Hi I’m Dee.
My mission in nurturing others began long before I even knew where I was headed! In my teens I began working in the family beauty salon and spa. I learnt the Beauty trade from the ground up over many years, with service to others being the number one priority that was instilled in me. 30 years on & this is still true in every part of my business and passion.
My first birth was an amazing experience that required great strength. But becoming a mum was where the real challenges came. Being a mother was something I knew nothing about and was totally unprepared for. Suffering in the underworld of postnatal depression, I discovered so much about myself. I came to realise what I needed in my life to function well and be there for my family. This was two major things – finding my Mumma community, and learning how to take time to slow down & connect to the raw, real me! I found that through yoga -which made me feel so good in body and mind! This is when I realised there was so much more to life than I had experienced. I decided after my second child was born that I needed to share all that I had learned in the hope that others didn’t suffer as I had.
For over a decade I have specialised in Pre & Postnatal and kids yoga and supporting women and families through their childbearing year. I’m also a Certified Childbirth Educator and Doula. I have trained in various modalities to allow me to bring forth the best information to share with parents in their childbearing year. This includes of course Birthing From Within. This amazing model of childbirth/parent preparation allowed me deepen my understanding of the complexities and “underworld” of birth, motherhood and parenting. Which has been the most incredible path, and one I absolutely love to share with parents.
I have a huge passion for 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. I am in no way perfect and keep continually learning and growing, but I believe showing up with all of my vulnerabilities to serve others is where I am truly of value.
I have been so blessed to meet some amazing people over the last 30 years, and have learned so much. From waxing eyebrows to belly dancing to supporting parents in birth and yoga; and to now combine all of that under one brand at Deva Co. is pretty special. I really hope you feel the connection and support here at Deva Co. and you find your new tribe with us!
I can’t wait to meet you!
Much love, Dee
