My role as a doula is to bring you two closer together during birth (if this is what you wish). This is your birth, your once-in-a-lifetime experience as a couple. So if it’s mum’s wish for her partner to be her main support person I will gently guide your partner to be the best support he can be and free him of the stress and worry he might otherwise feel.
In this interview Nadine and I discuss birth as a profound teaching of compassion and love. Nadine shares with us how she facilitates more optimal birth and mother-child bonding experiences. Through her passionate work she helps us understand how an empowered birth and parenting experience also has profound cultural and societal impacts.
Ever wondered what a day in the life of a doula looks like? Why do couples want to work with doulas? How are we different from midwives? Read this interview I gave in Berlin together with my beautiful colleague Shanay Hall to find out more.
