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.

My name is Sterre, I am 23 years old and mother of a daughter. I speak Dutch and English. Before I started working at Kraamzorg De Helpende Hand, I worked with parents and youth problems. I chose a completely different side in terms of work, because during my own maternity week I experienced how nice it was to receive maternity care. Especially in the beginning, because everything was new. It has inspired me to do this work and to share my experiences with others. I am very happy to share my knowledge and skills in this work with you and to help and support you where necessary. So that you as parents can recover peacefully and enjoy the first days with your miracle. Most parents describe me as a sociable, patient, loving person who can listen attentively and do her work with love. I am happy with the choice I made to do this work because you get a lot of appreciation for the work and really support the parents and you get a lot of love and appreciation from the parents and families. I look forward to supporting you during this beautiful period of your life.
My name is Monienke and I am 26 years old. I became a maternity nurse because it is a special and rewarding profession, helping and supporting a family during this wonderful period gives me great satisfaction. My goal is to be able to relieve the family of the less important things at that time, such as the household. Cooking and baking is something I love to do, so in addition to all the tools and support for the care of the new family member and mom, I will also be happy to provide you with a delicious meal. The qualities of caring and patience come in handy in my work as a maternity nurse. I am aware that I will participate in a special moment in your life as (expectant) parents and will therefore do my utmost to allow you as a family to enjoy the postpartum period as much as possible. Besides Dutch I also speak English. It would be nice to meet you! Love Monique

I speak Dutch, English and Spanish.
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
Parents to be, I am Olympia 26 years old and living in Amsterdam. My interest for the maternity profession began when I was a schoolgirl and became a passion during my studies. I did work as as midwife/ maternity nurse in Greece for 2 years and I feel fortunate to be able to guide and support new parents and to help adjust to life with a new baby as well as caring for both physically and emotionally. During the maternity week I will support breastfeeding as an integral part of respectful quality care as well as any other assistance which will be helpful in making this experience as natural and comfortable as possible. Also I would make sure that you as a mother who just gave birth can focus on the recovery and that the family can get used to the new situation. I speak English and Greek fluently. I hope to support you during the maternity week.
Hi Expectant parents, My name is Shanesia, I am the mother of a son and would like to come and support you during the maternity week. I started working in maternity care because I did not have a nice maternity week myself and I would like to be able to make a difference for other parents. I would like to support you with breastfeeding and relieve you of the burden of housework. I would also like to contribute to a good meal and care for other family members to make the maternity week as pleasant as possible for you as a family.
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.

I will spoil you with delicious meals and take care of the household chores so that you can enjoy your miracle in peace. If there are several children, I like to play with them. I speak Dutch, English and Berber. If you want to know more about me, please indicate me as a preference so that we can have an introductory meeting and get to know each other better. Hope to see you soon!
