I congratulate you from the bottom of my heart on your pregnancy! Having a baby is a big deal. I firmly believe that a harmonious pregnancy and a self-determined birth are irreplaceable for your baby - but also for you. Because with the birth not only a small person is born into this world, but also a woman into her mother role.
In order to support you on your way to motherhood, I work with different instruments. As Doula I am there for you during the whole pregnancy, but also during the birth for you and your partner. I work with hypnosis techniques and yoga to strengthen you in your pregnancy and prepare you for birth.
The term Doula comes from ancient Greek and means "servant of the woman" loosely translated. I am there for you in your pregnancy, during childbirth and in your puerperium.
Is a Doula worth it?
A study conducted in 17 countries in 2017 proves that a doula has a lasting effect on the birth experience. Anyone who gives birth with a birth companion has:
The numbers speak for themselves. I should like to add that, in my opinion, every woman deserves a good escort, and above all one that meets her wishes. The moment of birth is magical. The way there and the birth itself should therefore be a way of love, accompanied by security and all the support a mother-to-be desires.
As your doula I am there to accompany you through your pregnancy and during your birth. To help you to experience your dream birth and to give you security. I am your emotional support in a time that is stirring and at the same time all-embracing epic.
I live in Zurich myself and therefore offer accompaniments within a radius of about one hour. I offer the following Doula escorts:
If desired, a private HypnoBirthing birth preparation course (approx. 5 hours) can be booked. This costs together with the companion only 400.
For women who have already given birth to a child or who decide to have a doula shortly before the birth date, I offer a light version of the accompaniment.
Beside the packages I also offer a partial accompaniment. Depending on what you wish for, I can, for example, stop by in a childbed or accompany you to a preliminary talk with your doctor. Write me for a non-binding offer.
So that your birth corresponds to your wishes, I also offer coaching in which we jointly determine your birth needs, decide where you really want to give birth and which preparation is important for you.
Duration: approx. 1.5 hours
Movement, breath and relaxation - these are the holy three for a calm and self-determined birth.
The course consists of yoga (40 minutes), breathing and relaxation exercises (20 minutes) and a theoretical part of HypnoBirthing birth preparation (30 minutes).
Do you want to keep moving and fit during your pregnancy? Do you want to give yourself and your baby a little time together and get in touch with your child even more? You want to learn how to reduce fears, how to deal with pain and how to approach your birth in a positive and self-determined way? But you also want lots of tips on how to choose the right birth place for you, how to prepare your body for the birth and how to create a birth that is right for you? Then the course is the right choice for you and your child.
