We did our own research and scoped out different hypnobirthing facilitators landing on Danielle’s page her bio spoke to us and we felt instantly at ease with choosing her and Sacred Space. Danielle followed up our online enquiry with a prompt phone call and I could tell from the initial conversation that we made the right choice for us and our Bub. The sessions we done over two full days (one in group and one private) both sessions were very well planned out, executed, filled with knowledge and fun. As a two-mom family we felt welcomed and included throughout the process. In fact, as the non-birthing mother, I felt included & educated on my role for our babes birthing day. Thank you Danielle for being a huge part on this journey for us!

Me and my partner are expecting our first baby and I am so grateful we attended the hypnobirthing class. We will now go into my birth feeling prepared and as educated as we could be. Thank you Danielle!

We completed the wonderful two day course which gave us so much vital information going into birth. We both feel informed and empowered to make decisions that best suit us and our baby over the coming weeks and through labour & birth.Highly recommend doing this course.

I was recommended to see Danielle at your sacred space by my chiropractor (thanks Belinda) and I’ve never felt more at ease on my birth journey to help bring my little man earthside. I was supported by my mumma where we shared a special bonding session together - I know she has too walked away feeling at ease and confident on how to make me relax and calm during this experience. Thank you Danielle for all that you do with Hypnobirthing and giving us the guided tools to have a magical birthing experience.

My husband and I just did the group hypnobirthing course with Danielle for our second pregnancy. So wish we'd done it for our first. It was very informative, supportive and encouraging. We both feel more confident to have the necessary conversations with our obstetrician and midwives to advocate for the birth we want. We particularly enjoyed all the extra tools and techniques for relaxation, massage and natural pain relief options that we feel will make a difference during labour and birth. Would highly recommend this to all pregnant women and their birth partners.

My husband and I did Danielle’sPositive Birthing Hypnotherapy Course and absolutely loved it. We feel informed and empowered. We are excited to apply the techniques we have learned and use our new found knowledge in our upcoming birth. As a FTM I have barely any nerves following the course and feel more excited than anything. I’d recommend hypnobirthing to anyone expecting and Danielle is an excellent person to have in your corner when navigating through what can be an overwhelming time.

Highly recommend this course. As first time parents it can be so overwhelming. You're listening to what midwives have to say, doctors, friends and other family members and you often think your options are limited or restricted. In some situations they are, but you still have the right to make your own decision. Get informed, get educated and get confident. This is exactly what this course is about. Be in control.The skills learnt in this course are invaluable. You will find you use them more often then you realise.Danielle has done an amazing job. My wife and I participated in the first session in a group environment and our second session privately, she is so easy to talk to, so knowledgeable and shares her own experiences making the experience relateble.I can not recommend this course enough. Just do it!
08:22 20 Jun 21
Very happy with the coarse me end my partner have done. I was literally dragged there kicking and screaming but by the end of the FIRST day I felt well informed and came out smarter and feel prepared. Knowledge is power. Know your rights. This coarse is well worth it. Give it a shot!!

Being a first time mom I found Danielle's program very informative and helpful. She has also shared some of her own stories, experiences and research which has been valuable and educational. She includes the birthing partners as well which has been a big help. Danielle is very passionate and I have also enjoyed following her instagram page. I am very grateful to have found her program!
10:55 19 Apr 21
Danielle is a very thorough teacher who blends the scientific knowledge with the practical skills throughout the course. We feel empowered, prepared and excited for our baby's birth and I'm so grateful to Danielle for helping us in our journey.
04:05 02 Apr 21
Thank you so much Danielle for your class. I wouldhighly recommend this to anyone, the information you receive is like no other. I am feeling much more confident going into birth now with the knowledge myPartner and I now have thanks to Danielle. 😊

