About De KraamSpecialist

"The world of obstetrics and postpartum period is entirely my passion and my specialty. I have spent several years at Amsterdam’s St. Lucas Andreas Hospital working with new mothers and babies in their maternity unit. For the last five years, I have also been making the regular postpartum home visits for a midwifery practice in Amsterdam. I also offer counseling and courses for preparing for birth and parenthood and, since 2013, I have been a licensed lactation consultant by the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners (IBLCE) in the Netherlands. On top of this, I’m a proud mother of three children.

During my daily home visits to our clients I have been through many different situations in terms of maternity care cases. I observed situations that delighted me, but I also encountered numerous aspects of care that I felt could be greatly improved. This is why I have started my own maternity agency. In my model of care, I combine professionalism with solid experience to provide the best care for you, your baby and your whole family. At De KraamSpecialist, mother and baby both have a central role: we work hard to provide a high level of maternity care. We take the time to learn about your experiences, desires, challenges, concerns, and joys. We answer your questions and reassure you about the models and protocols of maternity care. We care deeply about each of our clients and enjoy getting to know every family we are honored to serve"
