What I can bring to you as your doula

During pregnancy, birth and beyond.

My doula commitments

I’m here to support you as you step into your new role as a parent. From preparing for birth and support during labour, to assisting with any challenges you encounter during pregancy or during those crucial first weeks with your baby. Becoming a parent and welcoming your child is a big transition. Each parent deserves support, to enjoy the fruits of this great time of learning and unlearning.

My doula services are holistic – integrating all layers of existence. This means, the support will meet needs on different levels.

I’m dedicated to supporting you holistically throughout your pregnancy, birth and postpartum journey, recognizing that practical, emotional, physical, and spiritual aspects are interconnected and essential. Together, we’ll navigate this transformative period, ensuring your well-being on every level.

My attitude is non-judgemental and non-generalizing. This work is inclusive and compassionate by nature and offers what is needed for all family members to enjoy their first weeks together as much as possible. Each person is different, each birth is different, each baby is different, each process is different. I am here to hold space and support. It is all possible and it´s all right.

Open and realistic exchange

I realize the impact of the way childbirth is portrayed in the media and cultural expectations. The reality can definitely turn out to be different, in my opinion often also way more intense, beautiful and empowering than I have ever seen in a movie. I aim for an honest representation of birth, which complements the (sometimes overrepresented) medical knowledge, media images and cultural representation of birth and postpartum. With this work I hope to weave a web of community support, for a growing awareness of everyone´s unique birthing experiences.

A gentle postpartum

As a postpartum doula, I offer my help to prepare and guide new parents the weeks after birth. Each parent deserves to be held.

The way will always match your specific needs. A newborn mother might need help in the form of natural remedies for her post birth body, or tips on how to breastfeed. Sometimes emotional support is wished for, or freshly made food in another moment (or all day long).

Sometimes a mother just needs peace, while the partner bonds with the child and a doula communicates with friends and family about the family´s wellbeing. Other mothers are helped with support in form of a ritual or sharing that helps them to understand their birthing experience or their transformation into motherhood. Sometimes it is important for the mother to connect with older siblings and someone takes care of the baby. Always, a mother deserves moments of deep relaxation to find back her strenght after giving birth.

I aim to help you to experience and embrace the incredible force and wonder of life.
