Mission and Values


Anna the Doula exists to provide companionship, guidance, and encouragement to birthing people and their families before, during, and after birth.


  • Hold Space: I will show up with empathy and compassion. I will not judge you or your choices. I accept you as who you are and how you are.

  • Communication: I value open and clear communication with you. I also nurture you to learn and practice clear communication with your medical care team.

  • Education: I continuously seek out educational opportunities for myself. I also aim to provide you with knowledge to make your own informed decisions regarding your birth.

  • Access: I believe all families should have access to a doula.

  • Community: I will continuously build connections with birth related professionals in STL.
