Breastfeeding & formula

If you want more information around food choices for your baby, you can contact your midwife for this already during pregnancy. After delivery, she will help you get started. For specific breastfeeding problems or challenges you can make an appointment. Think of; pain during feeding, difficulties with your baby drinking, adjustments in milk production, pumping, phasing out breastfeeding, combining or switching to artificial feeding, bottle habituation….

Perinatal counseling

Becoming a mother is just about the most profound transition in a person’s life. It
makes you happy and proud but also vulnerable and uncertain. Do you find it difficult to find a new balance? Is motherhood overwhelming you? We like to listen to your story and together we find out what you are up against and where you want to go.

Who are we?



For many years I have been working as a passionate and enthusiastic midwife. In 2013 I graduated and first worked in midwifery in the Netherlands for a while. After that I moved to Belgium. There I worked in a group practice for 8 years, where I have accompanied (home)births in addition to pregnancy and postnatal period.

Together with my partner, his teenage son, our little baby and two cats we are a nice family. In addition, I write a column for an online magazine, I like to read very exciting thrillers, I regularly detox at the spa, I paint and I can enjoy a nice glass of bubbles once in a while.

Since 2022 I have been a member of ELLE midwives team. So cliché, but I have the most beautiful profession in the world


Midwife & lactation expert

I am Barbara and I live with my husband and children (young adults) in Meerbeek. You can see me walking through the fields and woods there, it is beautiful here! I like to lie with a book on the couch. As often as can be, we also use our campervan to find other beautiful places.

As a midwife I have been accompanying couples over the past 20 years through pregnancy, birth and postnatal period. I also studied lactation. As a colleague of Britte, my focus at ELLE is mainly on the postnatel period. I find it incredibly exciting to be able to support young families during this special period.

Inspired by all those parents and babies, I began to study the important transition phase that is called parenthood. In 2022 I completed the perinatal counselor training with the goal of supporting women’s mental well-being, from pregnancywish to babyhood.

Where can you find us?

You can see us cycling or driving around from Leuven to Brussels. Is your town not listed, but would you still like to call on an ELLE midwife? Feel free to call or email and we will look at the possibilities together.

Make a first appointment by phone (016/664.391) or via the online agenda. All follow-up appointments are made during the initial consultation. It is also possible to schedule a breastfeeding consultation.

Our appointments take place at Practice Vuurvlinder or at your home (if needed). After delivery, visits are at home until your baby is 3 weeks old, after that there is an option to come to the practice for an appointment.


"Na de geboorte van Hector haalde de teleurstelling me van mijn roze wolk. Het geven van borstvoeding verliep veel moeizamer dan gedacht. Gelukkig was jij, Britte, er om mij doorheen alle tranen en emoties toch tot rust te brengen die eerste avond thuis. De verdere opvolging verliep deskundig met zo veel nuttige tips, zoals het aanleren en mee uitvoeren van verschillende borstvoedingshoudingen. Je liet me groeien in zelfzekerheid en luisterde zeer goed naar mijn noden en problemen. Je was er om mij/ons bij te staan, ook steeds bereikbaar wanneer nodig. Ik zou iedereen zo een fantastische vroedvrouw willen aanraden. Bedankt Britte!"
