a Birth that you can
Welcome to my doula services website in Bangkok, where I provide personalized care and support to pregnant individuals and families throughout their journey towards childbirth and beyond.

My name is Anfisa, For over 10 years I have worked as a yoga therapist including in pre-and postnatal groups. In 2014 one of my yoga students who was expecting a second child asked me to help her during her labor. I was 23 years old and I knew nothing about the birth process. She surprised me by asking that. She said: “I feel calm next to you, and you know all the poses and breathing techniques, you will be a good support”.
I did not agree right away. I thought about it and in the end decided to help, since she asked several times. I started preparing as a birth companion, though I was worried about my role.
During the preparation I felt so inspired, It was like the birth worker profession started to call me.
My philosophy and approach to doula services
As a doula, I offer compassionate, non-judgmental support to expectant mothers and their families before, during, and after childbirth. My goal is to help mothers have a positive and empowering birth experience, no matter what type of birth they choose.
Childbirth education classes offer you and your partner a deeper understanding of childbirth: physiology, stages of labor and delivery, possible medical interventions, specifics of local care providers, immediate postpartum, how to care for a newborn, important milestone during the first weeks after delivery, breastfeeding and postpartum recovery for a mother.
HypnoBirthing aims to help a woman deal with fears or anxiety she may have around birth topics. It involves various relaxation and self-hypnosis techniques to relax the body before and during labor. When the body and mind are in a completely relaxed state, the process of birth becomes easier.. Read More
A doula is a trained professional who provides emotional, physical and informational support to new and expectant parents before, during and after birth. A doula is a professional pregnancy companion whose goal is to help families have a safe, healthy and positive labor experience.
Here in Bangkok birth is medicalised. Doctors and nurses provide amazing medical support, but there is a gap for someone to be with you continuously during labor. Read More
You can give birth by yourself, but why not increase comfort and make this experience easier for you?

Childbirth is a long process, more challenging than any marathon, where a birthing person needs support. Doctors’ and medical professionals’ role is to check that there are no complications and the process is safe. There should be someone else near the laboring woman to give physical and emotional comfort. Usually, it is a doula, partner or family member.
Doula is a professional birth companion, familiar with all kinds of situations in births. If hiring a doula is not an option it is important to educate the partner or the family member to provide the best effective support during labor and delivery. That is why I created the course for partners. Read More
In this course we cover:
● Childbirth education classes
● Needs of the woman in labor

After having a baby, your body needs time to heal and rest — and so does your mind. Postpartum yoga, also referred to as postnatal yoga, can help with both. This form of yoga focuses on recovery and restoration and can alleviate stress and depression after giving birth.
Most of the time you hear that you can start practising yoga at least a few weeks after childbirth. Read More
From my experience the earlier you start the better you help your body to heal. I design a postpartum recovery program that starts with very gentle breathe thing, muscle activation and restorative asanas to close diastasis, tone the pelvic floor and get proper rest. I include yoga Nidra (link for description) in each postpartum yoga class to help women reduce sleep deprivation and give time to the nervous system to recover and relax.
What is included:
– Creating your personal yoga therapy practice
– Setting space for practice in the comfort of your home
– 45 min of exercises and 15 min of deep relaxation (Restorative yoga and Yoga Nidra)
You can choose a package of 6 or 12 classes
Closing The Birth
Birth is a big transformation, a rite of passage, and often an intense and overwhelming event. The body works hard towards bringing a new human onto Earth’s side. It is important to give the body special treatment for a proper recovery.
Traditionally in many cultures, women would always receive postpartum massages, steaming and heating body practices, special food and drinks for weeks after birth, and being in a special “confinement” – resting, staying away from drafts and cold.Read More At the end of all treatments, there is always a ritual to close the body physically and energetically, process and celebrate the woman and her experience. In Mexican tradition, it’s called “Closing the bones”, in Slavic culture – “Postnatal swaddling”, in Malaysia “Penutup Pantang”. These ceremonies help to realign the bones and muscles, guide the bones back into place, help the pelvic organs shift and the uterus to come back to its original size and place and stimulate blood flow. The closing birth ceremony takes around 4 hours, all this time you will be able to breastfeed and pay attention to your newborn. There is only last 20 min that we need to be one on one with the mother. What is included:
Psychologically closing the birth ceremony allows you to let go of negative emotions, and traumatic situations from birth, and helps to see your strength and higher purpose in the way your birth experience has unfolded.
Mentally, some women tend to come back again and again to their births – this is a sign that there is something for them to take out of that day, something to process and release. That is why it does not matter how long ago you gave birth to your child, if thinking about the birth gives you an unsettling feeling – it’s time to look back, receive gifts and close that story.
– Therapeutic talk and birth story processing
– Full body oil massage
– Belly massage
– Pelvic alignment
– Herbal bath (or foot bath in case there is no bathtub in your home)
– Rebozo massage
– Closing body ritual
– Flowers, oils, herbs and crystals for the ceremony

