,You are a midwife:
You attend a birth.
Do good without talking about it...
If you have to intervene, do it,
but the mother has to control the birth.
Afterwards the mother will say:
We did it on our own!''


Dao De Jing 500 BC



Nature gave women the gift to put children into the world. Nature created the necessary physiological conditions for mothers and children to facilitate self-determined birth.

But it also requires courage and strength to give birth to a child. It is the first big challenge for a lifelong, special relationship between mother and child.

We want to accompany women when they make this important first step. We want to give every woman the security and confidence it takes to give birth to a child in a natural and self-determined manner.

In our daily work we bring together up-to-date medical knowledge and the traditional knowledge of a midwife, in order to be able to give mother and child the best support in every situation.

It has always been the task of a midwife to strengthen the awareness for the needs of a woman during the pregnancy, birth and the time of the childbed, in both partnership and society.

Natural societies know many ways of birth:
 
African women walk around as long as possible or lean against a tree.
 
Sudanese women hold on to a rope hanging down from the ceiling.
 
Native American women in Mexico crawl over a special bast-mat.
 
The Bagos of the Philippines practice a ritual called kistat. Herein, the midwife makes as much noise as possible to lure the baby out of the mother’s womb.
 
Women in Benin prove their strength and power of resistance by giving birth on their own.