My partner and I were a little hesitant signing up to a hypnobirthing class. This is our first pregnancy and we've approached it from a place of research and evidence, and even though we were aware of hypnobirthing and its benefits, we were concerned it would be bias towards a drug-free, "natural" birth and that our practitioner would be a little too free-spirited for our liking! Due to this, we spent a lot of time looking into the various hypnobirthing practitioners in Brisbane to find someone we felt would be aligned with our balance of wanting the hypnobirthing techniques and evidence-based medical knowledge, and this is when we came across Danielle at Sacred Space.Danielle's delivery of the content was perfect for us. You can clearly see and hear her passion, but at no point did she put anyone on the spot and we were able to participate as much or as little as we felt comfortable with. I think this is really important for the birth partners, particularly on day 1 when maybe there have been a few dragged along!For me personally, I feel like society often puts drug-free, vaginal births on a pedestal and as a result, many women often walk away from that experience feeling like a failure when they've gone with the drugs or ended up with a c-section, however attending Danielle's classes really helped me to reinforce what my partner and I already instinctively knew - that it doesn't matter how you birth your baby, what matters is that you made the best choice for you and your baby based on your informed decision. The information Danielle provided in regards to navigating our birth in the hospital system through asking the right questions and coming to an informed decision that's right for the three of us was honestly worth its weight in gold. We both feel so much more confident in speaking up and asking questions now and my partner is ready to support and advocate for me.At no point during Danielle's class did we get the impression that a particular birth experience was being pushed on us which we both truly appreciated and we both left the class feeling full of excitement to meet our little girl and ready to handle whatever is thrown at us.
05:15 18 Mar 21
My husband and I highly recommend Danielle and the Hypnobirthing classes!She covered everything you need to know to prepare for birthing, including:- information on hormones,- how to have a positive mindset and environment for birthing,- relaxation techniques (acupressure, hypnosis, massage, breathing, visualisations, positive affirmations),- explaining common procedures and interventions during labour/birthing,- how to ask questions, make informed decisions and advocate for your birthing preferences,- what to expect before, during and after birth etc.Danielle was very supportive and encouraging, making everyone in the class feel at ease and walking out with a newfound confidence - empowered for their birthing journey.
02:55 04 Mar 21
We recently had the pleasure of doing a private class with Danielle. Danielle is incredibly knowledgeable and does a fantastic job of delivering evidence-based information in a manner that is accessible and enjoyable for all. Even as a student midwife and second time mum, I emerged from these classes feeling more confident, knowledgeable and equipped to have a positive birth experience. I am so looking forward to my birth and know that Danielle has been a critical part of this process. If you are local to Brisbane I would not hesitate to recommend Danielle. She is warm, friendly and an absolute asset to our birth community.
02:27 01 Mar 21
My partner and I just wanted to say thank you again for the knowledge and positive mindset you have empowered us with! I’ve had so much stress and fear from my “high risk” health conditions but being able to talk to you and taking your course has completely relaxed me and now I’m looking forward to a calm birth. We are so excited for our little Hypnobub and so thankful we found your course 💕

I attended at private course with Danielle as part of a birth team. As a Doula, I am there to support and advocate for the mother and her wishes. The tools and support, plus genuine care for her clients that Danielle provides is truly awesome. There are so many things that we could do and read to be prepared, but she listens to the needs of the clients and leads them through the choices and preparation to achieve their best birth experience. Even if things do not go as planned, the tools are even more valuable, as these are the times we need them most, when things outside our control change, we can learn through this course to manage our inner selves on this important journey. Thank you for the important work you do.

My fiancé and I did a hybrid group/private session with Danielle in preparation for the birth of our daughter in April. I actually surprised myself when I fell pregnant that my mindset shifted and I wanted to experience childbirth with minimal medical intervention. Danielle and the positive birthing course have only reinforced that. It wasn’t until we attended the course that my fiancé was like “oh I get it now”. You learn so much, all about the hormones that regulate birth, positive thinking and affirmations, relaxation and breathing techniques, techniques your partner can do to help you during labour, how to advocate for yourself in a medicalised birthing situation and how to help bring baby into the world with different positions and movements. I can also see that it will help if things don’t go to plan as we will be empowered to ask the questions about the procedures that are being recommended. I would recommend this course to any parents to be and we are both so excited to meet our baby girl!
09:06 11 Feb 21
My wife and I recently participated in the hypno birth classes with Danielle, it was such a great experience and I personally as a husband walked away with a lot more knowledge on birthing , birth techniques to help my partner and our rights to what we can and can’t do in the public health system. Well worth it, thanks again 🤙

