Our team

Sophie Van Cauwelaert

Nice to meet you! I am Sophie, vroedvrouw en docent. Mijn interesse in de wereld van geboortes begon als kind, toen mijn tante mij verhalen vertelde over haar job als vroedvrouw. In 2016 begon ik zelf aan de opleiding. Een intens traject die me dichter bij mijzelf heeft gebracht. In Oostenrijk zag ik een alternatieve manier van werken, met meer respect voor het natuurlijke verloop van een geboorte. Ook respect voor de ouders en hun wensen is voor mij heel belangrijk. Daarom startte ik in 2020 samen met Ruth Sneyers “Together for Respectful Birth" on. 

Als docent ‘Positief Bevallen met Hypnobirthing‘ geef ik ouders meer vertrouwen in hun eigen kunnen en de kracht om te komen voor hun wensen. Dit hoop ik ook te doen met alle ouders die we bij Geborgen Geboorte mogen begeleiden.

Chloe Lemonne

I am Chloe, midwife and postnatal doula bij Geborgen Geboorte. Ik ben ook mama van twee, het lief van Dries en de oudste van 3 zussen. Mijn droom om in Gent te wonen en daar mijn gezin te starten gaf mij het gevoel van “alles kan!”. Ik ben een ochtendpersoon, ik hou van de energie van een nieuw begin. Mijn droom is om lekker te koken, met groenten uit de moestuin, voor ouders die net bevallen zijn van hun baby en er  gewoon « zijn », ondersteunend, voor alle fases van ouderschap, van de 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.
