My wife and I wanted to share our experiences to express our deep felt appreciation for the care and services provided by our kraamverzorgende Henria van der Veen. As expats living in a foreign country, giving birth and going through the tremendous life changes of having our first baby is filled with many unknowns, concerns, and uncertainties. We had no idea what to expect when we first arrived home from the hospital, and were so grateful to have been in Henria’s care. We could not have chosen a more wonderful person to be our kraamverzorgende.
From the very first meeting, just a few minutes after we arrived home form the hospital Henria was instrumental in not only taking care of the baby, but taking care of two new parents as well. Henria has a natural way about her care that is so warm and comforting that she instantly became a household favorite, to which we looked forward to seeing her each and every day. It is evident in the way she takes care of people that this is her true passion, and she genuinely cares deeply about the wellbeing of her clients and does everything in her power to ensure everyone is taken care of. .In addition to the incredibly warm and comforting care we received from Henria, we also learned so much in the time she was with us. Each day we learned more about proper baby care, and how to adjust to the arrival of our baby boy. The instructions and demonstrations she provided have been invaluable to our family. She took care not to simply show us a variety of infant care techniques, but to help us learn for ourselves so that we would remain confident after her time with us had ended.
