Hi! I'm Maura. I grew up in a town next to Amsterdam with two creative parents and am currently living in Amsterdam-Noord on a house-arc with my great love and two wonderful kids. Before starting my work as a doula I studied applied psychology, specialized in Sustainability and worked as an independent masseuse (I still do, for more info you can visit www.leafmegreen.nl).
From a young age, I enjoyed asking lots of questions, being creative and working with my hands. I have always had a strong sense of justice and speak up when I feel something isn't right.
As a doula I have a creative and holistic approach. I like using bodywork, beautiful rituals and information based on current science as tools for my work with you. I also find it extremely important to do everything I can to make sure every woman is able to give birth in full autonomy and her rights as a pregnant woman are respected. As your doula, I commit to standing next to you in this process and respecting and honoring your wishes a 100%.
