Sweet Violet Mama

Kasia Junak, CD(DONA)

Hello, I’m Kasia – Certified Birth Doula, Midwife, and Shantala Massage Instructor.

I live in San Diego with my husband and five years old son. My passion for childbirth and caring for people led me to become a Doula. I want to offer you my loving care, calm, natural approach, and ability to hold space during this wonderful transformative time.

It will be an honor to meet you on your journey to becoming a mother.

What is a Doula?

I am a Doula!

The Greek word doula means woman caregiver. I am a trained and experienced labor companion who provides you and your husband or partner continuous emotional, physical, and informational support during pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period.

As a birth doula I:

  • Nurture and protect your memory of your birth experience.
  • Assist you and your partner in preparing your birth plan.
  • Help you understand the physiology of birth and your emotional needs during each stage of labor.
  • Provide physical comfort measures (counter pressure, different positions, using birthing balls).
  • Stay by the side of you throughout the entire labor and few hours after childbirth.
  • Provide an objective viewpoint and assistance to you in getting the information you need to make the right decisions.
  • Facilitate communication between you, your partner, and medical care providers.

Many scientific trials show that doula care positively impacts the well-being of the entire family. A doula’s presence improves the physical and psychological outcomes of mothers and infants.
