Hi! I’m Damaris. I’m originally from Germany and love exploring new places, cultures and food. I am an outdoor person and love everything from relaxing at the beach to hiking up the mountains. Currently, you can find me running around Sydney as I am training for my first marathon.
I am a qualified birth and postpartum doula, certified through the Australian Doula Academy and Newborn Mothers. I am also a member of the Australian Doula Network. Back in Germany, I studied and worked as a midwife and have over 10 years of experience in educating, encouraging and supporting new mum’s on their journey into motherhood.
I see an overwhelming need for mothers to continue to receive the encouragement, care and support postpartum. Every mum needs and deserves to be mothered over this period; to be nurtured in a non-judgemental way so that the best mum within her will be available for her new baby.
I provide in-home postpartum care that is personalised to you and your needs. This could include sitting down with you and listening, cooking you a nourishing meal, giving you a massage, supporting you with (breast)feeding, settling or swaddling your baby or doing your laundry or dishes – whatever it is that helps you feel calm and relaxed.
I offer face-to-face sessions in your home, in Sydney (Inner West, Eastern Suburbs, North Shore).
