How do we work – countries coordinators

The essence of our work is to think globally and act locally on building a postnatal community. We are a platform of connecting the family’s search for helpers and a helper looking for a place to serve. Therefore we encourage to set up local networks in towns and villages which possess the knowledge of how to mother the mother. Please let us or your national coordinator know if you are interested in setting up a local network.

There are currently national coordinators active in some countries in Europe.

Mónica Santos

Coordinator for Portugal

Ever since she was a child, Art has surrounded her life: Music, Yoga and Ayurveda, arts and crafts. When her first boy chose her to be his mother, she discovered a new path: to serve and support new mothers and their families, especially during the postpartum period. Through active listening, her hands and warmth, gifts of foods and herbs, she holds space for the mothers to be.

Mother, Doula, Lactation
Consultant, Body and Systemic Therapist, Red Tents, Women’s Circles facilitator, Obsidian Yoni Egg Guide. Gratitude was the energy that I felt after had been supported in my second motherhood. So, I want to be involved and do my best to make other women to experience what it is like to be fully supported and nourished after childbirth.

Elsa Martineau

Elsa Martineau

Coordinator for France

Based in Montpellier, my roots are from the north of France. 
I started my journey into motherhood in 2012, giving birth to my son and to the woman I am today. It was a tremendous shock and the lack of support brought me into the interest to inform, support, share knowledge.  
I became a full spectrum yoga doula early 2018 and started my role as coordinator at the end of that same year. Passionate into bringing the new paradigm of Mothering the mother into normal, I am full of gratitude to serve.

better experiences during pregnancy, delivery and post-natal period. Her

Sofiya Henrietta Angelina Bonde

Coordinator for Denmark

www.sofiyahenrietta.com

Kundalini yoga teacher for pregnancy and post-partum, doula,
anthropologist, mother and bonus mother. As my own mother passed away
only two weeks before I found out I was pregnant, I have experienced on
first hand the importance of having care and support during pregnancy,
labour and post-partum. As a doula, my ultimate purpose is to provide
care and support for the woman and her partner in this transformational
time and guide her towards her own inner power and knowledge.

Magalie Beantpal Kaur

Coordinator for Switzerland

I am Swiss, living in a small village near Geneva. I am the mother of a 3-year old boy and the wife of a Colombian man. I spend most of my energy for our family and now I am opening more space for teaching Kundalini Yoga, offering Doula services, teaching women about menstrual cycles and being involved in PSN as a coordinator. Being part of PSN makes sense to me and fills my soul. I hope the Swiss network will grow as flowers with lots of colours!

Patsy Gormley-Steele / Sat Prakash Kaur

Coordinator for UK

Sat Prakash (Patsy Gormley-Steele) is the third eldest of nine siblings  and growing up in London was a family effort with grandparents living next door who played an important role in raising the younger family members. This naturally continued on into her own adulthood as she continued to support sisters in raising their children including household jobs like cooking and cleaning. After training as a Kundalini
Yoga teacher in 2008, she was blessed to train with Satya Kaur on ‘The Mothers Journey’ and was invited to join the Post Natal Support Network in supporting women during their first 40-day journey as a mother. She is a mother to a 10-year-old son and continues to enjoy supporting women in the Steiner School Community as well as home school parents and friends living in Norfolk.
