About Me

profile picI’m Anne-Marie, proud mama to a two-year-old boy, a six-year-old puppy, and I’m the proud spouse of a bona fide philosopher. In addition to teaching HypnoBirthing® I write about motherhood, birth, and mental health, among other topics, with essays published in the books The Good Mother Myth and The Herstories Project.

I have been a certified HypnoBirthing® instructor since 2013. I earned the title “HBCE,” or HypnoBirthing® Childbirth Educator. I earned my certification in Kingston, NY, at a training organized by the HypnoBirthing® Institute.

I love teaching, and offer private and group courses. I also teach group courses at Yale-New Haven Hospital, for families who have chosen that hospital for their births. I had my own beautiful birth, there, so I’m thrilled to be working with the hospital. Sign up for our next scheduled group class today!
