My name is D. and I am a French midwife who obtained a European Bachelor Degree in Midwifery in 2014.

I had the opportunity to deliver 200 babies in France, Belgium, New York and Morocco.

During some of the births I attended in other places, I felt uncomfortable seeing some laboring women give 100% of themselves and their bodies over to the medical side of things. As if there were no other ways to give birth and one had to rely solely on medicine. Back in 2014, I had an amazing experience when I went to a tiny isolated village in the heart Morocco to help nurses in a rural hospital.

I started to be really interested in alternative methods and wanted to find answers to the following questions:

  • How can I help a laboring mother become more autonomous?
    • How can birthing parents welcome their baby with serenity and in a very positive way?
    • How can we help birthing companions play a role in the birthing process?
    • How can I apply my convictions in my role as a doula?

I found part of the answers in HypnoBirthing ® and I decided to dedicate my final year dissertation to that subject and to become certified as a HypnoBirthing ® childbirth educator. That is when I really started loving my work and delivering babies according to my beliefs, in harmony with my convictions.

I would be glad to share moments with you future parents, helping you become more serene, calm and united before, during and after the birth of your child.
