Who am I?


My name is Salima Bours (’67), I am married and I have two beautiful sons. I am open to life and meditation and personal development helps me to stay present. I love to sing, dance, gardening and dress up people for parties!

On my second birth I let myself be assisted by an experienced friend; her presence as a Doula, who knew my wishes, helped me to relax and even enjoy the whole birthing process. Then I helped two friends in their labor process, which touched me deeply. Supporting the laboring woman and partner felt very natural to me and it seemed wonderful to me to work in this field.

So I did the training for Doula in Utrecht in 2007 and worked for 12 years with great satisfaction as a Doula. I decided to stop working as a Doula in 2019.

In 2012 I completed the HypnoBirthing® Training and I started giving HypnoBirthing® Courses with great enthusiasm. I also provide Pregnancy Coaching sessions, Relationship Coaching, Rebozo Closing Ceremonies and Postpartum workshops.

I am a member of the Professional Association HypnoBirthing® Netherlands, as well as the HypnoBirthing® Institute USA.

My method is warm, caring and intuitive.

Besides Dutch, I also speak English and German.
