From Overwhelm to Joy -

My Transformational Motherhood Journey


I have four children of my own, and I know the different stages of birth. I experienced the challenges and joys of (early) motherhood from both a personal inside view as well as from a more objective outside perspective from my professional work accompanying women and their families through this time. I experienced the incredible power and effect it had on my physical well-being when I learned to regulate my nervous system, release stress and tension, speak my truth, free myself from external expectations, and start to trust my inner guidance.

At 41 years of age with 4 children (the youngest of which was only born a year ago), I find myself with thriving health, more energy, and inspiration than ever before. I remember days of the past waking up already exhausted, trying to pull through the day, waiting for my children to go to bed to find rest again for myself finally.

Ten years earlier, pregnant with my 3rd child, I recall bursting into tears at a mountain of dirty dishes, unable to gather the energy or mental fortitude to wash them. In the postpartum, my energy seemed to disappear even more, my immune system was low, and I was constantly fighting any flu or cold. Having so little energy made it very hard to be the joyful, patient, and calm mother I wanted to be for our children. I often lost my patience when my kids didn’t listen to me or made a creative mess in our home when I had just cleaned up.

My marriage was in a tough place as well. My husband and I struggled financially as well as emotionally. We were constantly at odds and could not understand each other or connect deeply.

Applying the same strategies I used for creating beautiful & self directed birth experiences, listening to my inner wisdom and following Gods guidance lead me to creating a life that I love and for which I am daily grateful for.

Simple and effective tools helped my husband and me communicate better and create through this a constantly deeper growing love with and for each.

My motherhood is filled with joy, ease, calm and connection with my children and allows us to enjoy our life daily together.

When there is struggles we have the tools to work through them and create more closeness instead of disconnection.




From the Mountains of Oaxaca
to Motherhood in Puerto Escondido Mexico


I grew up in Germany and moved to the Mexican coastal town of Puerto Escondido in 2006. I was 24 years old when I fell in love with the man with whom I have 4 children today. I got pregnant the year after we met and gave birth to my first child in September 2008 on a ranch in the middle of the mountains of Oaxaca, 3000 meters above sea level, in a small hut supported by an incredible midwife. There was no electricity; my husband made a fire for us each night. Trusting my capacity to birth, chose to give birth to my son in such a remote area, far from modern society because I knew that it was the place where I would be heard, seen, supported, and respected throughout the whole journey. By following my intuition and listening to what my body and baby needed on this journey I was able to give birth to an 11-pound baby after 36 hours of labor.

Being in such a remote place was perfect for the transition into being a family during the postpartum when the birth of the mother and father truly takes place. For the births of our other three children, we chose our home in Puerto Escondido as the place that felt best to give birth to our growing family.

I don't believe there's one right place or a way to give birth to your baby, but there is always a place for your situation and for the current moment in your life, which is the best place to embark on this journey.

It would be my privilege to provide my support to you in your motherhood journey and empower you with the tools that have helped me transform struggles and hardship into abundance and beauty.

Motherhood, same as a long-term relationship, is a humbling journey that brings us to our most vulnerable places and our greatest strengths. It's a journey full of transitions and transformations into who you are.

We all need a community of honest, genuinely supportive sisterhood around us. To raise a child we need a village and are not supposed to do it alone. My offer to you is a place where you find the safety to be who you are and be supported in what is best for you and your situation. You will not only receive but also implement simple tools that will help you create a life of fullness and success in all areas.
