I can’t say enough about Annie! She has been my rock, my inspiration and now my friend. The entire experience with her has exceeded my expectations. The prenatal visits were inspirational to say the least. I never thought I could be as creative as Annie made me feel I could be and in fact was during those sessions. From the very beginning, she engaged my 5 year old daughter in the whole process, making her feel important and needed.

The day of my daughter’s birth we had a planned gentle C-Section. I never felt judged by any of my decisions and in fact, Annie’s consistent validation help instill confidence and strength. Of course, things never go as planned. Annie’s calm yet strong presence helped me stay focused and in control. She created several playlists for the day according to my needs, which made a huge difference in the experience. She involved my husband, helping him feel more comfortable and continued to help my daughter understand her vital role after the birth.

I cannot recommend Annie enough! She listened, was always there but never intrusive, was responsive and warm. She continues to support me, even as my needs change.

I have never had a doula before but after the traumatic experience of my first daughter’s birth, I would never have it any other way. Annie’s unique skills created an environment that was calm and beautiful, exactly what my daughter deserves. She is an amazing person and I’m so glad to have shared this experience with her!

Annie Walljasper was present for the birth of my son in December of 2010 and was available to me during my pregnancy in 2014 and after birth.  Any time I had a question, or needed reassurance, she was there to set my mind at ease and help build my confidence.  It was especially wonderful to have her as a coach when my husband was overwhelmed with the miracle of life.

Annie is a great support system and is very welcoming and comfortable with many aspects of pregnancy and birthing.  She is very knowledgable and creative.  My husband and I loved having Annie with us as we welcomed our first son into the world and we were very excited that she continued to be of great support with my second pregnancy.

I trust Annie Walljasper very much and would highly recommend her.
