Anne Margolis, CNM, LM, NP, MSN, BSN, RNC
Anne Margolis discovered her passion for holistic care for women after working as an obstetric nurse and having two hospital births herself where she narrowly escaped cesarean sections due to the cascade of interventions.
Her third and fourth children were born into the loving hands of a midwife, and this, combined with her experiences working in a hospital, convinced her that all women deserve to have educated, peaceful, deeply positive, rewarding and empowering births.
She has worked tirelessly as a home birth midwife for more than 21 years, having full confidence in the healthy woman’s innate ability to give birth normally, naturally and with pleasure despite the challenges. She is devoted to protecting undisturbed physiological labor and birth, and is dedicated to providing a sensitive, personal, and humanistic environment.
Anne’s maternity care for women begins even before conception, and includes pregnancy, childbirth, postpartum, gentle parenting of the newborn and breastfeeding.
Her holistic care extends to gynecological services for women from adolescence straight through to menopause.
Recognizing the great need around the globe for access to education and resources for normal, natural and joyful childbearing, Anne is expanding her integrative services to the online world. She is channeling her passion and expertise to provide online consultations and classes, to meet the needs of many mamas thirsty for more information.
Anne launched the Home Sweet Homebirth Instagram and Facebook pages as an outlet for her passion to use social media to inspire, support, educate, and empower childbearing mamas, and connect with likeminded women throughout the world. The community expanded rapidly and continues to grow exponentially.
She loves the virtual community she has built so far, engaging with, helping, and learning from people all across the globe.
She hopes to foster opportunities for likeminded mamas to create actual connections and form communities. She plans to host supportive pregnancy and postpartum circles and retreats.
Anne is also an aspiring yogi and yoga teacher; and uses the effective tools of yoga, mediation, breathwork, mindfulness and visualization to help mamas along their journeys. See more information about the yoga classes she offers here. As a Clarity Breathwork practitioner, I help people rebirth themselves - to remove blocks that stand in their way to living a life they want, to heal from inner stress, emotional pain and trauma, which cause so much suffering and illness and hurt well-being, lives, and relationships.
In addition to midwifery, Clarity Breathwork and yoga, Anne loves to dance, travel, and appreciates creativity in its many forms, as well as delicious whole foods including dessert. She revels in the stunning beauty of nature, lives a life of color, and balances her meditative side with love of play and laughter. Above all, she is drawn to kindness and positive vibes, spreads her enthusiasm to others by living life to the fullest, and adores her tribe.
