BIRTH AND POSTNATAL DOULA & HYPNOBIRTHING
Supporting women on their journey into and through motherhood
COVID-19 UPDATE: Just a little note to say, I am still very much working to support women and their families, just slightly differently than my usual practice. I am working in a case by case way appropriate and relevant to each woman.
I see now more than ever this kind of support is so needed!
Please do get in touch for more information.
Hello, my name is Daniella, I am a Doula and a hypnbobirthing 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 .
Let me tell you how I got here, It was through 11 years of being a well known and successful registered childminder that I had gained so much experience, (and patience) working with and caring for babies, toddlers and older children too. Through that work I also met, became close with and learnt massively from the many women and mothers I met in playgrounds, toddler groups, school pick ups and not to mention my friends and clients over the past years. Through being surrounded by women and their families I have learnt about women's needs, hopes, fears, joys, struggles and just how unique and powerful each woman is simply by being them.
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 clients in this way.
When I am not busy supporting women, their partners or children, I love to spend time walking in wild places, cooking, singing, pottering around with crafty projects or spending time with my partner, our dog and good friends. It's also really important to me to spend time each day sitting with myself and connecting with the magic that we are all part of.
