CONGRATULATIONS!

I am so glad you found me! As a certified Birth & Postpartum Doula I am passionate, dedicated and committed to your care. However you choose to birth, I will be right by your side, every step of the way

  

Welcome and thank you for your interest in my services. Congratulations 'again' on your growing family. It looks like you're already making great decisions by considering hiring additional support system!

As you get ready for all the excitement and life changing events ahead of you, I would be honoured to be your source of support! I am not a Doula who can guarantee you a positive birth. I promise you a birth you will look back on with fond memories though as it will be a birth i will help you prepare for. I serve Leiden, Oegstgeest, Katwijk, Den Haag, Amsterdam, Delft, Haarlem and surroundings. I have coached and supported in Uterecht too!

My experience includes both hospital and home births. I support your choice of birth, be it at hospital, home, birthing centre, with pain relief and without.

I create a package for every couple individually. I am currently accepting clients for both Birth & Postpartum Support for the month of June 2018, July and Mid August onwards. If you would like a customized package to your own needs please make contact by email: upendodoula@gmail.com or Whatsapp: 0651329889. Everything is possible.

Is a Doula right for you?

The benefits of continuous labor support are clear. Even with a dedicated birth partner, labor, birth and the early moments of motherhood can be especially long and exhausting for both mother and the partner, and having another skilled team member can be essential. Doulas help to instill confidence to the birthing mother and her partner, as well as to educate, support and encourage you to achieve the birth for you

You want to know you can afford to pay for support in advance.

Sure! I understand. I offer payment plans and sliding scale packages too. Please dont allow the inability to afford a Doula be the reason you don't hire one. There are options, always make contact we can arrange something.

'part' of my Doula Packages and Birth Preparation Sessions may be reimbursed through your insurance. Please check directly with your insurer that they would cover these costs and how much. The reimbursement amount depends on your chosen package.

How come my packages might be covered?

Not all Doula's meet the conditions for reimbursement. To get reimbursed even for your Doula support;

* the Doula has to be a certifed and recognized Doula through the Dutch Proffesional Association for Doulas - NBvD.

* The doula has to be registered with the Chamber of Commerce - KVK

* the doula has to be vetted through the 'care providers system' and granted a AGB code - which is a providers code

So when you book me, your invoice will have my AGB code and my kvk number to send to your insurer for your 'part' reimbursement! I am not only certified, I made sure to cover all the requirements listed above :-)
