Prins van den Bergh (EN & NL)
My name is Prins van den Bergh (35) I’m the mother of 3 children (11, 6 and 4 years old), married to Maarten, who owns a surf school based at Bloemendaal. We live close to the sea near Haarlem, about a 30 minute drive from Amsterdam. Living here is the perfect combination of nature and city life for us. We raise our kids to love and respect nature, the environment and each other.
I have always been interested in health and wellbeing. Before deciding to become a doula, I was a passionate cook and food entrepreneur, and I collaborated with medical experts to write cook books about healthy food choices.
I completed my doula training in Rotterdam in 2018 at IN BLOEI. I’m a member of the NBVD (the Dutch Association for Doula’s) and I stay up to date as a birth professional by regularly attending additional courses. I’m also a pregnancy massage specialist, which I’m delighted to add to my services.
As a doula I love to support women and couples on their pregnancy journey, because I believe a positive birth experience is vital for families. My mission is to let each woman be in true contact with herself and to trust in her own power and intuition. My goal is to let you (and your partner) feel supported and heard, and regardless of whether it is a home or a hospital birth, I’m there for you both. Every woman and every couple is unique. And that is what makes this work so special to me. The connection that you will build together, and the support I can give to help facilitate that. It is an awesome pure, raw and loving journey in one of the most special periods of your life! How you experience your birth can really make a difference. I would be honoured to be part of your journey.
