Maria DeMaio

My husband and I were very grateful for Annie and her grounded presence during our son's birth. Deciding where and with whom to birth is such an important part of awakening the potential for an integrated confidence when welcoming life. Annie was very helpful in the postpartum period, her assistance was a beautiful reminder of the positive significance of women in community during birth and a witness to the amazing achievement that birth it is. My husband and I are very happy with the decision we made. Annie is a Juneau gem for sure!
