Introduction

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

I'm a birth doula, HypnoBirthing childbirth educator, massage therapist and baby massage teacher.

I have supported 100's of families through their pregnancy, birth and postpartum journey, in the UK, Singapore and now here in the Netherlands.

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, safe, 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 became a HypnoBirthing childbirth educator after giving birth to my first baby, Forest, in the UK in 2012. We had a positive c-section, where the HypnoBirthing techniques and tools carried myself and my husband through a very long birth and the c-section. I then decided to teach this amazing course!

We then gave birth to our daughter, Daisy, in 2015 in Singapore, using HypnoBirthing. It was the most amazing, empowering experience! I was so comfortable and in control and my husband was an awesome support for me, we were a team. I want to do it again!

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.

- 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

Pregnancy massage ~Nurture Mum - 1h

Massage is a wonderful way to help you relax while pregnant. It gives you "me" time and is the perfect opportunity to let go and release any tension.

Pregnancy massage supports the body through the many changes during those 9 months. While you drift away on a lovely soft fluffy cloud of relaxation, I'll work on those aches and pains, helping you feel more comfortable, calm and relaxed.

Benefits of pregnancy massage are:

- Relieves back ache
- Helps to release tension in your shoulders/neck
- Can greatly reduce swelling in legs, hands & feet
- Improves circulation
- Relieves muscle cramps
- Helps relieve sciatica
- Helps release feel good hormones, oxytocin and endorphins
- Baby benefits from the relaxation and hormones released

You will be lying either in a side-lying position, semi-reclined or seated position, depending on which stage of pregnancy you're in, and the treatment required.

I use organic, cold-pressed oils so that there's no worry of strong smells (we know how much pregnancy can alter those senses!).

Packages:
.Nurture Mum - 60 minutes - €70
.Pamper Mum - 90 minutes - €85
.Indulge Mum - 120 minutes - €110

The treatments are totally tailor-made for you. You can decide which areas you would like me to work on, which areas you feel needs treating and comfort. For a full body massage, I suggest 90 minutes.

Contact me if you would like something different to what is offered above.

Treatments can take place either in the lovely relaxing treatment room in my home in Amstelveen, or in the comfort of your own home (I will travel to your home and massage you on your bed, with sheets, oils and towels). There is an additional charge of €30 for travel (more if you live 8km from my home. Contact me for a quote)

Your body goes through huge changes after your baby's birth. It can take a year or more for your body to get back to normal. With a newborn, it's so easy to forget to look after yourself, or find time to have a little "me" time.

Let me pamper you and help you to relax.

Don't worry if you can't find someone to look after your baby. You're very welcome to bring your baby along too. Your baby can snuggle up next to you on the massage table, you can even breastfeed whilst enjoying massage, or your baby can sleep nearby. We can work around your baby's feeding or sleep.

Or would you prefer me to come to your home and massage you on your own bed, with your baby snuggled up next to you? That's also possible!

Benefits of postnatal massage are:​

- Gives you relaxation time, nurturing you and your journey
- Relieves any aches and pains
- Helps to de-stress
- Eases shoulder tension from breastfeeding/carrying baby
- Relieves muscle cramps
- Helps release feel good hormones which can lift your mood
- Helps your tummy to recover
- Speeds healing and recovery time
- Improves breastfeeding
- Improves your sleep
- Breast massage (optional) helps relieve discomfort

The treatment can be carried out in a side-lying position, on your front, on your back, semi-reclined or seated (depends if you have any discomfort in your breasts)

Packages:

Nurture new mum - 60 minutes - €70

Pamper new mum - 90 minutes - €85

Indulge new mum - 120 minutes - €110


The treatments are totally tailor-made for you. You can decide which areas you would like me to work on, which areas you feel needs treating and comfort. For a full body massage, I suggest 90 minutes.

Congratulations on the birth of your bundle of loveliness!

Are you looking for a class to do with your baby? One where you can meet other parents and babies? A class that can help you bond with your baby, where you can relax together whilst encouraging your baby's development?

Baby massage is a perfect first class to do with your baby!

My baby massage teaches you lots of massage techniques that will relax, calm and soothe your baby. You'll learn some wonderful techniques to help soothe colic and tummy troubles. You'll also learn some really effective ways to encourage tummy time, in a gentle and fun way, and also learn how your baby can make friends with gravity!

Benefits:

- Encourages flexibility in the hips, spine, shoulders, knees and ankles
- Promotes good posture sitting and standing
- Encourages happy, gentle tummy time
- Develops a strong structural foundation while baby's self-confidence grows
- Helps to encourage baby to walk with a good posture, with the baby’s heels down and baby's feet spread on the floor to enable baby to stand and walk with more confidence and security
- Opens front of chest and shoulders, which helps baby to breathe more deeply
- Relaxes baby’s tummy to ease colic, constipation, and other tummy troubles
- Relaxes baby to help ease anxiety or stress
- Encourages and promotes your baby’s circulation to feet and hands
- Promotes confident holding and reassurance
- Helps mum with post-natal depression
- Helps parent and baby bond

Classes are suitable from 4 weeks old until your baby is crawling. The techniques are simple so that you can continue massaging your baby at home, and continue into toddlerhood.

The group courses are held in the lovely midwife clinic, Verloskundige Pratijk Helende Meesters in Amstelveen (opposite Amstelland hospital), or you can arrange a private one in the comfort of your own home. The group classes are kept small so that you meet other parents in an intimate and friendly environment. We follow the babies' lead. Anytime your baby needs to be fed, bum changed, or just needs a cuddle, I encourage you to do so, and help you to feel at ease and comfortable.

We start each session with some holding and reassurance techniques, with your baby fully clothed, until your baby feels happy and content. Once your baby is ready, we then begin the massage with their clothes off (using soft towels to cover the areas of the body not being touched), using some lovely organic oil (provided). Relaxing music is played while we gently soothe our babies with some light nursery rhymes, and lots of relaxation breathing to help parents relax. The last session is an exciting sensory class which the babies love!

Each session is 1.5 hours long, with some relaxing time at the end for tea/coffee, snacks (and some yummy homemade cake!) and lots of time to chat.

Other family members, dads, mums, grandparents, and siblings are welcome too!
