My Offer

Would you like to find a sensitive person which you meet during pregnancy and which become a confidant? A person which is supporting you, accompanies you in addition to the midwife to the place of birth you choose? Who gives you the feeling of being secure, being understood and supported? Who is there for you and your partner? Who is listening to you when you would like to talk?


I would love to be your doula and I will support you on your way to become a family. Please contact me to plan the accompaniment. 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after your due date I am on call for you 24h/day.

After our first meeting you have the choice to accept or deny me as your doula. It is essential to feel good and warm. After signing the contract, the accompaniment is binding and confirmed.

 

I will support you with natural birth or c-section, at hospital, birth center or at your home. Partly support is also possible.

I also provide support through challenging births. If your baby arrives prematurely, with handicap or even when there is loss through miscarriage or still birth, these unexpected situations can be devastating. Having additional support throughout this difficult time, can immeasurably help families gently work through the grieving process.
