What is a Doula and what do they do?
“A space holder, a sister”
Originating from ancient Greek, the term “doula” means “a serving and helping woman.” In the past, women had their “sisters” to support them during childbirth, and this tradition still exists in many cultures today. At Stralende Mama, our doulas are experienced and knowledgeable women who meet with you during pregnancy to understand your birth preferences.
Our doula will provide emotional and practical support throughout your pregnancy journey, ensuring that your desires and wishes are respected and honored. Even if you don’t have a partner, our doula can assist you with practical matters and provide the support you need. Together, we will create a memorable and empowering pregnancy and birth experience tailored to your needs and desires.
If you have specific requirements that differ from the support outlined in our package, we are more than happy to discuss a custom package that suits you best. Our main objective is to understand your unique needs and create a comfortable and enjoyable experience of support and assistance. To ensure continuous support, I occasionally work with a backup doula who will be available when you give birth.
At Stralende Mama, we believe that every mother deserves compassionate and personalized support throughout her pregnancy and birth journey. Let us be your trusted guide as you embark on this transformative experience.
