Matecznik Foundation was founded in 2016 as the result of a few years work of its founders with couples expecting a child and parents of small children.
The Foundation’s mission is to support families and women, especially in the perinatal period, in improving the quality of childbirth and parenthood.
The most important activities of Foundation are as follows:
- preparing women and their partners for the delivery by organizing birth school classes, meetings and workshops with various professionals,
- educating future parents about the perinatal period law in Poland ,
- organizing parenthood-related meetings and workshops :
- attachment parenting (meetings with psychologists),
- child’s diet,
- physical development of a child,
Fascinated by the childbrith and motherhood related topics, the founders gave up their professional careers and set up Matecznik with the main goal to support pregnant women and their partners.
Please meet us:
I am a certified doula, babywearing instructor, Breastfeeding Promoter and a member of the Doula Association in Poland. Having worked for five years as an audit associate, the pregnancy period and the very first months with my baby at home totally changed my job priorities and let me decide to get engaged in work with pregnant women. Since then I have completed many professional courses and worked with hundreds of parents, including classes, workshops and accompanying women and couples during childbirths.
For more information about me as a doula, please visit my website.
As a mother of two boys – Kuba and Piotr born at home, I am fascinated by attachment parenting
I am birth school, shantala massage and babywearing instructor. I have gained knowledge and skills for years participating in many trainings, courses and conferences organized by the senior professionals of the parenting related topis. I strongly believe that natural birth and attachment parenting are a solid foundation for achieving harmony in family life. As a sociology student I already intended to work for the local communities. In 2010 with a group of babywearing pioneers from Poznań I founded „Poznań in Wrap” Association. Not much later I set up the first natural birth school in Poznań, which promotes natural approach to pregnancy, birth and parenting.
Privately, I am a mother of three daughters with the youngest one born at home.
