My name is Daisi, I am a mother, postpartum doula / postpartum care specialist and lactation consultant.
I’ve been always fascinated by the tremendous power that women have. However, I had no idea, what kind of emotional and physical endurance it takes to take care for a newborn 24/7. I hadn't noticed how everyone's attention turns to the baby, once the baby is born and how lonely can a newborn mum be in this situation. I didn’t know how vitally important it’s to support mothers by providing them practical help as well as warmth and care. Although I can say that my children opened for me the gates to the secret garden of boundless love, I must also admit that my birth as a mother has been the hardest lesson of my life. Becoming a mother showed me how much a woman can really carry if she is supported and what happens if she doesn’t have support group around her,
I’ve been certified as a doula and a lactation consultant at the Põlistarkuste ja Rahvaravi kool; completed the Postpartum Education and Care Professional training recognized by the Australian College of Midwives and I value lifelong learning.

Want to know more about me? You are welcome (sorry, this podcast is in Estonian):
I want every woman to feel supported. Feminine wisdom and self-confidence can best manifest when a woman is supported and feels safe. The birth of a baby is a wonderful and unique event that results not only in the birth of a baby, but also in the birth of a mother, a father and a new family. A beautiful birth experience and the first months outside the womb, i.e. the fourth trimester, are the basis for a healthy child, a healthy child is the basis for a healthy society.
Dear mother, you are on this journey just several times. You need and deserve as much support and care as your baby. Value this wonderful time, value yourself!
