About me

I was born in Belgium to a Belgian mother and American father, and spent my entire childhood in the US. After studying International Business in university, my career took me to New York, Beijing and then London. In London, while still working in my corporate job, I realised that my heart was simply not in it, and that I needed to reconnect with my true self, the side of me that felt alive and bursting with love when helping and supporting others. Coupled with my admiration for the female body, pregnancy and childbirth, I knew what my purpose was - to be a doula.

In 2013, I attended my first doula training with Liliana Lammers and the famous French obstetrician Michel Odent. In this training, my doula “fire” was lit, so to speak. I learned that birth isn’t just about the birth of a baby, but the birth of a mother, of a father, of a community and of a society. Michel Odent has a famous saying, which is “to change the world, we must first change the way babies are being born”. When we start to trust what the body can do, we can avoid disturbing a birthing person unnecessarily. My job as a doula is help create the right environment for you to feel relaxed, at ease and safe, allowing you to connect with your baby and your body. Because no one knows your body and your baby better than you. It is your unique journey through pregnancy and motherhood.

In 2020, I moved to Amsterdam when I was 4 months pregnant, having to navigate a totally different maternity system as an expat, during a global pandemic. I know how it can feel to be in a new country or new place in your life, excited but also scared of the many unknowns. I’d love to you support you along this wild and individual journey into motherhood.

I am a mama to two little ones - Alma and Julius - whose entries into this world were wildly different. I can tell you more about that when we meet :).

I love meeting new people and hearing about everyone’s individual paths. Feel free to get in touch for a (free) initial chat and coffee.

Working with Natalie was among the best decisions we made during my pregnancy. There are two things that I think make Natalie a particularly special and skilled doula: first, she has a magical ability to put people at ease and read and respond to the energy and needs of the room. She felt like a dear friend from the very beginning. Second, she extends care far beyond what I might have expected and became a deeply trusted resource for all manner of questions and fears during pregnancy and after. The result was that I went into my labor and into motherhood feeling deep trust in myself, and had an extremely positive and empowering birth. We can’t thank Natalie enough!

We had such a wonderful experience with Natalie as our doula! Both my partner and I loved the hypnobirthing course and the labour preparation meetings. We felt well informed and prepared for the big day. Natalie's calm presence and positiveness played a key role to having a beautiful experience during the labor. I highly recommend Natalie to anyone looking for a gentle and caring doula!

We cannot thank Natalie enough for her support before, during and after the birth of our first child. From the start, Natalie took the time to get to know me and developed a lovely supportive relationship over a short period of time. I loved that Natalie is qualified in hypnobirthing and was able to incorporate these principles in her support. Natalie’s calm and reassuring presence during my birth had a positive impact on my mindset, coping mechanisms and stress levels, something I believe significantly contributed towards experiencing a smooth home birth, without any intervention. Natalie was also an advocate for my wishes throughout, supporting me to achieve the birth I had originally planned and wanted. Post birth, Natalie continued to provide amazing emotional support. She is an incredible Doula, she went above and beyond and completely exceeded our expectations around the support a Doula can provide. I would highly recommend her to anyone (you won’t regret it)!.

We met Natalie as one of the teachers in our birthing prep class where she did a wonderful job not just preparing us for what to expect but also building the confidence so that we are ready for the birth of our first child. We decided to work with her as our Doula relatively late in the pregnancy and it was the best decision we could have made. Natalie was not just a wonderful calm and caring person, but also amazing in understanding our needs and vision. She was very flexible in her approach to ensure we had an empowering birth experience that was exactly right for us. I am beyond grateful for the incredible work she has done with us and highly recommend her to anyone looking for a Doula who will be a true partner during this very special time.
