Who am I?
My name is Marina. After graduating from Veterinary University in Croatia, I joined my husband in Switzerland. Soon after, we started growing our family and had our two wonderful daughters in 2017. and 2019.
The pregnancies and births of my children changed me and challenged me to grow in ways I didn’t think it was possible. Ever since my first birth, I felt drawn to support other women and families in their parenthood journeys. I would be honoured to be your doula.
What is a doula?
A doula is a non-medical professional who accompanies parents during pregnancy, birth and postpartum. She is there to support the parents-to-be, to make sure they feel strong and safe during the birth of their child, and to make sure that they have a good experience bringing their baby into this world.
Benefits of a doula have been proven by various research over the years. Some of them are:
- Decreased rate of C section
- Decreased rate of pain medication administration
- Shorter labour
- Less interventions like forceps or vacuum assisted delivery
- Decreased risk of being dissatisfied with the birth
- Better mother - baby bonding
