About Sylvia

Hello and Servus, I have been born and raised in beautiful Germany where I concluded Steiner School for 13 years and then my midwifery training until 1999. Since then life has taken me around the world to work in New Zealand, Germany, Western Australia and now we are calling the Sunshine Coast our home. We have raised 2 beautiful daughters and recently have an "empty nest" at home exploring more freedom again.

 I am a very passionate and also experienced midwife, love to see women's bellies grow, support active and natural labour & birth (love waterbirths - 60% waterbirth rate and had a homewaterbirth myself) and help with the post birth breastfeeding experience. Happily 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. In order to become an "endorsed midwife" I have also concluded the pharmacology study in order to prescribe certain midwifery related medications (if required). I have also been one of the first midwives to gain admitting rights to Nambour/ Sunshine Coast University Hospital which means I can look after as a midwife your during labour and birth.

My passion is my profession- I love midwifery continuity of care looking after women up to 10 months or sometimes a couple of years if women are returning for more babies (my favourite). Sometimes I also help out in busy birthsuite and I love excercising to keep fit and healthy.

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 and enjoy going to lots of training courses. I became a IBCLC (lactation consultant) in 2016 and am expanding my knowledge in acuneedling/ TCM to support the harmony of our energy flow.

Please be assured, that I enjoy working with other midwives and am running a website including the different private midwives on the Sunshine Coast to give women an overview of their choices in private midwifery care: www.sunshinecoastprivatemidwives.com

I am looking forward to meeting you soonheart
