I think it’s important that a pregnant woman and her partner feel comfortable during the ultrasound and can really enjoy such a special moment.
Niosha Porkalkaly graduated in 2013 from the MBRT (Medical Imaging and Radiotherapeutic Techniques), after which she has worked for 5 years in the radiology and nuclear medicine – mostly in the emergency room at Erasmus MC and VUmc. During her education and hospital-based work, she had always enjoyed making ultrasounds and in 2018, decided to make the switch to obstetrics. The switch from sometimes witnessing/working at the end of one’s life to witnessing beginning stages of new life. In 2019 she successfully completed the ultrasound in gynecology and obstetrics-training and as of late 2019 Niosha enjoys working at Femme Amsterdam. “The contact with the clients, being able to witness the wonder of new life in different stages every day and the rapidly developing techniques is what makes this work so enjoyable. I think it’s important that a pregnant woman and her partner feel comfortable during the ultrasound and can really enjoy such a special moment.”
