Hi, I'm Dee.
For many many years I have supported families through their biggest transformations .
With over 30 years in the wellness space, serving others is a top priority. This, along with trust and loyalty are what form the underlying values for every part of my business.
Becoming a mother myself, was one of the most transformational experiences of my life and has shaped my service to my community. My first birth was an amazing experience and required great strength, but motherhood was the real challenge for me as I was totally unprepared in what I needed. Suffering in the underworld of postnatal depression, I actually discovered so much about myself.
I learned two major things were needed to be able to show up for myself and my family. Firstly, finding my Mumma community to share and support each other; and also learning to slow down, move and breathe! Through yoga and yogic philosophy I understood how to feel good in both body and mind.
After my second child was born, I knew I needed to share all that I had learned with my community and offer support for parents, so they don't suffer as I once did. Deva Co. is my way of giving back to my community and offering my knowledge and expertise for those who need it.
As an experienced Childbirth Educator & Doula, I have trained in various modalities to share the best information with parents in their childbearing year. This includes Birthing From Within, Sacred Birthing & Spinning Babies. These transformational models of childbirth/parent preparation deepened my understanding of the complexities and “underworld” of birth, motherhood & parenting.
In sharing my life experiences I hope I can inspire and add value to peoples lives. As everyone is different, I take the time to really listen and personalise a plan. This is so people can easily understand what to do in the most aligned way for them. I always keep learning and growing, and 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. To combine all of that within one brand at Deva Co. is pretty exceptional. I truly hope you feel the love, connection and support here at Deva Co. and find your caring community within ours.
I can’t wait to meet you!
Much love, Dee

Thank you for your support, your advice, your encouragement and your friendship, Dee. Words can't express how much it meant to have you there for the arrival of our little boy. I would have been lost without you.
Dee was my doula for the birth of my 2nd baby. She was most helpful giving me advice during labour which allowed me to look at pain from a different perspective. She removed the feeling of being overwhelmed by pain. Dee took away a lot of the fear of the unpredictability of pregnancy/labour and explained labour in both emotional and medical contexts. This deeper understanding enabled me to look at the whole experience as natural and normal. This was helpful on days when I was finding pregnancy hard, and during the most difficult stages of labour. Dee was also helpful in that she guided my husband through the labour and showed him the best techniques for helping me along.
