Hi, my name is Anna, but all my friends call me Anya, and you can too. I was born in Siberia, Russia. Then I studied Theatrical Art in St.Petersburg. After university I moved to Budapest, Hungary where I started to teach Hatha and Prenatal yoga classes. At the same time I started having doula clients from my prenatal yoga students. I was a witness to a miracle. Since there was no way to go back, only further to achieve my dream and to become a midwife. When I became pregnant I moved to Austin, TX. 


I wanted a home birth. It's a long story (you can read it in my blog), but eventually I had an amazing unassisted birth of 10 pounds baby with 38cm head without any tears and even scratches. After that experience I think we are incredible.


Our mind and body in such a deep connection,

that we can do everything,

if we believe in ourself 


And I believe in every woman. In your wisdom. In your body. In your baby. I'm here to help you to find all the information you need to make the best decision. I believe it's very important to listen to yourself and to your body. I want all women to know that we all deserve respect. You definitely need to feel confident and safe, to feel comfortable no matter where you decide to have a birth: at the hospital, at home, at a birthing center or at any other place. And I will be happy to help you. It will be an honor for me if you choose me as your doula.
