Deva Birth Co. ~ Positive Birth Classes & Doula Support

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.

Dee is a Certified Birthing From Within Childbirth Educator & Doula and has also trained with
Spinning Babies, BirthWorks, 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. and attend a Positive Birth Class!

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.

The 12hr series is run over two days from 10am-5pm $600

This class is for parents expecting their second, third or more baby. By sharing your birth stories you can move past any lingering doubts or fears you may be holding onto with Birth Story Medicine (more below).
You will build your pain coping mindset and have tools to prepare for birth and beyond. We’ll discuss the changing family dynamic, and prepare for your birth both physically and mentally.
Includes a refresher on birth positions and partner support.
Saturday 12:30pm-4:30pm.
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

Birth Support

Doula ~ literally means “to serve” and to “mother the mother”. It is the epitome of my why; to be of service and hold space for families on their birthing journey, I provide emotional, practical and physical support for the birthing person and their family during pregnancy, labour and the postnatal period.

I am a mum of two and experienced certified doula which allows me both personal & professional experience in supporting you during your pregnancy, birth and beyond. With many years experience in bodywork and movement therapy I give you the best support before, during and after the birth of your precious little one.

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 & sometimes extremely intense situations, advocating for families when they were unable to know what to do next. 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 you and your birth.
I assure you that I will stay by your side for as long as you need me; holding your hand, massaging your back or just breathing with you.

If you are looking for some extra support no matter whether you are choosing to birth at home or in a Hospital/Birth Centre, then this could be what you have been searching for.
