Hello and welcome to Time for Changes!
Here you can find reflections on leaving a nice corporate career behind and dedicating yourself to the family by becoming a wife and mother. Furthermore, you can follow the life changes in the pursuit for another passion: helping others through Coaching and Pilates. Finally, all of this is happening while living in a different country, culture and language – it has definitely been a fun adventure and it’s great to be able to share these changes with you.
The baby section has articles displayed in chronological order but otherwise feel free to navigate randomly through the different posts. They are spontaneous bursts of reflections and reactions along the journey, as different things were happening.
Thank you for being a part of this project, may you find it engaging and enjoyable.
Sometimes, it’s time for a career move. Sometimes, it’s time for more.
Here will be the place and time to share that move. Maybe it will move you too.

A lot of passion, sweat and tears this week. The highlight is, of course, getting positive results from the genetic screening of the baby! On top of it, we got to know a bit more about the baby: it’s a boy! I will be surrounded by men, and I couldn’t be happier about it.read more

We met our baby again! The three of us went to the doctor and had an ultrasound. We could see the baby, now much more prominent: you could clearly distinguish the head, the belly and even his spine. Or hers. Everything seems to be going well. Our baby, though, has been having a tough time napping again. The fighting is exhausting for both of us. What does he need?read more
