I am Anastasia . I am working as a midwife and childbirth educator for the last 10 years. In 2020, I became a mother myself to a baby boy. I came from Greece, and I live in the Netherlands and specifically in the area of Eindhoven for the last 4 years. I am the owner and creator of Touching Life. This idea came up due to the need that especially other expat mothers have to be informed about the maternity health system of the country, their need to share their feelings and possible fears as mothers since they are very far from their country and their own people.
In my practice, I use a holistic approach. Every day I realized how wise nature is and how amazing the body has created. The consecutively home visits to nursing mothers are an integral part of my everyday life, helping mothers with breastfeeding, neonatal care, and discussing everyday issues of concern. I believe that the start of your life determines the quality of the continuation. I see and experience that there is still much to be optimized in this. This is why I’m passionate about making birth better for all by bringing individuals into the center of their experience.
I am accustomed to saying that love, support, and properly documented scientific knowledge will make every woman possible to bring her child to the world as she desires. I believe in scientifically documented obstetric care with a holistic approach that focuses on the needs of the mother, child, and family. Every day, therefore, I try to offer such care to prepare the couple for their new role as parents, a good childbirth experience, and family support in the next few weeks at home.
I aim to meet and get to really know every couple, through an open discussion and by giving them space and chance to express their wishes, to know their options and to be well prepared, not only physically, but also emotionally – for the birth of their child within a respectful environment.
I will be at your side to advise you, solve questions, and provide obstetric care from the beginning and throughout pregnancy to childbirth and the period of postpartum.
