Ayu Doula Amsterdam - Postpartum massages

Amsterdam, Netherlands

Description

Ayu Doula Amsterdam is born out of the wish to be present for the women, men and mothers of my Community, in the Amsterdam area.

Recently the word community has taken on a total new meaning for me: in these times it seems that the invitation is to expand our boundaries and to keep the doors open to connect at distance as if we were in front of each other.

My approach is based on listening and assessing your needs: I will be meeting you exactly where you are, so that you can safely explore new possibilities when it comes to giving birth or getting ready for the postpartum period, feeling better in your body and making healthier food and lifestyle choices.

​I'll be sharing with you some tools to make this process smooth and I'll be offering you encouragement and guidance along the way.

Holding a Master Degree in Psychology and an HBO Level Degree in Medical Science (Medische Besiskennis) and Ayurvedic Medicine, I am specialised in women's health, fertility and conception, pregnancy and postpartum care.

Here how I can help you with:

- Birth Doula & Birth preparation

I collected for you several practices that support your postpartum journey into healing: they come from different traditional cultures and all of them share the same principles of providing nourishment, warmth and care to the new mother. Each healing practice is available either at your household or in my practice, depending on the stage of your postpartum. While I advise you to make space to enjoy fully this time for your own care, if you do not wish to stay away from your baby, chances are we can find the space for you both to be taken care of.
