Hello and Welcome.
I am here for women who want want to recover calm confidence for conception, birth, and the postnatal period. I also work with women experiencing endometriosis or a similar health challenge seeking less distress and more ease.
This is where you can book an online session. If you are pregnant you can also access printable resources for positive childbirth.
As the daughter of a midwife, I have always recognised the value of supporting women. My own two children's births were positive, but, having experienced both infertility and postnatal depression, I know a woman's reproductive journey is not always easy.
I trained in mindfulness and as an acupressure massage therapist (Shiatsu), EFT/Tapping practitioner, and HypnoBirthing teacher. Over twenty years, I have worked with hundreds of women, couples and midwives in classes, workshops, and 1-1, as well as attending multiple births as a support person.
My Clients say:
"Anna is such a skilled practitioner, healer and teacher. She is incredibly nurturing and supportive, guiding you and holding the space for you to process your deepest emotional hurdles in what seems like a matter of minutes. Anna is totally present with whatever arises for someone... one moment you're crying next you're laughing together. Anna's has integrity, heart and passion to help people overcome their obstacles."
“For me, one session with Anna was like having 6 sessions with a counselor”
"I was able to create new joyful feelings to replace old fearful & painful ones. I feel much more enthusiastic & empowered about giving birth again. Anna brings compassion, empathy, experience and tools to deal with painful experiences. Thank you, Anna, your passion is infectious & always a joy!"
“I was highly resistant to any suggestion that I could not have a natural birth. However, my twins were in a tricky position and had to be born by cesarean. It was a lot due to working with Anna Wilde, that I was able to enter the theatre in such a good, calm and trusting place. It was the most amazing birth experience.”
“After our two previous traumatic births this birth was an uplifting and life-changing experience for both of us. I felt so in-control. I could feel the gaps in between the contractions, relax and mentally prepare for the next. It was an absolutely beautiful labour. My 3 sessions with Anna were a big part of achieving that.”
“When I became pregnant with my third, some of my worst fears were: my body can’t deliver the placenta itself, transferral to hospital, and ‘failure’ at a totally natural birth. The work I did with Anna was incredible. In one hour these old emotions, and others, were cleared quickly and simply.”
A little more of my story
I am multi-passionate; I love being a mother, working part-time at a local school, going on adventures, (I write this whilst living in Kyoto, Japan with my family), cycling rather than driving, hiking, camping, playing very amateur guitar, reading, learning languages and doing new things.
I also enjoy cooking delicious healthy food. I authored two popular New Zealand cookbooks with my husband Roger, Real Fresh Food, and Real Fresh Gluten Free Food, which sold over 8000 copies.
Supporting women's wellbeing, especially over the reproductive years has always been my passion. I have worked with women from all over the world, making difficult times a little bit easier.
