Sanne Dijkema - Birth & Postnatal Doula

Completed course: 2020

Languages Spoken: English & Dutch

A daughter, a mother, a friend, a partner, a Doula. I live in Melbourne, Australia, but was born and raised in South Africa which helped shape me into the person I am today. Pregnancy, motherhood and connecting with people are what fuel me. 

My passion and journey into birth work started with my own birth experience. Unexpectedly falling pregnant was a big adjustment. Living in a new country, away from close family and key support made it tough. I had the privilege to experience first hand what it felt like to be held through my pregnancy and postpartum. My dream is for every birthing person to feel this too. 

It is an absolute honour to stand by a birthing person and hold them through one of life's biggest transitions. My vision is to empower, support, hold space, and inspire families with knowledge and choice on their journey into parenthood. I am excited to channel my energy into this work and watch it flourish.
