Our Journey Together

Initial meeting

As your birth companion, it is important for us to feel connected and understood. On this complimentary meeting, I can walk you (and your partner, if desired) through my services and what you can expect and answer any questions you may have before deciding whether this is for you.

Support during pregnancy

We will typically meet twice during your pregnancy to help you getting prepared for the big day.

In the first meeting we will explore your options and preferences regarding birth. You will learn more about coping techniques, pain management and the first hours with your baby. Together we can design your Birth Plan which you can later share with your midwives and doctors, so they will know at a glance what you want and need from them. 

In the second meeting I will walk you through the last weeks of your pregnancy and teach you a few techniques to better prepare your body & mind for birth. We will visualize the birth process, so you can better recognize the first signs of labor and know what to do and when.

Birth support

This is certainly one of the most special days of your life. It is important to feel well prepared, supported, nourished for the task ahead.

I will be on call for you from 2 weeks before your due date until the birth of your baby. You can call me day and night and I will be by your side to help you physically and emotionally. I can offer breathing techniques, aromatherapy, gentle massage and other natural methods to help you find your inner peace and strength during labor. 

I can take photos of this birthday event, if you wish so.

Post-partum support

In the first month of your baby´s life I will come by to visit you once and present your birth memories pack. We can take this time to reflect on your birth experience and I can also:

  • clarify any question you may have regarding the care of your newborn;
  • help with anything you need around the house or cook you a meal;
  • stay with your baby, so that you can have a moment for yourself;
  • recommend specialists, if needed (lactation consultant, midwife, etc).

Spoiler alert: there will be some useful goodies along the way 😊

It was wonderful having Aline as a doula. I felt so cared for and am forever greateful.
