A Warm Welcome at the Birthkeeper's!

A birthkeeper for self-determined families


I am a trained midwife travelling the Earth, working as a birthkeeper, mostly online and by phone. Sometimes I also travel to homebirths. And I teach study circles for birthkeepers. (The circles are so far only in German language, though.)


I offer holistic counselling, guidance and support for self-determined, self-responsible women, couples and families throughout pregnancy, birth and the post partum period.


I am happy to help women and couples wishing for an unattended birth to help prepare for it. I can also be on call for them for telephone support and queries during the birth.


The tools that I employ to be of service to you is my training and experience of many years as a homebirth midwife, my vast knowledge in the field of holistic health, my connection to the Source-of-all-that-is, intuition, energy work, nutrition counselling, herbs, and mindful, conscious conversations.

On this website you will also find a blog with lots of useful information about childbearing, pregnancy, birth, family life and health, which I provide for free and which I expand continuously. Sharing knowledge is one of my passions, because knowledge is power and I am convinced that the power over yourself belongs to you.


If you are curious what I'm busy with at the moment, when I am not supporting pregnant women and families: I am working on becoming "villageable". That is a word I invented. It means that I am working to clear enough of my "stuff" in order to be able to realise my dream: A village where one can live, learn, laugh and simply be in a self-determined and self-responsible, joyful, loving, beloved, caring and cared-for way. A place that is good for all of us and especially for our children. A place where women and families can come to give birth and if they want, live there for a while before and afterwards. And a place for apprentice birthkeepers to learn. A place full of freedom, love and laughter.


Feel free to have a look around on this website and blog, to call or write.


I am looking forward to hearing from you!
