Soulful Midwife

Katrin Schulze

"For me, the time of pregnancy, birth and postpartum is a sacred, precious, unique phase in a woman's life.

At all times, women have been supported by midwives or elders in this time of the emergence, growth and birth of a new citizen of the earth."

What is Soulful  Midwifery?

8.png

A heartfelt welcome, I’m so happy you are here!

"Soulful Midwifery" is a type of care that sees you as a whole person and recognises that your birth experience is affected by all aspects of your being - soul, heart, body, mind and intuition.

The journey into parenthood is an adventurous one. My mission is to support you during this special time in your life in an empathic, holistic and evidence-based way. 

 

I provide care that is empowering, and respectful of your individual needs and choices. 

Advanced trainings in acupuncture, breastfeeding support, fertility massage, rebozo treatments and Mindfulness Based Childbirth and Parenting (MBCP) allow me to offer a broad range of services. In order to give you the best possible care, I am continually evolving and developing my skillset.

My approach is highly individualised and aimed at leading you and your partner (and other family members/friends) into self-empowerment through mental, physical and emotional strength

and balance.  

 

My service as a Midwife goes far beyond providing information. Working intuitively, I kindly offer Womb Blessings, Reiki and Shamanic Energy Medicine to my clients depending on their particular needs.

Throughout our journey, you will also learn the benefits of drinking 'ceremonial cacao' which - alongside it's tastiness - contains therapeutic properties highly beneficial in pregnancy, during birth and after the birth.

I am honoured to share my wisdom and experience of over 10 years throughout every step of our journey together. 

Let's begin 😀

Cacao & Parenthood

Pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period are not just a physical experience. The journey into motherhood is a profound and life-changing initiation in a woman's life - and equally, it is a huge change for her partner and whole family system.

Drinking Ceremonial Cacao is a delicious and healthy way to nourish yourself during this transformation. It is a powerful superfood that can help you and your partner connect with your unborn child on a deeper level. Cacao is a healthy treat and highly beneficial for your physical well-being.

I recommend Keith's Cacao due to its very low levels of caffeine, sustainable sourcing and highest product quality.

To learn more, please jump to Ceremonial Cacao and get in touch for more details.

 

A passionate midwife and committed Cacao Practicioner, I can't wait to dive deeper with you!

Fertility

Pregnancy can be a truly beautiful and magical moment in a person's life. However, Western Medicine lacks a holistic approach to fertility treatment and a 'Fertility Journey' can often be a challenging one.

 

 Western Medicine focuses on examining hormone levels and putting together an appropriate therapy, yet neglects other crucial factors imperative to a thorough approach such as mental and emotional health, lifestyle (nutrition, exercise, stress, sleep, smoking, exposure to environmental toxins), influences from the family system and more.

My holistic services of highly individualized treatment packages contribute can tremendously increase your chances of making your biggest wish come true.

Pregnancy

As a Midwife, I offer dedicated 1:1 care

from the beginning of your pregnancy until birth.

Some of my care includes but is not limited to providing self-care techniques for your wellbeing including recommendations to soothe pregnancy ailments, facilitating informed choice within maternity care and empowering you to become clear about your birth preferences alongside an introduction to the benefits of ceremonial cacao during pregnancy and beyond.

I also offer the supportive, healing services of
Reiki Healing & Shamanic Sessions.

Birth Preparation

As a Midwife, I am extremely passionate about mental, physical and emotional birth preparation.

 

Being prepared for birth can considerably influence your birth experience and therefore, education around what to expect is fundamental in empowering you, as a new Mother, to make informed choices and to bring your bundle into the world safely and softly.

Depending on your schedule and needs, I offer informative

Birth Preparation Workshops via Zoom (e.g. 2 x 2 hours on two different days or whatever serves you best).

Breastfeeding Support

Breastfeeding has a lot of advantages for both you and your new bundle of joy...

 

However, there are some tips, tricks and tools available to make the experience as easeful and beneficial as possible.

 

Therefore, I am happy to provide breastfeeding support before and after the birth to all of my midwifery clients.

 

It is a huge joy to empower you to contribute towards a successful and beautiful breastfeeding experience by preparing for it in the best possible way!

Postpartum Support

You just gave birth to your baby and you have birthed yourself as a mother. That's amazing!

 

This amazing, demanding journey into a completely new chapter of your life requires rest and time to get to know each other. I’m very passionate about providing personalised, nourishing and family-centred care after birth until eight weeks postpartum.

 

I will support you depending on your particular needs; eg: talking through physical symptoms after birth, emotional care, baby care advice, breastfeeding, relaxation techniques, birth debrief and more. Reiki sessions can be very helpful during this demanding time as well.

Rebozo Ceremony 

We only truly change through ceremony. Birth is a ceremony! By birthing your baby, you have entered a new, very exciting chapter in your life, you have become a mother!

 

After the birth, your body and energy field remains 'open' for some weeks. To help the muscles, the pelvic bones and the energy 'return' to you after opening up so much during birth - I offer a Rebozo Ceremony also called “Closing of the Bones” or “Cerrada” in Spanish."

 

This deeply healing, centering and sacred ritual brings you back to yourself which is extremely important for your journey through motherhood.

 

First, I’ll create a sacred space by cleansing the room with sage or incense before hearing how you are feeling and supporting you as I can. Your partner and baby will be present if you wish so. Thereafter, I’ll invite you to lay down on several colourful shawls and I’ll start rocking your body softly and rhythmically. This will be followed by an abdominal massage with a special oil before wrapping you firmly from head to toe. There will be time and space to let emotions flow and settle and finally, I will unwrap you and you will emerge anew... 

 

This traditional treatment can also be very helpful at other times in a woman’s life. For example to celebrate the first bleeding of a young woman (menarche), during pregnancy, for womb healing, menopause, after a miscarriage, stillbirth or termination of pregnancy.

Rebozo treatments are available on request.

Support after Loss

Miscarriage & Stillbirth

Miscarriage and stillbirth are some of the most intense experiences a human being can go through. During our time together, I will hold space for your grief, your sadness, your anger and whatever else may show up.

 

I will intuitively guide you through a process that will help you heal.

Reiki and Shamanic Energy Medicine treatments can be hugely helpful in these situations. 

 

Please do reach out. You are not alone in this. 

Support after Trauma & Termination

Many people experience traumatic events at some point in their lives. These events can influence the birth experience. Sadly, quite a number of women describe their birth experience as traumatic, and the termination of a pregnancy can be very intense, too. 

 

I offer highly effective ways to support you if you have experienced trauma that may impact your journey into motherhood.

 

Please do reach out.

You are not alone in this.

I promise to support you in an empathetic, respectful and caring way.
