Family

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 In modern times, this loving support has often been replaced by medical and daily routine.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. And perhaps most fundamentally, through my special training and experience as a pediatric nurse and yoga teacher, I can help you gain energy, knowledge, and confidence in this special time. For the birthing parent, the first six weeks postpartum should be reserved for healing and resting and you will need someone to nurture you so you can nurture your baby. All parents will benefit by having the presence of a doula -- someone who facilitates getting in touch with your inner sense of trust and faith in your body and instinct. It is helpful to talk about the transition and experience, and to be able to ask any question that comes to the mind. It doesn't matter if you are the birthing person or you are a new parent via surrogacy or after adoption, you need the support to have a good start into the new world of parenthood.

My Philosophy:

The connection between the care giving person and child is very strong. If the parent feels good, the baby will too. Of course it is not always that easy. But in general If you want your baby to feel good, treat yourself well and get as much help as you can. It is important that you, as a new parent, feel supported.
