Doula: for a good feeling about your birth

Doula, I don't do that, I am. As a doula (or birth coach) I assist parents. Before, during and after childbirth. Together we ensure a positive experience. I am not there for the medical part, but rather for the emotional part of childbirth. With my help, you can look back on the birth with a good feeling and make the most of the exciting transition to life as parents!

I often use the rebozo to massage mom's pelvis and thus bring relaxation to her entire body.

During childbirth: confidence and strength

During the birth I will be there as soon as you need me. Expectant parents do not always realize that they are often alone during contractions. After all, midwives have more tasks to perform, especially if other deliveries are in progress. But as a doula I will be by your side all the time. I am a permanent and trusted point of contact and know your story, background and wishes.

Together we have looked in advance at your wishes regarding the course of the birth. A doula is there to speak up for you and help you remember your wishes. A kind of lawyer!

And even if you have a birth plan, no birth goes exactly according to plan. As a doula, I help you deal with unexpected events, so that you do not have to worry unnecessarily.

The concept "doula" 

A Doula is a professional, non-medically trained birth coach who has experience with childbirth and is well informed about it. She provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to a woman and her partner during pregnancy, childbirth and the postpartum period.
