Holistic care after birth (Kraamzorg)

The first days after your baby is born, is a very special time of transition from being pregnant into starting parenthood. Aside of all the emotional and practical changes that come with receiving your new baby. This is a time when there are also many physical changes that make the transition from pregnancy to parenthood. 

 I consider the first weeks with your baby very important time to bond and get to know your newborn.
My vision is to support you to care for your baby the way that feels right for you. My services are adapted to
support you, to do things your way and discover what works best for you and your baby.

I also bring with me extensive experience and knowledge with; babies, breastfeeding, and natural ways to restore and balance our bodies, mind, and soul.

This is a list of things I can offer to you:
  • Emotional and fiscal support
  • Skillful listening 
  • Supporting you to listen and follow your instinct and intuition.
  • Making healthy nutritious food and knowledge on how to use food to support healing in the body
  • Natural methods to enhance healing of tear or episiotomy
  • Coaching in how to finding a balanced family life
  • How to understand the language of your baby
  • How to take care, bathe, clean your baby
  • Short massage session
  • Breastfeeding support.
  • Show you how you can live diaper free with your baby or part-time diapering or using cloth diapers.
  • Babywearing ( however most of the time this week is too full to have a full babywearing session. The best is to have a class while you are still pregnant or 2 weeks after you give birth)
  • Light household

If you would like more information, see availability and possibilities to work together please call me (if you get my voicemail please send me an SMS with your name, due date, where you live and when I can call you back).
In Holland, you get 49 hours of care paid by your insurance. For this service, there are extra travel expenses.
