What experiences have clients had with my accompaniment?

The testimonials give you a picture about it.

What is a doula anyway?
A doula is a woman experienced in childbirth who supports pregnant women who provides emotional and practical support during pregnancy, birth and the postpartum period. The doula complements the work of the midwife and does not take on any medical tasks.
Experience has shown that this form of birth support has significant effects on the birth experience. During birth, not only a child is born, but also a mother and a father, and the doula accompanies this process with great sensitivity and empathy. Read more

What does "doula" actually mean?
In its simplest translation from the Greek, a doula is an "aider/maidservant to a woman". Even in the past, experienced women have stood by the birthing women and given strength-giving support with their knowledge, calmness and care. The word is spoken: [Duula].

How much does a doula cost?

A detailed report on "Was kostet eine Doula?" has been published on my blog.

Does the health insurance company pay a contribution to an accompaniment?
It is worthwhile to check with your health insurance company whether your benefits such as birth preparation or postpartum maternity assistance are covered by your "Zusatzversicherung" (supplementary insurance).

Can my husband/partner still accompany me to the birth?
Yes, I do not only support the woman in the process of pregnancy, during birth and in the postpartum period, but I am also there for the accompanying person.

Do I also need a midwife if I choose a doula?
A midwife is responsible for the birth in medical terms. A doula complements their work. During the birth a midwife is always responsible and in the postpartum period she takes over the important tasks of control and aftercare of mother and child. A doula always works in addition to a midwife.
