The way a woman gives birth has a major influence on the health of her baby on the short and long term, the relationship with her partner and her own mental and physical health, her self-confidence and self-esteem as a woman and a mother."

& Postpartum Doula
Experience & qualifications
Confidence and trust
As your Doula I would like to give you the best possible birth experience. Thanks to my professional background and emphatic, caring and warm personality, I can be the guide you need during this life-changing journey. I have a genuine interest in people, I support and encourage. What drives me as a Doula is to give you the confidence to rely on your own power during and after labor. You can do it!
Since I have lived in different countries I easily bond with a variety of people from different backgrounds.
My background as a nurse and my years of hospital experience make me a real professional.
Besides English and Dutch I speak a little bit German & French
A good start with your baby
The period around pregnancy, delivery, and the period after that is unforgettable. It is a life-changing event that feels like an emotional and physical roller coaster. Being able to look back on a positive labor experience and the period following the birth, makes all the difference. This helps you to make a great start with your baby.
