Private childbirth classes

During the last six years of working as a doula I supported mor than hundred parents during the birth of their baby. Varying from home water births to inductions and (emergency) c-sections. I have seen it all.

Because I have so much experience in all these different settings, I can offer you a class that is catered to your needs and wishes. I help parents to prepare for their ‘dream’ scenario, but also teach them breathing- and relaxation techniques that help them to stay calm if things turn out different than expected.

A private childbirth class, in the comfort of your own home, is the best possible way to prepare for the birth of your baby. You will feel more confident and have trust in yourself and the process of birth.

“Denise was my doula during the birth of my first baby. As it was my first baby, I wasn’t sure what to expect during labour, how would it be and so there I realised that I made the right decision of hiring a doula. She was one person known to me whom I can trust fully and can ask for any help without any hesitation. She was very supportive, polite, warm, informative and calm. She constantly put counter pressure in the back and help me coping up with the pain. She helped me providing food & drinks. She is been extremely humble and helpful during the whole delivery and the pictures and birth story she did for me is something I cherish always. Thanks for being my doula Denise!!”Ruchi
