Reliable | Spontaneous | Practical | Creative | Friends & Family
I’ve grown up in a small town in North-Holland next to a farm where my father worked small time. As a young girl, I experienced many births of small lambs and little calves which inspired me about the cycle of birth and life. Becoming a midwife, was a logical choice for me. I attended the Verloskunde Academie Amsterdam (Midwifery Academy Amsterdam) together with Ismay.
I lived during my study in Amsterdam and worked after graduation at several practices in Amsterdam-West and Amsterdam-North. It fascinates me how everyone experience pregnancy in their own way. The small scale and personal care we offer at our practice, enables me to always have a close eye to the needs of our clients.
In 2019 and 2021, I experienced by myself the period of pregnancy, giving birth and postnatal period. I became mother of my son Guus (november 2019) and daughter Saar (march 2022).
You will encounter me at the practice as point of contact, midwife, ultrasound scan professional or during the placement or removal of a intra uterine device (IUD).
