Birth doula
for Brno, Vyškov, Břeclav

Dear women, 

as an English speaking doula, I can help you and your partner to give birth in a foreign environment. 

If you need more comfort in a situation, where not everything being said would be clear to you, you don´t know routine in our hospitals or don´t understand doctor´s professional expressionsI could help you to get the information that you need, so that you can decide what kind of care you want to get and then focus more on yourself and your baby coming.

What it is like, to have a doula?

The first getting-to-know-each-other meeting is free of charge. You will find out how I work and what can I help you with. Then you can decide if I am the right person to support you and your partner in such a delicate moment, as birth is. 

Doula support makes a difference

If you decide to use my services in the form of "birth package", we will meet more times during pregnancy, depending on your chosen services. 

I can help you with preparation for birth, writing a birth plan, recommending exercise for an easier birth, explaining normal labor mechanism and medical procedures for interventions (if needed), prepare to breastfeed and a postpartum period with your newborn, all depending on your individual needs.

I´ll be available on-call 24/7 during the weeks around your due date and then, as you go into labor, I will be there with you from the time you call me until after 2 hours after the birth of your baby.

Of course, I can provide prenatal consultations only, if you do not need my presence at birth itself. We can discuss all the topics mentioned above. These consultations will be paid individually.

Client testimonials

The moment I met Anna, I knew she would be my doula. She is very knowledgeable and the kind of person that brightens the room. She was very supportive from the beginning, she answered all my questions and provided different sources of information. She is very professional. She respected all my birth wishes and advocated for me at the hospital. Her presence and support during labor was invaluable and I will always be thankful for that. I don't know what I would have done without her. I highly recommend her.

I chose you because I'm a foreigner, giving birth in another country, then I would need a support to understand how the labor works in Czech Republic and you could speak with everyone in the hospital in Czech and translate it.

I was not sure if I could be able to withstand such pain and the doula proved I was such a brave mother. When I thought I could not handle that pain, she encouraged me, helping me fulfil specific desires I might had for birth. She provided emotional and physical support in labour. I had a positive and safe birth.

What was the return of doula care? Being safe with my baby.

You are very kindly, sweet, you were available all the time, you always answered my calls and messages.

What, was the most helpful part of doula support and why? It helped to talk things through prior to the birth so that I felt better prepared mentally and emotionally for what could happen. Also, it was wonderful to have someone strongly advocate my wishes during the birth.

Why did you choose me as your doula? I appreciate the enthusiasm you have for your work as a doula and that you are up to date with the latest research. Also, your English is excellent!

What part of doula care was most valuable to you? Having a kind, warm person who was "on my side" helped me feel calmer whilst in hospital. Also by helping me to make decisions as the birth progressed I felt more in control of the situation, and it is great that you are not afraid to ask the hospital staff the difficult questions.

What would you say was your biggest fear or worry about birth that led you to hire a doula? I was concerned that I would be too stressed to handle the situation in the Czech language and that my requests would not be listened to.

If a best friend was considering a doula, what would you tell them? If someone was nervous about giving birth I would recommend a doula as someone who can help to make the experience a little less scary. A doula can help you feel more informed beforehand and more in control during the birth. I would certainly recommend you as a doula who has real respect for her clients and fully supports their wishes. I was very grateful that I had considered my options prior to the birth with the help of the doula. And because my birth experience did not go as planned I was grateful to have talked things through beforehand and then have someone anticipate my requests or speak out for me during the birth. 


Who is a doula?

A doula is a trained professional who provides emotional, physical, and informational support to a woman during her pregnancy, the birth of her child, and just after the birth. 

Doulas do not perform clinical tasks, like fetal heart tone assessment or cervical examinations.Mothers who are supported by a doula during pregnancy and birth tend to have lower rates of medical interventions during their labors, including assisted deliveries and cesarean births. They also tend to feel more bonded with their newborns, and their babies tend to breastfeed longer and more exclusively.
