+ Event Details
I'm a Mother of 3 and Nana to 4, in November it will be 5 grandsons. I've lived in the NRV for over 30 years. I enjoy reading to continue my growth in clean eating, yoga, spirituality and childbirth. I've been in the Birth World for 25+ years, I love the very essence of birth; everything about birth, from the majestic formation of life to the smell of a newborn baby. I advocate with various groups for safer births and cesarean section reduction. I believe Mother's can birth uninterrupted, natural, instinctual and that birth can be calm, gentle and safe.
My experiences range from:
I will take the time to get to know you and we will develop an individualized plan that fits your specific needs. I offer the emotional and physical supports.

“I am so grateful for Anna. The tenderness and care she gave to me during my pregnancy and my experience of having my first born was exceptional! She made me feel confident that my body as a woman can naturally and magnificently give birth to my son, on it's own, without all the extra additives, making me feel secure and ready. Thank you for all the knowledge and support. I don't know how I would have handled it without you Anna!"
“Anna (Ree) was with me for the first two of my births. She was so supportive and an amazing Doula. During my first birth; my Midwife was stuck in traffic and we were waiting on the OB on call. The nurses were telling me to stop pushing; but my body was telling me different, doing what it wanted. Within seconds, the nurse and Anna (Ree) was placing Nyrai on my chest. It was truly amazing! No tears either! My second daughter's Labor went quicker. Ree was there supporting me, breathing with me, getting me to change positions and reminding my baby's father to breathe with me, massage my shoulders and back. I'm so glad that she was there for my births! She taught us so much and was great help!”
“My experience with Anna (Ree) as my doula was more than a blessing!! Words can not explain how amazing she was, I’ve never had someone go out of their way, to make sure my birth was what I expected and more. Even after I had my daughter she continued to help me with my journey into motherhood, it takes a special and talented person to encourage and help a young mother give birth naturally and allow her to be so in tune with her body that she is able to know when and when not to push, causing me to not need any additional assistance. Not only was Anna (Ree) my doula but she was also my advocate with nurses and doctors and made sure they stuck to my birth plan!! I’ve never knew giving birth was going to be such an amazing experience, and without her I don’t think it would of been something I could of handled! I can not wait until it’s my time to have another child so I can work with her again! Even 5 months later she still checks on me to see how I am people like her only come once in a lifetime and I highly recommend her services to anyone that ask!!!."
