We have been unable to find an experienced German-speaking home birth midwife to take Sabine von Toerne's place and steer the ship in her absence. We therefore had to cease our services literally overnight as of 12/07/2019 and have been unable to care for our existing clients since that date. For complex reasons beyond our control a coordinated hand over of care to other independent midwives and maternity care providers, as outlined contractually, was not possible in all cases. Thankfully all clients were able to use alternative midwifery care. No woman or family were left without a midwife.
Previous clients who believe they are due refunds as a result of this sudden and unexpected situation in July 2019, please get in touch. We are hoping to find a solution to unresolved matters which is agreeable to all involved.

'Birth Matters... It matters because it is the way we all begin our lives outside of our source, our mother's bodies. It's the means from which we enter and feel our first impression of the wider world. For each mother, it is an event that shakes and shapes her to her innermost core.'
Ina May Gaskin
'Respecting the woman as an important and valuable human being and making certain that the woman's experience while giving birth is fulfilling and empowering is not just a nice extra, it is absolutely essential as it makes the woman strong and therefore makes society strong.'
'Experience of the phenomenal capacity of our birthing body can give us an enduring sense of our own power as women. Birth is the beginning of life; the beginning of mothering, and of fathering. We all deserve a good beginning.'
Sarah J. Buckley
