Private Midwifery Care and Education in Tampere


Planning your pregnancy, growing a child beneath your heart, giving birth and caring for your new baby is the most significant yet demanding experience in your life as a woman. It is not at all uncommon to have doubts and fears when in transition to become a mother, whether it is your first time or you have seen it all before.

Choosing where to have your maternity care is one of the most important and personal decisions you’ll make during your pregnancy. You want an environment that is supportive with professional knowledge. You want a nurturing setting and the peace of mind that your provider is on your side. You want to feel cared for and confident as you begin a new life with your little one.

Professional support and care for fertility, pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Vauvantai offers home birth midwifery, doula services, guidance in reproductive/fertility health, antenatal education and breastfeeding advice in TAMPERE and HÄMEENLINNA region. International customers can be helped via Skype and email. My office is located in the city centre, and you will get directions via email when you book the appointment.
