Are you looking for a doula in Barcelona?
Claudia García Díaz is an English-speaking doula who can help you with pregnancy/ prenatal support, giving birth in Barcelona, and postpartum support including breastfeeding.
Claudia has a nursing degree, but tells MumAbroad that as she’s there to ‘just give information’ and provide ’emotional and physical’ support for whatever the family requires.
Doulas are trained but not healthcare professionals, and do not do any clinical tasks. The doula’s goal is to help parents – especially first-time parents – feel safe and comfortable throughout pregnancy and childbirth, and complement the role of nurses, midwives and obstetricians.
Claudia García Díaz is unique because she has a professional nursing background and a humanitarian background.
Claudia is one of few doulas in Barcelona who speak both English and Spanish so can accompany clients to appointments and to hospital.
Claudia tells MumAbroad that home births account for less than 1% of all births in Spain. Home births are not financed by public health care are not typically encouraged.
Spain differs to countries like the Netherlands where home births account for 16% of all births.
Claudia’s website has a series of packages, which can be tailored to suit your needs.
The packages cover pregnancy, labour and birth, and postpartum support – you can choose to receive support for one of the three stages above, or through all three.
