Tania The Grateful Doula


De Kwakel, Netherlands

About me

Hi, I’m Tania, HSP, mother of three girls, 11 year old twins and a 2 year old girl. Even the cat is a girl, so my husband got a male Labrador to try and even the odds. It is a female dominated house and I’m proud to be raising, feminist, honest, fair and loving children. I was born in South Africa, and raised in Portugal where I met my husband and together as a family we lived in London UK, Valencia Spain, Toronto Canada, and now we hope to set roots in The Netherlands
I love a glass of wine shared over a lengthy deep conversation, especially if is something that I’m passionate about, like evidence based birth and rights, photography and any Netflix series I might be binging on. I love being surrounded by green and you will often find fresh flowers in my home. I would love to collect more plants, but my little one is on her discovery phase and has destroyed most of them. I love the water, any kind of water, it soothes my soul when it needs soothing and energises me when I’m in need of a boost.
It seems that I have since opened a door, and cannot stop training and learning about birth, and have since specialized in providing support for birthing people that identify as survivors, anxiety in the perinatal area, spinning babies, pregnancy massage, and I also organize a pregnancy circle where we explore the unconscious process of pre-conception, pregnancy and birth. It seems that my curiosity for all things birth will never dye down, and I'm pretty ok with that!
I feel that everyone’s birthing experience is special and unique and I am always grateful to be chosen to be a part of this journey, to help you navigate your wishes and to be witness to your families strength and to call you friend.
