Who will be there?
I'm Natalie, a doula, hypnoBirthing educator, lactation consultant, and mom of three—Alma, Julius, and Leda. Trained in London and the Netherlands, I believe birth extends beyond delivering a baby to encompass the birth of parents, families, and communities. As a doula, I aim to create a calm environment, fostering trust in the body's abilities. My role is to support expectant and new mothers in embracing their unique journey through pregnancy and motherhood. Clients describe me as passionate, adaptable, and focused, ensuring a memorable experience.
Elvira Broersma is a loyal warm down-to-earth spiritual woman with a mission. To increase awareness within as many people as possible, to inspire and motivate them to feel empowered, especially during pregnancy, birth and postpartum. In short, the first 1000 day of a child. Through a holistic, intuitive & body-oriented way of working, either as a birth or postpartum doula, holistic (lifestyle)coach, (baby)massage and/or cranio-sacral therapist. Even when things turn out differently than desired in life, such as a birth loss or abortion, Elvira is an (experienced) expert for healing.
Originally from Northern California, where redwoods meet the Pacific, I cherish my unique birth story in a remote community. Inspired by assisting my mother during her labor at 15, I discovered my passion for supporting and nourishing women. In 2020, becoming a mother to Flora reignited my dream of being a birthkeeper. After six years in education, I transitioned to become a birth doula, childbirth educator and prenatal nutritionist. Now in Amsterdam, as an expat, I offer support to those navigating the Dutch system on their motherhood journey. With a holistic approach, I believe in the strength and resilience of our bodies, constantly learning to provide diverse options for my clients.
As a doula since 2018, Lua's journey spans San Francisco to Amsterdam, guiding families on their unique paths to parenthood. Coming from Chile, she advocates for compassionate, evidence-based care for all parents. With a commitment to tailored support, Lua nurtures unwavering assistance—educational, emotional, and physical—ensuring a peaceful, empowered journey from pregnancy to labor. Balancing doula work with raising three children, she's also a Clinical Psychologist, specializing in perinatal and early childhood mental health. With 14 years of experience, Lua brings a wealth of knowledge as a Certified Lactation Counselor® and postpartum doula, currently based in Amsterdam.
I'm Camila Hollemans, a Brazilian living in Holland since 2011. My journey into supporting women in motherhood began after the birth of my first child. During my second pregnancy, I completed a Doula course and incorporated diverse body therapies into my practice. Placing women at the heart of the transformative journey from pregnancy to postpartum is my belief. Certified in breastfeeding consultancy and hypnobirthing, I consistently enhance my skills. Drawing from my personal experiences, I genuinely support new families on their distinct journeys.
