birth DOULA services
As a birth doula, I support people to prepare for birth and then accompany them while giving birth.
Here are some of the services I offer:
Support in choosing where you will give birth and navigation of the German system
Childbirth education and information about interventions and options
Movement practices to assist with birth preparation and baby positioning (and also to build strength and have fun)
Practical help prior to and during the birth
Emotional support and help to find a sense of safety during your birth
Connection with resources you might need
Debrief and limited postpartum support in the weeks following the birth
Doulas are not medical professionals and I do not take on the tasks of a midwife. If you would like more information about what a birth doula does and why you might want one, here are two links you might want to have a look at, one about the role of the doula and one about how doulas might help with pain relief in labour.
