Birth Doula Services
As your Doula, I will help you to feel informed and empowered to have the birth that is exactly right for you. Through being truly heard, you will gain the knowledge and support to have a birth without unnecessary stress or fear.
I support Moms with or without Acupuncture during the birth. Acupuncture can be a beautiful support to help ease discomfort, stress or worry and help Mom to be relaxed and calm during labor and delivery.
Please give a call and we can talk more about my Acu-Doula services!
Annie is a Nationally Board Certified and North Carolina State Licensed Acupuncturist and Professional Birth Doula. She practices Worsley style Five Element Acupuncture and studied at Wu Hsing Tao School in Seattle, WA. Her passion for Acupuncture came from receiving treatment for stress while in school at Bastyr University. She immediately felt a connection with the ancient wisdom and healing power of this medicine.
Fertility, pregnancy (including Acupuncture during labor) and postpartum care are among Annie’s main interests. She has seen, firsthand, the relief that comes with treatment for new moms. Having a baby can be the most fulfilling experience we will ever have. However, this time of joy may come with a whole set of new challenges. Babies need Moms to be feeling comfortable and taken care of. While most of the attention turns to the baby after the birth, the mother still needs support and nourishment. Acupuncture can help Moms feel grounded, centered, relaxed and happy. And happy Moms make happy babies!

"What we think, we become"
Annie is as kind as she is talented. I was a regular patient of Annie's for years as she helped my family navigate fertility and hormonal issues - and facilitated a healthy pregnancy for my now 4 year old daughter. She is a warm, caring, inquisitive practitioner and makes you feel heard and cared for at every turn. I can't say enough good things about treatment with Annie.
Annie is an amazingly knowledgeable, compassionate, and genuine acupuncturist and doula. I had the opportunity to work with her consistently for over a year as I was seeking assistance for infertility. She helped to relieve stress and advised on overall wellness from a holistic perspective during a time that was very overwhelming. Annie was also my doula and was the perfect support to both myself and my husband during delivery. I have and will continue to recommend Annie to anyone who is interested in acupuncture!
Annie is a goddess. I love her wholistic approach to treatment, her soothing energy, and her nurturing vibe. I saw her to help my breech twins flip, and just the day after the first visit, baby A flipped head down! Aside from the awesome physical benefits of our sessions, I felt that my emotional and spiritual needs were heard and addressed through the treatments. I left feeling a million pounds lighter and refreshed in my whole being. Would definitely recommend paying her a visit. :)
