Pregnancy is a precious period. You want to feel confident, informed and surrounded with respect, love and care.
I'm a Ayelet, mother of 3, childbirth educator and a doula. My mission as your doula is to encourage you to get to know yourself, your wishes, fears and intuitions.
Prepare your mind, body, heart and partner for labour, birth and life as a family.
On this page, discover how I can support you during pregnancy and birth as a doula and childbirth instructor.
☾ How will we work together?
Firstly, after you contact me, we will meet in person to get to know each other. I'll share with you my tools and knowledge to support you on your journey towards a positive birth experience.
If we decide to work together, we will meet every 3 to 4 weeks. My goal is for you to feel empowered and equipped with all the knowledge and tools you need to feel ready and excited for your birth.
From week 37 to 42, I will be on call for your birth, available for emotional support or any questions you may have. It's important to me that you feel supported throughout your entire journey, and we will stay in touch to ensure that you have all the answers you need.
When labour begins, day or night I will come to you, whether it be at your home or hospital, and I will be with you until the end of the birth when you hold your baby in your arms, feeling calm and content.
A week after the birth, I will come to visit you to check how all of you are feeling, to offer advice or help with issues you may be facing, and most importantly, to give you a hug.
I offer several packages of birth support, as well as a postpartum support package. Please feel free to read through them and send me any questions you may have.
