A student of 'DONA International' and teachings by Michel Odent, Debra Pascali-Bonaro and Lilliana Lamers.

Shanay was born in Western Australia, a small town south of Perth. She is now living in Berlin, Germany where she moved from New York to further pursue her interests in childbirth.

Her birth experience was a planned home-birth where Iyla Wilde was born in the presence of her midwife Cara Muhlhahn, doula Domino Kirke and partner. Never knowing birth could be like this, birth was exactly how she envisioned it, her journey and no one else's.

Through the process of a home-birth; Shanay learned how liberating birth can be with the right atmosphere which lead her to pursuit her studies. Birthing from within can be accessed by all women with the right support. 

Shanay is also a Placenta Encapsulation Specialist trained with PBi- PlacentaBenefits
