I invite you to individual consultations. During a meeting with me, you will receive substantive support on the course of childbirth, which will allow you to understand how beautiful this process is and give you the faith and strength to experience it fully. I will guide you on how to prepare your head, body and soul for childbirth.
Examples of consultation areas:
- preparing a birth plan
- home birth – how to prepare?
- vaginal birth after caesarean – how to increase the chances of a successful vbac (vaginal birth after caesarean)?
- support in getting over your fears
- preparation for perineal self-protection (my personal protocol)
- assertiveness in the delivery room – how to communicate your needs?
- rights in the birthing room and informed consent for medical procedures
- discussing previous births (causes of complications, loss of health or life of the baby)
What else can we talk about?
- you are pregnant and have some anxiety
- you are convinced that a natural childbirth is best for your baby, but you are worried about your perineum
- you want to avoid a caesarean section, but don’t know how to go about it
- you dream of a beautiful water birth, but don’t know what to do to make that dream come true
- you are approaching 40 weeks and feel increasing anxiety, because the birth “isn’t happening” and the peer pressure is hard to bear
- you have had a difficult birth, but no one has explained to you what happened and why
- you want to know the reasons for the complications that affected you or your baby
- you would like to give birth at home, but there are obstacles to this plan
- you want to cry because you feel your plan is falling apart and you have no one to talk to
…then I offer you my support.

DOULA – BIRTH SUPPORT
I will help you to tame your fears and prepare for unexpected situations. I will support you physically during the birth by making sure you and your husband/partner are comfortable in the broadest sense. I will support your choices, providing you with information based on current scientific knowledge if necessary, so that you can make informed decisions.
In the postpartum period, I will support you in feeding and caring for your little one, as well as taking care of your environment.

The topics of the meetings are decided together according to your individual needs.

NATURE IN DROPS
One way to put yourself in a relaxed state during labour (and beyond) is to use aromatherapy. Wild orange will evoke the scent of Christmas, frankincense of the temple, lemon will energise, mint will refresh. But essential oils are not just aromas… They are natural substances 50-70 times more potent than their herbal counterparts! By acting with them directly on the skin or internally, many pregnancy complaints and birth situations can be dealt with quickly. Because pregnant women and newborns are very delicate creatures, I have chosen essential oils of the highest purity, which are CPTG-certified. This means that they have no additives/preservatives or impurities. I use essential oils on a daily basis when caring for my family’s health and emotions.
