Additional Information


Danae is one of those people with a beautifully infectious personality. Her passion for helping women feel empowered when it comes to pregnancy and birth is like no other.

From our first phone conversation, right through to when I delivered my baby, she was ever present, genuine and supportive. Her belief that I could have the birth I wanted allowed me to have the exact birth I wanted! It was quick (even quicker than expected), natural and all mine. I felt in control and birthed my baby my way.

Before I met Danae, I had had a long and arduous birth experience with my first child and had decided I’d probably need pain relief and intervention for my next birth. But through our sessions, Danae helped educate me on some of the little unknown details of the birthing process and encouraged me to really own my next experience and try to do things the way I truly wanted to.

I couldn’t be happier with my second birthing experience. Starting the postpartum journey with a positive birth experience has definitely made a huge impact to how I can now handle all the challenges of newborn-hood once again.

I can’t recommend Danae enough!! She is a gift 💜 x Lauren

Danae is one of those special people you only have the privilege of knowing so rarely. We invited her to be our doula, with the hope of experiencing a natural, unmedicated water birth. As first time parents we felt that we couldn’t have achieved that wish without Danae’s support, guidance and expert advice. Our birth experience will always be the most heart opening, grounding and completely magical time of our lives. I am so glad Danae was there with us and will forever be grateful to her. We welcomed our precious daughter gently into the water and into our hearts, captured so beautifully by Danae on video. Thankyou does not even begin to express our deep gratitude. ❤️❤️❤️ Sarah

Danae is a caring, responsive and empowering doula who is a master at her craft. I am in awe of her broad set of skills and qualities.

For example, Danae will work holistically with your body through yoga, massage, meditation and nutrition. She can connect deeply with you about the spiritual journey of birth and crack a joke at the right moment to lighten the mood. She makes you feel safe during the overwhelming emotions of labour and in the quiet moments of doubt throughout the pregnancy. Very importantly, Danae has strong medical knowledge to credibly engage with doctors and midwives and to objectively explain procedures to parents in plain English.

It’s a rare to find this depth of capability and capacity in one person, and we are so grateful that she was and continues to be there for our family. x Grace

Danae supported me in the months leading up to the birth of my first baby. She adapted yoga classes for me and ensured I was always safe and comfortable (yet still pushed myself, safely). Danae quickly became a core part of my mental and physical birth preparation. She filled me with confidence each time I saw her, and I felt she was constantly looking out for me. Danae's wisdom and care made me feel powerful, strong and "in the zone" for my birth. I did yoga classes with her until 2 days before my birth and have continued with 'mums and bubs' yoga since. Danae's support over the past year has filled me with energy and I know that I am a happier, more balanced and powerful woman/ mother/human because of the time I have spent with her. Thanks Danae! x Stacey
