About me

I offer overnight support for families with newborns. Besides supporting parents in the care for their newborn I also love to ‘mother the mother’ as she needs to rest and recover in the fourth trimester. I offer practical support, such as help with (breast)feeding, making sure mom stays hydrated and rested, clean bottles and pump parts, help with baby laundry etc. I also provide evidence based information on newborn care as well as emotional support to process all the changes and offer parents encouragement where needed. I’m your biggest cheerleader to become confident in your parenting skills and style!

Service introduction

I’m a postpartum doula and love supporting new parents in their parenting journey! A supported family is more likely to thrive and I believe we are not meant to do this alone! To have a upport in the fourth trimester gives parents time to rest, bond and recover. And it has really been my joy to offer that to families in the form of overnight support.
