My name is Danielle Eslami and I wanted to create a space where women feel inspired to be the strongest version of themselves. My whole life I have been told I was an old soul and surrounded myself around all different walks of life. To not only grow and learn from their experiences, but also encourage and be a listener and friend are amongst the things I've found to be the most settling. Staying rooted to these essentials (to listen, to learn, and to grow) have helped shape who I am as a woman today.
For as long as I can remember, I have always had a creative drive that fueled my passion for simplistic ingenuity. Growing up as a dancer, I have always felt that story-telling through movement and actions was just as effective as telling a story, but in reality more expressive. This expression helped me choose my first pursuit as a massage therapist. I found inspiration in relieving life's stresses and tension with my hands alone. Becoming enveloped in that brief, but calming moment helped me better understand the body and how it responds and for me to adapt to exactly what the body needs in that "time". Amongst the many certified modalities that I practiced, I grew most fond of both aromatherapy and pre-natal massage. Aromatherapy was fascinating because you could invoke a range of emotions and feelings with scent alone. As for my certification in pre-natal massage, what intrigued me most was watching a woman's body take on a new form as it grew another life. There was a different, but very real satisfaction making an expectant mother at ease, even if only for a brief period of time. This connection helped me to realize that I had a deeper calling to serve bump, birth, and beyond.
Fast forward a few years and I was lucky to find my biggest supporter and best friend; my husband. I realized that being with him, it is more important than ever to be both heard and supported. We were so lucky to be on the same page when it came to our family chapter in life. Nine long (or short depending on experience) pregnancy months helps you refine your thoughts and desires like no other experience in life. I loved feeling supported during my pregnancy and only wanted to surround myself with positive thoughts. I hope I am able to help you feel supported during this special time.
Everyone's pregnancy and birth is different and what works for one woman could be radically different from the next. That is what makes birth so interesting and special at the same time. My goal is to set in motion a birth plan that works best for you and is a combination of informative research from my end and a comforting decision on your end and all the pieces in between will come together. If you've read thus far, and have any questions whatsoever when it comes to birth or anything else, I am here for you and would love to talk!
