Dana Fast, Birth Doula, Gentle Birth Educator

Dana first became interested in birth work after she experienced birth and the postnatal period herself. She gain a new understanding of what women go through and ultimately need during that journey. Her empathy turned into a passion. This sent her in search of a way that she could provide the support and strength she believes every birthing person deserves to have as they travel the path of childbearing and parenting.

Dana has a strong belief in the ability of the human body to birth. She believes that in a normative birthing experience, there can be peace and strength and positive memories. Whatever a person chooses as their definition of positive for their birth, it is important to Dana to help them achieve that.

Her goals are to empower women to find the strength to bring new life into the world, knowing they have a voice, choices and options. She is determined to support birthing teams to feel confident and informed throughout the birth experience so that they can carry that forward into parenthood.

Teaming up with a group of like minded birth workers that bring a variety of expertise and experience to the table, seemed like the most natural next step in her journey as a Birth Doula. She is excited to have a strong support team around her, so that she can always bring her very best self to each birth.

Living in the Anola area, she is close enough to Winnipeg to support clients there, but is also comfortable supporting birthing families in the many surrounding towns from Steinbach to Beausejour!

Dana also teaches the In Tune Mindfulness for Coping through Birth & Beyond class!
