Welcome to Southeast Doula Care
Supporting You - Whatever Your Way
Hi and welcome to my page!
I'm Annika, a Birth and Postpartum Doula living in the Sunny Southeast. My passion is to assist families during pregnancy, birth and in the first months of the new baby’s life so you can enjoy this magical time with confidence and peace of mind. I help you to figure out what your options are and support you in your decisions.
Your pregnancy and birth experiences are something you will always remember, for as long as you live, and a healthy baby is NOT all that counts. You count, your birth matters. Let’s make sure it’s a great memory! A positive birth experience starts the very moment you find out you are pregnant: How you feel about your care, how you are spoken to, whether you are supported both physically and mentally, if you were given all the options and your choices respected, it all plays a role in how you feel about your pregnancy, birth and postnatal time. By having a trained professional by your side that you can trust, you can reduce the stress, overwhelm and anxiety that can come with the new territory of pregnancy!
So, let’s chat and get you on the way to an amazing pregnancy, birth and postpartum experience! I’d love to hear from you.
What is a Doula and how can Doula Support help you?
A Doula (from the Greek word for woman servant or caregiver), is a non-medical, specifically trained professional who offers families continuous, non-judgemental emotional, physical and educational one-on-one support during pregnancy, all throughout birth and beyond.
Labour/Birth Doula: Be it your first or your fifth baby, a Labour or Birth Doula offers you and your partner advice and support during pregnancy, birth and immediately postpartum. A Doula brings to the table what the overloaded medical system cannot:
Reassurance, encouragement to find your voice and evidence based information
Providing a continuous presence
Helping you and your partner work through fears and self-doubt
Giving your partner a break during labour and birth or helping them understand what’s happening
Debrief after birth
Postpartum Doula: After the birth of your baby, a Postpartum Doula offers you and your growing family advice and support by providing practical care, including sibling care, to optimise the transition into your new every day life through:
Guiding Infant Care
Family Support and Sibling Care
Birth Support Workshop
Postpartum For Dads Workshop
