What is a
Doula?

Doula Janina Keller Konstanz und online Deutsch und Englisch

The term "Doula" derives from the greek word meaning servant of a woman.

In ancient times and even today in various cultures, birthing women were being supported emotionally  and surrounded by experienced and wise women. In order to focus on looking after their newborn, their healing and restoring of energy, women were also nurtured by a caring and protective circle of women during the postpartum period. In our modern culture the importance of this precious time has been widely forgotten. Very often young mothers are left alone with the baby, other children and daily life at a very early stage. This is the gap that a doula can fill in by offering emotional and practical support during this deeply transformational time to give you and your baby the best possible start into this life. 

As a doula I support you and your family on your journey of motherhood through your pregnancy, birth and postpartum period.  My services are free of any medical responsability and can be understood as a great add on to the support that you get from midwives and obstetricians.

The focus of my work is on your emotional, practical and spiritual wellbeing, because you are very well looked after and nurtured you will also be able to nurure your baby better and regain your personal energy. If needed, I support you in taking self-determined decisions according to evidence-based facts and your own intuition or do signposting.
