about me

Hello! My name is Dagmar Metz and I live in Oberusel, close to Frankfurt a.M.

I was born 1964, am married and mother of two adult children. In 2012 I completed my doula training with Melanie Schöne and Debra Pascali (DONA) in Germany.

This training was my first step towards a completely different career after law school and working as a tax accountant. Since then I participated in many additional workshops and trainings in order to develop various skills and to be able to support my clients even better.

I accompany families in the Rhein-Main and Taunus area and have supported almost 50 births over the years. My daughter was born in 1996 in Frankfurt, my son in 1998 in New York City. Therefore I experienced two different ways of treating pregnant women giving birth. Over time I especially liked working with families from different cultures – and I was happy to meet people from different countries and cultures. I love the individual character, unpredictability and uniqueness of each child’s birth. It’s a matter truly dear to my heart to support each woman and her great inner strength to give birth and to have a perfect birth for each family. I offer my services in German and English.

My training and background

Meanwhile I completed trainings in psychotherapy (Heilpraktikerin) and also offer counselling in lactation/nursing, sleep and self-regulation of babies and toddlers. In addition to these trainings I was able to gain practical skills at the Vitos Tagesklinik for Mothers and Children and as a family consultant at the Frühe Hilfen Oberursel. The beginning of life is a wonderful and very important time with a big impact on the whole being. I hope that – through my work as a Doula – many people can have a positive birth experience that is a treasured memory and empowers them for the rest of their lives.

I am a positive person. I will take you and your issues very seriously, but sometimes a good laugh can also help to find a new perspective on problems and to reevaluate them with ease 🙂
HAPPINESS COMES IN WAVES – this is true for birth and your whole life!

I’m looking forward to hearing from you!

Choosing where and how you will give birth is one of the most important preparations you can make for a good breastfeeding experience.

If a woman doesn’t look like a goddess during labor, then someone isn’t treating her right.

Good beginnings make a positive difference in the world, so it is worth our while to provide the best possible care for mothers and babies throughout this extraordinarily influential part of life.
