ALL ABOUT ME
I usually work with women preparing for their pregnancy and birth. My goal is to support you in your choices whatever they may be. I wish for every woman to feel empowered, satisfied and happy.
I have 2 children with very different birth stories. It is because of the birth of my son, that I have become a doula and hypnobirthing practitioner. My son was born in Czech hospital in 2010 with interventions I did not consent to. My daughter was freebirthed in 2016 into mine and my partner's hands. Both stories are equally important to me and to my work. Both stories represent my journey.
I am an advocate for women in childbirth. I love to travel and lie on a grass. I love the sea and wind. I love to watch my children play and be happy. I am proud of myself for who I am and the woman I have become.
Hello Michaela, Lola was born yesterday. I wanted to thank you once again for the valuable information from your course. The birth took 7 hours and it was beautiful. We gave birth in a pool at home. The biggest experience I had was in the pool, during pushing, which surprised me as it didn't hurt at all. I had no tears, nothing. Have a nice day.
