Continuous labour and birth support

Whether it is happening at home, in a hospital or birthing centre, the most important thing a woman needs during labour and birth is continuous support. With the help of a doula women are more likely to have spontaneous vaginal births and less likely to have interventions such as pain medication, epidural or c-section. Also, a doula and your partner can work together to make up your great labour support team.

Do you have some questions on your mind and would like to read up on them? You can find my Doula FAQ maybe already has the answer.

Pregnancy yoga

Doing yoga is a great way to not only become and stay fit, but also to explore body awareness. Yoga is a powerful tool in understanding what is happening in your changing body. Experiencing these changes through movement, relaxation, breathing exercises and just having fun among other pregnant women, you can influence not only the birthing process itself but also your transition into motherhood.
