Certified Baby Masseuse
Physical contact is extremely important for newborn babies. A baby massage can relax your baby, improve its immune system, in many cases reduce cramps, help babies with colic and is a fun activity for parents and babies. Moreover, this is an excellent way to stimulate skin to skin contact during the first weeks. Mirjam will teach each parent how to perform a massage on their newborn babies at home.
Private baby nurse and maternity care
Due to her many years of experience as a certified nurse and working on the maternity wing of multiple hospitals, Mirjam also can provide a newborn mother with private maternity care after a difficult childbirth and would be the perfect baby nurse for your newborn baby. Think about helping the mother and baby during the first days and night after arriving from the hospital. Finally, you could also hire Mirjam as a baby nurse in case mom and dad just want to leave for a short trip, or have a sound night sleep knowing the baby would be in excellent hands.
Baby Sling Consultant
Baby Slings have been proven to calm fussy babies and to help the mother and baby connect on a deeper level. Moreover, for working mothers or mothers with more than one child, a baby sling can be a very practical solution. As the body of a baby is still under development, it is important that you carry your baby safely and correctly which Mirjam can teach you to do.
