Breastfeeding & More is a practice dedicated to providing support for 'Breastfeeding & more' in and around the city of Utrecht.

On this page, we would like to briefly introduce ourselves and the various types of consultations that Borstvoeding & meer ("Breastfeeding & more) offers. Please feel free to contact us for more comprehensive information.

Meet Mirjam, the driving force behind Borstvoeding & meer.

Mirjam has over 10 years of experience as a midwife and became an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) in 2012. She is passionate about the unique nature of every pregnancy and mother-baby relationship, as each situation is special. Mirjam takes great pleasure in resolving complex breastfeeding situations and witnessing mothers and babies thrive in their own distinctive ways. She is also a certified baby massage and babywearing consultant.

As you can see from our page, we work as a team! Please meet my colleagues at "over ons".

At Borstvoeding & meer, we always strive to find solutions tailored to the family we are assisting: what's best for you all? We prefer to view challenges rather than problems, and through our experience, we've discovered a vast 'grey area' between breastfeeding and powdered milk.



So, when can Borstvoeding & meer be of help to you?

A Lactation Consultant is trained in supporting mothers and babies throughout the breastfeeding process, addressing a wide range of issues such as:

  • Mastitis
  • Excessive or insufficient milk supply
  • Inadequate growth
  • Latching or sucking difficulties
  • Unexplained pain
  • Breast surgery
  • Developing a plan prior to your baby's arrival

In addition, we are more than happy to assist families with the breastfeeding process, even when there are no pathological problems with the mother or baby. For example:

  • Comfortable breastfeeding techniques
  • Managing milk supply
  • Addressing insecurities (e.g., is the supply sufficient? Is this normal?)
  • Understanding your baby's rhythm and behavior
  • Transitioning back to work


We also welcome the opportunity to collaborate with your healthcare adviser, doctor, or maternity care practitioner (kraamzorg/midwife).

Prenatal Breastfeeding courses

Every month, we organize one-night breastfeeding courses for you (and your partner) to attend. Please check 'Masterclasses' for more information. These courses are all in Dutch. 

NEW: Our Masterclass breastfeeding is now also available in English! Click here to sign up. (link to  (on demand webinar, available for two weeks after payment).

You are very welcome to join us during your pregnancy, ideally with your partner. Knowing more about breastfeeding is crucial for a strong start as a family. Discover how the breastfeeding process works, how to prevent pain, and how to make breastfeeding enjoyable for both you and your baby.

This masterclass webinar is an extensive and wonderful introduction to breastfeeding. We want to share everything you need to ensure a successful start and explain how to maintain a pleasant and enjoyable breastfeeding experience. The webinar includes practical tips, clear visual examples, and hands-on practice.

Even after joining this comprehensive webinar, you might have one more question! Please email us your question, and we will ensure a prompt response.


There are several scenarios where you and your baby might require a powerful breast pump for additional support during the first few weeks after birth. We offer the Ardo Carum pump for rent during those instances. You can also purchase the Ardo Calypso pump from us. Additionally, we have baby scales for rent in case monitoring your baby's growth is necessary.


If you'd like to get out of the house, need some information or advice, want to try feeding in public, or just want to see other people, visit our Mama Café. You are very welcome to join us at Café Jozef, every 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month, between 11:00 and 12:30. One of us will always be there for you.
