Danae is a well known and experienced Birth Educator and Doula. She believes that not only is it crucial to be able to educate women and their partners well, but that the knowledge has to then translate into practical application in whatever environment you choose to birth in.
Understanding all aspects of the process, preparing the body and mind, preparing for unexpected outcomes and ensuring informed consent, all make for a thorough approach that allows women to understand every choice they have made and never look back with regrets. That is when women leave their births feeling empowered and emotionally well.
"We don't have control over how our birth unfolds - what we do have control over is the energy we bring to the experience. That is how you make birth beautiful" - Lael Stone
