My name is Tamara De Zotti, I am an Italian mother of two children and certified doula.
I arrived in Norway 7 months pregnant and with a 1 year old child. At that time I did not speak Norwegian and only a little English. I confess that this was a very difficult time in my life.
Apart from my husband’s compassionate support, I had absolutely no one here and spent my days locked up at home, feeling lonely and afraid.
However, my daughter’s birth at Ullevål ABC, here in Oslo was a totally illuminating experience that made me realize how much I missed out on during my son’s birth.
You see, my son had been taken away just after birth to be washed, weighed and dressed, but my daughter was instantly placed against my breast.
The memory of the smell of my newborn daughter is something that I still remember after many years. It breaks my heart that I can’t say the same thing about my son.
Like me, many women have had their newborn child taken from them too quickly, which affects the future of their relationship with their child.
This has a tremendous ripple out effect as it impacts how that child functions in relationships as they grow into adulthood. Which affects how that adult functions in society – which affects how they treat their own children.
I understand how a fully conscious and informed birth can make a huge difference throughout the life of the child, the mother, the family, and humanity!
I emerged strengthened by my hard experience and became a Doula to give other women the opportunity to reclaim their power, know their options and rights, and support them in their choices, whatever they are.
I’ve been counseling women during pregnancy and after birth since 2008 and wrote a book on the sleep of babies, Dormire bene per crescere felici.
The book is only in Italian, but you can benefit from my successful “Sleep Well” workshops given in English, and Italian.
My doula work is so exceptional because I take a completely holistic approach that involves physical, emotional, energetic, and spiritual support. For this reason, you will find practices like reiki and womb healing among my many other certifications.
