Congratulations On Your Pregnancy.

Whether this is your first or fourth child…whether you’re feeling apprehensive or already confident…I'm here to support you with an empowering and unique blend of nurturing approaches that offer a 360 degree approach to birth preparation. 

The Shala approach to birthing respects that birth is as unique as we are.

Learning about birth, the science behind it, how to work with medical professionals and our mindset, are all fascinating parts of birth preparation, yet I feel that sometimes birth preparation approaches can overlook a vital perspective… deep, visceral connection to our bodies, our instincts, the sensations and how to masterfully work with our breath (that can be a gamechanger in birth) and effortlessly calm our system, alongside nurturing an instinctive connection to our baby. 

 

In our sessions, I wholeheartedly offer you my 10 years experience of supporting pregnant women (alongside experience of my own two different kinds of births and parenting 2 children) in a experiential style, where you FEEL the effects of a calm nervous system and feel good hormones - so by the time you reach your birth these states are effortlessly within your body's memory. 

 

When you work with me 1:1 on our Shala Mama Programme you are guided through 20 hours of pregnancy/postnatal sessions that are entirely tailored to you - or join me for individual ceremonies, treatments or courses. You can find them below..

 Join me at our calming Margate space or online - it'd be an honour to support you at this time.

All the best, 

Anna

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

I can't recommend Anna Brook's hypnobirthing course enough. I went into it not knowing all that much about hypnobirthing, and feeling quite nervous about how to cope with my birth, but came out of it feeling confident, empowered and excited - ready for whatever happens on the day, be it 'to plan' or otherwise. What I liked most about Anna's approach is her open-mindedness. She advocates what's best for you and your baby and doesn't stipulate rights or wrongs, which is really refreshing in a world that can feel full of quite black and white opinions on what you should and shouldn't do. Her course has left me with a deep trust of myself and my instincts - thank you so much Anna.
