About Ayu Doula Amsterdam


Welcome to my online world and thank you for taking the time to get to know Ayu Doula Amsterdam and the person behind this.

Ayu Doula Amsterdam is born out of the wish to be present for the women, men and mothers of my Community, in the Amsterdam area.


Recently the word community has taken on a total new meaning for me: in these times it seems that the invitation is to expand our boundaries and to keep the doors open to connect at distance as if we were in front of each other.


Ayu Doula Amsterdam

offers a flexible combination of "in person" and "online" support in the field of Ayurvedic Medicine, Yoga Therapy and Birth and Postpartum support.


My approach is based on listening and assessing your needs: I will be meeting you exactly where you are, so that you can safely explore new possibilities when it comes to giving birth or getting ready for the postpartum period, feeling better in your body and making healthier food and lifestyle choices. 

I'll be sharing with you some tools to make this process smooth and I'll be offering you encouragement and guidance along the way.
