Livmoder [swe] : Womb [eng]

Liv: Life, Moder: Mother 

My name is Susannah Rickman. I am a Woman, Mother, Daughter, Sister, Body- & Birth Worker, Feminist & Creatress. My passion for Women's Health and Women's Rights is my fuel and inspiration. 

LivModer is my Creative Child. She was born from my desire to integrate my work and life in a meaningful way - to be inspired and challenged; to grow and transform alongside the women whom I have the honour to serve. 

It is my heartfelt wish that you will find something of value to you here. Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, or if you want to collaborate in some way. 

                                                                                                                                     

From My Heart & Womb to Yours.

 With Love, Susannah 

Some words about me

I grew up in Stockholm, but have lived in London for over a decade. I spent almost two years travelling, before I became pregnant in 2014 and decided to move back to Sweden. I love being immersed in nature, or in the company of friends and loved ones. Outside of running the LivModer Clinic and Project, I teach Embodied/Practical Anatomy at Stockholm University of the Arts (Doch). Some of my previous work includes teaching creative dance to children, choreographing and performing (contemporary dance) and leading exercise/movement classes in nursing homes around north London. One of my most memorable life-work experiences has been running a (volunteer) osteopathy clinic in a Nepalese mountain village in the Himalayas. I have spent most part of the last 5 winters in my second home in Brazil.
