What others say about Doula Denise

“Denise is the perfect birth partner, she will be your friend, confidant and cheerleader if and when you need it. Denise was so knowledgable about pregnancy and birth and she really put us at ease. Denise is a practical thinker, a warm personality and good communicator and she can easily adapt to situations.

The tips and tricks in the preparation for birth and throughout the pregnancy, really assisted us. From the excercises that eased back pain, to the support during labour up until to the very ‘moment’ by my bedside.

This is way more than a job for Denise- she takes this in her stride with much passion, capability and grace.”

Gabi & Daniel

“Denise was an angel and a priceless support during our delivery.

I couldn’t recommend her enough, especially to non Dutch parents.

We are forever thankful!”

Sabine & Lorenzo

“What a delight to have Denise present at my first birth! Her calm voice assuring me is still in my head today :). She was a huge support for my boyfriend as well; without her we probably couldn’t have felt as such a team. She gave him confidence and instructions as how to support me. Denise felt what was needed before we could even express it. I am so grateful for her presence & support throughout my pregnancy and of course my labour.”

Maria

“Denise was my doula during the birth of my first baby. As it was my first baby, I wasn’t sure what to expect during labour, how would it be and so there I realised that I made the right decision of hiring a doula. She was one person known to me whom I can trust fully and can ask for any help without any hesitation. She was very supportive, polite, warm, informative and calm. She constantly put counter pressure in the back and help me coping up with the pain. She helped me providing food & drinks. She is been extremely humble and helpful during the whole delivery and the pictures and birth story she did for me is something I cherish always. Thanks for being my doula Denise!!”

“I get emotional thinking of my birth experience with Denise. She held my hand, looked into my eyes and guided my breathing which was exactly what I needed to get through my 4 day labor. I don’t know what I would have done without her. What we went through together was more intimate then what I’ve experienced with friends or family, it was amazing to have her by my side.”

“Denise has been my Doula since June. I gave birth to my little girl Amaia on the 16th August and I had my final meeting, which climaxed with a post natal inspired Mexican ritual (rebozo closing ceremony) exactly when Amaia was 1 month old, so I am prepared to face the new world as a proud mamá.

Denise has been only a whatsapp message away all along, answering to all my queries, as crazy and picky as they might have been, and she always had a simple, prompt and useful advice for me. Knowledgeable, resourceful and a friendly support has been very much appreciated. The massages techniques for my husband proved to be very welcomed during labour as well as the spinning babies exercises. Thanks to your TENs device I managed to go through labour under control, as much as I could but I will never forget the hot water feeling you put on my on my lower back as soon as I got into the birth pool. I felt so peaceful and managed to regain my energy for the final pushes.
The birth story and the photo pics of the most important labour moments are amazing. Something we will well preserve and show to Amaia one day. She will be proud of your work too 🙂

All in all, considering Amaia is our first baby and we have no family in the country, Denise’s support has been fantastic! Many thanks Denise, I wish you all the success in your so enjoyed job 🙂 Let’s keep in touch. PS: the banana cake and the beetroot soup you cooked were delicious and good to know that they are very healthy. Thanks a lot for taking care of us.”

“Denise was my doula in my first birth. She is very calm, which helped to calm me down as well. Her advices helped me a lot, as well as my husband.

It was a completely new experience and I’m sure that her support both before and during the labour was super important for giving me more confidence and tranquillity. I could go through all my fears because I knew that she was there supporting me.

I don’t have words to thank for all this help!
I’m sure that she was born to be doula. This is a wonderful talent and to have met her was a lovely present in my life!”
