Michel Odent, French gynecologist
You are pregnant! A very fun, but also exciting time. A doula will help you and your partner prepare for the delivery. Because you already get to know her during your pregnancy, she knows your wishes and you build a relationship of trust with her. A doula offers calmness and confidence. During the delivery she remains continuously and is your helping hand. Women who gave birth with a doula look back on this experience more positively.
My name is Dominique. For years I support women during childbirth. First as a midwife, later as a doula. During pregnancy I come to your house a number of times and we get to know each other better. Because at birth not only a child is born, but also you as a parent. No matter what happens, I will be continuously present during the delivery! It is precisely this uninterrupted support that has a positive effect on the birth process, known as the 'doula effect'.
