpartum services for clients birthing with other providers at home or in the hospital. She is a self-taught expert in natural family planning and fertility awareness. She is passionate about reclaiming our reproductive health and is working toward becoming a Fertility Awareness Educator.


Daphne was born at home and helped at her first birth when she was just 13! She loves spending time outdoors, hiking and camping, live music, and being a wife. She and her husband celebrate their anniversary on Halloween!
