Coaching

Some of the themes we can explore together are: the Dutch system, does it fit you or not?, fear of the delivery process, insecurities around motherhood, feelings of guilt or coming to terms with disappointments and loss. Still, coaching isn’t just about focusing on problems. Coaching is a great method to improve your well-being and quality of life in general.
