What a magical time… A child is coming, a mother is born.
Pregnancy, birth and post partum experiences shape you as a mother and a woman. I am dedicated to support you and your family during this ‘rite de passage’. So women (and their partners) may heal, learn from, enjoy and cherish their Birth Journeys.
I work as a professional birth and post partum doula. As a volunteer I am the local coördinator for the Leiden Postnatal Support Netwerk. I organise and give trainings for the Postnatal Network and teach Kundalini Yoga, pregnancy and baby yoga. I have a PhD in History and taught at universities before I dared to follow my dream of supporting mothers full time.
I am blessed with two young children. After both births I dedicated 40 days to my healing and recovery proces. These rich and vulnerable times in my life have been so healing and special. They have given me a strength that I did not know I had. My vision is that all women will allow themselves to ask for help and enjoy these life experiences. Asking for support has made me a stronger and more loving woman, has created a ‘village’ of women around me and has made me even more dedicated to support others. May you find the courage to ask for support and may you be blessed with plenty of it!
