|I was born in Jena, Germany, in 1970.
After completing my schooling, I went on to graduate from technical school in 1990 as a child- care worker. Afterwards I worked in various child-care facilities, and then dedicated myself to needy and care-dependent people for a number of years. In 1998 my son Joel was born at home.
Three years later I fulfilled a longterm dream by completing my training as a midwife. From the start I considered
it of utmost importance to provide the
mother-to-be with continual, personal care,
starting with the pregnancy, encompassing the birth, and including the post-partum follow-up. To this end I worked as a delivery nurse in the ›Krankenhaus Am Urban‹ (Urban Hospital) directly after graduation.
Before long I was able to fulfil another dream: in 2004 I went to work for a year in the Carribbean. On Trinidad und Tobago I gathered invaluable experience as a midwife in the Mount Hope Hospital.
