Mama + Babe Group Facilitator + Parent Educator
Annie is a DONA trained postpartum doula, the owner of Mt Tam Mamas and mother of 4. Her own journey into first time motherhood rocked her world in a way she didn't expect (thanks hormones, sleep deprivation and postpartum anxiety!), and she believes she could not have survived those first few years without her tribe of fellow mamas. She is passionate about creating and nurturing a community for new parents, and facilitating Mama + Babe groups is a dream come true. She brings with her an exuberant passion for babies, a sense of groundedness and intuition, and wholehearted empathy for the new parents’ experiences. She strives to create a judgement-free environment filled with humor and the goal of empowering new parents with evidence-based knowledge they will need to feel confident and capable in their new role.
Annie lives in Mill Valley with her husband and blended family of 4 kids. When she’s not working or momming, Annie loves to hike the endless trails of Marin County, meditate and do yoga with her husband, and spend as much time outside soaking in the California weather with friends and family.
