My name is Merim. I am 28, an expat from Uzbekistan. My mother tongue is Russian, but I also speak Dutch fluently. I lived in Amsterdam for 5 years. I loved the diversity of the city and its remarkable historical monuments of pride and pain. Since 2018 I live in beautiful Amersfoort closer to nature with my beloved family. My husband is Dutch and we have 2 children together: Viktor is 5 and Kira is 2.
I am an Applied Psychology student, my specialty is Positive Psychology. It means I coach/train and create interventions for human flourishing in conscious connection with surrounding. My approach is mindful parenting. Regular guided meditations bring harmony in my life and give me new perspectives. The most valuable point is I AM experience, as being in the moment without any efforts to manipulate myself or circumstances.
My ultimate life goals are to trust my intuition and to follow my passion. I am driven by love.
Birth worker, doula
My personal experience of non-medicated home birth has awoken the primal feminine Goddess, who inspires me on my life journey. A word ‘doula’ means “the one who serves” from ancient Greek. Serving life giving creator of all Goddess is ultimate commitment. When else if not during pregnancy we experience most rapid personal, spiritual growth? Sometimes the breakthrough will occur after (existential) crisis. I will recognise every part of transitioning as I have went beyond it twice. I will relate to pain, I will dive in without fear and show you me in most authentic way. Birth work is what I am meant to be doing; I will ‘serve’ from the place of zero expectation, responsibility ownership and trust.
Moving from maiden to mother is a transformation period in every life involved. Questions of all sorts arise. I am there to share my personal experience and seek for ancestral knowledge within together. Welcoming new life always brings us to our roots, because there is a subconscious program in every one of us. I believe in the importance of gentle transitioning. Nevertheless, it is that subconscious program, which is created and passed to the following generations.
