My name is Danielle and I am a certified Doula and Antenatal Teacher based in the Vale of Glamorgan but also cover areas of Cardiff and Bridgend. My services include antenatal birth preparation workshops, birth and postnatal support, aquanatal yoga classes and pregnancy meet up groups. As your Doula, my role is to listen to you and find out your hopes and preferences regarding birth and motherhood. From this I can signpost you to information that will help you to be able to make and be confident with your choices. The continuous emotional and practical support that a Doula brings to a new mum both before and after birth has been proven to have an amazing effect on the whole family. I support parents in getting to know their newborn baby and help mum find her own way as a new mother, both physically and emotionally.As your AquaNatal Yoga teacher, my role is to support you in bonding with your unborn baby whilst showing you breathing exercises and movements that will help aid flexibility in the hips, but most importantly allow you to use the water to focus on yourself and relax!I never give out medical advice or give my own personal opinions, but will fully support you along with my knowledge, experience and training. I will give you the confidence to trust in your informed decisions and be there for you and your birth partner every step of the way!This is your birth, and your baby. All the best on this beautifully blooming journey we call: Motherhood!
“Giving birth should be your greatest achievement, not your greatest fear!”
“Whenever and however you give birth, your experience will impact your emotions, your mind, your body, and your spirit for the rest of your life.”
“We cannot birth our babies through sheer force of will. We need to learn the more subtle, the equally powerful path of surrender.”
“People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
