About me

Some call me Anna, some call me Ree; either I’m great with. I’ve been doing birthwork for 30+ years now; previously I was mostly called a birth coach, before I certified as a Doula in 2013. I’ve always loved birth. In 2017 I was fortunate enough to take the HypnoBirthing®️ Childbirth Educator course. I continue research, education and searching for, how best to help ALL birthing people in my area. Birthing is a sacred event. It’s not to be rushed or forced to achieve the best outcome and desires of parents. I am accepting parents who want a Birth and /or Postpartum Doula currently for the 2022 Winter quarter. I attend hospital births, birthing centers and homebirths. Ongoing now, I run HypnoBirthing®️ Childbirth Education classes online through Zoom, so ask what class space is still available. I am honored to have served parents and there babies over the last 3 decades.
