And this despite the fact that my life was on a totally different path…
At that time I was studying Russian and Media Communications and had no ambitions whatsoever to work in the field of healthcare. But my interest in midwifery didn’t go away. I even started to go to congresses before I started my training to become a midwife. Today I have four children and a job that wholly and completely satisfies me.
I am a midwife in my heart and soul – and am still fascinated by the work of an independent midwife. I also really enjoy teaching at the University of Applied Sciences for Midwifery in Klagenfurt and being able to pass on my knowledge, my experience – and my love for the job. I find it extremely important that midwives get a good education. So that they understand what is happening during a birth. Not just with the head – but also with the heart.
Last but not least, I would like at this point to also mention my wonderful husband, the father of my children – without whom I would never have been able to carry out my work to this degree of intensity.
