Doulas in Croatia has existed for over ten years and there have been around 100 doulas trained in that period (DONA, Paramana). In 2013 after the first DONA International Training a small group of doulas decided to make a registar of educated doulas in Croatia and that become Croatian Doula Association.
Now we focus our work on the raising awareness in our local communities about importance of how we give birth.
In September 2015 we started a program “Human rights in Childbirth” and so far we informed and empowered 130 women through our free workshop.
Our association organises a DONA International doula training every spring in Zagreb with Reka Dezsi as our trainer with interesting workshops and events like “Meet your local doula” or “My birth, My story” for pregnant couples and mothers.
We strongly believe that activism is a vital part of a society and an association we focus on empowering women through our programs. But in the delivery rooms our doulas support and bring calm and peaceful atmosphere for the mothers.
