Danielle Stormes (DOD)
Full Spectrum Doula – Placenta Encapsulation Specialist – Herbal/Spiritual Bathing Ritual – Red Tent Orlando Community Organizer – Raw Food Enthusiast
My name is Dani and I am so blessed to call myself a Doula. It is through supporting individuals on their personal journeys that I am able to provide my highest service to the community. By supporting women and families I am able to allow the gifts I have found along this path to flow through me and touch them and their lives in a very honest way. Whether it is during pregnancy, childbirth, or some other life changing event, I have found it is my place to stand beside my fellow humans and be a beacon, to hold space for them to see strength, courage, and beauty within themselves.
This work transcends services or learned skills. It is work that resonates within my soul so it is not only what I do, but who I am. I offer myself and my services to all women / families in all walks of life, considering all types of birth methods, and in every type of situation. I will support you exactly where you need me to, unbiased and without judgment. I believe all women should have a Doula with them at childbirth, with or without the combined support of a partner. I have witnessed on numerous occasions how meaningful, beneficial and truly important it can be to have specialized heart-centered person near during this time, not just for the mother and baby, but for the entire family. A Doula can offer informational, experiential, and emotional support that is priceless during this time.
Although I primarily work as a Prenatal/Postpartum Childbirth Doula, I proudly consider myself to be a Full Spectrum Doula (childbirth, adoption, birth anomalies, abortion, miscarriage, etc. support person).
I believe women (and families) benefit deeply from the gentle support of other women through all of these experiences, and I want to be the person who is there to offer that.
Intertwined within my path as a Doula I practice many holistic health modalities involving the mind, body, and spirit. I am a naturalist and enjoy incorporating herbs into my work with my clients and myself for their energetic and nourishing properties. I am a raw food enthusiast and also work with food for healing and center my life around knowing that food is our best medicine. I trust in the human body from birth, to daily function. In taking care of our mind, body and spirit, we are able to be our best selves physically, mentally and emotionally so we can then offer that cultivated self-love back into our children, families, friends and the rest of the world around us. I find my place in encouraging people to take care of themselves, heal themselves and find peace within.
I am honored to have found this line of work and am so grateful for all it has transformed in me and brought to my life. I am so deeply thankful for every woman / family that has ever allowed me the opportunity to serve and support them during their journey and to those who will allow me to support them in the future. If you are considering a Doula, I would love the opportunity to meet you (and your partner) to see if we work well together in forming your ideal support team for your journey to motherhood. For any other aspects of my services, or any questions about what I do or who I am, please contact me.

My name is Ali and I live in between Orange City & Deland, FL in a little cottage with 6 of my 7 children (my oldest now serving in the military), and my Love & husband since 1990. I first became interested in birth practices & histories with my 3rd pregnancy when I was told a c-section was my only option. I am an avid researcher; seek for evidence-based information and learned I had options, LOTS of options. For nearly 15 years now I have been studying the options for the best outcomes. For the last 8 years I have been studying for my clients & my community as my passion grew into my profession. In which I have worked as a Doula, a leader with La Leche League, & as a Birth, Breastfeeding, Nutrition & Parenting Educator, as well as helped to put in place better Birthing and Breastfeeding Laws. My extensive collaborations with Doctors, Nurses, Midwives, and other medical and birth professionals have given me great insight over the years, and helps me to serve my clients in any setting they choose to birth, or, should the birth choose an unanticipated setting. I love working as a non-medical Birth Professional as then I’m not bound by protocols, but free to serve Mamas and their Babes, ensuring the best possible birth outcome from their vantage point. I also help Mamas & their families to make the transition into their new roles in the family that is also birthed with the arrival of their Precious Blessing. I look forward to serving your family with information~ education & support. Because if you don’t know your options, you don’t have any.

Nicole Kocemba – DoorstepDelivery.com
DoorstepDelivery.com® and their professional team of “mobile waiters” are revolutionizing the way people eat, allowing the convenience of having your favorite restaurants delivered directly to your home, office, or event. Until recently, people who wanted food delivered other than the traditional Chinese or Pizza have had to pick up themselves. For occasions where people needed to feed a large group, the options were limited unless you wanted to pay a huge premium to have a professional catering service handle it. Doorstep Delivery now allows people to get what they want (select from their favorite restaurants), where they want (home, office, hotel, event, beach, hospital …), when they want (order now or place for future delivery), and how they want it (delivered, picked-up, dine-in).

I have an undeniable passion for natural and conscious pregnancy, childbirth, and parenting. I believe becoming a mother is one of life’s most sacred and profound transformations. As a proud mother of two wonderful boys, I cherish this process deeply. Soon after the birth of my first son in 2004, I decided to take part in other women’s journeys. In 2009, I gave birth to my second son and today I continue to nurture the gratifying journey of motherhood while supporting other women in their own transformations. I feel every woman deserves the opportunity to experience birth as a beautiful and powerful rite of passage. I trust that every woman’s journey into motherhood is unique and sacred. My intention is to assist and support women by creating a safe and loving environment for them to open to their own Mother Nature.

Coupling this with being a Lamaze certified childbirth educator and IBCLC exam candidate for 2013, I work hard to provide breastfeeding support both in home and physician’s offices. I also teach Lamaze classes in 4-week intervals, providing Volusia and Seminole county mothers with a fun and interactive alternative to boring lectures of hospital-based education.

Amaya Papaya Play Lounge
We’ve created a destination for families to play, learn, party and shop together while hanging out in an eclectic parent-child hangout. Children ages 0 – 5 can learn through hands on discovery, role-playing, physical activity and parent/child interaction. Parents can play with their children on play structures and in imagination-inspiring themed play areas, or relax and talk to other grownups while watching their children explore from one of the mini “lounge areas”.
Amaya Papaya offers a full range of services including open play ALL DAY Monday – Friday, parent and child enrichment classes, birthday parties, a Market Place to purchase children’s products created or approved by parents and we even sell snacks and beverages!
Amaya Papaya was created just for you and your family so hurry in to play(anytime!), sign up for a class, have a play date, bring your laptop or PDA (we have free Wi-FI) or have your child’s next birthday party here!
Amaya Papaya’s Mom
Yolonda is the mother of 6 year old Amaya, who is of course the inspiration for the “Play-Lounge”.
Yolonda enjoys spending time with her husband Thomas, Amaya, and their dog Simba. Yolonda has a degree in Psychology and has worked as a Health Educator and Counselor serving both children and their families in the Central Florida area for over 10 years. After becoming a mother, Yolonda recognized the need for an environment that was fun for small children yet a chill spot for parents as well.
Yolonda longed for a place to take Amaya that would allow her to play freely, without fear of being knocked down by bigger children, with play equipment that was age-appropriate, and an environment that was not over stimulating. The playground seemed like a viable choice but the intense Florida heat and afternoon thunderstorms limited the playtime. Yolonda also wanted a place that allowed her to relax and enjoy the company of other grownups while Amaya enjoyed playtime with other children – all within her eyesight. Every place that Yolonda and Amaya visited did not fit the bill. After much research and exploration with the help of Yolonda’s business partner (Amaya!), planning for Amaya Papaya began!
