Hello everyone! I’m Lisa, mother to my two beautiful daughters and a full spectrum doula. I’m 29 years old and live on the beautiful island of Ibiza, where I grew up most of my childhood. I am fluent in 5 languages, which are Dutch, Italian, Spanish, English and Catalan.
My journey as a doula started after my daughter’s birth. I had a pretty traumatic birthing experience, and a very lonely postpartum. It motivated me to start researching every aspect about pregnancy, birth and postpartum, and soon enough I found myself enrolling in a doula course. I am very grateful to have met many amazing doula’s since then, whom have thought me so much, and all the families whom I have had the privilege to support in the last years.
I specialized in antenatal and postpartum care, as well as getting official certification as a hypnobirthing therapist and lactation counselor (CLC). My main focus has been pregnancy doula sessions, where I discuss with the mother and partner the reality about pregnancy, birth and postpartum, and all the emotional aspects that this entails. I feel very fortunate to have met so many mothers who are so committed to learn about their bodies and to feel empowered towards labor and birth. Taking control and not giving their power in hands of medicalized institutions. They are a total inspiration for me. Their partner’s devotion has also astonished me these years, supporting the mother’s decisions and being the birth guardians.
I myself am giving birth this year (2023) and taking a small maternity break until at least next year. I will be active for emergencies and lactation counseling’s until July. Don’t hesitate to contact me at any time.
Lots of love to all the new families, Lisa Doula.
