Deep Blue Birth
"I had the lovely Annie share my fourth pregnancy and birth experience with me. It was by far the best and most positive labour and birth I have had so far... being informed, confident in my choices and supported 100% all the way, has made all the difference in the world."

Childbirth and Parenting Education
Annie is a dedicated Mother, Birth Attendant and Educator from South-East Melbourne.
Annie used Meditation, Visualisation, Controlled Breathing techniques and Natural Therapies extensively in order to bring both of her own children into the world. Following these experiences, she became extremely motivated to share her knowledge to benefit other mothers and mothers-to-be.
Annie knows that although medical interventions are sometimes required in the birth space- a strong, calm, positive mindset is perhaps the most valuable tool for the marathon that is birth.
Having worked for many years as a Teacher and Early Childhood Professional, Annie completed her Doula training through the Australian Doula College and undertook Childbirth Educator training at the Royal Women's hospital in 2017. She completes her Hypnobirthing training at the conclusion of 2018.
Annie believes in supporting women and their partners through their pregnancy, birth and early-parenthood experiences in a judgement-free setting.

The 'Why' of Deep Blue Birth
It's your Birth Story.
Your life story and experiences are your own, as unique as you are and this is central to how you will birth. As a Birth Attendant and Childbirth Educator, I know that my role is to be a resource offering support to you and your birth partner in making choices and creating your own birth story. It is my job to cheer you on throughout this utterly defining journey.
As a pregnant, birthing or postnatal person, you are deserving of the upmost respect, adulation and celebration. You are owed empowerment, pride, love, support, reassurance and clarity for informed choice, whatever you seek from birth and however your birth unfolds.
All parents, all babies and all births are different. There is no one right way to birth or to parent. Therefore all circumstances need to be considered with an open heart and an open mind. Families will invariably know what is best for them. My goal is to provide clarity on your options and quality education to allow you to make your own informed choices.
This transition to Motherhood or Parenthood and all the achievements and challenges therein should be attributed to the birthing person. Your relationship with your Doula and your Health Care Professionals is finite, as they act as a support and guide for you and/or your birth partner throughout this life-changing transition.
Your relationship with your child is for ever.
Deep Blue Birth's support and programs aim to assist you in beginning this lifelong bond with a positive birth experience. One that fills you with a feeling of contentment and pride- a priceless gift that cannot be understated.
