Hello!

I’m Anna (she/her): a queer and non-binary person, parent, and doula.

For as long as I can remember, I have been interested in pregnancy, birth, and babies.  Over the past decade, that pursuit has taken me through fertility treatments, pregnancy, and birth, into parenting my own three children. In navigating the systems that surround each of these stages, I have found that the various procedures and practices are not what have stayed with me. Instead, I’ve been most impacted by the people in the room. 

Every person deserves access to affirming care, and to experience pregnancy, birth, and parenthood surrounded by people who celebrate their families and identities. While I welcome the opportunity to work with all birthing people and families, my work is grounded in anti-oppression and I particularly value connection to those marginalized within larger health systems. I am excited to work with you to cultivate not only a safe, but a welcoming environment as you bring your baby into the world.
