I do not care what kind of birth you have… A home birth, scheduled cesarean, epidural hospital birth or if you birth alone in the woods next to a baby deer. I care that you had options, that you were supported in your choices, and that you were respected – January Harshe

About Me

My name is Desie, I was born in 1979 and together with my family I live in Eindhoven.

After obtaining a physics degree, I have been working in a research & development department since 2003. My evidence based mindset has been nurtured and developed by this environment and together with my down-to-earth mentality this defines me as a Doula.

My interest in becoming a Doula started growing after giving birth to my own three children. I attended many trainings and conferences to explore this interest. I’m active as a Doula since 2017 and I completed my education at BiA Doula Training. I am a certified member of the National Association for Doula’s (NBvD). I followed my massage training at the Massage Academie.

I like to play the piano and to have long walks (or runs) in the woods with my dog. I am a people person; I love the chaos and small talk that comes with our family life, but also taking time to truly connect with each other.

Not only babies are BeingBorn during labor; also mothers and fathers are BeingBorn. My biggest motivation of being a Doula is to give all of them the best possible start of this new adventure. A positive birth experience gives you a head start into this new stage and remains something to get confidence and strength from for the rest of your life. I wish for every mother to have a beautiful birth; that you felt strong and in control, that you not endured it, but experienced and owned it. I’m passionately dedicated to achieving this.
