Mindful Birthing and parenting courses
I believe that the birthing mum knows the best what’s good for her and her baby. My role is to support her needs and wishes. It may also involve doing a piece of work together that enables the birthing mum to find her own way of giving birth or taking care of the newly born baby. It gives me joy to work with couples. There’s nothing more beautiful than a partner who’s willing to do some preparatory work in order to support his or her beloved the way she needs.
Both expecting and new parents often have many questions, doubts and most importantly feelings that may need to be expressed. In those important moments I’d give you my full attention and create a safe space for what ‘wants’ to be heard. And I’ll help you to find your own answers. All of that with empathy and respect.
I love learning new things and I’m a great believer of self-development. No wonder that I continue to expand my knowledge as a doula with passion. All the workshops, courses, trainings I attended, plus my own life experience, have given me a wide range of effective tools. What it means for you, is that I’ll tail my support around your needs with you leading the way. Some clients concentrate on the practical information and support, others want to include the emotional or spiritual aspect of parenting. In other words, I’ll be there for you.
If you feel that our journey together might be worthwhile or simply if you have some questions, please feel free to contact me via my email: email@example.com or by phone 07944064969.
‘It was absolutely wonderful to have Kasia at my birth, she seemed to know just the right things to say and just her presence was so reassuring and comforting. She made me feel like I was doing a great job, her words were very empowering and so positive. My husband also really appreciated her support. After the birth she gave me the most relaxing and nurturing massage. Kasia is perfectly suited for the role of a doula, her whole heart and soul is in it. ‘
‘Kasia was my birth and postnatal doula and she helped me over several months. I originally selected her because I felt that she was an exceptional listener, who saw me as an individual and would be prepared to adapt her approach according to my needs and beliefs. My birth experience was not straightforward, but I found her to be a level headed, calm presence, who tried to ensure that my voice was heard by the medical team and that my birth plan was respected where possible. She helped me to access the information necessary to make informed decisions. In the early days she was instrumental in helping me to get breastfeeding properly established. She was always available when I needed her. She is flexible and also manages expectations effectively. She is very discreet. She has a gentle, kind manner and is sensitive to the needs of others, including other family members. She is also very good with babies! I would not hesitate to recommend her.’
“I could not have asked for a better doula. Kasia’s energy and love helped us have an amazing experience.
The sessions pre-birth were excellent and provide us with the right balance of information and empowerment. One of the things I liked the most about Kasia is that she would not tell you what to do but help you discover it yourself, making it your own experience 🙂
My birth was long and Kasia was with us all the time (hospital, home and back to hospital), she definitely went the extra mile. We had a full lotus birth – which would have been quite tricky would Kasia not had been there with us. Not only she helped providing us with a lot of information based on her experience but also ensure it all went smoothly on the day. I highly recommend her!”
