A little more about me
Hi, my name is Marit, and I am the owner of this web site.
I was born and raised in Holland where I studied and worked as, a maternity nurse. I have always taken much pleasure in being a nurse. Giving birth is the most wonderful experience in a woman's life.
I enjoyed helping women during labour, caring for their newborns during the first days of their life in hospital and providing support with breastfeeding difficulties and common postpartum health issues.
I worked there for several years but then on one summer holiday in Greece I met my husband. Head over heals in love and I made a big step and moved to Greece. We got married and had two lovely children.
My husband and his family ran a small hotel and I started working in the family business. Greece is a beautiful country. Especially the part we live in, Lefkada, an Island in the Ionian Sea. Our hotel has a fantastic location; it is situated right on the edge of the beach.
The whole family is working long hours in the summer months. On the other hand, during the long dreary winter months the place seems deserted. With the current economic crisis, it is very difficult to pass those winter months, without work and a steady income.
A few years ago my husband and I separated, which made it for me financially more difficult. I needed desperately to find a way to make some extra money.
Then I found a great site of a mom that turned her passion and hobby into a money making website.
And that is when I started Baby Safety Concerns.com hoping with my experience as a nurse and as a mother to help other moms with safety issues and common illnesess that they all have to face at some point.
So feel free to send me a message. If I can, I will gladly help you with a problem. We also appreciate any photos of problematic skin rashes we can share with our readers.
