Spinning Babies®parent educator, CD(DONA), certified BRM® pro

Transplanted from the Netherlands to New York over 20 years ago. I am a certified holistic birth doula with more than a decade of experience. I am also a home birth assistant, AHA CPR Instructor, Spinning Babies® parent educator, certified Body Ready Method® pro and GentleBirth instructor.

My strength as a birth doula is that I grew up in a world where labor and birth were considered normal, and pregnancy and birth were celebrated. I have worked with many different cultures. I also speak four languages. BRM® is an amazing tool to assist in creating deeper connections between your body and your brain and build confidence in your strength and intuition as parents.
