About me

Hi there, my name is Dana Petrella and I'm a Birth/Postpartum Doula and Childbirth Educstor in in Akron, Ohio (I support clients in NE Ohio and virtual). I provide a judgement-free zone for you and your family to thrive by providing emotional support, evidence-based information, and a listening ear. In my free time, I enjoy hiking with my son and husband, biking around my neighborhood, reading fantasy novels, and frequenting farmers' markets.
