I was born in Berlin in 1970. After my "Abitur" (german highschool diploma) I went to the USA as an Aupair. I completed my midwife training here in Berlin at the Charité hospital, since 1998 I work as an self-employed midwife and take care of women during pregnancy and after birth. From 2001 to 2010 I also worked as a "Beleghebamme" (midwife with hospital affiliation, taking care of women also during birth) at the Westend hospital. In 2015 I finished the advanced training to become a "Familienhebamme", which is a midwife especially for the need and problems of risk groups and also work as such since then. I have a son (*2010) and a daughter (*2012). Since 2016 I offer english antenatal classes at the Hebammenpraxis Prenzlauer Berg (former Hebammenpraxis am Mauerpark).
