The fascination about pregnancy, birth and everything around it hit me still during my first studies of Social Anthropology and Education Sciences when I was traveling in the Global South (Latin America, East Africa, South East Asia).
Without that I could explain it really, I somehow received the call to become a midwife. It still took a while until I followed the call to study the most beautiful of all professions in Cambridge, UK. (In the meantime I worked in editorial management in the area Global Health and facilitated trainings for your people going for work experience abroad.)
That’s me. 😉

In England, midwifery is an academic subject, which influences my professional practice a great deal. You will hear the term “evidence-based practice" a lot when we meet during your pregnancy.
I combine this knowledge with the art of midwifery (German: "die Hebammenkunst") and a holistic approach to "becoming parents", including all the emotional, psychological, social and medical implications.
It’s not only the woman and her baby who I attend, but the whole family. (By the way, I don’t care how patchwork-y or queer this family is.)
Planning a home birth allows us to hold the balance between homely cosiness, the feeling of safety in your own environment, a holistic and mindful care approach to you and your family and an autonomous birth.
I am happy to attend you in any of the following languages:
