My name is Anne Margolis. I’m a mother of 4. My first two babies were born in a hospital with all the interventions, and my third and fourth were born naturally in the hands of a midwife.

I’m a Registered Nurse, OB/GYN Nurse Practitioner, Licensed Nurse Midwife,  Certified Prenatal & Postpartum Yoga Teacher and Clarity Breathwork Practitioner.

I’ve worked in a hospital as a nurse midwife and then opened my own holistic homebirth midwifery and gynecology practice of over 20 years (with a wait list!). I understand both the science and holistic perspectives of birth. Every woman has their own unique approach to mommahood. Your preferences are special and deserve to be honored.

Whether you are a first time momma feeling a little nervous and anxious about the birthing process or an experienced momma that maybe had an upsetting or even traumatizing birth experience. Or if you are feeling tension, stress, or overwhelm in your pregnancy or any part of the journey to motherhood trying to navigate all the different choices, and possibly not feeling supported or comfortable with the guidance you are receiving.

 
 

I’ve taken everything I’ve learned, trained and supported women with locally for over 20 years in my private practice and I’ve poured all of my love, passion, knowledge and experience into creating something truly special for you….introducing….

It’s a unique approach on how to have a deeply positive, empowered and joyful journey through pregnancy, birth and becoming a mom postpartum. Whether you have visions of a cozy home water birth, giving birth in a birth center, free of pain meds and intervention, or a hospital birth with the latest technology and emergency care access just in case, this is the ultimate pregnancy to postpartum training so you can be prepared from an emotional, physical and spiritual perspective to relax into birth and mommahood with excitement and ease.

This comprehensive training will help you find your center and feel balanced, strong, relaxed and calm within yourself during this special rite of passage into mommahood- in the midst of all the chaos of life along the way.


Brittany's video by @moanafilmes, @danicamata

I want to thank you Anne, for your online course. Because of it I was able to do a home water birth in Nicaragua where it is not common at all. I live abroad so it was my dream to have a natural birth in my home. Little did I know there are no doulas or certified midwives in the country. Your course helped me through it! My father in law caught the baby. What a special moment for the family! Thank you again for the knowledge I was able to achieve online!!!

The key to a positive birth, is feeling confident, strong, relaxed and empowered during the entire process, regardless of the twists and turns it may take.

In this online video course you’ll learn what is most effective, practical and proven, not just to relax and cope, but to really love your birth experience. So that whatever unexpected events you may face you can have an empowered, joyful journey.

The course gives you positive, practical guidance for everything you most need to create a Birth You Love. It is designed to bring you into alignment with yourself, setting you free from doubts you may have, while helping you to let go of anything that isn't supportive of the kind of pregnancy, birth and postpartum experience you'd like to create.  It strengthens you and your relationships, gives you confidence, and reminds you how powerful you truly are.

 

“Watching this course feels like you’re having long talks with a dear but very knowledgeable friend. The course helped me keep my thoughts in line when there are so many things we don’t have control of in life, and it helped me feel more confident by getting educated in areas where I had little. There is a lot of information, which is great for a first time pregnancy. Anne is delightful and really knows her stuff. She helped me feel more prepared and confident for pregnancy and birth. This course is priceless.

“This course not only prepared me for childbirth, but also for motherhood and beyond. It was so much more than how to approach labor and delivery and really tapped into the mind, heart, spirit and body for the full journey. It helped me discuss things with my partner that I did not even know needed to be discussed. I feel like a true team now that we’ve taken the course and discussed the workbook.
