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.
