Embrace the joy of birth

with expert Munich birth doula support for international families.

Wondering how to confidently give birth while living abroad in Germany?

As someone who has moved to another country, you understand that big life transitions come with challenges. Becoming a parent is another voyage, and though it takes you down an unfamiliar path, it’s not all about the destination.  You can gracefully move into parenthood, enjoying the process, when the focus is shifted to being more present and attuned to the journey with the support of your Munich birth doula.


I’m Darby (she/her), Munich Birth Doula

Certified with Childbirth International and the German Gesellschaft für Geburtsvorbereitung

I love supporting international families, just like you, as you welcome your baby into the world. As an American who gave birth in Munich three times, I know firsthand the challenges of having a baby in a foreign culture. Although birth is full of surprises, I have faith in your ability to overcome any linguistic, cultural, and systemic obstacles and birth just as you are.

Since I started as a Munich birth doula in 2016, I have supported dozens of births and hundreds more parents in my classes and circles. I strive to eliminate barriers present in German maternal healthcare, forging better connections between birthers, families, and care providers. Read more about me here.
