Welcome to the magic of being a mom!
The unexpected turns that my life has repeatedly taken as a mother of four children, a midwife working online abroad and now at the side of my Turkish husband have shown me that life cannot be planned.
But even if everything turns out differently than expected, there is one person we always have an influence on - ourselves!
No matter how hard the pressure of expectations from our surroundings and how hurtful the disappointments of our fellow human beings, we are always able to shape our lives according to our knowledge, our experiences, wishes and dreams.
And this is how I support you as a woman and a mother from the bottom of my heart!
When I was five years old, two special events coincided. My little sister was born and the sister of my best friend became a midwife. My fascination with pregnancy and childbirth was awakened and I knew exactly what job I would learn one day.
At the age of 16 I was finally old enough to do internships in the delivery room and used my school holidays to be very close to women giving birth and their babies until, after graduating from high school and a year as an AuPair in Paris, I was finally allowed to attend the midwifery school in the south of Germany.
I am now almost 36 years old, have had four children myself
and still cannot imagine a more fascinating profession.
Two outpatient hospital births with my son and my eldest daughter in southern Germany, an unassisted sea birth in Thailand with my second daughter and an unassisted birth in Cyprus with my youngest daughter have taught me that every child is incredibly sensitive and shows its own character during birth.
I believe that every baby teaches us mums from the very beginning that unpredictability, ambivalence, love, pain and fate can perhaps push us far beyond the limits of our perceived resilience, but that these processes, like birth waves, are never against us, but rather working with and for us and helping us from the depths to grow beyond ourselves over and over again.
Good and bad experiences make us the women we are today and it is our choice whether we let trauma, manipulation and pressure make us small in the long term or whether we use all knowledge to unleash our power and femininity in loving and trusting ourselves.
Dare to be yourself!
As a woman and as a mom(to be)!
Strenght does not come from physical capacity
it comes from an indomitable will.
