Postpartum Prep. and Recovery

Corinne Laan is a highly experienced practitioner in the fields of acupuncture, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), and grief support, with a specialised focus on women’s health. With an extensive career spanning over 30 years in the healthcare sector, Corinne’s professional journey began as a nurse in the South West of England, following her relocation from her native Mauritius to the United Kingdom during her teenage years.

Her early career trajectory led her to specialise in community public health nursing and maternal care, serving communities across England, Scotland, and later, supporting families of deployed soldiers with the British Forces in Germany. In 2005, Corinne moved to the Netherlands, where she expanded her services incorporating baby massage courses into her practice which she offered via ACCESS, before further diversifying into Traditional Chinese Medicine and coaching.

Today, Corinne’s practice Blissful Tao encompasses a broad spectrum of services aimed at empowering women, particularly mothers, on their journey towards optimal health and well-being. Through her workshops and personalised consultations, she provides invaluable guidance and support to expectant mothers, providing them with the knowledge and confidence needed to navigate the postpartum period with ease and confidence. Her workshop, “Beyond Birth – Everything you need to know for a smooth transition into motherhood,” offers practical insights and advice, fostering a sense of readiness and resilience among mothers-to-be.

In addition to her work in maternal health, Corinne also serves as a grief support companion, offering compassionate assistance to individuals navigating the complexities of loss and bereavement. This service is also extended to mothers who are pregnant after a miscarriage or infant loss as well as those who are trying to conceive and facing the silent grief of fertility challenges. Drawing upon her wealth of experience and expertise, she provides invaluable support and guidance to those in need, helping them navigate the grieving process with self-compassion and resilience. Her book The Art of Grieving – gentle self-care practices to heal a broken heart was published in 2022 by Rockpool Publishing Australia.
