My story as a postpartum doula started when I gave birth to my daughter and had my partner and my sister by my side. After that I felt a calling and trained with Conscious Birthing in November 2018.
Since I was a little girl I was always helping with babies and loved being involved with newborn’s care. However becoming a new mother, changed my perspective on a postpartum period and the importance of the healing process, care and support a new mum needs. In the modern western culture, we put so much emphasis on the pregnancy and the birth itself and then on newborn’s care, that a mother is somehow forgotten in the process.
In my postpartum Doula role, my passion for nutrition, psychology, women and baby care comes together to offer a unique set of skills. I aim to support new mother to recover, heal and the most important of all: to listen to her heart and wisdom she holds within. The fourth trimester is a wonderful time for the new family and I would love to be part of it by providing emotional support, breastfeeding support and an extra pair of hands with anything you need help with.
I am also a member of Scottish Doula Network and I speak Polish and English.
