Doula - Birth support

The word doula derives from ancient Greek and means "woman's servant". As your doula, it is my job to lovingly accompany and care for you before, during and after the birth of your baby. I do not take on any medical tasks and do not replace your midwife or doctor. Instead I support you emotionally and physically on your way to a fulfilling birth in your own power. I offer you:
 

  • 2 - 3 prenatal visit to prepare for the birth

  • advice for your questions or doubts

  • information about the birthing process, baby care and breastfeeding

  • relaxation techniques such as the traditional rebozo massage

  • on-call availability around the clock for five weeks around your due date

  • continuous support throughout your birth journey, in the hospital, at home or in the birth center

  • support with everything you need to relax during the birth, like massages, creating a soothing atmosphere, nourishing food and drinks, words of encouragement, etc.

  • help with bonding and the beginning of your breastfeeding journey

  • support and advice for your partner

  • access to my network of experts, e.g. birth photographers, therapists etc.

  • 1 - 2 follow-up meetups postpartum

  • mindfulness, reliability and loving companionship in this special time.

Please note: I am currently not offering any birth support as a doula in Frankfurt, Germany, but feel free to contact me if you would like individual birth preparation online.
