Congratulations on your pregnancy!


The day you meet your baby is a day you will never forget.

With the right support, preparation and an environment in which you feel most comfortable, birth can be a positive experience that leaves you feeling empowered, and with wonderful memories.

I would be privileged to help you achieve this!


Arohanui, Anna xx



“Birth Matters…
It matters because it is the way we all begin our lives outside of our source, our mother’s bodies. It’s the means from which we enter and feel our first impression of the wider world. For each mother, it is an event that shakes and shapes her to her innermost core. Women’s perceptions about their bodies and their babies’ capabilities will be deeply influenced by the care they receive around the time of birth.”

-Ina May Gaskin
