Lisa Maternity Nurse

My partner and I had our first child earlier this year and we could not have asked for better support than Lisa. What makes her a unique kramzorg is that she is the perfect union of knowledgable coach and warm caretaker. She answered our questions with endless patience and just the right amount of information so that we never felt overwhelmed, while also helping us develop our own instincts as parents. More than that, Lisa was a caring and reassuring presence in our home, attentive to our physical and emotional needs as new parents. She’s a highly emotionally intelligent and competent kramzorg and we can’t recommend her enough. -Sherry

Our family had a great pleasure to have Zippy as our kraamzorg to help us get to know our newborn baby girl. We learnt a lot from the love, care and experience that Zippy brought to our home. Apart from getting to know the practical things, Zippy ensured that both me and my partner get enough sleep during the day so that we stay sane and I could recover from birth fast, that was very valuable in the first days. We also appreciate that for many parenting aspects Zippy offered us a variety of options so that we can try things out and choose ourselves what works for us. And yees, the kraam oat porridge in the morning that Zippy kindly offered us was yummy! Thank you Zippy and the team for organising this experience for us. -Mila

I have had the pleasure of receiving maternity care from both Lisa and Zippy. Lisa with our first born and Zippy with our second. Both Lisa and Zippy played instrumental roles in getting us well set up for each new chapter. They both blended into our family well and were a pleasure to have around, imparting their wisdom and offering huge amounts of support. Zippy was so lovely with our toddler too, happy to help with him and in anyway she could to ease the load. I can’t thank Lisa and Zippy enough! -Polly

My partner and I have been very happy to have Zippy’s help at home. I honestly found her help invaluable, it was such a relief having her around. We didn’t really know what to expect before hand, so I was very surprised of how she blended in our family and our days. She never stopped for a minute, helping of course with taking care of my recovery and our son’s evolution, but also with chores around the house. I think her personality is such a plus, she is such a nice person to be around. We will miss her :-) -Victoria

‘’Amazing Kraamzorg experience after c-section! Zippy and Lisa helped us to get up and running with our newborn, and support us emotionally and practically with attention and care. We mostly stayed with Zippy, who was a wonderful presence at home and has great knowledge. We look forward to welcome Lisa and Zippy again when our family will grow bigger!’’ - Matilde

During our maternity week we were guided by Zippy. Zippy has a lot of love for the profession, is committed, reliable and had a good sense of what my boyfriend and I needed. She gave us the opportunity to let her know what we needed during the maternity period, adapted to our needs and took care of us. We also had conversations about parenting, our daughter's development and the many practical questions we had about her care and breastfeeding. When we said goodbye to Zippy, we let her know that thanks to her help, we had gained the confidence needed to shape parenthood for our daughter by ourselves. We are so grateful to have had her as our maternity nurse! - Annemarie

It was great to have Lisa with us during the maternity week. She is kind, knowledgeable and focussed on ensuring everyone gets sufficient rest. She made sure we’d be as prepared as possible for the weeks to follow. She patiently answered all our questions and was also available at night for any concerns we had. I’d highly recommend Lisa as a maternity nurse. - Nora

Thanks to Lisa we had a very relaxed and wonderful kraamweek. She frequently asked us what our needs were and acted on them. I will surely recommend her to others! -Femke

Lisa is a kind, calm and warm person. It was easy to get along with her right from intake. She took good care of me and my little baby girl. My baby always remained calm with her. Lisa understood me well without me stating my preferences. She helped me with breastfeeding problems. She was realistic, practical in her advice and yet motivating. Her words are still a motivation for me to continue breastfeeding. Lisa has a nice way of being to the point but being subtle at the same time. She is patient in answering all questions. I appreciate the way she spoke to my baby and I have fond memories of dressing up my little one with Lisa. Post partum period comes with its own challenges which most women do not consider during pregnancy. All attention goes to baby and mother's emotional needs take a backseat. Lisa was a shoulder of support for me when I needed it. I am grateful for all the conversations we had about little and big things. Above everything else, I appreciate Lisa's honesty and openness. I wholeheartedly thank Lisa for being an important part of the beginning of my daughter's journey and my journey as a mother. I definitely recommend her. -Vidya

Lisa was very helpful during our maternity week. She gave my boyfriend and I the confidence to get to know our baby well in a calm and nice way. Also after the maternity week I had a specific question and she was more than happy to answer it. If we have a second baby we will be sure to ask Lisa again! -Hannah

