Birth Fee: $50 to $850
Fee Details: Sliding scale, bartering as well. Those with the highest financial strain will be seen first. I have a strong drive to give back to the community. My target market is the low to no income pregnant families in the Inner City Edmonton. I specialize in high risk pregnancies, drug and alcohol addicted parents, parents with differing physical and mental abilities, single parents, parents making difficult reproductive choices, parents wishing for guidance with the resources available to low/no income parents/children and additional supplies and additional support in pregnancy/parenthood. I provide an extensive package that begins with monthly then weekly prenatal sessions, continuous support throughout the labour and birthing process, followed by daily then weekly immediate postpartum sessions for a basic package in which I also like to include Healing Arts and the concepts of Mental Health Recovery.

Anna was an amazing Doula for our family. She is very knowledgable, and goes through many techniques that can be used for pain managment in labor. She took time with me from the beginning of my pregnancy to meet with me monthly. She also works with other moms to provide some second hand essentials that have been very helpful when starting out with our little one at such a difficult financial time for our family. We are so thankful for everything Anna did for us. she is very kind, listens well. You never feel rushed through appts. My husband added that she is a very soft-hearted, and caring individual. She took time to research questions we had about different things we could encounter during labor and delivery. Both my husband and I enjoyed working with her through my pregnancy.
Thankyou so much Anna!!
