I am a mother and midwife and the founder of BORN IN BALANCE.
"My dream is that all women can experience a pleasant pregnancy and have a gentle and easy birth."
My way of specializing
My perspective on pregnancy and childbirth was shaped by international advanced training in the field of 'optimizing fetal position' and the 'influences of our time on pregnancy and childbirth'.
During my studies over 10 years ago, I already rarely gave myself any superficial explanations and always digging to find deeper answers to my questions. Through my three stays abroad, i.a. one year as a midwife in Tanzania, East Africa, I gained insight into pregnancy and childbirth work in other cultures and countries.
My own experiences during my pregnancy completed my professional knowledge with my personal experiences. Being pregnant myself I traveled to Lisbon, Portugal and to The Hague, Netherlands, to specialize in the field of body-active birth preparation.
Spinning Babies® Certified Parent Educator
As the first and only midwife in Germany, I was trained as a Spinning Babies® Certified Parent Educator and have the license to teach the 'Parent Class' exclusively in Germany.
The knowledge gained from this has revolutionized all areas of my midwife activity and transformed my knowledge of pregnancy and birth.
