Doula - Childbirth Mentor - Prenatal Yoga Instructor - Massage & Beauty Therapist - Mum - Wife.
Dee shares: "After a big shock at becoming a mum, and suffering in the underworld of postnatal depression, I discovered so much about myself. I realised what I needed to function well; and that was a sense of community, learning how to take time to slow down and connect to the raw & most inner parts of myself. A decade ago I attended my first Yoga Teacher training specialising in Pre & Postnatal & kids. This then led me to Birthing from Within and deepening my understanding of the complexities and “underworld” of birth, motherhood and parenting. I am a certified Birthing From Within Mentor and Doula, which has been the most incredible path. Since then I have continued to learn and grow with the goal of sharing my life experiences and hope that with each person I meet I can add some value to their life! As everyone is different, I take the time to really listen and individualise a plan, so people can easily understand what to do in the way that is right for them. "

"Nurture your dream, love it as you would a newborn baby.
Sometimes you will find your dreams stays up all night and cries for attention,
there is nothing to do but give it attention.
Everyday, in some way, do something toward the fulfilment of your dream.
Baby steps count, and they will get you to where you need to go.
Your dream is your soul mate, and deserves your love, for collectively, the dreams of your generation will save our world."
