Power of Intuition
When her newborn daughter Charlotte was diagnosed with a rare and deadly leukemia, Pia and her husband Robbert made a momentous decision: they rejected potentially devastating chemotherapy and instead chose to “wait for what will come.”

As the following year unfolded, Pia entered a disorienting world of doctors, medical procedures, and a colorful cast of neighbors and protectors in her native Amsterdam. Her seventeenth-century canal house became her inner sanctum, a private “cocoon” where she swept away distractions in order to give Charlotte the unfiltered love and strength she needed.

Pia’s instinctive decision, now known as “watchful waiting,” has become another viable medical option in many cases like Charlotte’s.

Listen as Pia joins hosts Andrea and Lisa to share why she chose to follow her intuition and the amazing result that occurred. She also speaks about how you can learn to recognize and follow your intuition.
