BIRTH AND POSTNATAL DOULA & HYPNOBIRTHING
Supporting women on their journey into and through motherhood
Hello, my name is Daniella, I am a mother, a Doula and a hypnobirthing teacher in Bristol and absolutely love my job. I work closely with women and their families at such poignant and powerful moments in their lives .
Before I was working in this way, my background is many years of childcare and early years education. Although I am very passionate about education and empowering children, I feel a greater calling to work with women and offer out a hand of support as they walk the path of motherhood. Through working as a doula and hypnobirthing teacher I am blown away by the courage, strength, resilience and also vulnerability that mums (and dads!) experience and feel moved to celebrate that as well as stand up to normalise and offer support during the tricky moments.
Getting down to the raw and real moments in life with people is immensely inspiring and humbling. It is an absolute honour to work with people and families in this way.
I have had lots of experience with many people going through a variety of different situations such as: twin birth, solo parents, home birth, hospital birth, supporting survivors of abuse, baby loss, inductions, VBAC, high risk consultant lead pregnancy and many other intricacies that make pregnancy and birth so unique for everyone. I have also supported many families postnatally where I have seen and supported a variety of different experiences, needs and approaches. I like to work with people and respond to their needs moment by moment, but ultimately, my passion is to share information, tips and tools with the aim to offer reassurance so people grow in their own confidence and empowerment.
When I am not busy supporting women, their partners or children, I love to spend time with my family, good friends, walking in wild places with our scruffy dog, cooking, singing or pottering around with crafty projects. It's also really important to me, (even if I only get 2 minutes spare due to family life) to spend time each day sitting with myself and connecting with the magic that we are all part of.
