A doula works to reduce fear and instill courage and strength so that you feel safe and strong before the birth of your child. With a doula by your side, the conditions for a positive birth experience are optimized.
Why a doula?
Feeling supported during childbirth provides peace and safety, which in turn increases the possibility of a positive experience. We know that a positive birth experience strengthens your self-esteem, your relationship and contributes to a good start to parenthood.
In todays maternity care, you are offered a high level of medical security. It is a challenge for the staff on site to also provide emotional safety, as there is a high workload and a lack of relationship-based care. Our mission as doulas is to help you navigate the birthing process, provide continuous support and be the person in the room who focuses on your well-being. We assist with information, such as what you can expect at the hospital, remind you of your options and guide you in comfort measure strategies. We continuously monitor how you feel emotionally, physically and mentally throughout the birth.
We have a lot of experience and carry many tips and tricks -but the important thing is not what we do but how we make you feel.
Vi bistår med information, tex vad ni kan förvänta er på sjukhuset, påminner om era valmöjligheter och guidar i strategier för smärthantering. Vi stämmer löpande av hur ni har det emotionellt, fysiskt och mentalt genom hela förlossningen.
Vi har mycket erfarenhet och bär på många tips och tricks - men det viktiga är inte vad vi gör utan hur vi får er att känna.

What does doula mean?
A doula is a support person for both you who are pregnant and for you who are a partner and/or expectant father or mother.
A doula uses her calmness, her presence and all the knowledge that exists around childbirth.
A doula works to reduce fear and instill courage and strength so that you feel safe and strong before the birth of your child.
A doula has no medical responsibility and does not give medical advice, but is an expert in being a support and a bridge between the expectant parents and maternity care.
