Sabah Naseer CD(DONA)

Certified Birth Doula and Hypnobirthing Practitioner

I'm a professionally trained and certified birth doula living in Dubai, UAE with my husband and two children. I was born and raised in Abu Dhabi and I have Pakistani and Yemeni roots. 

Years before becoming a mother, I worked as a freelance photographer. However, after giving birth to my son and daughter, I couldn't help but feel drawn towards pregnant women or those who wanted to share their birth stories with me.

I began my journey as a birth professional in 2018 when I trained as a doula with DONA International and once I finished my training, I knew I had found my calling. I have since supported couples during labour, birth as well as in the days after and to put it simply, it has been a truly humbling experience. 

In 2020, I decided to further enhance my skill-set and train as a hypnobirthing instructor. Hypnobirthing has been scientifically proven to improve birth outcomes and I have certainly seen the difference in the mindset of those who take the course with regards to their outlook on their impending births.

My Philosophy

Empowered Birthing DXB is exactly what the name says. Giving birth, while feeling empowered. I'm a firm believer in the power of seeking knowledge and nothing is more important than the preparation for birth and the early days of parenthood.

Childbirth is one of the most significant moments in a person's life, however it can also be one that is attached to anxiety and fear. My philosophy is to educate and empower women before they give birth so rather than walking into a birthing room with fear, they walk in with confidence and the knowledge and tools they need.

Apart from knowing what happens during labour, it is also important for couples to know what their options and rights are in the birthing room. Empowered Birthing DXB is a strong advocate for making informed decisions for a positive birthing experience which has a long lasting impact on your journey into parenthood.

There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to giving birth or your choices as a new parent, the most important decision is the one that you make with all the knowledge you have with you.
