Over the years I have learned a lot in various lines of work. I will not go into all of them here. I'll give you and overview of the courses that I have done that are relevant to my work as a Health Coach, Doula, Childbirth Educator, Breastfeeding Educator and Postpartum Doula.
As a teenager I was already interested in health and nutrition. This means that even before I had babies I was doing courses and learning about health and nutrition.
I started back in 1992 with my first courses.
Initially it was just to find out whether I did want to take it further, or whether it would just stay a simple interest. It was super interesting so I did choose to take it further. Due to various things that happened in my life I wasn't able to right away start using it in practise, but I did continue learning for the most part and have used my knowledge with friends and family to help them improve their health or regain their health.
It has always remained interesting to me, so I have gone for as broad an education as possible in the field of health and nutrition.
On this page I will list all the courses that I have done and when I have finished them. When you click on the name it will take you to a page in which I write a bit more about that particular course. Some were more intensive than other, all were very interesting.
