pregnancy and birth support

You've probably also been told that birthing is inevitably painful, difficult, hard, and long. Disempowering birth experiences have unfortunately become 'the norm' due to often unnecessary medical interventions, lack of trust in the female body and the autonomy of women in labor being taken away.

But what if birthing could be smooth, calm, and even pleasurable?

Dear mom-to-be, the fact that you are reading this now means there’s a good chance that you want your baby’s birth to be very different from 'the norm' and are therefore looking for alternatives. When you’re pregnant, your first and main concern is the well-being of your baby and bringing your baby safely into the world. As much as this is your priority, it takes much more than just thinking it. It requires good preparation. And that is precisely why I developed the POSITIVE BIRTH EXPERIENCE PROGRAM. A program based on what you want.

Birthing is a skill, and you CAN influence your birth experience.

You are not a passive passenger on this unique transformational journey. You are in control in more ways than you realize!With the POSITIVE BIRTH EXPERIENCE PROGRAM, I’m keen to help you take control into your own hands, by proactively anticipate your baby’s birthday. de geboortedag van jullie kindje tegemoet te gaan.

So, you can leave all (unsolicited) opinions and (inappropriate) advice from people around you for what it is. And you no longer must waste your time and peace of mind searching for answers on the internet. With the POSITIVE BIRTH EXPERIENCE PROGRAM, I take you with me into the birth world, to the essence. And you proactively get started with the MOMBOSS PLAN. Because being proactive is key and thé best way to prepare yourself for the perhaps unknown and the birthday. What you will learn and do with MOMBOSS will help you express your birth wishes.

Imagine yourself smiling, laughing, and enjoying childbirth. And how you put your baby on your chest for the first time, in supreme joy, in your full power. You were made for this!

Change the way you view birth into a powerful and positive birth experience. Take the first step now; get in touch with me.

HypnoBirthing®

HypnoBirthing® the Mongan Method, is a wonderful pregnancy course and the most complete there is. The proven methods of HypnoBirthing prepares the parent-to-be physically, mentally and spiritually for childbirth. And, as a woman, brings you back to your ability to birth your baby in a safe, natural, calm and extraordinarily beautiful way. HypnoBirthing assumes that your body knows how to give birth, it is in your DNA. Thus that is always the focus.

HypnoBirthing is a course for both parents. Actually very logical; the baby is yours together and you are both important for the beginning of his/her life. You are a strong team if you both have the same knowledge about this. You also practice all the techniques together. Thanks to HypnoBirthing you gain insight into the practical, physical and mental side of the birth process. All knowledge is aimed at trusting your smart body and your mental strength. That it would be 'new-agey' has long been outdated. Nothing is as down to earth as the actual functioning of your brain and body.

Hypno stands for hypnosis. What we do with this during the course has nothing to do with the show hypnosis you know from TV. Hypnosis, also known as self-hypnosis, means deep relaxation. Relaxed and focused. This is the ideal state during labor: your body works optimally and your brain is calm. Then there are the simple but effective HypnoBirthing breathing exercises that will support your body throughout the birth process, with what it is actually doing. All techniques you will be taught, 

have a proven positive effect on the course of birth process and on how you experience it. So through HypnoBirthing I teach you to make your confidence in childbirth bigger than fearful thoughts. Because the whole experience of having a baby is grander than any pain. It is super special, moving and empowering! Whether you want to birth at home or in the hospital, HypnoBirthing is equally suitable. It gives you the confidence that you can do it at home and that you can relax in a hospital setting. 

Practical

    • The HypnoBirthing® course is taught in a format of five lessons of 2.5 hours each and you need time and practice to make the techniques a second nature.
    • You follow the course together with your partner or birth partner.
    • You are willing to practice the techniques together at home. The principle of HypnoBirthing is that you will condition your subconscious. It takes practice and a lot of repetition.
    • You can choose to do the course in group or individually (private).
    • You start between 15 and 25 weeks of pregnancy, depending on your need to practice longer.
    • If you are already later in your pregnancy and you still really want to follow the. HypnoBirthing® course, contact me regardless. We will figure it out together.

Contribute

Through this platform I would like to make an appeal to you to contribute. Poverty has many faces. Alleviating the problem of poverty therefore requires a comprehensive approach on various aspects. In Belgium too there are many socially vulnerable mothers and pregnant women who have almost nowhere to turn to for help.

It is my belief that by making a woman/mother resilient, giving her more insight and increasing her self-confidence, she will stand stronger in her motherhood. Here we can make a difference together.

You can make a donation (once or on a regular basis) and contribute to give pregnant women in the weakest social position, access to qualitative prenatal care. All donations will be merged. And thanks to these donations you make it possible for me to support pregnant moms in need during their pregnancy and the birth of their babies.

In my turn, I will save 5% of each complete 'doula support trajectory' for which I am hired. Once a year I will donate the integral saved amount to an organization or charity that works for women and children.

I'm counting on you. Because together we do better.

Do you wish to donate? Please contact me via the contact form. The necessary information will be provided.
