What my clients say

'Monika offered me a real psycho-corporal support to help me during my pregnancy and my childbirth. During our process, I made a confident and serene decision to give birth at home and Monika was my doula during the delivery. The work that we had done together completely helped me to free myself on the Big Day. She is an excellent professional. You can fully trust her.'
Audrey Hens
Personal Development Manager and Naturopath
'I met Monika when I was pregnant with my first child. Monika herself had recently become a mother and had a very positive experience of a natural childbirth, which has always been my wish too. We exchanged information about each phase: pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding and raising children. She always felt calm and confident and that increased my own confidence and belief that my body was perfect for all that.'
Juliana Toller
Mother
'Monika taught me what I needed to know to give birth. Centering. Safety. Presence. Calm. Breath. Our classes were more than lessons of physical exercise. They were shared teachings from a woman to a woman: knowledge exchanged, confidence and trust. I was able to live my pregnancy as a deep process of self awareness and to give birth as a catharsis.'
