Danielle Syme She Births® Educator

Danielle Syme

I have been a qualified midwife, and involved in childbirth education, since the early 90’s and currently work as the team leader of a busy Midwifery Group Practice at Orange Health Service. I really enjoy being involved with birthing families, and see firsthand how important quality childbirth education is for an empowering birth experience.

I love witnessing the transformation that She Births® couples go through after attending the Weekend Course. They become fully prepared with many tools and techniques, and best of all are empowered to work together and with their caregivers to achieve a beautiful birth, no matter what unfolds.

As a mother of three, I feel so privileged and excited to be able to bring this life-changing course to couples of the Central West of NSW.

Qualifications:

  • Bachelor Nursing science
  • Graduate certificate Midwifery
  • Graduate certificate Child and Family Health
  • International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC)

If ever there was a time to pause and rejuvenate your mind, body and spirit it’s now, during pregnancy. A time for you and your partner to connect and prepare for birth together.  

Extending your She Births® Weekend Course into a Babymoon is so easy. Book your birth class in first (tickets often sell out in advance!) & then search out a few dreamy few nights accomodation. 

You will find Orange NSW has transformed from the far flung ‘West of Sydney’ to a mecca for indulgent grassroots weekends away.

Fresh air, connection to the land, gourmet experiences and big open sky. Coupled with the World’s best birth class 😉 

What’s a Babymoon?

Simply put, a babymoon is a long weekend of indulgence and blissful timeout, to celebrate your relationship as you prepare for the arrival of your baby.

She Births® Certified Educators Are Highly Recommended

I highly recommend the weekend course in Orange!

We are so lucky to have had Danielle gift us this sense of confidence and excitement about the birthing process which overrides any fear or anxiety.

Thank you so much, Danielle, without you and the She Births course I’m sure our rather large and posterior baby may not have entered the world the way we dreamed of.

We are forever grateful.

Held at The Hive in Orange

Location: Orange, Central Tablelands, NSW

The course is held within one of the finest places to work and play (and learn!) in Orange. Good vibes in amongst a community collaborative purpose-designed state of the art facility.

Located within the centre of Orange CBD.

There is room to spread out and create as much ‘social distance’ as you like. And take breaks outside in the fresh air. You will find delicious and nutritious cafes close by too!

Local Tips From Your Educator​

Here are a few tips to make the most of your weekend, whether you are coming from our of town or having a staycation: Best Coffee/Cafe : Apparently Orange has more cafes per capita than Sydney! Good Eddy is worth the trip alone – run by Maddy and her husband Toby (a barista with Melbourne roots). Byng Street Local Store is also worth adding to your insta as a cafe to enjoy the lovely timber deck and wraparound verandah out front. You have to visit JUMBLED @ The Sonic. Thoughtfully designed bright and colourful homewares. Perfect place to buy baby’s first book and pickup some unique wares for nesting. Nature trails – both long and brisk walks at Mt Canobolas National Park.

Kind Words

We did our She Births® course over a long weekend in Orange. The course was much more science and fact based than what might first appear. With just the right amount of visualisation and spiritual. But Danielle was excellent. So knowledgeable. Passionate for the subject and great ability to impart information in just the right way.

We highly recommend looking up options with Danielle in Orange and make a weekend of it. Great food. Great location. Amazing instruction.

I don’t know if any words can amount to how transformational this experience was for me. This course gave me the confidence and empowerment I needed to have the most beautiful birth I could ever imagine. Myself and my partner took part in the 2 day weekend face to face course, and it was such an amazing experience, for both of us. Read More ...

Gemma Edgar

We really appreciated how evidence-based the whole course was and respectful of all options possible from home birth / natural through to hospital and high medical intervention. We left feeling informed and empowered. Couldn't recommend She Births® more for all couples.

Sucheta G

I cannot recommend this course enough! This completely changed the way that I view birth and helped me to heal from my first traumatic birth experience. I am someone who is very interested in research and scientific studies, therefore was stoked that I was able to do a course that had been scientifically proven to result in better birth outcomes.
