About me

I am a mother of three and I have delivered twice in  Finland and ones in Colorado, USA.  I am Master of Engineering and Licentiate in Engineering and I have been working as a researcher prior becoming a doula. In the States I got interested in different ways to give birth and how much we can influence the event. As a DONA International certified Birth Doula, DONA trained postpartum doula and CAPPA trained Childbirth Educator I offer you knowledge what it is to deliver a baby in another country and to help you to find your strengths and the way you want to deliver your baby.

I have served customers from the USA, Australia, Africa and from Russia. It is my pleasure to help you in your journey to becoming the mother of this child.
