Doula Nora

Welcome to get to know me better 

I am Nora, a 32-year-old mother of two beautiful little girls and a wife to my beloved husband from Veikkola. I am a health nurse, doula, blogger, and have my own healthcare bussiness. Currently, I work full-time at Pikkujätti doctorclinic in Tapiola, where my own business reception is also located. 

How did I become a Doula?

My passion for working in the healthcare field started over 15 years ago when I worked with the elderly. However, my career path has evolved and deepened over the years, as I searched for the right path to follow.

Seven years ago, I found meaningful work for myself in maternity and child health clinics. I fell in love with this work. Working with families felt very natural and has always been close to my heart.

After the birth of my second child, I started thinking about the direction I wanted to take in my career. Upon reflection, I realized that I wanted to further specialize in working with expectant families, birthing individuals, and newborns. Breastfeeding guidance and development are also close to my heart. So, I decided to become a Doula and started my own business when my eldest child was about to turn one year old.

Me as a doula

As a Doula, I aim to create a positive experience for families during pregnancy and childbirth, with gentleness and safety as guiding principles. Through breastfeeding guidance, I strive to bring well-being and ease to the early days of newborn care. Working with families is a great source of strength for me, and I cannot imagine doing a job where I do not get to work closely with clients and express myself fully.

As a Doula, I am gentle, approachable, meticulous, reliable, and present. Drawing from my extensive work history and personal experiences, I provide guidance and support, walking alongside you on your journey. It is a joy to do this work with love and within my own business. I am committed to continuous education and expanding my services to better serve families in diverse ways. My passion in the near future is to advance and develop breastfeeding guidance. Every expectant parent deserves adequate breastfeeding support during pregnancy.

I will walk alongside you towards the miracle of childbirth and supports you during the postpartum period.

As a doula, I am versatile, caring, and constantly learning. I am passionate about supporting expectant families, birthing individuals, and newborns. My expertise lies in working with families during pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period, with a special emphasis on breastfeeding support and education. I have had the privilege of working with diverse families from different cultures, and I am grateful for the trust they have placed in me. 

My journey as a doula has been fulfilling and rewarding, and I am committed to continuing my education and growth in this field. Thank you to all my past, current, and future clients for allowing me to be a part of your birth experiences. 

As a doula, I am here to provide emotional, physical, and informational support, and to be a trusted companion on the path to parenthood. I am dedicated to creating a safe, nurturing, and empowering environment for families as they embark on this incredible journey. 

My passion for this work shines through in the care and support I provide to families, and I am grateful for the opportunity to serve as their doula. Together, we will work collaboratively to create a positive and empowering birth experience that aligns with their desires and wishes. I am committed to being present, listening attentively, and offering nonjudgmental support to families as they navigate the joys and challenges of pregnancy, birth, and early parenthood. I am honored to serve as a doula and to play a role in helping families create positive and meaningful birth experiences. 

I am privileged to work with families during this special time in their lives and to provide them with compassionate and personalized care. I am proud to be a doula and to play a role in helping families create positive and empowering birth experiences. I am committed to continuing my education and growth as a doula, and to providing families with the best possible care and support. My passion for this work is unwavering, and I am grateful for the opportunity to serve families during this incredible journey. I am honored to be a part of their birth experience.

My values

I love the simple family life, tranquility, nature, and spending time together with my children and spouse. I am determined, passionate, sensitive, gentle, and moved by the beauty of both small and big things in life. I adore art, flowers, photography, traveling, delicious food, chocolate, massages, cozy autumn evenings by candlelight, and beautiful summer mornings & sunsets. I might be a romantic. <|endoftext|>

Health and well-being are important to me. Coping with the demands of everyday life and the busy years of raising young children can be challenging for many families. The current COVID-19 situation, remote work, and balancing family life can be particularly challenging. I fully understand this. The pressures of juggling two jobs and caring for young children can be overwhelming. It's important to remember to take care of oneself as well, as without good health, nothing else matters.

Respect for fairness, human dignity, and acceptance of diversity are also strong values in my worldview. Every person should be able to be exactly who they are without being belittled or discriminated against.

My own pregnancies and childbirths have been unique, as well as my experiences with breastfeeding. I have also experienced miscarriages, so I genuinely understand the sorrow and concern that come with a new pregnancy after such a loss. Pregnancy and its progression are not always a given. I am incredibly grateful to have healthy children.
