The Doula's Story (Annessa)

Hello! My name is Annessa Germond and I am the doula. The absolute most important aspect of the doula-client relationship is chemistry. Having total trust in your doula is the first step in having a fearless birth. My hope is that you can get to know me a little and see if we'd be a good fit.

Our home is full of love with 2 birds, 2 cats, 1 dog, and 1 incredibly patient husband. That's only on days that we don't have multiple children running around or our beloved friends and family joining us. My heart is full when my home is. Which is why this is where my free consultations and meetings are held. However, if you prefer a different scenery, I am always excited to meet with clients at the local coffee shop or Fayetteville Pie Co. (YUM!)

We love the military! There's a special place in our hearts for the military between the Indiana Army National Guard being my first full time job, to meeting my husband at Advanced Individual Training, to my husband being stationed at Fort Bragg for 6 years. We understand the triumphs and challenges many military families go through. 

Last but not least, I full heartedly believe that every birth is beautiful! It doesn't matter whether it is in a hospital, your home, or birthing center. I believe it's beautiful if you have a caesarean section or vaginal birth, all natural or epidural... it is all stunning! I love getting to know my clients and help teach, coach, and comfort them in the upcoming days.

I love being a doula.
