I was born in Russia and have been living in Geneva since 2013. I am a mom of 22-years old daughter. And my way to the Doula started at that moment 22 years ago. I was the first mom among my friends and acted as a prenatal & postpartum Doula for them. I did not know at that period the name of what I was doing.
Then it was long way to the Doula profession through education and practicing as a Perinatal Psychologist and a Gestalt Therapist.
Several years ago, I found out that what I was doing like a hobby has a name - Doula! So, to start my practice I completed in 2016-2017 Professional Doula program of Institute of Perinatal Support (member of European Doula Network) and continue my practice and development in this immense ocean of Birth.
I completed also a 2 years program in Birthing From Within (BFW) approach and became a Certified Childbirth Educator BFW to support parents in their preparation to Labyrinth of Birth.
