Why feeling

Why the name Feelin(g)?

eucalyptus

FEELING is the nominalization of the verb to feel. The word was first used to describe the physical sensation of touch through experience or perception.

The word is also used to describe experiences of sentience, the capacity to feel, perceive, or experience subjectively.

In psychology, it is used for the conscious subjective experience of emotion.

Feelings are also known as a state of consciousness, such as that resulting from emotions, sentiments or desires.

It is not only FEELING, but also FEEL IN.

FEEL IN your body and mind as a physical or emotional experience or awareness. Connecting with your inner & deeper self. Feel in what is true to you. It is also the awareness of the way you should be treated.

This is what I want to live by, as a Doula, as a Yoga Teacher but also just in my personal life every day. This is also what I want to offer to my clients and parents-to-be.

And why the eucalyptus leaves?

GREEEEEN is my way of living. I wanted to share my eco-warrior spirit through my logo. I work hard at reducing my consumption and my waste and try to make better choices for our health and our planet and apply that in my work too, in every possible way.

The symbolism and proprieties of Eucalyptus are protective, purifying and healing. The name is derived from the Greek and means “well covered”, referring to the protective membrane that covers the budding flowers of the tree. It is also a beautiful symbol of Australia’s unique wildlife and ecosystem, keeping in mind to stay tuned with its wisdom.

she knew exactly when to get involved and when to leave us to it

Amelie’s presence was totally invaluable. I don’t think my labour would have been so successful if she wasn’t there. She knew exactly when to get involved and when to leave us to it […] She was the one person who stayed with us throughout the entire labour while midwifes changed shifts.
