Registered Nurse Midwife


I graduated from the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm as a registered nurse midwife, RNM, in 2005. Prior to becoming a midwife, I worked as a nurse in a neonatal care unit.

I have worked many years in different delivery clinics located in Stockholm, supporting women through labour & birth and during the early post-partum period. Since 2016 I have been a full-time health care entrepreneur and co-owner of Babygruppen, a company that provides high quality birth preparation classes in Sweden. In addition to this I am also a prenatal yoga instructor and have a degree as a sommelier – expert in wine.


For me being a midwife is to advocate for women’s rights and part of that is our right to have a secure and positive birth experience. I am passionate about helping women during pregnancy with increasing their knowledge so that they dare to trust the body and the process during birth and in doing so are able to find their own unique superpower.
