Story of Shaili's mom

"I remember our first intake meeting with Veerle. In the first few minutes I got the feeling that she is the right one and I could comfortably share my feelings with her during the childbirth. She has a warm personality and speaks English as fluently as Dutch, which was important for us. We together made a detailed birth-wish list which proved to be useful at the hospital.

I will never forget our midnight rush to the hospital. Veerle was driving her car and also supporting me well with the breathing techniques. She was constantly assuring us that things would go well and that of course was really essential in those anxious moments. Veerle was a great help to my husband, relieving him from the communication with hospital staff so that he could be close to me all the way till we see our baby !

It is a pleasure to read Veerle’s detailed birth report as we can enjoy re-living those moments even now. We are extremely happy with our decision of inviting Veerle to team up and share the joy of our baby’s birth. Thank you dear !"
