What I do as a Paramana Birth Doula

First of all, I will come when you need me to attend you and your needs during your labour and birth. I will stay with you as long as it takes, guiding and coaching, bringing knowledge, non-judgmental unbiased support and a unique understanding of Birth Physiology and hospital clinical protocols learned in over 10 years of experience attending hundreds of births. With love, care, and wisdom I will be your Paramana Doula, following the principles of undisturbed birth and the basic needs of a birthing mother based on Lamaze, Leboyer and Michel Odent observations. And supporting you through parenthood with extensive continuity of care.

My approach as a Paramana Birth Doula

My holistic approach is based on emotional encouragement and physical support as well as usage of several relaxation techniques, as I am certified HypnoBirthing Educator and Yoga teacher.

I will support you prenatally, during Birth and Postpartum, including Breastfeeding. For this purpose, I use my knowledge of Acupressure, Aromatherapy (with only organic essential oils), Spinning Babies, Homeopathy for childbirth, Rebozo, using positions prior and during labour, counter-pressure, visualization,  effective Breathing techniques and Lactation education.

In preparing the mother and her partner extensively prenatally, we will work to build your confidence, self-trust and knowledge of the birth process, to have your own choices and voices heard. My wish is to help you to find your own way to birth your baby and to provide the tools to birth your baby on your own terms.
