Support during pregnancy, birth and postpartum
My name is Zuzana and I was born in Prague in 1978. I am married and I have 3 kids (1 boy and 2 girls). I offer prenatal and postnatal classes/meetings and support during labour and delivery. I support women during their pregnancies and labours in different Prague hospitals as well as in hospitals outside of Prague in Central Bohemia. I have supported more than 130 women/couples so far and I will be happy to support you as well.
I am happy to offer support to English speaking parents, I find it very interesting and enriching. I have experience with clients from many different European countries as well as the USA, Canada, Australia, Brasil, Israel, India and China.
I find that it is quite stressful for foreigners living here in the Czech Republic to understand the Czech health system and to manage the delivery in the hospital without any English/Czech speaking support. I am very open to helping expecting parents from different countries in this exciting and in the same time difficult situation, especially if they don´t know the Czech language and have no family support. It is a pleasure for me to learn about other cultures while getting to know people from all over the world. I love hearing the different mother tongues when the babies are born and the parents speak their language (which I often don´t understand) or when the happy parents are calling their relatives around the world.
I offer mental, physical and emotional support during the whole pregnancy, birth and the postpartum period. I also do breastfeeding consulting and answer questions regarding health insurance, social security and residence.

Zuzana is simply great! She was a tremendous help before, during, and after the birth of our child. Her ante-natal sessions were very helpful, and even more her visit at our home right after we came back from the hospital, and still had so many questions on how to care best for our first-born. We, both of us non-Czech speakers, recommend her without any hesitation. - Andreas and Martina
When I found out I was expecting a baby I was living in Prague with my husband. My plan was to give birth with a doula but I did not speak any Czech so I was seeking for and English speaking person and luckily found Zuzana. When we first met for a casual coffee she already made a great impression. With her perfect English and expertise I was 100% comfortable during prenatal classes as well as in the delivery room. Her calm presence and all the techniques she used when I was in labor helped me a lot to keep my calmness and to stay relaxed. I am really grateful to her for such a professional mental and psychological support that helped me to finally meet my first baby in a peaceful environment. Worth mentioning her reachability, responseness and prompt replies anytime when I had questions before the labor and postpartum. If I have a second baby and still we will be living in Prague I would definitely ask for Zuzana´s assistance - Virág
At first I wasn’t sure if I needed a doula, but it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Zuzana is someone you want by your side through and through. Her knowledge, reassurance and presence was such an integral part of my pregnancy and labour, and I wouldn’t have had such a positive and informed experience of my labour and delivery if it weren’t for her support. And it’s something I’ll carry with me (and share with my daughter and husband) for the rest of my life. She knows exactly what you need and need to hear, even when you don’t know it yourself. I can wholeheartedly recommend Zuzana. - S.
As it was my first birth I was terrified and knew very little what to expect. Sessions spent with you got me ready mentally, because you explained everything in easily digestible way. And your attendance during labour made a huge difference, helped me to control the pain and emotions. My husband is super grateful too. I loved cooperating with you, your service was absolutely flawless, thank you once again, I will keep in touch."- Keto
Once again, thank you ever so much for everything! We are truly blessed to have had your support throughout the preparation and the delivery. It all went a lot quicker than I thought (for good and for bad) and I am so glad I had you there by my side. You were a fantastic support."- Anke
