Marie Nicolas - Doula
Accompanying mothers-to-be and new mothers throughout their maternal experience to soothe their transition into motherhood.
Marie Nicolas - Prenatal, Birth & Postpartum Doula
Every woman deserves a doula!
While the birth of your baby is a deeply intense moment in your life as a woman and for your couple, it can also be an overwhelming time as you find your way and make so many important decisions. Epidural ? Breastfeeding? Co-sleeping?... So many options for which I can provide clear and precise information. I will lead you to make informed decisions, help you build your own birth and postpartum plans to feel confident and empowered.
My role as your doula is to inform, support, and accompany you during your pregnancy, labor, birth and postpartum. I will work with you to choose consciously what best suits you and your baby.
Whatever your choices are throughout your journey into motherhood I support you and your partner, so that your experience is a powerful and positive one, and reflects what you need and want for you, your baby, and your family.
Let me help you have the best experience possible.
Whatever your choices are, I am devoted to supporting you.
