Birth support and birth preparation

Continuous birth doula support and private birth preparation sessions in Amsterdam

Continuous labour and birth support

Whether it is happening at home, in a hospital or birthing centre, the most important thing a woman needs during labour and birth is feeling safe and supported. With 9 years of experience in supporting families in all possible birth scenarios in home and out of home birth settings, birth where baby was born in a pool, births that started a little bit early or with an induction, planned and emergency Caesarean births, I am offering various birth support packages to choose from.

Informing and inspiring you to make empowering choices!
