Holistic pregnancy, birthing & mother craft classes
After birth home care program
Hi I'm Danielle, Director of A Beautiful Bump 2 Baby. I am a registered division 1 nurse and midwife with over 14 years experience in clinics and hospitals. I have a current working with children's check and police check.
I am extremely passionate about educating and preparing women and their families on all aspects of pregnancy, labour and mothercraft. Equipping parents with the skills and confidence in caring for a new addition to the family.
Being a mother of 3 myself, I recognise the need for additional support, guidance and hands on education, to enable better understanding and encourage confident parents before baby is born, reducing postpartum depression and anxiety.
Are you pregnant? Are you feeling overwhelmed with all the information from hospitals? Not sure on what your options are for pregnancy and labour? Don't know what you really need to buy for baby? Scared of how to look after your baby once born?
Look no further... A Beautiful Bump 2 Baby is here to provide holistic education with hands on practice and support.
A Beautiful Bump 2 Baby provides pregnancy, birthing & mother craft classes, PLUS an after birth home care program, delivered by Danielle a midwife of over 14 years and mother of 3.
After working in numerous hospitals and clinic settings Danielle found a large gap in knowledge families had on pregnancy, birthing and also the education provided after the birth of a baby.
"I found women straight away asking for epidurals and pethidine when just starting labour" said Danielle. "I discussed other natural methods of pain relief with the families and most then required no medical pain relief at all".
"I also found women in a mess on home visits, saying that they weren't shown how to do certain mother craft skills" said Danielle. "I use to spend hours debriefing and demonstrating how to do certain care for baby".
Danielle aims to empower parents by using a holistic approach so that parents can make informed decisions. Though providing resources, strategies and hands-on practice, to help navigate the ups and downs of your childbearing journey to the transitioning of parenting with confidence.
