Hello, I’m Fanta, a birth and postnatal doula supporting women, couples and parents in and around south Yvelines, Versailles and Paris through pregnancy, childbirth and with their new baby at home.
Sometimes, I am booked antenatally, sometimes only when a family find they are struggling or feel the need for more support. The length of time I spend with a family varies enormously from its needs !
I also provide a wide array of other services such as infant massage, babywearing, blessing way…. Please note that they are separated from my doula services package.
I will travel to most local hospitals and birth centres in south Yvelines (Versailles, Rambouillet) in Puteaux, Nanterre and Paris.
I am member of Doula de France : I have completed a preparation course that means I have learned how to best offer the practical and emotional support you need.
I am a mother of three, my last daughter having been born in 2013. I breasfeeded all my children.
I became a doula to offer calm and gentle support to women and to her partner during their births as well as to make sure they were well informed so the choices they make are right for them. I am non-judgemental and empowering, an advocate where needed and always sensitive to the needs of the partner and family.
I am well aware of how emotions can overflow at times of stress, and the importance of a calm and understanding presence.
I do not take a clinical role and work alongside midwives and doctors. I do not advise, but can support a woman, a couple to find balanced information to make informed decisions about maternity care.
Unlike a maternity nurse, I am not there to take care of the baby for you. I provide emotional, practical and informational support. Instead, I support you to be the parent you want to be.
Helping women to find a piece of familiarity and confidence in their delivery even when they are not at home, is my top priority.
It’s important that you feel confident and comfortable with your Doula, and a consultation is the best way to ensure that. Contact me today to book one ! Together we can discuss your worries, concerns and needs during this life changing time to find the best medical and emotional support you deserve.
For more information about my services and fees call me on 07.67.55.95.38 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I will always be happy to encourage, guided by your wishes and offer support !