Lisa is a wonderful maternity nurse! I would recommend her to everyone (I did and she will be caring for my friends too:)). Lisa is a calm, sweet and intelligent woman, who enters your family miraculously for a week. She is there for all the important moments, but at times is almost invisible so that you don’t feel like there’s a stranger around. She is very helpful, is really sweet to older siblings, very professional and skilled during check ups and the provision of information. We miss having her around! -Nikki

We were very happy with Lisa right from the beginning and I was glad to first meet with her earlier on in my pregnancy. Lisa is friendly and approachable and we immediately established a good connection with her. The calmness she exudes and her thorough working methods are characteristic of her. By chance she happened to be present and assist during the delivery which gave us a great deal of comfort. In her week with us she focused her attention on the breastfeeding assisting me greatly in its implementation. We look back with great pleasure at that wonderful, helpful and fun week - thanks again Lisa! -Joyce

We had Lisa as our maternity nurse for our third child, Fela. This was very pleasant. Lisa is calm, sweet and caring. What we really appreciated is that Lisa sees what is most needed in the family’s kraamweek. As experienced parents what we needed most was to rest/sleep, help around the house and help with our two eldest. Lisa was very good at creating this rest for us. I was able to catch up on sleep and completely trusted her with Fela. Additionally Lisa is very skilled and knowledgeable and even with a third baby it was nice to have that on hand. Lisa was very supportive in breastfeeding. With my first two I had mastitis so we tried hard to prevent that a third time and managed to do so! In short, I highly recommend Lisa! -Wies

Lisa cared for us during our ‘kraamweek’ after the birth of our first child. We couldn’t have wished for better care! Lisa has a calmness over her that puts you at ease immediately, she gives advice, tips, is honest and interested, professional and coached us in a very natural way through our first ‘kraamweek’. Also Lisa is a very nice person with a good sense of humor so it was also very nice having her around. She absolutely contributed to a wonderful ‘kraamweek’ and if we are ever to have another baby we will not hesitate to ask Lisa again.- Evelien

Lisa was amazingly supportive through my post natal period. She was careful to listen to my needs, understand my background and expectations (as an expat) and provide adequate information prior to the kraam period. Immediately after birth, she was home with us, attentive and helpful through the entire period focusing mainly on mother and baby care as I already had family around for help. I especially appreciate how much she focused on my own rest and recovery, and also how she helped us navigate the Dutch healthcare system to get the optimal care for our baby. I highly recommend working with Lisa! - Nisha

In March 2018 our second child was born. After the birth of our first we had very good maternity care, so our expectations were high. And then there was Lisa, with her peaceful manner, thoroughness and sense of humor she exceeded our expectations from the minute she walked in. She took incredible care of our baby and me, but didn’t lose sight of the wellbeing of our eldest and my husband. Above all Lisa is a nice person and that might be the most important thing when you invite someone into your home at such a vulnerable time. We could not have wished for a better start! - Gea

Lisa provides fantastic maternity care. Thoughtful and well educated. Not only willing to physically and mentally support me but she als took care of my household and daily family stuff that came up. I had maternity care previously with my first child and now with my second child I am certain I made the right choice for Lisa, I highly recommend her! - Avital

Becoming a mother in The Netherlands can be scary if you are a foreigner. The health system is completely different from the one you are used to, your family is not there to help you. I felt overwhelmed. Then I met Lisa and she fixed everything. She was able to calm down my crying baby and my anxieties. In those days, sometimes, you need someone to take over, someone that is able to tell you: “now you go to sleep, I take care of your baby”; and you just go to sleep, knowing your baby is in better hands than your own ones. If I could, I would have had her for more days…and nights. - Laura

Lisa was great and so helpful on all aspects. It makes such a difference to have someone like her by your side, especially after a difficult pregnancy. She took great care of myself, our newborn baby girl and our 2.5 yo son, gave us great advice and was in general very pleasant to be around. Would definitely recommend her! - Aurelie

The birth of our first child was not as expected. She came a month early, spent two weeks in hospital, it was a horrible time. I didn’t have a ‘Kraamweek’, and was very sad about that. With our second child I hoped things would be different, and they were, because of Lisa! I could not have wished for a nicer, sweeter or better maternity nurse. She was calm, sweet and helpful, great with our almost three year old and at times strict with me (which I needed!). We thank Lisa for this beautiful Maternity period and a wonderful memory of our first week as a family of four. - Rianne
