Hi there, I’m Danielle

The birth of your baby is approaching fast and you've started to think of what happens after. You want to have a relaxed and connected postpartum experience but you're not sure where to begin. How to plan for it? How to ask for help?

I'm glad you're here! Let me tell you more...

You are an expat family living in Amsterdam, you don't have your family nearby, and you are worrying about feeling lonely with a new baby. You also want a restful, nourishing, slow postpartum but aren't sure how to plan or create it. You prioritize connection with your child and want to explore yourself deeper.

You believe that birth is a transformational rite of passage that changes you from maiden to mother. You know that you are as vulnerable as your newborn baby and that you need love and attention in postpartum.

I will teach you how to be a master delegators and create a support network that allows rest and recovery. I will help you to foster a strong connection to your baby, feeling attuned, responsive, and loving. You will transition into parenthood with awareness and compassion.

I will teach you how to use mindfulness to ground yourself in the present moment when parenting becomes overwhelming.

I will make sure you will feel validated as you get to know your new self as a mother as well as your baby. I will help you emerge feeling confident, informed, resourced, grounded, calm, and connected.

How will I support your transformation?

Hear what other mothers have to say

"Danielle is the person I go to when I need to share, ask advice or sometimes just vent about my motherhood struggles. I feel safe and not judged talking to her. She has a voice that calms me almost instantly, and I wish I had met her earlier in life."
"Danielle helped my partner and I get more clear and aligned on our expectations. It also helped us discover our blind spots.
Danielle also facilitated time for us to slow down and connect when we felt that we were rushing towards the birth."
In the early days after birth, I didn't remember that I existed much. I was so focused on my daughter and I felt like an extension of her. With Danielle I got to take a deep breath and also look at myself which was very helpful.
Danielle took initiative in cooking, massaging me, giving me options, talking to me, allowing silence to exist sometimes when I needed it and bringing me in some way to reality. I have a very clear feeling of being relieved whenever I need her.
