About Marilize Coetzee

Johannesburg North and West

A farm girl from a small town called Vryheid, now living the city life.  I grew up with 3 brothers and I have always been surrounded by children, I always knew I want to work with babies one day .  My journey started with Good Night when I had a 5month old baby who never slept longer than 40min (not even as a newborn).  Good Night has changed my life and I could not keep this to myself.  I felt a strong desire to share this with other families and here I am.  I have a passion for people and children and to have a direct impact on someones life fills my cup and provides me with the energy I need to be the best version of myself.  I truly live for the here and now
