Doula Denise - Doula packages

Amsterdam, Netherlands

Description

♥︎ Birth is big, amazing and can even be magical. It’s an immense honor to be invited by expecting parents to the birth of their baby. As long as I can remember it fascinated me that a body can grow a baby and then open up to give birth to this baby. 

One evening I stumbled upon the phenomenon ‘doula’ and as soon as I read the description of the work of a doula, every cell in my body told me: this is you! I had to listen to this voice and started my doula journey in 2014.

Ever since, I’ve prepared hundreds of parents for birth and witnessed more than 150 babies come into this world. Over the years I have seen births of all sorts: home births, hospital births, water births, twin-births, cesarean sections and so on. But it never ever gets boring, I absolutely love supporting families during the birth of their babies!

Have a look at my profile to learn more about me and my whole catalogue of services. I look forward to hearing from you!

Perfect for last minute clients or when you just want to book my support during the birth of your baby.

♥︎ Introductory meeting
♥︎ 2 prenatal meetings
♥︎ Unlimited support via phone/WhatsApp/email for questions outside meetings
♥︎ Guide to pregnancy, birth and beyond in Amsterdam
♥︎ 24/7 on call from week 38
♥︎ TENS machine on loan
♥︎ Continuous birth support
♥︎ Postpartum visit + Nutrilicious gift

~ HOW I WORK
All my packages include an introductory meeting, 24/7 on call time from week 38 of the pregnancy until your baby is born (I will make sure to be with you within an hour when the birth has started) plus the continuous support during birth. I come when you want to have me and leave when you have recovered from the birth. If you wish, you can borrow a birth ball and / or TENS device. And of course you can always call, email or WhatsApp with questions outside meetings. I am here for you!

In order to get to know each other better, we meet each other at least two times before the birth of your baby. During these appointments we talk about how things are evolving around the pregnancy and the upcoming birth and we also cover some practical matters. For example during one of the meetings we will discuss the birth wishes (birth plan) in detail. Your wishes need to be central during the birth, so I like to hear what the wishes are so I can help you to get them fulfilled as much as possible.

During the other appointment we go through the last things before I go on call for you, and I show your (birth) partner which massage and relaxation techniques I often use, so he / she knows how you can best be supported. With this meeting I am certain we will form a great team to coach you through every contraction.
