“Verina was there for me before, during and after the wonderful homebirth of my son Johan. Being a doula myself, people were surprised that I would have a doula at my own birth but I had no doubt in my mind that I wanted a doula and that Verina was the doula for me. Verina is a very nurturing, caring and genuine person and a great source of information.
Verina helped create a calm and relaxing environment, she gave me encouragement when I needed it and often, it was her words that I focused on to help me relax and let go. We had a lot of laughs and a lot of love.
My husband also loved having Verina at the birth and said that she was a non-intrusive, calming presence. He said he loved seeing the connection I had with another woman supporting me and that it allowed him to fully focus on being present for me. There were lots of compliments from the midwives too.
The birth was only one part of the story, being able to talk to Verina before and after and to debrief and chat about the birth was wonderful. Knowing that I always had support on hand if needed really helped me enjoy the lead up to my birth and the early days of being a mother of two. I want to say a massive thank you for being my doula”