Where do I begin with how amazing this course has been for my partner and I?I was looking for something different this pregnancy (3rd) as I knew I needed to do more work to prepare for this birth. When I put a post out in a local Facebook group Danielle commented with her website. I had looked at all the other reccomendations but nothing spoke to me the way Danielle's did so I sent her a message. From the moment we had a phone conversation I felt instantly comfortable and able to express my concerns and fears surrounding this birth due to 2 previous traumatic birth experiences. Danielle suggested private classes for my partner and I as it would be more personal and tailored to us and our experiences. I said to her I will have to ask my partner as it was a lot of money but messaged her back half an hour later with a definite yes and honestly money hasn't been a second thought since. It has been worth what we paid and more! We have learnt so much about pregnancy, birth and post-partum then I thought we would given its not our first rodeo. My partner and I have become closer using the techniques we've learnt like light touch, anchoring, acupressure points and meditation. The two classes we had opened up lots of conversations that we hadn't had and hearing how our previous births effected him really made me feel closer to him so I thank Danielle so much for that. The most valuable thing for me that I have learnt is how to advocate for myself and my baby, how to have conversations with my care providers about what I'm comfortable/not comfortable with consenting to. If it wasn't for Danielle and her positive birth course then I would still be the nervous, fearful women when going into my midwife appointments. Now I walk in with all this knowledge, confidence and I feel empowered to be making informed decisions for myself, my baby and my birth. Thank you so much Danielle, you have really changed our lives and that sounds so dramatic but it's true.If you are thinking of giving the positive birth program a try then I definitely reccomend it! Nothing beats being informed, confident and empowered when preparing for birth.
12:16 31 Jan 21
I can’t recommend this course enough!!! I knew it was something I really needed, but wow. I can’t even explain how much doing this course has helped us. Firstly a lot of my anxiety and fears around birth have shifted and I’m looking forward to continuing to improve myself with all the resources provided. I feel closer to my partner more than ever. Ive seen a big shift in his self confidence, he now knows what he can do now and how he can help. We’ve learnt a lot about birth education and how to speak up for ourselves, I honestly couldn’t put a price on this experience. So grateful for everything that Danielle teaches, she’s amazing!
10:03 15 Jan 21
Cannot recommend this program enough. A calm and judgement free environment for Mumma’s, partners and baby’s to connect and learn. If you are looking for a program to enable you AND your partner to make informed choices about pregnancy/birth this is for you
23:35 10 Dec 20
Admittedly, I was sceptical about hypnobirthing when my partner suggested it. As a first-time father to be, my biggest concerns are the safety of our child and the safety of my partner. During our sessions with Danielle I realised that hypnobirthing is not about going against the grain, it is about providing parents with confidence. We are feeling far less anxious about our upcoming birth experience. The real value in hypnobirthing is seeing my partner feel more empowered, relaxed and prepared – ultimately resulting in a safer environment for our child to enter the world. Thank you, Danielle.
08:12 07 Dec 20
I highly recommend all expecting mamas participate in the Sacred Space Hypnobirthing Program!Unfortunately due to all of the horror stories we hear and movies we watch, like most new mothers I was experiencing some fear and anxiety around birth.After completing the two day program my husband and I left feeling very informed and positive.We were gifted with some great hypnobirthing soundtracks, learnt lots about birth, breathing techniques and relaxation methods to prepare us leading up to birth and during labourI was also able to release the fears I had about the birth and after the birth which felt like a big weight lifted from my shoulders.I can confidently say that my husband and I both feel ready and excited for the day our baby girl chooses to arrive.A big thank you to Danielle for everything she shared with us!
01:37 07 Dec 20
This was a beautiful course, great energy and great knowledge. As a couple we are much more informed and confident leading into birth thanks to this! Thank you so much, very much recommend to all those expecting 👶🏻
02:33 02 Dec 20
What an amazing experience! When I originally tried to sign up for the group classes, I realised they had been completely booked out. I was feeling defeated but then Danielle called me and offered a private lesson where she came to my house and we did an intensive course. To say it’s changed my view on birth is an understatement. I went into Hypnobirthing basically only wanting an option for pain management without drugs and came out of it with a completely different view on the whole thing! Myself and my partner now feel so empowered and confident that we have the knowledge and power to advocate for exactly how we want the birth to be. Thank you so much Danielle! I can’t wait to put all of this into practice and share my birth story with you!
