I am Pinar, the founder of Kraamzorg De Helpende Hand. I am 27 years young and live in Amsterdam. I am half Dutch, half Turkish and because of this I can adapt to multicultural families easily. I really enjoy learning about every culture during my work.
Why did I become a maternity nurse? I really enjoy the satisfied feeling I get when I have completed a maternity week. The maternity week is so intense, you are so close to the life of another family for 1 week. You share beautiful, but sometimes difficult moments with each other. I think it’s important that there is a good connection between us, so that this maternity week will be a very nice and good experience and for me to make a difference this way.
I realize very well that having a baby is very special and certainly not obvious. I am therefore very grateful that I am given the confidence to help families in a vulnerable period such as the maternity week. My goal is to give you as a family a good start and to give you the tools to take care of your baby, so at the end of the week we can look back on beautiful memories.
Maternity care is available in the following languages:
I am Vasiliki and I am 29 years old. Previously I lived and worked in Greece as a midwife. Once in the Netherlands I chose to work as a maternity nurse, because I find the job very interesting. The maternity week is very important for every mother and baby. That's why I make sure it will be memorable for any family. During the maternity week I will guide you carefully and passionately to learn the basics about baby care and breastfeeding. Achieving successful breastfeeding requires persistence and patience. I have these traits and I will help you practice while breastfeeding. I advise every mother to be calm without stress to enjoy this period. Besides Dutch I also speak English and Greek. My hobbies are cycling, running and basketball. I am happy to help you during the delivery and maternity week.

Hi (future) parents, I'm Priscella I'm 35 years young and I have a 16 year old son. I have always worked in elderly care, but from the moment my son was born, I realized what an important profession a maternity nurse has. I was still very young and inexperienced myself, I had no idea what to expect, but thanks to my maternity nurse everything turned out well and I also gained a lot of self-confidence, so I can imagine better than anyone how you as parents-to-be can feel. During the maternity week I will support you in the process, after which we can hopefully look back on a beautiful period. I would be happy to speak to you during an introductory meeting to get to know each other better. Lots of love, Priscella

My name is Cherina, 35 years old and born in Amsterdam. I am a mother of 2 children aged 10 and 12 and have been living in Zaandam for 11 years now. 15 years ago I started training as a maternity nurse. I took a few years off and then worked at a primary school as a teaching assistant. That is why I also have a lot of experience with children. Because maternity care gives me more satisfaction and appreciation and I enjoy taking care of people, I went back into maternity care. I know from my experiences that no birth is the same and that is why everyone experiences the maternity week differently. My goal is therefore to create peace and help you where needed. I will support you, give you useful tips and help ensure that your first days together are relaxed. I understand all too well that some of you find it exciting to have a stranger in your house, especially the first week after giving birth when you are still discovering each other. To remove this feeling from you, I would also like to get to know you, first see if it clicks so that there will be no worries about it later and we will make it a nice maternity week with beautiful memories. I look forward to that. I wish you a very happy pregnancy for now, enjoy it and hopefully see you soon Greetings, Cherina
Dear (future) parents, I am Simone and I am 24 years young. I am a social and cheerful person but know how to keep the peace when necessary. Being a maternity nurse gives me a good feeling, every week I support a different family with different needs and wishes. I like it when there is a good atmosphere and that everyone feels comfortable. During the maternity week, I think it is important that parents who want to breastfeed are guided as well as possible so that there is a good start with breastfeeding, I also think it is important to involve brothers and sisters in the maternity week, but also to spare the parents from the bustle of the family. During the maternity week I will ensure that you are provided with a good lunch and I will also take care of the household chores so that you can fully focus on the recovery and getting to know the baby. I think it would be nice to get to know you during an introductory meeting! Hope to see you soon.
