Our Positive Birth classes are taught by Dee the Doula. We teach holistic prenatal & postnatal care that is informative & easy to understand. You will learn practical information about labour, birth skills, caring for a newborn and much more in a relaxed environment.
Our classes work extremely well when paired with ongoing Prenatal Yoga and Pilates classes. Which gives you the opportunity every week to immerse yourself in learning and practice that is needed. This can help you cope well through your birth experience.
Dee the Doula
Dee has been working with families pre & postnatally for well over a decade and in that time has mentored and coached thousands of parents-to-be to a positive, empowered, connected birth experience.
In all that time we’ve never had anyone fall asleep due to boredom!
Dee is a Certified Birthing From Within Childbirth Educator & Doula and has also trained with Spinning Babies, BellydanceBirth & HypnoBirthing Australia as a Supportive Caregiver. All of these birthing methods are incorporated into the Deva Birth Co. Classes.
You can be sure you’ll be in experienced and loving hands
when you come to Deva Birth Co.
We believe that our childbirth classes are essential. Especially for first-time parents and for those preparing for their next birth when the first one didn’t go as “planned”. Excelling in reducing fear and preventing emotional birth trauma, we openly discuss the intensity of birth AND the inner strength, resourcefulness and knowing of women.
We encourage connection and support between birthing couples and their support people so you can all head into your birthing journey feeling safe, confident and prepared. Birthing your baby is a time when you can feel joyful, excited, nervous and apprehensive all at once. Once you have completed your Deva Birth Co. classes you will feel ready and excited to meet your baby and become parents.

Includes a refresher on birth positions and partner support.
Cost is $180 per couple in group $260 for private session. Book in quick as places are limited and you don’t want to miss this amazing opportunity!
Birth Story Medicine
When thinking about the birth of their child, parents can often have mixed feelings of joy and grief, guilt, anger or depression. Especially when the baby is healthy, most people discount the importance or validity of a parent’s negative or unexpected feelings about the labour or birth.
Left unresolved, negative feelings and beliefs undermine the joy and confidence of parenting, and can negatively affect relationships with partner, baby, friends and work. If your past birth experience is interfering with your peace of mind or positive anticipation of an upcoming birth, then don’t wait. Change the way you feel about your birth in a Birth Story session.
Sessions are in a group or privately and are approximately 1 hour.
Birth Story Medicine is also included in the Birthing Again class.
Private Session $90
Dee the Doula
Doulas are experienced in childbirth through their own experiences and/or by attending births. A doula provides emotional, practical and physical support for the birthing person and their family during pregnancy, labour and the postnatal period.
I am a mother of two and certified doula which allows me both personal & professional experience in supporting you during your pregnancy, birth and beyond.
I understand that each family is different and I can adapt to your needs. This is reflected in the many births I have attended, which have been totally varied and unique. I have offered continuous emotional and physical support during long and extremely intense situations. My resolve to support and nurture families through their birth did not waver in these times, which has given me amazing insight and experience to bring to the next birth.
If you are looking for some extra support before, during and/or after the birth of your baby then this could be what you have been searching for.
Services I provide as a doula:
- Phone and email support during pregnancy.
- Prenatal Yoga & Pilates Barre classes.
- Prenatal visits and support.*
- Emotional support and childbirth education including pain coping practices
- Attendance during labour and birth when you need me
- Post Natal visits and support.**
- Community of like minded people
- community library of relevant books to lend
*Prenatal visits may include yoga and movement, childbirth education, massage, all aspects of beauty therapy & nutrition tips. ** Postnatal visits may include sharing your birth story, massage, beauty therapy, nutritious meals, helping around the house, breastfeeding help, baby settling & massage.
