Every child is like a seed


About the research

In Belgium, 1 in 7 children is born into a disadvantaged family. Together with her colleagues at the Artevelde University College Kaat Helsloot developed a care path to offer vulnerable children and their mothers extra support. In this way, they want to offer every child opportunities to grow into a balanced adult. 

Research supported by the Mustela-foundation. 

Kaat Helsloot

With positivity and strength you will come a long way. That's the life motive of Kaat Helsloot. From that passion she coached mothers as midwives at the birth of their child. She saw opportunities for growth, continued her studies and curiously took her first steps into the world of research. Central to her work is quality of care. That is why she drew the outlines of the care that midwives offer and supported the Flemish midwife in her work. For vulnerable mothers she contributed to a buddy network and developed quality indicators that form the basis for better care.
