Certified Labor and Birth Doula, Certified Postpartum Doula
Hi, my name is Andrea . The love and joy that I got to experience very early in my life and then throughout my pregnancies and childbirths are what made me pursue my passion as a Doula. As a mother of five children, I can offer significant knowledge about pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum care. As a Doula, it is important for me to focus on the whole: the birth, being a birth companion, supporting before, during, and after labor.
I have been a Doula for over 20 years and have worked as a certified Senior Doula in Europe and Hawaii. I had opportunity to not only receive training through school but also had the chance to shadow and work alongside many midwifes in Europe, Mexico and Hawaii. Through experiencing different cultures and all the individual rituals of birth and welcoming a child into the world I would make the perfect fit to guide your needs. Experiencing women in their most potent and vulnerable state while giving birth is truly one of the most amazing things I have witnessed.
I am very honored to guide and support couples through their journey of pregnancy and its beautiful shapes. To be beside you and receive the gift of guiding you through a life-changing time is a true blessing and the main reason for me working as a Doula.
I am originally from Germany and lived on Maui for a few years. I currently live with most of my family on Oahu.
