Of course I can tell you all about myself, but nothing gives a better picture than the experience of others. I like to share the experience of other parents.

Our daughter needed medical attention and Sanne immediately recognized the symptoms. As a result, we ended up in a clinical mill where in many cases you are helped quite theoretically. In that process, Sanne is the emotional and practical counterpart that gave us the courage to persevere when we were “brushed off” or not taken seriously. She has a lot of experience and brings peace to a hectic first period with your child.

Sanne went through our house like a whirlwind, the first night we called in her help. Our daughter was a few weeks old – the maternity care had been gone for a while – and our poor girl kept crying. No idea if this was normal. By now we had scanned the entire internet, tried everything to comfort her and we couldn’t go on anymore. Then there was Sanne. What a relief! She brought so much hope and new insights. Even after that one evening we still had regular contact and we experienced that as very pleasant and a true support.

Our daughter needed medical attention and Sanne immediately recognized the symptoms. As a result, we ended up in a clinical mill where in many cases you receive rather theoretical help. In that process, Sanne is the emotional and practical counterpart that gave us the courage to persevere when we were “brushed off” or not taken seriously. She has a lot of experience and brings peace to a hectic first period with your child. Moreover, she offers a listening ear because she knows that the stress and uncertainty in this early beginning (with all the sleep deprivation and hormones that entails) can be quite tough.

Our daughter is now a cheerful girl. Sanne has saved us a lot of pain and effort by pointing the right path. We never expected to call in this form of help beforehand. The maternity assistant’s tips and tricks would be enough for us and we felt we could handle this. And yet, it turned out to be necessary and nice!

My advice to all (new) parents: follow your instincts. Even if it is your first child, you really know when something is wrong with your baby. And you don’t have to do that alone. Enlist the help of Sanne. In addition to her knowledge and experience, she is particularly involved: a true support that you can use very well, especially in this difficult period.

Sanne’s help has been indispensable in my experience of the past months. Not in the first place because from that conscious first visit and a number of times afterwards, each time with the help of Sanne, things went much better with our daughter, but also because I was doing better. By phone or by visit, the thought that there is someone who takes a much more personal and detailed look at your situation with your child is extremely reassuring.

You’re preparing …, or not really. A little, maybe a lot or not at all. Mentally or practically, digitally, with a book on your lap or through the stories of people around you. One talks about a pink cloud, the other about how easy a baby actually is, because it usually sleeps. Another person talks about the usually distorted image of average reality. According to many experiences, the latter is not a pink cloud at all.

I really just prepared myself for how I could help with the delivery and my role to make this go as smoothly as possible. The rest was practical planning. The maternity assistant would explain it all in peace and professionalism. And it was. What a sublime maternity aid we had; a seasoned “baby whisperer”, or rather a “newborn whisperer”. This nuance turned out to be everything for me. This turned out to be the difference between the postpartum period and the first few months, and between counsel and desperation.

At the end of the maternity care days, I began to notice how intense it could be to hear your baby cry with less sleep than usual or even no sleep at all, plus intensive days of learning, doing and arranging. My reaction to defenseless suffering has always been very sensitive … and this time it was my own daughter who had smiled so perfectly in her sleep the same day. The maternity aid said that what we experienced for the first time in our lives were nothing more than regular days. Your baby is then a bit more difficult than before and has quite a few extra needs. Ok … luckily, we’re here for her – even if it takes me a week!

Although we will never know exactly, in retrospect this seemed like the beginning of what was going to be a very difficult period for us. The crying became stronger, the nights shorter, the reading and searching for answers longer and the maternity care had meanwhile moved on to another family. We were concerned. Hear this? Is this what they call clustering and why is it already with our daughter, or is it still? Why is she suddenly drinking so little? She cries differently now, worrying, because sometimes there is not even a sound from her throat while I can see her face turn red and her eyes are tightly squeezed together.

Parents, the GP, midwives and the consultation office have now been canceled and visited for a number of days, with the result; “This is also part of the game” or “this crying is normal, it is not too bad at the moment”. We felt unheard and helpless in helping our daughter. In the meantime I was firmly convinced that she needed help ….

We know Sanne from our personal network. We contacted her with some hesitation, precisely because we thought we knew she would be active in the vacuum after maternity care and before any necessary medical care. She was there … right away. In the evening, on her free Saturday. She stormed through our house in search of our things she needed to carry out her structured service delivery. In addition, she had brought some of her own things, as an example. Without asking, I follow her directions and give her what she needs. “More towels”, “how do you usually heat the milk?”. In between acts I got tricks that I still have in my repertoire to this day. She did not hesitate to say what immediately struck her and what we should do with it immediately. “Let me know how it goes tomorrow, I’ll call myself anyway,” she said. “You are doing fantastic. I see that you are very involved and concerned, together we will look for the solution and I am convinced that we will find it ”.

Not in the first place because from that conscious first visit and a number of times afterwards, each time with the help of Sanne, things went much better with our daughter, but also because things went better with me, her help has been indispensable in my experience of the past months. By phone or by visit, the thought that there is someone who takes a much more personal and detailed look at your situation with your child is extremely reassuring. The thought that someone can help you who understands that after midwifery and maternity care, a very important and often intense period begins. A time when even as the most informed, involved, calm, capable, new parent you will have to accept all the help you can get.

A period where it is actually quite strange, that you usually have to face it in pairs and sometimes even all by yourself. It has been a great experience and how much I hope that Sanne’s help will not be needed more often, it is a relief for me to know that she is there. We are grateful to her and will not hesitate for a moment to call on her expertise and fine, personal approach if necessary.

Sanne assisted us around the birth of our first daughter Noa. During the pregnancy she has been our go-to person, especially in relieving our fears and concerns about previous miscarriages. We could always contact her for all our questions and she was immediately available for us.

We know Sanne as a warm and sweet person, who is firm and clear at the same time. We really liked this at a time when everything with a newborn is so uncertain. In the meantime we noticed that in case of emergencies 😉 we sometimes got lost on the internet, looking for answers to all new questions. But every time we were very happy to speak to Sanne quickly.

In addition to all this, she is very knowledgeable, which immediately gives a lot of confidence. We would therefore heartily recommend Sanne to everyone!
