Doula | HypnoBirthing Childbirth Education | Trauma Informed Care
Becoming a parent, without even realising, affects every inch of our being. It changes us in ways that you can never truly imagine. It is a journey that should to be honoured and respected, and no matter how that journey unfolds, it is an experience that will stay with us forever. No matter how old you become, you will always remember how you felt and were acknowledged on that day, so feeling seen, heard, and in control of your journey is the foundation to having a positive and sometimes healing birth experience.
I am Toni. I’m originally from the UK but have called Amsterdam home now, for the past 9 years. I am a wife and a mother, and my journey to motherhood is what brought me to birth work and the calling to support parents on this crazy ride we call parenthood.
∗ I am here to listen to you, and hold space for your worries, anxieties and fears, so that you and your baby can trust and feel safe in the birthing experience.
∗ I will be there for your partner, guiding them on how best to support you, and hold space for their questions, and uncertainties; because you are all about to become a new-born family, and birth is just as transformative for them too.
∗ I will empower you to trust and listen to your intuition, to listen to your body and your baby, and be in control of your pregnancy, birth and postpartum experience.
∗ I will educate you to know you birth rights, the options available to you, and the choices that you can make to own your birth story.
