I'm Maya and I live in The Hague. I'm originally from Kyoto, Japan, though I have been living in The Netherlands more than 15 years. I come to The Netherlands for my studies first, and I am married with a Dutch man. I have worked at both Japanese and International companies as Financial Administrator and (Personal) Assistant.
I had been trained at JJ Doula Training in Amsterdam, and I am taking further training continuously. I've learned massage, acupressure, Rebozo techniques and aromatherapy for pregnancy and birth.
Besides Birth Doula trainings, I had been trained as an Instructor of ‘Dancing for Birth’ and also Pregnancy Massage.
I'm very fascinated with whole process of pregnancies. As I thought about my career in the future after kids grow up, I considered what I was really looking for. I found an article of Birth Doula by chance, and it instantly rang home to me. Immediately after that, I've started a new path as Doula.
