When I was a little girl, I was able to witness the birth of my little sister at the age of 6. It is said that I was interested in every act of the gynaecologist and didn’t stand in the way. I always had a fascination for the medical world, and decided to study medicine. I unfortunately didn’t make the small selection pool three times. I ended up, after some ‘excursions’ in the biomedical field and a gap year, at the Verloskunde Academie Amsterdam (Midwifery Academy Amsterdam). This was my best choice ever. Factors such as, being it an independent medical profession, the intimate bond with the clients, the transition to parenthood counselling, the unexpected aspects of the field and entrepreneurship just gives me much fulfilment.
I’ve gained many years of experience in the field as an observer in various practices in the Amsterdam/Zaanstreek region. I feel comfortable at our practice with the many different cultures. It’s a place where I can practice many aspects of the profession and therefor have all the time for our clients and partners.
You will encounter me at the practice as point of contact, midwife, ultrasound scan professional, during the placement or removal of a intra uterine device (IUD) or at the cleaving of a baby’s tongue strap.
