VANESSA KNAGG | DOULA IN DALLAS
Hi! I’m Vanessa Knagg; wife, mom, and certified birth and postpartum doula. I am passionate about helping others and educating and empowering families through pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. My goal is for you to feel heard, loved, and supported throughout your journey. I am dedicated to providing professional unbiased, labor and postpartum doula services to suit all individual’s needs and desires.
My journey into the birthing community started after the birth of my second son. I had an unmedicated VBAC in the water. I went into that birth more informed and left feeling so empowered. I want that for all families no matter how they choose to bring their baby earth side. I believe that when you know your options and have more knowledge you can make more informed decisions.
Having had a VBAC myself left me wanting to educate and support families desiring a VBAC achieve that goal. I furthered my education and became a VBAC trained doula.
Families going through loss and infertility hold a special place in my heart as I too had 3 consecutive miscarriages before my second son was born. Being able to support families that have been through those struggles is a true honor.
I can often be found adventuring with my husband and our two sons along with our beloved rescue dogs. You may have even heard me on my acclaimed birth and adoption story podcast, The Delivery Diaries, where I highlight the incredibly diverse and powerful birth and adoption stories of families around the world.

I was attempting a VBA2C and was very nervous. Sarah was smart, professional, comforting, gentle, and knowledgeable. She helped me get through something I didn’t even think I could do, which is to give birth naturally. The delivery of my daughter was the most painful. But because of how the doula helped me, her comfort and confidence and care, I never want to do it another way. She helped turn it from something frightening and seemingly impossible, into one of the most incredible experiences of my life. Thank you, Sarah!!
Katie was so helpful during my labor and birth that her example helped my husband to find his support role. They worked very well together to make labor as manageable as possible for me. She also took pictures during my labor and delivery that we would not have otherwise. We will cherish those precious memories!!
After my c-section, I wasn’t sure how I was going to be able to handle a newborn, my toddler, my house and also rest. Deanna was amazing and seemed to know exactly what I needed. I couldn’t have handled the first few weeks without her!
Nicole was extremely helpful in achieving the birth I wanted. I couldn’t have done it without her!
