Birth Doula 

Guidance and support during your pregnancy and the birth of your baby

Much of the birth process is about permission: feeling total permission to be themselves, to let down emotional and physical barriers and to let go of expectations.

Feeling completely safe with another human being allows the freedom to be one's true self: this produces feelings of empowerment that facilitate childbirth.

My focus during your pregnancy is on building our rapport and allowing the process to unfold so that you can experience full trust in your own capacity.

I am dedicated in offering unconditional understanding of your wishes, respect of your choices and support on each and every step, from the moment you hire me until our professional relationship comes to an end.

 

My place is by your side, offering emotional, informational and physical support during your pregnancy, whenever appropriate and requested but I also care for integrating your birth companion in the experience.

In supporting you I use tools that belong to my background in psychology, ayurveda and yoga therapy as well as my knowledge of aromatherapy, rebozo and spinning babies techniques. 

I offer the core of my work as Birth Doula in the "Ayu Doula Birth Support" packages: Basic, Regular and Last minute. 

 

My Ayurvedic, Yoga and Massage therapy skills are in service of your pregnancy and birth experience in the "Ayu Doula Signature Birth" packages: "Body Care & Relaxation", "Nutritional & Herbal Care", "Tension Release & Body Balance".
