About me

Welcome to Stralende Mama, nice of you to come and have a look on my website. My name is Alejandra Alarcón and I am originally from Chili. The Netherlands has been my home now for a very long time where I enjoy working and living with my family. I am a mother to two wonderful girls who have transformed me through my pregnancy and birth as a woman. It has been such a special, exciting, positive and wonderful experience to me. First of all the extremes our bodies can handle, the privilege of being pregnant and having a child. Because of these experiences and my never failing positive outlook I have decided to turn this into my work. What used to be just my passion has now become my mission to share with the world.


During my first pregnancy I received the news that I had become medical during my 34th week of pregnancy and I had to spend 3 weeks in the hospital. With this doctor’s orders bedrest I began to mentally and physically prepare myself for the birth. I soon realised I had to begin thinking, feeling and acting differently. Different from what the usual books and rules advise you to do. Different on a spiritual level. Different in many aspects, I drew upon instinct.


I applied a variation of ‘mind tools’ in order to prepare myself for the birth of my child. I found it all incredibly exciting. I was totally ready and I was looking forward to the experience immensely. Despite the fact that I would be induced into labour with 37 weeks I knew that I wanted to bring my daughter into this world in a natural way. I was even going to meet our little girl earlier than expected. I quickly let go of the disappointment of not being able to use the water birthing technique. I instead focussed on the fact that my daughter would be coming to meet us sooner than expected. I embraced the rest I was able to get in the hospital with both arms and learned to let go of what I couldn’t control, to have patience and to trust in my body and in nature.


This deep, spiritual and rich experience has elevated me to a new level. I pushed myself to new limits I never held myself possible. In my opinion everyone posseses this ‘female empowerment’. Sometimes it just needs a little help to reveal itself to the surface. For women to re discover her own strength with a self confidence in her own nature and in nature itself.

After a swift and natural birth my journey began and I found my calling in hypnobirthing.I teach this in three languages; English, Dutch & Spanish. A technique that by now I have been sharing for years with love and immense pleasure. I have also delved deeper into learning about the process and tradition of birthing. I am also a certified Doula, pregnancy and parent & child yoga teacher. I am also fascinated by the inner workings and the power of the mind. I am also an official MBR therapist. This in order to get to a deeper level and to help mothers and fathers over a longer period of time. I am also currently following a training in processing Trauma for babies and toddlers, so that I am also able to further understand and help this small target group. And to help parents understand why a child feels the way they feel after experiencing something like that.

A steady basis for all phases and for the entire family.


We women are made to create life. A given fact. But because of everything we hear, do , see and have experienced in this current world, I have found that many women have forgotten and become disconnected with this strength. Or they have forgotten how to apply it. I find a great joy in guiding these women to reconnect and have made this my mission.


So, keep a close eye on my website for more information on how to start our journey in guiding you and your partner! Lastly, to really treat these new parents I will be organizing retreats in 2023!


Warm regards,

Stralende Mama
