The time after birth

is always an important one for a new family. In former times, friends and family were readily available to help, support, and teach the new parents. In modern times, this loving support has often been replaced by medical and daily routine. This means it is way too easy to become isolated.
Verena and baby
As a postpartum doula, I am a nurturing professional who provides informed, empathetic, and nonjudgmental support to empower the families of all kinds. I offer a unique combination of services that sets it apart from traditional doula practices. By integrating Ayurveda, Yoga, and mindfulness practice, with a background of pediatric nursing in Germany. I provides comprehensive support to new parents in a holistic and culturally diverse manner. I offer -Postpartum care for parents after childbirth, surrogate or adoption. -Loving, gentle newborn care, infant handling, soothing, feeding and sleep. -Integrated Ayurveda emphasizes balancing the mind, body, and spirit through personalized nutrition, herbal remedies, and lifestyle recommendations. By integrating Ayurvedic principles, I offer a deeper level of support and guide parents in optimizing their well-being during the transformative stages of pregnancy and early parenthood.

My Philosophy:

A baby's well-being is deeply intertwined with the well-being of their parents. Parents' emotional and mental health play a significant role in shaping a baby's emotional and cognitive development. When parents feel happy, nurtured, and safe, it is so much easier for their baby to feel the same.
And I can help you with that.

Covid-19 update

My postpartum Doula service is intimate and personal and I care about my clients very much. I am fully vaccinated and happy to help you with my in-person postpartum doula service. In addition I offer virtual online consulting and support. For my in-person service I still follow my covid guidlines. I want to encourage my clients, partners, and families to take time to work on relaxation and techniques to reduce anxiety that may be high and adrenaline levels may interact with labor and new parenting. Please get in touch with me if the stress becomes overwhelming, or if you just need to talk about your concerns. This might be a time to try some of the labor techniques for comfort and relaxation that you are planning to use in labor. Some other things that might be helpful to focus on:
