I have always known that I was going to be a midwife. The whole process of pregnancy, birth and parenthood fascinates me. During the last year of my studies I did an internship in Rwanda during 3 months. This experience confronted me with both beautiful and difficult moments in life. It made me grow as a midwife and I use this to guide you through pregnancy, birth and the postpartum period.
After I graduated I was so lucky to start at Zwanger in Brussel. Together with my colleagues I want to support you during this unique period.

I am the oldest in the Zwanger in Brussel-club! I graduated 22 years ago as a midwife and I worked in different hospitals in Flanders.
Since 2005 I work as an independent midwife and in 2008 I raised Zwanger in Brussel together with Katlijn. After 8 years of ups and downs as an independent midwife I am still thrilled to welcome newborn babies in Brussels!
After all those years Zwanger in Brussel has become a house where more than only midwives are working and I'm so proud of this!

I was very young when I looked at the midwives at the maternity ward with wondering eyes and a slight jealousy, because they could enter the rooms with newborn babies. Since then I started to cherish a dream that I crazy enough forgot when I graduated from college. After one year of studying Agogische Wetenschappen the pieces fell together when I chose to become a midwife. During my last year I did an internship in Sweden where I got a taste of the life as an independent midwife. This is what I wanted to do in the future. After one year of working as a nurse with refugees I'm very proud to call myself finally a midwife!

After my studies I worked for one year in St Pierre in Brussels to come to the conclusion that this way of working does not fit my point of view. Then I worked one year as an interim and I got to know a lot of different hospitals. I combined this with visits at home. In the end of 2008 I started officially as an independent midwife. My dream came true! After 6 years of intensive collaboration with French colleagues in Brussels and giving birth myself, I decided to join Zwanger in Brussel in 2014. And I don't have any regrets!
I am on maternity leave since 1 April 2017.
