She has been a member of ENCA (European Network of Childbirth Associations) since 2000, working for improvement of the care for mother and child, especially around pregnancy and birth. In 2003 she translated Penny Simkin and Ruth Ancheta's ‘The Labor Progress Handbook’ into Dutch with help of midwife Mary Zwart.
She was involved in the start of doula training in the Netherlands in 2006, and together with Saskia Bruyn wrote a Dutch book about the doula ‘De doula'. After attending workshops with Naoli Vinaver and Angelina Miranda Martinez from Mexico, she started teaching Rebozo techniques with her colleague Mirjam de Keijzer in 2007, and together they have written the book ‘The Rebozo technique unfolded’.
