About me

Happily married since 2003, I am a mother of two beautiful children, who were born in 2004 and 2013 respectively, with the support of a wonderful midwife who rather acted as a doula to me.

My own experiences as a pregnant, birthing and breastfeeding mom were so amazing, that they inspired me in turn to support other mothers in the course of their journeys through the birth cycle. My passion for this work as a doula is therefore driven by the feeling and hope that all pregnant women should be able to widen their choice of support beyond the strictures of core family and medical practice to a place that can offer emotional support that is also neutral, non-judgemental and independent of the commercial drivers of the child birth industry, should they seek it.

 I offer coverage throughout Central Switzerland, Aargau and Zurich. And beyond the birth phase, I also offer postpartum support, home visits and more besides.

I act according to the ethics code of Doula CH and am bound by confidentiality.

The film "der tägliche Beweis für Grossartigkeit" (partly in english) is a documentary film of two film production students, which shows the birth of Phoebe Storm. I had the honor to support this family as her doula.
