What is a Kangaroula?

A doula focuses on the mother’s needs during labour and birth. A Kangaroula does this also, but primarily advocates for the baby during labour, birth and the first 1000 minutes of life. The kangaroula has additional training in skin-to-skin contact (Kangaroo Mother Care), hence kangaroo + doula = kangaroula!    Mother’s body (and father’s) ensure that warmth, feeding, sleeping and emotional connection work as they should. The first day is when maximum support is needed for adapting to a bright and noisy world; it  is a critical period – looking after it makes a difference for life.

Every newborn needs a Kangaroula speaking for its needs, minimising stress and empowering mother to read his signals to meet his needs best. This is especially important for small or preterm babies, who often get even less mother contact and support for critical needs.

Why do a Kangaroula course?

Our “health routines” at birth support a new mother.

But what does the baby really need?
His Mother !
her body warmth,
her breastmilk,
her voice,
her love.

A kangaroula learns to support the mother’s and baby’s essential needs,
setting both up for good health over the lifespan. This is NURTURESCIENCE.

Why do a course?
To make a real difference!
