Our team

Sophie Van Cauwelaert

Nice to meet you! I am Sophie, midwife and postnatal doula. My interest in the world of birth started as a child, when my aunt told me stories about her job as a midwife. I started the training myself in 2016. An intense process that brought me closer to myself. In Austria I saw an alternative way of working, with more respect for the natural course of a birth. Respect for the parents and their wishes is also very important to me. That is why I started in 2020 together with Ruth Sneyers “Together for Respectful Birth" on. 

as a teacher HypnoBirthing I give parents more confidence in their own abilities and the strength to come for their wishes. I also hope to do this with all the parents we can guide with Geborgen Birth.

Chloe Lemonne

I am Chloe, midwife and postnatal doula at Safe Birth. I am also the mother of a boy, the sweetheart of Dries and the oldest of 3 sisters. My dream to live in Ghent and start my family there gave me the feeling of “everything is possible!”. I am a morning person, I like the energy of new beginnings. My dream is to cook delicious food, with vegetables from the vegetable garden, for parents who have just given birth to their baby and simply "are" there, supporting all phases of parenthood, from the preconception until late in the postnatal period of time.

What am I taking with me?

I like to take all my little tools with me for body, heart, soul and spirit: the placenta as medicine, Bach flowers, gemmotherapy, and a lot of other tools such as art therapy, affirmations, massage, rebozo, ... but also my intuition, my feelings and my experience as a wife and mother.

Harriet Ten Kate
