Calm Waves - Birth doula service

Amstelveen, Netherlands

Photos & Videos


Hello, I'm Miranda and I'm originally from the UK. I have two lovely little children, and live in Amstelveen.

I can support you through your pregnancy and birth journey as a birth doula.

Becoming a parent is a life-changing experience. It's a journey that will change us forever. I will help guide you through your journey, ensuring that you're heard, feel safe and supported during every step of the way.

I have 5 sisters and know, from their experiences, my mums experiences, and my own, that you will always remember your pregnancy, birth and postpartum journey.

I have been a childbirth educator since 2012 (HypnoBirthing), since I gave birth to my son, Forest in the UK. My husband, Nik, and I, had a very positive C-section birth journey. We then gave birth to our daughter, Daisy, in 2015 in Singapore. It was the most amazing and empowering experience I've ever had.

I have supported 100's of families through their pregnancy, birth and postpartum journey, in the UK, Singapore and now here in the Netherlands, and I would love to support you. Please have a look through the different doula packages I offer, and see if one suits you and your wishes.

How can I support you:

- Birth doula: supporting you through pregnancy & birth emotionally, physically, spiritually and with information. I will ensure that you're listened to, that you feel supported and safe. I will work with your partner and care provider so you have the best team around you.

- Postnatal doula: supporting you through your postpartum period, emotionally, physically and practically. You can enjoy my support any time after the first few weeks, months, even years! I can offer a listening ear, a shoulder, a hand to hold. I can massage, cook, hold your baby while you shower and have a moment to yourself. We would plan your postpartum together, so my support is totally individually focussed for YOU

- HypnoBirthing: A full childbirth education course - I've been teaching this for 9 years and it's amazing! I teach the original Mongan Method, with added information about Spinning Babies, massage and more! I offer group and private courses & refresher courses!

- Pregnancy & Postnatal massage: Let me pamper you and massage aways aches and pains. I can come to your home, or you can enjoy a relaxing massage in my massage studio in Amstelveen. I've been a massage therapist for 13 years

- Baby massage: once your baby is 4 weeks old, come and join my baby massage classes! A great way to bond with your baby, connect with other parents, and learn some wonderful techniques to soothe and relax your baby, helping tummy troubles, colic, encouraging flexibility and development

Have a read through my profile and my website. Do reach out if you fancy a chat, or need more information. I'm here to help!

Thanks for reading and I can't wait to meet you!

With love, Miranda

Every woman remembers their baby's birth. My own lovely 82 year old mum remembers all of her 5 births, in great detail. She can clearly remember what happened, who was there, and how she was made to feel.

By having a Doula, you increase the chance of making your baby's birth a positive one. An experience you can look back on and feel good about. Giving birth can be one of the most powerful and defining experiences of a woman's life.

Birth is such an incredible time for mum, baby and birth partner. A time when you're faced with many decisions, options and questions. This is a time when you need as much support as you can get.

You might choose to birth in a hospital, at home, or in a birth centre, or in hospital....wherever you choose to birth, having continuous emotional, physical, practical and informational support, helps you to feel empowered, supported, and safe. You might want a natural unmedicated birth, an epidural, a c-section. My job, as a doula, is to create and maintain a warm, safe, non-judgmental space for you. I will support you, whatever your wishes and decisions, making sure you're always listened to and treated with respect and love. You, the powerful birthing Goddess!

Choose between my 3 doula packages that can include a HypnoBirthing course, pregnancy & postpartum massage, postnatal doula services, or just stand alone birth doula support:

If you would like to meet with me, and see if we have a nice connection, then contact me and we can arrange to get together over a cuppa (in person or via Zoom), free of charge and with no obligation!


With love, Miranda

" Miranda was a phenomenal presence for us during our birth. She was an additional layer of gentle, caring support, adding different positions/techniques/calming words that truly helped me through the whole process. It also helped me to know that my husband had someone else there supporting me."- Shelley (Amsterdam)


Free introductory meeting - 1h
