Hello! I am Floriane but i like to be called « FLO » in english, I’m birth companion or « doula » since 2007. Mother of 3 teenagers (13-15-17 years old) based in Nice but willing to travel any where 😊.
Initially in the tourism sector, after my personal experience of maternity , I decided to orient myself to « the childbirth world ». It thus became a real passion and even a vocation!
I have had the privilege of supporting over 400 families and the honour of seeing over 180 babies beeing born.
Making sure that each woman who crosses my path discovers the options available for her, that she can make her own choices with full knowledge of the options and without any regrets . I support (NON-MEDICALLY) and inform, single women or couples, and their relatives. I do NOT work as a midwife, but we work together. I make sure that all women know the full range of midwifery skills and invite them to choose one. I agree to confidentiality and submit to professional secrecy.
Support during pregnancy
Since each pregnancy is different, so is each support… There is no ideal date to start … My suppoort begins when the expectant mother feels the need (the day after the pregnancy test like the day before childbirth …).
meetings at your home (or elsewhere) of 1h30 (the frequency according to your need and desire)
sharing around pregnancy (as well as for administrative procedures if necessary), your desires, your fears, your couple
active listening and information
anticipation and organization of postpartum (the period after birth)
doing your birth plan
equipment loan: books, CD, DVD, balloons, nursing pillow, scarves …
Support of your birth
possibility of 24/7 availability from the 8th completed month (physically, by phone, email …)
according to your choice, presence at your side during your labor AND with the agreement of the medical team
also support home births with the presence of a midwife or doctor ONLY
help and support for breastfeeding (if it is your choice)
Support after childbirth : visits at your home (by phone or video possible too)
help, advice and tips for organizing your new life
« debriefing » of childbirth (we will talk about the details of the birth)
various postpartum activities and care (massage, rebozo care, bellybinding, babywearing classes, yoni steam or vaginal sauna)
Each of these phases of support can be done with the other parent as well, of course. The doula does not replace the partner at any time, it’s even the opposite!
