Happy Hugs

Hi, I’m Joanna, mother of 3 wonderful children, an English speaking specialist companion based in Paris.
Doula – Hypnobirthing Counsellor – Lactation Consultant – Babywearing Educator & Retailer

The area I cover

I am based in the western suburbs of Paris, France and I am offering in person birth and postnatal Doula services in Paris (75), Yvelines (78) and Hauts-de-Seine (92). I am also offering my services virtually, time zone permitted. 

Getting in touch

Please pop me an email in the first instance, so we can arrange a convenient time for an initial phone chat. We can then schedule a face-to-face meeting or a Zoom / FaceTime call,  for you to explore how a doula might best support you and your family, for me to address any questions you might have and for us to learn a little more about one another. Chemistry is an extremely important part of the doula-client relationship, so this initial meeting is an ideal opportunity to see whether we might be a good fit.  

More about me

Growing, birthing and nurturing a little human is one of the most magical times in your life as a mother, as well as an unprecedented event in your lives as a family. Women / couples need to be supported and nurtured, so their babies can be welcomed into this world with love and respect. 

The ability to birth is already inside you! We all have a deep connection to the millions of women who have given birth before us. Birth can be powerful, healing, a wonderfully ordinary way to begin motherhood and your baby’s life in this world. 

As your Doula, I will serve as a guardian and protect your birth space, making sure that your journey through the transition of birth and motherhood is a smooth, positive and nurtured experience. 

If the above struck a chord in you, if you share my belief that pregnancy and birth are not (usually) medical events, if you want to birth in power, instead of letting yourself led by the medical team, then I might be able to give you the information and emotional support you need to own your birth.
I know that in some situations, it is required and best to have medical assistance and intervention, and I am not at all underestimating the importance of the medical team when needed, but, on the other hand, the unnecessary over-medicalisation of birth can have a huge negative impact on both mother and baby.

I am based in the western suburbs of Paris, France and I am offering in person birth and postnatal Doula services in Paris (75), Yvelines (78) and Hauts-de-Seine (92).  I am also offering my services virtually, time zone permitted. 

I will be there for you to explore options and I vow to support you in your birth choices, whether that is midwife / doctor / no antenatal care, a home birth, a freebirth, hospital or birth centre birth, VBAC or HBAC, elective or unplanned c-section.
I will also help you understand and navigate through antenatal care and testing, as well as birth interventions, making sure you are fully aware of your birth rights and choices