09:56 23 Nov 20
Firstly what an amazing lady Danielle is. We could not complete our original course due to my husband falling ill and Danielle went above and beyond to make time for us privately. Secondly the course is just absolutely fantastic. You can do all the research online about birth and think you know all the right things, but after doing our hynobirthing we learnt so much more than we imagined. These classes are invaluable. I feel so comfortable to be able to ask the right questions at appointments and I feel so confident to be able to bring our beautiful baby into this world with a strong and peaceful mindset. I could not brag about these classes and Danielle enough.
11:04 01 Nov 20
Right from the first interaction Danielle was beyond helpful and informative. During our session she was kind, patient and super friendly. She 110% gave my partner and I the confidence we needed about our birth and helped us with a variety of techniques we could use during labour and beyond. There are so many things we learnt in our time with Danielle that will be completely invaluable to us. We both walked away feeling so much better about the whole birthing experience in general and simply cannot recommend anyone more highly. Please, if your expecting, do yourself a favour and book in with these guys! Best decision we ever made!
05:24 19 Oct 20
I can’t recommend Danielle’s Hypnobirthing course highly enough. It exceeded my expectations of gaining knowledge to assist me in having a positive birth. As a first time (anxious) mum, I was doubting myself that I could even go through with a natural birth let alone without trying to use pain relief - now my mind frame has completely changed and I feel 100% ready to have the natural and safe birth I am dreaming of!
02:45 19 Oct 20
The hypnobirthing course we did with Danielle was amazing and so informative. My partner and I learnt so much and now feel so positive and confident leading up to the birth of our first baby. Danielle’s passion and enthusiasm for her client’s to achieve a positive birth experience is inspiring and infectious. I’ll be recommending this course to all expecting parents.
10:01 18 Oct 20
My partner and I were lucky to have Danielle as our guide for hypnobirthing, we can't thank her enough for providing informed valuable information, positive guidance and knowledge. Thank you again Danielle
21:04 02 Oct 20
I wish everyone could do this class before having a baby, Danielle is a wealth of knowledge and answered every question we had, i feel excited and confident going in to labour with our second child i only wish i had known about hypnobirthing with our first child and it may have been a complete different birthing experience.
00:51 27 Sep 20
Thanks to Danielle and her positive hypnobirthing classes, at 37 weeks pregnant, I'm am honestly feeling so ready and excited for the birth of my baby. Everyone asks me, 'omg are you scared etc etc', but I quickly shut them down and explain I'm made to do it!! I started my pregnancy with the mindset of, 'what will be will be' and knew nothing about pregnancy or birth, but soon realised this was a bad idea as I wouldn't have any knowledge to make the best decisions for myself or my baby.
22:55 14 Sep 20
We had a really great time doing the group hypnobirthing class. We feel informed about our birth choices and I feel empowered about my options for birth and how to have a positive birth experience. I feel far more connected to my husband and am excited about his role in the birth, we really bonded over the experience and he said he took a lot out of the class despite some initial reservations. Danielle is a great, fair teacher and makes everyone feel welcome. I will use the materials provided during the birth to keep me grounded. I feel more confident about birthing my baby than ever before and have recommended the class to all my pregnant friends already
03:33 10 Aug 20
We did this hypnobirthing course with Danielle recently and even though this is our third bub I can't tell you how valuable my husband and I found it. We couldn't be more excited to go through the birthing process again with all the new techniques we've learned.
00:36 18 Jul 20
We booked the online training along with a private one-on-one session with Danielle from Sacred Space. The online training is informative, but we got so much more from our one-on-one session. Danielle is knowledgeable, kind, supportive and really tailored the session to our needs. We both feel much more prepared for labour and birth. I highly recommend Danielle and Sacred Space Hypnobirthing.
08:16 11 Jul 20
Danielle is an amazing coach and Hypnobirthing guide. We attended her classes this year and left feeling inspired, educated and empowered to have the kind of birth we felt comfortable with. Our fears, questions and unknowns were resolved and we are genuinely excited to use the tools she has given us to help us bring our boy into the world. No matter if you’re a first time mum or have done it all before, there is something everyone can benefit from in her classes. Most importantly it’s not just about mum, but involves her birth partner, making them a key part of the journey, which for my partner was really exciting.A must do for any women about to give birth ❤️
