I am a birth and postnatal Doula based in Cardiff and Vale of Glamorgan. I cover all areas of South Wales.
My services include: Antenatal preperation along with labour, birth and postnatal support (see website for full details). I’ve been fully certified through Nurturing Birth since 2016 and am now on their team as a Doula Mentor. I am also recognised by Doula UK.
You can book me simply to understand more about the labour/birth process, or to actually attend your birth to support you and your birth partner. I have previous experience with homebirth, midwife led units and consultant care. Once you have given birth I’m available visit you at home if you would like support with breast/ bottle feeding or just need someone to sit, listen and fully support you if your partner returns to work. I do not give out my personal views but can give you trusted information so you can make informed decisions that seem right for you and your baby!
Being a mum of two boys and living right on the coast, we love the outdoors and anything that keeps us busy as a family! I have previous experience with natural term breastfeeding, expressing, bottle feeding, hospital births, home births, consultant or midwife led care, teenage pregnancy, single parenthood and pregnancy after fertility treatment.
If you’re looking for honesty, warmth, patience and humour…..then I could be the doula for you!
I qualified as an Aquanatal teacher in 2017 and run classes in Cardiff and Barry. I love watching expectant mums enjoy the water and properly relax! We cover breathing for birth, pelvic floor awareness and positions for birth whilst enjoying the benefits of being weightless in the water.
If you are feeling overwhelmed or confused about birth, I can provide an in depth Antenatal Class in your own home with the Real Birth Workshop. We cover stages of labour, birth physiology, birth preferences, labour support and early days with a newborn.
Finally, I volunteer by running my local ‘Blooming Together’ pregnancy group in Barry for expectant mums to socialise and gain valuable information surrounding birth and motherhood. Group is free to attend!

I had Danielle visit me at a time when I was starting to feel a little anxious and overwhelmed by the thought of labour and life thereafter, and to say Danielle put my mind at rest is an understatement. Her bubbly personality made me feel at ease talking about labour with her and made me feel a lot more prepared for what was to come. I honestly think I wouldn’t have been able to have had the good experience of labour without the help of Danielle and for anyone out there wondering if they should have a doula or not I’d definitely say go for it…you won’t regret it.”
“Danielle is a vibrant and easy person to be around, she made the whole experience fun and took the fear out of the impending birth of our first child.
Danielle has given my husband and myself the confidence to make informed decisions about the type of birth we want and that we are doing the best for us and our baby.
We can’t recommend Danielle enough to any expectant parents who feel slightly overwhelmed by pregnancy and birth. She really has been invaluable to us. Thank you Dan!!” Rebecca W.
“Danielle came to my home to support me when my partner went back to work. My daughter was only 2 weeks old and quite unsettled, but the help and support Danielle gave me was invaluable! She is patient, kind and very easy to talk to. On top of that she made me laugh and gave me the confidence to believe in myself as a new mum….for that I am grateful.” Gina M.
“We first contacted Danielle in the hope of her being our Doula when I was 6 weeks pregnant, she supported us from day one and it still supporting us with our baby. She is friendly, caring and professional. She enabled us to make informed decisions about pregnancy and the type of birth we wanted without pushing her own views onto us. She attended antenatal appointments with me when my husband was working away and was always on the end of the phone for advice and still is. Her one to one antenatal classes were fantastic and tailored to us. I also attended her aquanatal yoga which was so much fun and gave me great tools for labour.
Danielle gave myself and my husband the confidence in birthing and being new parents. She enabled us to have a wonderful home birth and an incredibly positive birth experience, something I never thought possible beforehand. I’d highly recommend Danielle and if we are blessed with another baby in the future, we won’t hesitate to book her as our Doula again!” Fran H
