About me

I'm Alyne Prado, Brazilian, mom of 2, living in the Netherlands - Amstelveen since 2007. In addition to Portuguese, I also speak Dutch and English.

My wish is that every woman can make use of Doula services during  childbirth & postpartum. I say this because, as an expatriate, I felt very lonely and lost during my first pregnancy. Despite having all confidence in the Dutch healthcare system, I was in a country that was not mine, I was far from family and friends. I remember reading a lot and looking for information. My Midwife was great, yet, I was missing something. There was no one to ask or share experiences, tips and indications that I grew up hearing about from my mother, aunt, cousin, friend, neighbor, etc. 

I didn't lack information or medical assistance. However, only did I realize that what I lacked was that “warm figure” that I could lean on, complain, talk about my fears without restrictions and judgment. That figure who would be by my side taking care of Me. So, dear pregnant women, allow yourself to be taken care of by a Doula. I, together with my professional, personal and maternal experience, have a lot to offer and contribute in this journey from pregnancy to parenthood.

In februari 2022 beviel ik van mijn eerste kind. Alyne was onmisbaar tijdens mijn bevalling en in de periode daarvoor. Ik ben heel blij dat we, ondanks de kosten en de kwetsbaarheid van een bevalling, voor Alyne gekozen hebben. Als jij, net als ik destijds, niet zeker weet of een doula iets voor jou is, zijn hier wat redenen om voor een doula in het algemeen en Alyne in het bijzonder te kiezen. Als je moeilijke keuzes moet maken is er iemand die vanuit compassie, maar zonder persoonlijk belang met je meedenkt. Alyne kwam pro-actief met ideeën en gaf me het zelfvertrouwen om kritische vragen te stellen aan zorgverleners. Ik voelde me gesteund en alsof ik de regie had in het proces. Ik kwam zo ook tot een mooi geboorteplan. Ook toen mijn bevalling niet kon zoals ik het het liefste had gewild, was Alyne er voor ons. Er was ruimte voor teleurstelling en we pasten samen het plan aan, waardoor ik vertrouwen bleef houden in mijn lichaam. Tijdens de bevalling was Alyne onmisbaar. Ze was er als we haar nodig hadden, maar nam op geen enkele manier de ruimte over. Mijn partner kon me beter steunen door haar aanwezigheid. We konden alletwee volledig onszelf zijn. Alyne steunde ons op een praktische manier (ze stelde bijvoorbeeld houdingen voor), en vergemakkelijkte de communicatie met zorgverleners. Toen het me niet meer zo goed lukte om voor mezelf op te komen, nam Alyne dat van me over. Dankzij Alyne voelde ik me veilig en sterk. Dankzij Alynes bezoek na de bevalling kon ik de bevalling makkelijker een plaatsje geven: zij kon details aanvullen die ik was vergeten of over het hoofd had gezien. Daardoor begreep ik beter waarom bepaalde keuzes gemaakt moesten worden.

De todas as decisões que tomei durante a minha gestação, com certeza a escolha da Alyne foi a mais assertiva. Eu, recém chegada na Holanda, sem saber nada do sistema de saúde, completamente perdida e desesperada. Nos nossos encontros pré-nascimento, já me senti muito mais segura e confiante, pois Alyne me esclareceu tudo, tirou as minhas dúvidas e me orientou a respeito da gestação e parto. Fizemos também treinamento de massagens, técnicas de respiração e exercícios. Fui para o parto super segura. Durante o meu trabalho de parto tive a Alyne o tempo todo do meu lado, segurando a minha mão, me tranquilizando, conversando comigo. E olha que não foi rápido! Quase quarenta horas do inicio das contrações até o nascimento da minha filha. Alyne veio para a minha casa logo no início, e foi perfeito! Ela deixou a minha casa linda, iluminação, aromatização e tudo que eu poderia ter de melhor para esse momento tão especial. Me fez milhares de massagens e me encorajava a cada contração. Depois fomos para o hospital e mais uma vez ela estava lá com a gente! Ter ela do meu lado foi fundamental e extremamente importante para me ajudar na tomada das decisões, principalmente porque as coisas não saiam como eu desejei e tivemos algumas intercorrências no caminho. Ter ela, uma doula falante de inglês e holandês, entende tudo sobre o sistema, competente, tranquila e segura ao meu lado, realmente não sei como seria sem ela. Meu parto terminou em Cesárea e Alyne só foi embora depois de colocar minha bebezinha para mamar! Sem palavras para agradecer todo esforço e carinho!! Não teria como ter sido melhor!

I worked with Alyne for my first birth and she was a great doula. I would highly recommend her. She was incredibly responsive and supportive during my pregnancy, as I was in labor, and post birth as well. She has a lot of knowledge about everything from hybnobirth techniques all the way through to breastfeeding. We will definitely use her again if we have another child!
