Congratulations! You’re pregnant. This marks the beginning of a new period, as a woman, as a man, as a mother, as a father.

I promise you, the investment you make in the birth of your baby will be worth it. Every baby deserves a peaceful start of life. Preparation and support are key to a positive birth experience.

As your doula, I’ll be there to offer you support that fulfills your needs and wishes.

I’ll talk with you.

I’ll walk with you.

I’ll dance with you.

I’ll sing with you.

I’ll cry and laugh.

Together, we’ll do whatever it takes to make you feel comfortable.

But most importantly, I’ll be honest with you, about the possibilities, difficulties, the beauty and the messiness of pregnancy, birth, and post-partum.

As a certified doula, I’ll be your personal non-medical support person during your pregnancy, birth, and post-partum,

  • giving you information on pregnancy, birth, and post-partum
  • helping you make informed choices by making you discover your wishes and preferences
  • offering you tips, exercises & massages
  • providing continuous support during pregnancy & birth
  • helping you process your birth
  • taking care of you, your baby, and your family after your birth.

Due to my background in counselling & coaching, I pay extra attention to the psychological and emotional aspects of this whole process.

If you like, I also make beautiful pictures of your pregnant belly, your birth, and your newborn baby as your photographer.

Relax, take a look at my doula services & contact me. I’d love to join your journey to parenthood.

I was lucky from very beginning on with respect to my pregnancy and birth. Meeting Semin was one of those lucks. With the book suggestions and information she gave during pregnancy, I could prepare for my birth process from within. The fact that a respectful, wise woman who knew the process was by my side during my birth as an observer changed my energy during the birth. Looking at myself from the outside from her eyes made me to calm down. After the birth, she continued to provide psychological support and share her knowledge. I am grateful for all of this sincere help. As to her photography, she was calm, natural, prepared for and patient with the difficulties of shooting with a small child. She has eternalized a very important period of our family life on a sunny Dutch day with our 6 year old son. Thanks for supporting my little girl and me in all of these moments that are very special for us. I will enjoy our friendship from now on.

Finally I get some time for writing. 8 weeks before, 19th October [2016] My Ilham born. That was a day which was not easy for me and also for my son. But we did that. After all the complication God blessed me. I want to say thanks ''Birth Wish" from my heart. Dear Semin, you did lot for me. I'm alone in Netherland, but for your support I didn't felt that. I pray for you and your "Birth Wish". Some people thought without Doula baby can born. Of course baby can born without Doula's help. But Doula makes ur day easy and beautiful. Doula give u courage and support. Semin u remember I put lipstick that day when I went to hospital? Ha ha ha.... I think I'm the only one who put lipstick at such critical condition ;p Actually I felt courage for you. I thought what ever happen Semin will help me. And you did that. Today Ilham 8 weeks old and he can recognize his mom :) it's a beautiful feeling. Thank you Dear for everything.

I’m so glad you were there for the birth! You listened to me and asked good questions to process my previous birth. I would recommend everybody who is either going to give birth for the first time or who had a previous traumatic birth to contact you. You were a great support before and during the birth. You also took fantastic photos of the birth and our baby!
