 Birth and Postpartum Doula, Overnight Care

Anique, wife and a mother to three children ages 10, 5, and 2 and a homeschooling mom. She was born in Holland and  had their first 2 children there. "In Holland, most of the births are home births unless you have a medical reason, then you have to give birth in a hospital. Even pain relief during birth is kept to a minimum or none. I noticed that in the USA you are mostly on your own in the journey to starting a new family.

At that moment I felt the need to make a difference in birth experiences and postpartum in every way I can."
