Welcome to my page and thank you for your interest in knowing more! I strongly believe that pregnancy and birth is a transformative journey in which YOU should be at the centre. I offer to accompany you in your journey: you will be celebrated, held, listened to and nurtured however you are and whatever your birth wishes are. I am a Moroccan-German full spectrum doula who believes in birth as a transformation and a rite of passage. I focus on your well being and on your emotional preparation to your transition into parenting. I offer presence and care, emotional support and can explore with you possible inter-generational healing. I am also interested in the power of prenatal bonding for the baby’s future health and development and for the birthing process; I would offer you to explore this with various techniques. To prepare physically for your birth, in addition to explaining the physiology of birth, I use body work and massage and will show you (and your partner) techniques you can use, inspired by the spinning babies ©, fascia therapy, MAP for better birth ©. I had the privilege to accompany births in Kenya in 2012 and have since then accompanied home births and hospital ones in Germany; I have supported several families in the post-natal period since 2019. I am a member of the Radiant Mama organisation, the Post Natal Support Network, and am the co-founder of the Transition Town Mother Roots project. I have two amazing teenage girls, one born in Morocco and the other in Luxembourg. I would love to hear from you! please contact me for a non-binding first chat. With love and care, Johara
