Staff Nurse

Danielle Hounshell


Danielle joined the Lifecycle team in 2019. Previously, she worked as a Postpartum Nurse at Medstar Georgetown University Hospital.

In addition to being a nurse, Danielle is also an IBCLC and a doula. She completed her doula training with Maternity Care Coalition before going on to earn her BSN at the University of Pennsylvania and her Certificate of Human Lactation from Drexel University.

She became a nurse and lactation consultant because she is “committed to helping create a more positive vision of birth and breastfeeding in Philadelphia and the surrounding counties”.

Danielle says that it fills her heart “with light and love” to watch the clients at Lifecycle “recognize their power during the labor and birth process”, and that “it is an absolute privilege to hold continuous space for clients during such a vulnerable time”. Additionally, she is glad to be able work alongside, and continue to learn from the “incredible staff” at Lifecycle.

Outside of work, Danielle serves in her local church, enjoys trying different mom and pop restaurants around the city, cooking, and hanging with her friends.
