Nurturing, supporting and caring for you and your baby before the birth and afterwards.
Hello and welcome to my birth doula website! My name is Liana van Zyl and I am a professionally trained childbirth assistant based in Barcelona. As a birth professional, I am dedicated to supporting women and families to reconnect with their inner strength and intuition during the childbearing year in various ways.
Whether it’s a birth partner, postnatal doula, hypnobirthing workshop, placenta remedy or a Closing The Bones postnatal massage you’re looking for, rest assured you’ve come to the right place. Pregnancy and birth is a sacred time to be cherished and protected.
I passionately believe that birth is a normal physiological process. Labor and birth is one that is powered by the innate human capacity of the woman and baby. When the mother is supported in the right way, this unfolds in its own time and in its own unique way. Let’s take the first step on your birth journey together.
As your birth doula, we will discuss your concerns and preferences about childbirth. I enable you to make informed birth choices with a balance of intuition and research-based information. During your pregnancy and throughout the birth I am there to provide emotional, physical and practical support.
I focus my teaching on how your thoughts affect your body during pregnancy and labour. By including practical hypnobirthing and mindfulness techniques as well as an enhanced understanding of the psychology of birth, I help you feel fully prepared for your baby’s birth.
I offer a range of post birth remedies for postnatal health including placenta encapsulation, tincture, essence, balms and creams. Research and experience suggests that post birth remedies may help mother and baby during the early weeks after birth and beyond.
This involves a bodywork technique, ranging from massage to binding with a cloth, to assist you in regaining your strength and energy. The massage, in particular, stimulates blood flow which then cleans, renews, moves fluids and hormones, stimulates the immune system, and helps tone muscles and tissues.
