Hulda specializes is continuous midwifery care during pregnancy, although most of her day is spent doing antenatal clinics and consultations for parents to prepare for birth and the baby. She runs pregnancy classes, cares for women in labour at home, and clinic and consultation in the office. Hulda also guides parents who are new to Hong Kong, or newly pregnant, about how best to go about their care and support whilst pregnant or as new parents.
Hulda works closely with families to ensure they have realistic expectations of the birthing process and life with a new baby. Her warm and practical approach has made her invaluable to many families in Hong Kong on their first, second or even third babies. Hulda's passion for natural birth is well known around town, but she also cares for parents with higher-risk pregnancies and births, coming from a background in Iceland where her mentors were specialists in making each birth a unique experience, regardless of circumstances.
Hulda has been a guest spot on RTHK where she gave advice to local parents. She works within private and public healthcare systems in HK and is a guest lecturer at the Hong Kong School of Midwifery in the Prince of Wales Hospital. In addition to this, she regularly attends and speaks at international conferences bringing the latest techniques and information back to Hong Kong for our benefit. She is a valued member of the Hong Kong obstetric network and recently was a speaker at Hong Kong´s FOCUS conference, amongst other midwives and obstetricians from around the world.
Hulda is the mother of four children, two of which were born in Hong Kong. Hulda has tried many different varieties of relaxation and pain management treatments, including medical and all-natural ones and has a very recent experience of going through labour and giving birth in the most natural and enjoyable way. "Having had the best possible support during my own births and experiencing first hand how important this is, I decided to become a midwife in 1998. Ever since then, it has been my passion to be of similar support to others".
Hulda loves croissants, cheese, coffee, chocolate and adventure races. She is also known for her cryptic text messages, and for making up english words which keep us on our toes.