'Yu Fai' And Postpartum Recovery
Yu Fai is a Thai traditional postpartum treatment for healing, establishing milk supply and losing excess weight that is created by toxins and stagnated liquid after pregnancy. It’s also beneficial to have more energy and avoid postpartum depression.
Yu Fai means “To be by the fire”. This is a treatment where I use heat – steam, hot compress, hot drinks and baths. Traditionally in Yu Fai, I use fire, but in an urban setup, I use steam and hot compress that provide similar effects. Read More You have the option to choose a short, regular or extended Yu Fai program of 7, 14 or 21 days. What is included:
– Herbs for tea
– Essential oils
– Hot compress
– Full body massages
– Belly massages
– Rebozo relaxation
– Baths or foot baths
– Nutrition program
– Help with breastfeeding
You have the option to choose a short, regular or extended Yu Fai program of 7, 14 or 21 days.
What is included:
Placenta is an organ that sustains the baby in the uterus through the exchange of vital nutrients and oxygen. Placenta encapsulation is the process when after the delivery placenta is dehydrated and proceeds into pill form, and these capsules are taken postpartum.
The placenta is rich in vitamins and nutrients including iron which is often low postpartum due to bleeding during birth. Read More
There is also a way to use the benefits of placenta nutrients externally by preparing tincture.
If you wish to encapsulate your placenta or make a tincture contact me before your delivery.
We believe Anfisa to be a great asset to achieve the kind of birth we aimed- calm, natural and non-medicated birth. Despite being in the middle of global pandemic and away from home and family, she made us feel supported and confident throughout pregnancy. Read More
During our prenatal meeting she helped us to educate ourselves on the whole process, focusing on the topics we were most interested on, and answering our questions in the moment. It wasn’t only her well established knowledge that made it for us, but her peaceful, close and comforting personality.
While the delivery, she was a great support, providing the ideal balance between help and space. When she arrived at our home, she created the perfect atmosphere to speed up contractions and started working in the background. She let my husband and I be the center of the experience, helping when having contractions in a subtle and respectful way. I found her pain relief massages during contractions to be invaluable.
We would highly recommend her services to anyone looking for Doula support in Bangkok.
Anfisa, our lovely doula. So grateful for you that you were involved in giving birth of our child. And made us feel real and always next to us during the whole process of birth ❤️ it’s a happiness that we found you! From the moment of preparation for birth, meditations, learning the process to the help of breastfeeding and any others questions that we had available 24/7. It was such a great Help!! Read More
With you there was never a scary moment. When we were preparing for giving birth. Everyday I was listening meditation and even if I didn’t listen it during labour, I still used all the skills and it made the whole process easier. I knew everything happening to me during labour and I was never in any doubt during the labour state- because you were always next to us.
It was very helpful all the positions that we chose. And of course your massages helped during the contractions which made the strong pains a lot less.
Your care and support during the whole labour was super. We are forever grateful. You have given confidence to me and my husband that everything was going right. And we never had any doubts.
Now as we think about this day, we couldn’t imagine how we would be without you.
Now you are a part of our family and if we ever have one more baby, we would only hope to have it with you again ❤️❤️❤️
