Nutrition is the thread that runs deep through my entire life, my education and profession. It is an extraordinary and special challenge for an expert to guide parents to find the most fitting and comfortable way to nurture their baby.
Since 2001 I have been a full-time employee as a lactation counselor.
Of which, 15 years was spent at the Breastfeeding Centre in Amsterdam and 2 years at the Boezemvriend. In 2014 I graduated as an acupuncturist at the TCMA in Utrecht.
The effect of acupuncture to restore physical and mental balance around the birth-process, also effects lactation in a positive way.
In 2017 I began my own lactation counseling and breastfeeding practice.
