Our vision is to offer pregnant women a familiar nest in nature by the lake, where they can be professionally accompanied and find the suitable space for their birth.
A team of midwives and doulas are going to found a place for birth where women and their families can stay/live for the time around the birth of their baby and for birth itself. Read more…

A team of midwives and doulas are going to found a place for birth where women and their families can stay/live for the time around the birth of their baby and for birth itself.
It will be a beautiful place in nature, 1 hour distance from Berlin. There will be small houses where the families can live during that special time of their life. It provides them the possibility to retreat from their (often stressful) everyday life, from city noise and action, and offers nature, time to connect with themselves and with the baby.
As there will be a birth center and midwives as well as doulas, the families can feel safe and looked after, and they don’t have to travel/drive to the birth place during birth, because they are already there. Which gives them time to tune in to their own natural birth rhythm without interruptions.
After birth they are welcome to stay for a couple of days or weeks, to really enjoy the first days with their newborn, welcoming and experiencing this very intimate phase in their own pace and peacefully, without distractions.
May children be born in a peaceful and loving atmosphere.
EO, Ada and Peter came together because they all have the same dream. We feel very connected to the place.
Peter brings in his midwife experience from different birthplaces.
EO adds her experiences as doula with births in different places and her great motivation to make childbirth pleasant, safe and self-determined at the same time – just appropriate!
Ada supports us with structure and ideas and Annie with inputs for fundraising activities.
Finally, Chiara advises on marketing and implementation.
We currently want to keep our team small to be able to agree and find solutions quickly and effectively. Of course we will need many more experts though.
Right now we are discussing about the best legal form for the Geburtsturlaub and planning the first building. If you have skills that you think might help us (e.g. legal knowledge, architect, building company…), please contact us!
Are you excited about this project as much as we are? Then support us! With your donation you enable us to start building the Geburtsurlaub – Birthing Center. As a thank you, you can take a few days off with us in Wandlitz, whether you are pregnant or not.
We have already found a suitable site for the project and with your donations you are helping us to reach the goal of € 30,000. We need this in order to have 250 sqm available for the first building: the birth house.
Further donations will be used for the property for family accommodation.
