TEAM

We have some amazing women contributing to bring Motherheart into the world and supporting us from their hearts in different ways. Co-creation is a fundamental part of Motherheart. All that starts from within is reflected in the external visible world. Where would we be without them? This is our fabulous Motherheart team:

Asha Hossain

Founder & Curator of Motherheart, Yoga Teacher and Truth Enthusiast

Asha curates a safe and sacred space for mothers by listening and acting from her Motherheart. Her background in recruitment and coaching and her profession as a yoga teacher taught her to empathize and connect in a truthful way. Holding space and bring that fertile ground to co-creation, sharing knowledge, educating & encouraging others is what she loves to do. It’s a wonderful practice into “not always doing but sometimes letting go and trusting the process”.

Asha is a mother of a gorgeous 2-year-old daughter and that role has given her the space to put all she has learnt in the past years into real life practice. It feels like motherhood has thrown her into a deep blue, beautiful but wild ocean and now she is finally learning how to swim.

If she could share something with the world it would be: You are exactly where you need to be!

Nadia Scherpenhuijzen

Project Manager, Online Marketing Specialist & Doula

Nadia contributes to Motherheart by raising awareness about this new born creation as a project manager and through online marketing.

She has been working in this field for many years and during her pregnancy everything she has been practicing (holistic health, yoga, ayurveda) suddenly made sense and she decided to become a doula.

Her mission is to guide women through a more conscious pregnancy and birth. She empowers women and look after the emotional well-being of mama and her family and provides unobtrusive, compassionate, and experienced support throughout labor. With such help, parents can capture the special moments and priceless experience of their own unique childbirth.

She is addicted to mother circles, probably because it has so many similarities with a birth room. It’s intimate, you are invited to set emotions free and you can truly be yourself. It’s magical.

If she could share a message with the world it would be: giving birth should be your greatest achievement, not your biggest fear. Follow your own path, listen to your mama-intuition and carefully select the people in your birth team.

Sophie Brokman

Healer, Massage Therapist, Content Creator and Passionate Connector

“Live your life from the heart in authenticity and make truthful choices that serve you and therefore others”

Sophie contributes to Motherheart in the creation of all related to (editing) content.

Although she is not yet a mother herself, she has felt from a young age that she is here on earth to give birth to new life. Motherheart inspires her by the beautiful women participating and the message we want to bring across. It is time for conscious mothering by creating connection, vulnerability and sharing knowledge, experiences and being together as women. Sophie is grateful for all wisdom that is shared through Motherheart, and it is definitely her big wish to put all these beautiful teachings into real life practice one day.

If she could share a message with the world it would be: be kind to yourself, embrace your own unique beauty, and become softer to enable yourself to truly know which direction life is inviting you to move. Remember: don’t forget to smile and take yourself too seriously; we are here to experience joy and light : )

Wendy Symons

Family Life Photographer and Mother

Wendy contributes to Motherheart as resident photographer. She just can’t describe how much she loves to photograph mothers and their children, to capture the love and bonding between them.

Wendy is mother of a two-year-old son. Every day she shows him daily life and the world in the most loving and patience way. He shows me the world through his child’s eyes. We learn from each other. Wendy is proud to be part of this beautiful community where mothers can learn, lean, share and support one and other.

If she could share something with the world it would be: think about our planet and every living creature on it. It is just so simple… be kind and helpful. Such a nice gift and it is for free;) You will get a lot of love in return most of the time!

Jenna Simons

Marketing Specialist, Prenatal Yoga Teacher and Happy Ninja

With a strong experience in marketing, Jenna is a PR marketing & activities specialist as well as a Birth light prenatal yoga teacher.
Her contribution to Motherheart is that she will use her skills to give Motherheart (online) exposure as well as help launch soon to be released online programs.

Jenna is a firm believer of motherhood in the broadest sense. Through teaching prenatal yoga, she has witnessed women from all walks of life, get in tune with their ever changing bodies while carrying the  primal knowledge within each and every one of them.

“Being able to tap in to that gives more willingness to understand that we as (potential) mothers hold such an important role in the world.”

The one message Jenna would like to share with the world is to have faith in the universe and yourself. Once you have truly mastered that feeling, you can flow with all that life gives you.

Marthe Naber Heuer

Film, Video Concepting & Director

“dream big”

Whatever she does, Marthe does from the heart. After taking several yoga lessons with founder Asha, Marthe expressed her dream of creating online yoga videos. Luckily Asha shared that same dream and the idea to work together was born.

Creating and editing the video content for Motherheart feels like a dream come true for Marthe: “yoga and film both make my heart beat faster”. The one lesson that she would like to share with the world is “to dream big and listen to your motherheart”.

As a freelance filmmaker and presenter and founder of Mart Media Monster, Marthe creates documentaries, online content and emotional commercials. In this day and age where everyone is sharing content online, she inspires clients with creative concepts and guides them through to the online edits. This results in unique videos for target audiences. “Don’t be afraid to film yourself!”

Fatima Fazli – Vermeulen

Writer, researcher, translator & editor.

Graduated with a degree in child-psychology & early-childhood education, and a mother of 4, Fatima was always been fascinated with the emotional & social development of a child. This interest has since spread to the transition that occurs when a woman becomes a mother.

After having her third son, she decided to quit her corporate career and has since made it her mission to translate with the same emotion the author experienced when writing the words, and with it spread the message. Language has no barrier if translated correctly.

Fatima contributes to Motherheart by “translating and editing the work of extraordinary women as well as creating content for this valuable platform.”

With it, she hopes that (new) moms will realize that their transition and journey through motherhood doesn’t have to be a lonely one.

The one message that she would have liked to tell her younger self and of which she is reminded today, is to trust the capacity of your being. “Everyone has a purpose on this planet, and no matter how big or insignificant your’s may seem, know that you (and the work you do) are making a difference to someone or another.”
