- Mother of 6 children, 3 hospital and 3 home birth.  Sought out by family, friends, neighbors and strangers for maternal care and support during the childbearing year, she found herself acting in the role of doula back in the 90's - long before we had this name of "doula".  Called into midwifery and then women's health education, 20 years after the birth of MaternityWise, Anne is still teaching and caring for families.

- Current Training Director of MaternityWise, International Training and Certification Program for Labor and Postpartum Doulas, Lactation Support and Educators as well as leading the EpiDoula program, both in curriculum writing, but also in providing in-person advanced training. Anne has had the pleasure of leading trainings in several different countries around the world.

 

- Former Owner/Director of Tranquil Seasons Doula Agency in San Antonio, TX, conducting all initial intakes, and enjoyed serving families with Infant Sleep Support, Breastfeeding Support, Parent Coaching, Antenatal, Postpartum and Birth Doula care. She was also the lead teacher for the Tranquil Seasons Childbirth Ed classes. She provided in-person consultations for families just needing advice.

- Childbirth, Breastfeeding and Newborn Care class teacher for the San Antonio Baptist Health & Hospital System.

- Co-Founder of the San Antonio Birth Collective, which hosted monthly and annual events including the Mama & Baby Expo.

- Public speaker on topics that range from maternal mortality to trauma in mothers and young children.  Recurring guest speaker on television, radio, podcasts, and at local community events, women's retreats and the Congress on Children in San Antonio, TX.

Certified Labor and Birth Doula, Certified Postpartum Doula, Certified Doula Trainer, Certified Lactation Support & Educator, CPR certified and has taught childbirth preparation classes as well as Newborn Care, Motherhood Transition and Breastfeeding classes for multiple venues, both in and out of a hospital setting.

 

- Anne has been serving families as a doula since 1993 and has cared for hundreds of babies and their families through pregnancy, birth and postpartum. She is particularly good with mothers who need sleep, encouragement and a clean house, as well as difficult to soothe babies and sleep adjustments. 

 

- Anne has experience serving families with kosher households, the joys of adoption, single parenting, cesarean complications, fertility difficulties, breastfeeding issues, re-lactation, postpartum mood disorders including anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress, special needs babies, multiples, micro-preemies, attachment parenting, schedule adherence, GERD/Reflux, colic, food allergies (specifically gluten, dairy, egg, shellfish and nut), sleep disturbances, "sleep training", homebirth and more. Nothing could suprise her.

 

- Anne also understands the needs of and enjoys serving high-profile families. She has served as well as trained many doulas who care for families that appreciate this special level of discrete support.
