Meet the Evidence Based Birth® Minnesota Instructors
Anne Ferguson, CD(DONA), CPD, HCHI
I am a certified birth and postpartum doula, a certified Hypnobabies Childbirth Hypnosis Instructor and an Evidence Based Birth® Instructor. I live in Minnetonka with my two sons.
I have been passionate about birth and breastfeeding since giving birth to my first son in 2006. My natural hospital birth with the support many family members, a midwife and doula led me down the path I have followed since then. My second son was a planned home birth in 2009. I became a birth doula in 2011 and a Hypnobabies Instructor in 2012. I added postpartum doula certification to my offerings in 2015.
I am passionate about families having the proper support and information to have a positive and empowering birth experience.

Doula (CD)DONA, Hypnobabies Doula, Certified Lactation Counselor, Craniosacral Therapist, Registered Somatic Movement Therapist, Registered Trainer with the Minnesota Center for Professional Development
am a somatic movement therapist, providing integrative body-mind support to childbearing women, breastfeeding newborns and young
children. As a doula I help a woman to actively participate in birth with her baby through movement, mindfulness and informed health choices.
Prenatally I provide bodywork to help women and babies align for easier birth and postpartum to recuperate from its intensity. As a somatic practitioner I offer movement awareness and mindfulness practices, including Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction.
My mission in MamaBebe is to help a woman to deeply access her intuition and her own intelligence in birth and in caring for herself and her baby. Self-knowledge along with access to evidence based care empowers a woman to make informed health choices for optimal well-being for herself and her baby.
