DEUX BARRES ROSES believes that pregnancy is an incredibly special time, especially so if your journey to become pregnant has been long and difficult. We know first hand that you do not always feel understood and that you may often have contradictory thoughts. We are here to support you and help you to communicate your feelings, as well as to answer any questions you may have. Deux Barres Roses regularly helps young mums, especially upon their return home, which is not always an easy time. When the desire to have a baby has been a true battle, and that finally you attain your dream, it can sometimes be difficult to feel totally happy and at peace with the choices made during the much anticipated pregnancy. Deux Barres Roses can help you to communicate your needs, your expectations, your doubts, your fears, so that this magical moment happens as peacefully and serenely as possible. Please do make an appointment so that we can discuss this together.
A Doula can help you and your partner before, during and after the birth. She will provide emotional support during this big life event that is the arrival of your baby. Depending on the type of birth that you wish for, your Doula will be able to advise and support you, as well as during the first months of your baby’s life. A Doula works closely with Doctor’s, Midwives, as well as other therapists so as to best assist you.
What can a Doula help you with when you give birth? Studies have shown that being accompanied by a doula can:
- Reduce the length of contractions
- Epidural rate is reduced
- Reduced use of painkillers/analgesics
- Reduction in c-sections
- Less instrumentalized birth (forceps, spatula’s, suction cups)
- The newborn baby is more alert and takes to the breast easily
- The couple is empowered and works as a team
- Dad’s are more confident in their relationship with their baby
A Doula can accompany mums and couples:
if the partner will not attend the birth or if their presence is not wanted by the mum
- If the partner would like additional support
- If the partner is not attending the birth or their presence is not wanted by the mum
- The mum to be is single
- If a mum was not supported enough during the birth of the 1st child
- Planned c-section and the mum does not want to be alone after the birth, when the partner and the midwife take the baby to the nursery
- The mum is from another country or culture and she wishes to have a mediator
- 1st time mum or if the woman has many questions and is anxious
- 1st birth was traumatic
- A handicapped baby is expected
- There is a risk that the baby will only survive a few hours or will be still-born
- The mum wishes to be supported by women during her birth, but her mother, friend(s) or sister(s) are too close to her to assist the birth
A Doula offers a non-therapeutic and non-medical accompaniment. Being followed by a Doula in no case replaces obligatory medical check-ups given by your Midwife, Gynecologist or Doctor who is following your pregnancy, birth or postnatal period.
We have global and partial packages. Your Doula will always work with a ‘back-up’ Doula who you will also meet, so that in case of any unforeseen emergencies you will always have someone who is at your side. Usually, a global package consists of 5-7 appointments in pre- and post-natal, as well as being present at the birth.
Deux Barres Roses is also a member of the association ‘ Doula Genève’ and ‘Naitre ensemble’:
