As a well respected Doula, Danae pride's herself in providing you and your partner unconditional care, understanding, information and support throughout, during, and after the birthing process.
Throughout your pregnancy and birth, Danae will take the time to understand what you really want from your birth. You will receive thorough birth education and be able to utilise as much of Danae's knowledge to prepare for this amazing experience. Danae strives to ensure your experience is as calm, empowering and positive as possible.
