Silvia is an amazing human being. She is really empathetic, in a few days it seemed we knew each other for ages. It is impressive how she can be so professional and so friendly at the same time. She has good energy always transmitting calm and balance. And she has a huge background with woman health what gives her knowledge and confidence to help a woman during puerperium. Cristiane Soster, May 2020
I met Silvia out of pure serendipity and loved her right away. She supported me throughout my pregnancy (it was my second pregnancy), making me feel reassured and helping me make informed decisions along the way, supporting me irrespectively of which choices I made. I was very anxious and afraid of how the birth might go and she helped me find strategies to deal with the anxiety. She also organised a lovely Mother Blessing with some of my friends and brought the womanly energy and power to my home, which remained until I had my lovely home birth. As an amazing bonus, she has a magical touch! She gave me a massage and I swear as soon as she touched me I felt instantly relaxed! She also supported me through post-partum and kept checking up on me, reminding me to rest and to take care of myself as well, which is so important. Couldn’t recommend her highly enough!

You definitely need a doula in your life to help and support you in your hardest job ever! Silvia is just the right person with the warmest personality and all the knowledge. Having Silvia as my Doula was very important to me.

Her presence helped me feel stronger, capable and secure during all my journey through pregnancy, birth and early motherhood. When I was in labour she stayed with me all the time, she gave me confidence in myself and helped me with every contraction with movements, massages and positions until my baby came to this world.
