After beginning our relationship with a meet and greet, I am committed to your health and the wellbeing of your growing family, available whenever needed throughout your entire pregnancy as well as after giving birth.
I will be there to provide you with continuous emotional and physical support and answer any and all questions you may have.
I feel privileged in welcoming into my hug any pregnant mum feeling anxious about
the birth and mothering experience.
I'm a very empathic person and I love to be surrounded by different nationalities, cultures and beliefs.
Being myself an ex-pat entrepreneur who lived in different countries with three kids, dogs, turtles and a travelling husband, I became specialized in supporting: businesswomen, ex-pat and women with travelling partners.
I’m proud to have received wonderful feedback from some of the women and families I’ve worked with.
For me, the most rewarding part of the job is building strong, beautiful relationships with
my clients and each of them has a special place in my heart!
