Hi, my name is Johanna.

Before entering the birth world, I studied biology and finished my doctorate in biomedicine. Only years later, the birth of my second daughter changed my path dramatically and inspired me to become a birth doula.

My goal is to enable women, and families, to have the most gentle, nurtured and informed entry into parenthood as possible.

If you are looking for an English-speaking birth doula in Munich or would like some guidance while preparing for the birth of your child: Then you have come to the right place. I look forward to getting to know you and your story.

Supporting women and their families through pregnancy, birth and the fresh postpartum experience is what I do and what I love. For me the time around birth is very special, even sacred. I consider it a great honour if a family invites me to be part of their journey. Bringing a child into the world you are faced with unbelievable joy and happiness, but also with a lot of decisions. And sometimes obstacles. Especially if you are away from home. I can help you navigate through this adventure.

I don’t have a personal agenda for how you should give birth or parent. But I want you to get the choice and support you need to own your birth.

As a birth enthusiast, I passionately collect evidence-based research and best practice about birth in order to provide you with the best information possible to make the decisions that are best for you and your family.

Birth is a rite of passage for women. Their journey should be honored, their rights should be fiercely protected, and their stories should be shared. - Marcie Macari
