I make sure that you and your partner know all about birth and how to prepare for that.
From writing a birth plan, to making arrangements for the first postnatal weeks. We practise labor positions,
breathing, relaxation and massage techniques that will help you cope with labor. And of course I will answer all your questions. You will look forward to the birth of your baby with confidence.
Research shows that women who are continuously supported during labor have more positive outcomes. A midwife is not able to stay with you all the time. With my support you are never alone. I come when you need me and will not leave your side until the baby is born. Because of the knowledge and experience I gained over the years I am able to see to all your needs. You will feel supported and are able to give birth peacefully.
The first weeks after birth are tough. Your body endured a lot during pregnancy and birth.
By making you healthy, nutritious meals and giving you relaxing massages your body will recover quickly and you will regain your energy. Where necessary I will take care of the household and run errands. In this way you can focus your full attention on being a newborn mother and taking care of your baby.
Testimonials from previous clients
“What a delight to have Denise present at my first birth! Her calm voice assuring me is still in my head today :). She was a huge support for my boyfriend as well; without her we probably couldn’t have felt as such a team. She gave him confidence and instructions as how to support me. Denise felt what was needed before we could even express it. I am so grateful for her presence & support throughout my pregnancy and of course my labour”
“I get emotional thinking of my birth experience with Denise. She held my hand, looked into my eyes and guided my breathing which was exactly what I needed to get through my 4 day labor. I don’t know what I would have done without her. What we went through together was more intimate then what I’ve experienced with friends or family, it was amazing to have her by my side.”
“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.”
