As a doula, I offer my help to prepare and guide new parents and their birthing companions. Each parent deserves to be informed and to be supported regardless of the way in which the new baby arrives.

My doula services are holistic – integrating all layers of existence - and inclusive. This means, the support will meet needs on different levels (practical, physical, emotional). A pregnant person, his/her birthing partner or a newborn parent might wish for different help on different moments.

Your preferences and needs are the starting point of my services and I treat them with confidentiality and respect.

My doula services will always depend on your wishes and situation.

My guiding principles:
– providing you with an atmosphere of trust, rest and support

– natural remedies for common ailments

– home cooked, highly nutritious food or recipe ideas

– rituals and belly binding

– guided meditations and breathing exercises

– practical and holistic support at your home

My services as your doula can be, depending on your wishes:
- sessions to talk through your birth preferences and create a birth plan
- a session to speak about a certain topic that comes up during pregnancy
- a session to prepare yourself for your postpartum period
- guided meditations, pranayama breathing exercises and pregnancy yoga
- full support during labour
- a session to integrate your birthing experience and find answers to postpartum questions
- analogue birth and postpartum pictures
- breastfeeding support
- practical postpartum support
- freshly made food postpartum
- placenta services

• Don't hesitate to contact me if you think you can benefit from my services, no matter where you live. I am sure we will find a way for you to get the support you are wishing for. It is important that you feel safe and comfortable. I offer one meeting session for free, so we can see if we´re a match. If not, I might be able to recommend you to another doula I know that might be a better fit based on your wishes.

Doula: prenatal, birth and postpartum package - 23h 59m

Pregnancy & Birth Doulas
As your doula, I will:

As your doula, I will:

1. guide you prenatally preparing for birth.
This takes form on different levels with a focus on providing you information to make decisions for yourself and helping to get physically and emotionally ready to birth your child. There are three sessions included in this package.

2. be present at birth from the moment you wish me to be there.
We have talked through birth ahead, to create a setting where you can feel safe. I will hold space to maintain this safe space, and assist to offer comfort and relaxation - the best recipe to smoothen your birthing experience. I am also here to help the birthing partner to help you, and to manage practical things in the birthing space. I will help to remind caregivers of your wishes, if needed, so you can relax more. I will help in communication if wished for. I cannot make decisions for you.

3. offer postpartum support.
For a smooth transition with your baby arriving, I will offer postpartum help. This can be practical help for you or your family or other children, help in the household (with a focus on nutrition), emotional support for all family members to integrate the big change while recovering from birth, belly binds, gentle massage and belly warming compresses. I offer breastfeeding support and can help you to find caregivers and specialists if needed. Two postpartum sessions of 1,5 hour each are included in the package, as well as a warming Ayurvedic meal with each session.
