Virtueller Doula Service – Geht das Überhaupt?

Was sind die Schwierigkeiten für eine Doula in Zeiten von Corona?

Für Doulas ist es derzeit schwierig, unsere Kundinnen so zu betreuen, wie es notwendig ist. Zum einen darf nur eine Begleitperson mit in den Kreissaal, d.h. die Mutter muss sich entscheiden, ob sie Partner/In oder Doula mitnehmen möchte. Zum anderen gibt es natürlich Ansteckungsgefahr, wenn die Doula Hausbesuche macht oder in die Klinik geht zu einer Geburt. Gerade bei der Arbeit mit Neugeborenen ist es eigentlich derzeit nicht möglich, Kunden zu sehen.

Wir zeigen euch hier wie man auch in New York verpackungsfrei Einkaufen kann!

Keep your Kids healthy – naturally (Part I)

Every child will soon or later have a cold or tummy ache. Most of these episodes are not all that serious but they can make you and your child feel miserable enough to look for help. In Germany many pediatricians are interested in avoiding pharmaceutical drugs, such as antibiotics, when a young patient visits. In the US it is more difficult to find doctors who are knowledgeable about naturopathic treatments.

The most common health concerns in young children are usually respiratory infections and digestive troubles. Children’s immune systems are being formed in the first months of life, and so kids are more susceptible to infections. Also, their little bodies are learning to assimilate foods that are new to them. That’s not always easy and often leads to tummy aches or digestive troubles.
