Hello, I’m Awital.

Expert in mental birth preparation and
inspirator for joyful birth experiences

I help you find more delight and ease
during pregnancy, birth, postpartum and every day mom life.

I’m the proud mother of four wonderful, exhausting, loud, sweet, tedious, warm-hearted, challenging and sensitive children. And if I can handle this with joy, lightness and laughter in everyday life, than you can too!

If I can do it , than you can do it 10x better.


Because you’re incredible!


My motto has always been “One day at a time” – meaning “one thing after the other”. Because of this, everything works with a smile. All you need is the right mindset, a great network of women who lift each other up and very importantly, self-confidence and appreciation.

Always keep in mind – would you speak to your best friend the way you speak to yourself? Sometimes, we’re our best critics. Try not to be so hard on yourself though. It makes life a lot easier and more pleasant.

My Journey

As a teenager, I suffered from anxiety. I had slight panic attacks and had to learn to accept, deal with and navigate them. At that time, I was about 14 and decided not to take any medication. I didn’t feel sick so why take meds? A drug seemed like a patch to calm down the situation. It wasn’t the cure. I wanted to know why I had panic attacks. So, I went on a journey with a therapist when I was very young. A voice told me that my subconscious had a message for me. Even then, I tried to understand the interaction between mind, body and soul. And it fascinated me. I learned to control my thoughts and to treat myself well. I also learned that fear starts in the head.

When I got pregnant for the first time in 2006, my anxiety quickly returned again. I started looking for something that would take away my fear of childbirth. I was looking for something that could give me confidence in myself and in my body. At the time, I was living in the United States and was a little shocked to find out how much medication was prescribed and how many surgeries were conducted for births there. Less than 2% of mothers gave birth at home, one in three births was a caesarean section and midwives were rarely on-site during birth. I found that very strange.


Based on my studies and experience in the dance and movement sciences, I was convinced that there is a positive connection between a person’s mind, body and soul. I believed that there must be better alternatives for childbirth. In the search for a natural and gentle alternative to classic birth practices, I discovered Hypnobirthing. 

At first it sounded very strange to me. Since I suffered from an anxiety disorder as a teenager, the idea of being “hypnotized and without control” scared me. But as I looked at it more closely, I realized that hypnosis (Hypnobirthing) was the opposite of “being out of control”. It was exactly what I needed!

Thanks to the Hypnobirthing techniques I learned, I experienced four amazingly beautiful, powerful and painless births. The most incredible moments in my life.

The truth is that birth is a completely natural process – both for animals and for us humans.

Unfortunately, this is not seen like that in our society. We learn very early on that a birth is a difficult and painful process. We hear about the many hours of painful labor and that we should dread and fear it. The births are often painful, but mostly because we expect them to be.

Based on my own birth experience, I completed my training as a Hypnobirthing practitioner, hypnotherapist and also as a doula. However, in my opinion, the most important qualification is that of being a mother of four wonderful children. As a mother, I fully understand what it means to want the best for your own child right from the start.

Being a mother changed me a lot. It gave me strength and allowed me to believe in myself. I was very lucky to be able to give birth to four children in three different countries – two of whom were homebirths, one in a birthing center and one in a hospital. Four different experiences and each time, Hypnobirthing, mental birth preparation and hypnosis were at the heart of my birthing process. It helped me to feel safe, relaxed and emotionally in control.


Awital, how did you do all that?

It’s not difficult to answer this question. I don’t see myself as an above-average woman with super powers. I’m just a normal mother who has managed to connect with her body and discovered that it is possible to give birth naturally if you give your mind enough space and believe in yourself.

I’m convinced that you also have all of these qualities inside of you. All you need are:


Strong will


Willingness to invest time (commitment)

The heartfelt wish to experience a positive birth

Courage to leave your comfort zone

Honesty – toward yourself and your family

The ability to communicate clearly

A great thirst for knowledge about birth – the will to read, research and learn

The Ingredients

You may now be wondering how to do it yourself and how to start. Or maybe you‘re not sure if you’re ready for it or can really do it?

Just say “Yes!” to yourself! Of course you can do it! I believe in you and you are amazing! Decide on YOUR path, make your wishes come true and plan your OWN birth experience.

I’m happy to accompany you along your path and show you how beautiful and great your new experiences that are open to you will be.
