Kia Ora! 

I'm Anna - Founder of Anna's Birth Services and a super passionate and friendly parent-centered birth worker in Wellington. I have instinctively trained in services that prioritises your emotional and mental well-being through pregnancy, birth and beyond.

As an experienced accredited BirthBliss birth doula and member of The Doula Association, I will provide you with continuous emotional, physical and practical support; walking alongside you (and your partner/siblings if applicable) and working cohesively with your LMC, and as you grow in confidence in your ability to have an empowering experience, whatever choices you make.

As the only qualified KGHypnobirthing teacher and member in the lower North Island, I run group and private courses that will support you to release fear, get informed and build trust, leaving you and your partner (if applicable) feeling equipped and ready for a more calm, and comfortable birth.

And as the first member of the Traumatic Birth Recovery College of Perinatal Emotional Health in NZ, I specialise in trauma recovery with 3 Step Rewind. I safely, gently and effectively offer therapeutic skills to meet your needs if you have experienced a difficult or traumatic event in pregnancy, during the birth, or the days afterwards, including loss.

I hope you enjoy looking through the variety of services I offer. If there is something you want to know that you cannot find the answer for, I welcome all questions and inquiries!

I am already looking forward to hearing from you - you won't regret it!

KGHypnobirthing

My 2 day course is all about your mindset for birth; trusting the process, releasing fear, and getting informed.  And no, I won't make you eat an onion believing it to be an apple! You and your partner (if applicable) will come away feeling equipped, inspired and empowered; ready to have the best possible birth for you and your baby. More calm, more confident, more in control, and looking forward to a more comfortable birth.

Parent Blessings

Move over, baby showers! Blessing ceremonies are all about the parent; a spiritual reflection inspired by the roots of the Navajo, where traditionally, women celebrate and support the emotional and spiritual journey into motherhood by nurturing the new mother. Invite your closest friends to come together for a sacred gathering; to pamper, nurture and celebrate you on your journey to parenthood by making you feel loved, supported and held. How you do this is up to you - get creative as you like!

Under level 2 all my services are in-person (following recommended safety measures) or via Zoom. The DHB restrictions on support people unfortunately limit the way I can support those birthing in hospital.