22:52 24 Jun 20
Danielle has been an invaluable part of my process for my second pregnancy. Having her ongoing support, compassion and knowledge has been amazing and such a source of confidence and faith in the process and in my own body. Highly recommend her!
00:08 22 Jun 20
We cannot recommend Danielle highly enough. She has been such a pleasure to work with. Her extensive knowledge, training and coaching techniques have given myself and my wife the confidence we need to ensure a calm, positive and memorable birthing experience. Having given birth to two beautiful children herself, both with very different set of circumstances, she not only speaks from a place of education but from first hand experience as well. She is truly passionate about what she does and this shows in her enthusiasm when presenting the information. Overall we had a very enjoyable experience, the course was both interactive and informative. 5 stars!Thanks again, we look forward to sharing our story with you when the big day comes :)
23:24 16 Jan 20
I highly recommend Danielle from Your Sacred Space. Danielle is passionate, warm, caring and knowledgeable about all things birth. She really empowers you with the knowledge to aim for the birth you want and throughout the course equips you and your partner with a set of tools that you need for a calm relaxed birth. The program has equipped us with how we can achieve a relaxed, empowered, and positive labour and birth experience no matter what turn our birthing journey may take.We are so glad we did the course through Danielle, we continue to receive follow up support and found the whole experience invaluable.
04:16 08 Dec 19
We are preparing for our third baby and have recently done hypnobirthing with Danielle at Sacred Space Hypnobirthing.Danielle is so genuine and engaging. We did hypnobirthing with our second and now with our third. We wish we had of done Hypnobirthing with our first child, we may have had a different birth. We learnt so much and realise that saying yes to things that care providers offer can cause a snowball effect and not such great birth experiences.I cannot recommend this course enough, all parents should do it, regardless of if it is your first, second or third!
05:52 07 Oct 19
Danielle is an amazing birth educator. She supports families in their choices about birth. Navigating the birth system without the information to make informed decisions is scary. Positive Birthing is about a supported and informed experience , highly recommended for every birthing family.
23:28 16 Aug 19
I can’t recommend Danielle and her course enough. I find it’s one of things where you wonder if it’s worth spending the time and money, and for us I can’t imagine going into birth without the techniques Danielle taught us in our toolkit.My favourite part of both my partner and I attending the course was that my partner left with a real appreciation and more realistic expectations of what the birth experience might be like and what his role would be.Personally though, my biggest takeaway was probably the fear release and building on my positive mindset going into birth.Danielle teaches in a professional yet lighthearted and casual way which really suited us. I’ll also add that she squeezed us in at late notice and held a personal class just for us and went all out.If you’re trying to work out which classes you want to do before birthing, I’d highly recommend putting Danielle’s Hypnobirthing class at the top of your list.
01:50 13 Aug 19
5 stars Release & healing! Danielle took my husband & I through some amazing birthing techniques to start, preparing us for labour due any day. After losing my first baby I decided to also have hypnotherapy to release my fears around birthing & the health of my rainbow baby. What an incredible experience, I finished my session with Danielle feeling weightless & full of good energy. All negativity & fear had disappeared by the time I opened my eyes, I’m now so excited to meet my healthy little boy as I know it will be a birth full of so much love. Thank you so much!
06:41 20 Jan 19
Highly recommend this course to anyone aiming for a positive birthing experience. Danielle shares her wealth of knowledge with a relaxed and relatable approach, tailored to each parent/couple eagre to learn more about how this can be achieved. This has helped us greatly in preparation & empowerment for our baby's 'birthday' <3
03:14 13 Jan 19
After going through the hypnobirthing course with Danielle, I feel so much more educated on how women's bodies work and just what they are capable of doing during childbirth. Danielle is extremely knowledgeable and provides plenty of techniques to assist in your hypnobirth. If you're considering a hypnobirth, I highly recommend doing this course with Danielle.
06:37 04 Jan 19
I got hypnosis to help quit smoking. Danielle worked with me to find my triggers, tailoring my session to what I needed, to get me on my journey to becoming a non smoker. I highly recommend Sacred space hypnotherapy.
