My name is Anya Helgeson (she/her) and I am honored to meet you. Birth is a transformative time for families and I believe you should feel empowered and supported in your birthing experience. As a doula, I am here to support you through pregnancy, labor, and into postpartum.
Doulaing: The act of educating, loving, respecting, listening, embracing, advocating for, and assisting a birthing person prenatally, during labor, childbirth, and after.
Anya was very knowledgeable, providing comfort and support throughout the pregnancy. She was a calm an reassuring presence to have in the room during the birthing process and was warm and reassuring while I was moving through postpartum. I found her services and resources to have contributed greatly to having a positive birth experience and would recommend her to family and friends.
Thank you so so so much for evening you did last night! You were exactly what Marina and I needed, and I don't want to imagine how it would have been without you.

Anya was incredibly supportive, kind, and caring throughout our birthing experience. My birth experience was not what I was hoping it would be but working with Anya made the world of difference, From holding my hand during my cesarean to being emotionally supportive for my partner during difficult moments, she was able to support us in ways we hadn't even thought of.
