About Us

The Breastfeeding Centre Vita Nova was established in 2011 as an initiative by Tal Spanjer and Alexandra Knijnenburg. The aim was and remains to offer women and their partners anything they might need to make the breastfeeding period a fantastic, memorable period of their lives.

This could be through the purchase of practical aids and goods in our breastfeeding shop, or by gaining knowledge through our course centre, as well as through receiving assistance and answers to questions through our Lactation Consultancy or our Carrying System Consultant.

Alexandra Knijnenburg is a qualified Maternity Nurse and Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) with over 34 years of experience in offering guidance to parents and their babies.

Tal Spanjer has been a Carrying System Consultant since 2015 and offers both consultations and workshops on carrying your child.

Other members of our core team are Joëlle van Eijk who is our Course Centre coordinator and Alette Waall who is highly experienced in breastfeeding and carrying systems. They both offer regular assistance in our Breastfeeding Shop and are always happy to share their insights and experiences, so feel free to visit us at our centre for any questions you may have.
