My name is Danielle and I am a Real Birth teacher, certified Doula and Aquanatal Yoga instructor based in the Vale of Glamorgan and Cardiff, South Wales.
I am a mum of two boys and it was after their very different pregnancies and births, along with the support I received both at home and hospital that I decided to become a birth worker myself!
Since qualifying as a doula in 2016 I have supported many mums-to-be and their partners on this wonderful journey. I have pre and post-natal doula experience with midwife and consultant led births, natural term breastfeeding, expressing, bottle feeding, lone parenting and teenage pregnancy.
My training as an Aquayoga teacher has helped me teach clients how to use breathing to slow down, relax and completely focus on their body and baby during pregnancy.
This workshop compliments all of that and will gently guide you and your partner through the different stages of labour and birth, giving you both an amazing understanding of how birth actually happens. I feel privileged to support ALL birthing choices and provide you with up to date evidence-based antenatal information, so that you can leave fully prepared with knowledge that will guide you in making informed decisions about your baby’s birth. My aim is to make you feel empowered and positive, because after all……… knowledge in pregnancy is power during birth! I teach with an upbeat attitude and humour plays a big part too… so I promise the time will pass before you know it.
If you have any questions about the workshop or would like to book a place,
please email via my website or Facebook page.
“My family has had a very sad history with miscarriages and because of this our first couple of months were plagued with tests and worries. We spent the first stages of pregnancy in limbo not wanting to learn or plan anything in fear of something going wrong. When we finally had good news and all clear I was just overwhelmed with the fear that I didn’t know what I should know by now and what I should be doing in preparation, which wasn’t helped by COVID and all anti-natal classes being cancelled. Luckily, I knew Danielle is a Doula, and asked her to do her Antenatal Workshops for me… and THANK GOODNESS FOR HER. She came to see me at home in full PPE and put me completely at ease. She instantly calmed all my nerves. She is so warm and knowledgable and gave me all the information I needed in a clear and easy manner that I was able to understand. I am looking forward to our next session. She has given me so much peace of mind now I know what to expect and I can finally try to enjoy the rest of my pregnancy. I cannot recommend Danielle’s services enough!”
