Gerda is a trained music teacher who discovered her love for children while teaching individuals and classes the joys of music. After marrying Louwrens, a pastor with a heart for the world, their life as a young family became one of being constantly on the move. During their years at a training college she specialised in children’s ministry, early childhood development and the training of Sunday school teachers and parents. Their journeys took them across the continent of Africa until they eventually spent a significant portion of their years in ministry serving an ex-patriate community in a Muslim country. After returning to South Africa her focus changed to the specialised care of women during pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum. As a certified doula (servant of women) and postpartum care provider she has guided many young families as they adjust to this new and special season of their lives.
Having raised three children in different cross-cultural settings and recently journeying with her married kids through becoming parents themselves, gave her a wealth of knowledge and experience from which other parents can benefit on their own journey.
She is passionate about living an authentic life and finding ways for the body, mind and soul to be restored to wholeness. Her conviction is that parents can create safe spaces for their children to experience these values as they grow up, fully becoming what they have been created to be.
