I graduated as a midwife from the Copenhagen School of Midwifery in January 2014. In 2017, I trained to become a certified lactation consultant (IBCLC) with the international institution IBLCE (International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners). The exam requires at least 90 hours of breastfeeding-specific education, and in addition over 1000 hours of breastfeeding-specific clinical experience. I have been running ammevejledning.dk since 2017.
After graduating from midwifery school in 2014, I travelled to Norway, where I worked at Kristiansund Hospital for just under a year. I then went to England, where I worked for two years in two different hospitals in London. After returning to Denmark I worked 4 years at Rigshospitalet, where I continued to work on my experience with complicated births, held consultations with pregnant women and attended births at both the labour ward and the birthing centre. I have worked in the antenatal ward, labour ward, a birthing clinic and also with home births. I have also taught antenatal calsses and breastfeeding classes in both Danish and English. I make it a priority to keep up to date with the latest knowledge in my field and I am a board member of DACLC, an association for certified lactation consultants (IBCLC).
In the summer of 2020, I joined Sjællands Universitetshospital. I prioritize a connection to maternity and birth settings, so that I stay experienced with and up to date with the latest knowledge and have my “finger on the pulse”.
I live with Jack and my two children, Tilde and Frida, born in spring 2018 and autumn 2019.
I speak the Scandinavian languages and English fluently.
