A doula is a birth worker. A skilled and experienced woman who guides moms-to-be/couples and prepares them emotionally, physically and mentally for childbirth. She offers reassurance and comfort. You can address her with all your questions and doubts.
She is involved in the entire pregnancy. And that is precisely why during childbirth her presence feels familiar and safe. Then her most important task is to ensure that everything goes as smoothly as possible and to assist the woman and partner in labor from beginning to end.
Hello and welcome to my website. I'm Anny Ongena, the woman behind Amma Doula; proud mother of a fine son and yaya completely smitten by his son. Versatile, that's how I can describe myself; my family and upbringing are mixed, my background is diverse, my interests are broad and deep, my skills are multiple and my insatiable curiosity is the guiding principle in my life. So I am many things in one. But professionally I am a Doula and Yoga teacher.
