Each beginning bears a special magic - (Hermann Hesse)
About Sylvia

Hello and Servus, I was born and raised in beautiful Germany where I concluded Steiner School for 13 years and then my midwifery training in 1999. Since then life has taken me around the world to New Zealand, back to Germany and then to Western Australia where I was practicing as midwife in employed and private settings. Both my girls were born in Perth with a midwife and I enjoyed midwifery continuity of care. We shifted to QLD early 2013 to be in my hubby's "home environment".

Well, I can honestly say that I am a very passionate and also experienced midwife, my favorite is to see women's bellies grow, support active and natural labour & birth (love waterbirths) and help with the post birth breastfeeding experience. I have been one of the first private midwives to get a Medicare Provider Number in Australia in 2013, which allows a Medicare Rebate for my midwifery services and have also concluded the pharmacology study so I can prescribe certain midwifery related medications (if required)-this is called "endorsed midwife".

Learning never ends- very often I am learning from women and their intuitions but I also keep reading about all the new ideas and reasearch- my personl midwifery news are that I have qualified as lacation consultant.

Please be assured, that I enjoy working with a team of midwives- I have started a website about all the different private midwives on the Sunshine Coast to give women an overview of their choices in private midwifery care: www.sunshinecoastprivatemidwives.com

Also, I am happy to say to have gained admitting rights to the new Sunshine Coast university hospital (previously in Nambour hospital since 2014) and I also work in collaboration with a private obstetrician, should you choose to have your baby in Buderim private hospital.

I am looking forward to meeting you soonheart
