Out of the Blues is a non-profit support group, which was founded by mums who experienced PND in the region and could not find support when they needed it.
Run by mums, for mums and their families this group supports those affected by Antenatal/Postnatal Depression, Postpartum Psychosis and other forms of depressive illness throughout the UAE.
As a peer support group they offer weekly coffee mornings in Dubai & monthly coffee mornings in Abu Dhabi, Muscat & Qatar, as well as email support, phone support and Facebook pages for both men and women. These groups are open to anyone suffering from or affected by AND, PND or PPP.
Belgian psychologist, doula and certified baby massage instructor (IAIM), I live in Dubai and am passionate about perinatality. My wish is to offer support to women and their families by using a combination of my psychologist and doula knowledge and competences.
French is my usual working language but I feel comfortable in English and can also speak Spanish or Italian if needed.
Last but not least, I am a lucky mom of 3 (2010 boy and 2012 twin girls) who are very time consuming...but I love that!
Non-profit support for those with premature babies
This group offers support to those families currently in NICU or to those who have recently come home. We are not doctors, nurses or counsellors, but we are mums who know exactly what the families are going through. We all have first-hand experience of the NICU journey and want to be able to help parents who find themselves needing some support or guidance. The website www.smallandmightybabies.com has information on our recommended contacts in Dubai, where to buy premature baby clothes and stories of those Mighty Babies and their journey.
I am passionate about empowering people and helping them feel good about themselves. When we feel good, it has a huge knock-on effect on our relatives, our partners, our children, our colleagues and other people we encounter in everyday life.
To help the next generation, I believe we must first help the parents of today, to enable them to pass on life-enhancing skills. I use my Hypnotherapy & Intuitive Coaching skills to help people with self-confidence, success, motivation and self-esteem. I also work with women who are experiencing anxiety, stress, depression and panic attacks.
My intention is to help as many people as possible to rediscover their passion for life!
