It's such an honor to be invited into a family's birth space! I am so grateful to the family's that offer me the opportunity to do the work I love.
Working with Anna is such a pleasure! We can't say enough good things about this woman. She is knowledgeable, accepting, supportive and everything you could possibly hope for in a doula. I felt completely safe and at ease with her by my side. She was the perfect balance of firm and soft when it came to both encouragement and physical techniques. She reminded me to eat and drink in a way that I never felt pestered but lovingly looked after. No matter what I requested to help with the pain she obliged happily. I was worried about being self conscious during labor but Anna was so kind, I never felt judged or insecure. Instead, I felt lifted up and empowered. My husband was grateful to have her there as well. I needed counter pressure with every contraction and with a 17 hour long labor it was nice to have someone to tag team and offer him support as well. We would recommend Anna to anyone and everyone. You will feel so supported and safe with her by your side. I truly believe having her at our birth was key to my being able to follow through with a natural unmedicated birth.
After all is said and done, we felt we had a new close friend, not just a doula. If you are looking for a doula who will honor, echo and support your wishes - Anna is your lady! –Danielle
