My name is Simona Pickhardt and I am a mother of three gorgeous children. I was born in 1976 in Iasi, Romania and I live since 2009 with my lovely family in Hamburg, Germany. I speak Romanian, English and German. I have a background in journalism and sales, but my last pregnancy and birth were life changing. I had a healing birth experience using Hypnobabies®, which inspired me to become a Hypnobabies Instructor and a doula myself.
I am a certified Hypnobabies® Childbirth Hypnosis Instructor and a Birth Doula in Hamburg (training by Melanie Schöne in collaboration with Doulas in Deutschland e.V. and Debra Pascali-Bonaro on behalf of DONA International).
Together with being a busy mom/wife and the birth work, I was absolving in 2018 a three-year training as a naturopath (Heilpraktikerin) at Arcana-Heilpraktikerschule. In January 2019 I've obtained my practising licence from the BGV Hamburg (Behörde für Gesundheit und Verbraucherschutz).
I believe that healthy women have healthier pregnancies, easier births and healthier babies. That is why, I want to support women in all aspects of their maternity experience.
Further qualifications: Craniosacral Therapy, Classical Massage, Foot Reflex Zone Massage, Ear Acupuncture after Nogier, Classical Homeopathy, Bach Flower Remedies, Rebozo Massage, Therapeutische Frauen Massage® , Aromatherapy, , Becoming Dad Certified, Spinning Babies® Workshops.
Coming up in 2019: Traditional Chinese Medicine Training with focus on Acupuncture.
