Who am I?

Personal

My name is Rose, I live in the Hague and I’m a mother and grandmother.

When I’m not at work, I like to be creative. I love to do crochet, knit and make Waldorf-dolls for my granddaughter. I also love to craft together with her and I enjoy walking in the park with my French Bulldog. I go to the movies regularly and also enjoy city-trips with my friends. I am very empathetic and feel connected to the anthroposophy, but I’m also grounded.

Experience

My name is Rose, I live in The Hague and I am mother and grandmother.

In addition to work, I like to be creative. I love crochet, knitting and making Waldorf dolls. I enjoy tinkering with my granddaughter and enjoying in the park with my French Bulldog. I also go to the movies regularly and find it very rich to go out for a day with friends. I have great empathy and I feel connected to anthroposophy, but I also have my feet on the ground.

I have been working in healthcare since 1979. The first twenty years of which mainly with the elderly. In 1999 I decided to do the maternity care training where I mainly gained experience with home births.

In 2001 I started working in the delivery rooms at different hospitals. Then I followed the training to become a nurse and later to become a specialized nurse (BIG registered) in obstetrics. Here I learned how to offer the best care to pregnant women, the parting women, the maternity women and the (sick) newborn. I have always enjoyed doing this. In addition, I worked once a week at the gynecology outpatient clinic. Here I was able to guide women during pregnancy and I prepared for the birth process. What struck me was that the more time I had for them, the better the delivery went. So those women looked back more positively on their birth.

I have seen how strong a woman is and what she is capable of in her own strength, to welcome the miracle. So in 2018 I decided (after having thought about it for years) to follow my dream. To become a doula! I followed the training to become a doula and I’ve been so happy with my choice!

 I have worked in the following delivery rooms:

The Elkerliek Hospital (Helmond)
MCH Westeinde (The Hague)
Haga Hospital Leyweg (The Hague)
Haga Hospital Sportlaan (The Hague)

I am also in possession of the WHO / UNICEF breastfeeding certificate.
Through all this knowledge and experience I am sure that I can offer you the best guidance. 

Experiences

What do other people say about Rose?

“During the delivery, Rose helped me with breathing techniques and made sure that I remained calm. Because I could relax in this way between contractions, I did not have to use pain medication. As a single person, I thought it was great that I was not alone for a moment, because Rose was constantly there. “

Sophie

“With humor and warmth Rose took care of us. She felt it perfectly when we needed some space. And she was there for us when it really mattered. Rose has a special place in our heart!”

Irene & Michael

“After giving birth without a doula, Rose was a very valuable addition to my second birth. I found it very special how she involved my partner in everything. Never again without Rose!”
