About douLA valentina
Valentina Constenla Kasat
Certified Birth Doula
I was born in Santiago de Chile in 1986, in a family that would become big and full of potent female characters. I went to study Business Engineering and, a few years after my graduation and shy short of 30 years old I decided to pursue a nomad life. Thanks to an inherited German nationality I have lived in Australia, New Zealand and The Netherlands.
During the covid-19 pandemic I was living in Amsterdam and, like many of us, started questioning what gave meaning to my life. It was in this context that I approached the profession of birth companion. Working as a doula makes me happy because I feel I can provide pregnant people with the reverence and attention that they rightfully deserve as portals of life on Earth.
To celebrate life, honor sorority and nourish the decision-making process that expecting parents face in the last months of pregnancy.
Parenting is a courageous task and pregnancy & childbirth are freaking epic accomplishments.
Every person that is pregnant is a fertility goddess who deserves the most high quality standard of care, attention, empathy, compassion and support.
What I bring into the birthroom
I am calm, irradiate trust and bring forth a celebration mood.
I am the sovereign of my own attitude and the only responsible for creating it and sharing it.
I am an expert in childbirth, medical environment and in my client's wishes.
I share this knowledge with who wants to receive this information.
I suggest, perform and teach physical comfort techniques aimed to soothe the birthing parent.
I will always ask consent to do these things.
THE DRIVE TO HELP YOU COMMUNICATE
I do my best to be a positive communicational bridge between you, your partner and your medical team.
I dare to ask questions.
