Are you pregnant?


I'm Anna

A new mom, writer, yoga teacher and Expectful's community guide.

After going through a rough patch in my pregnancy, I starting using Expectful's meditations and they transformed my life so much - that I joined the team shortly after giving birth to my daughter Annabell.

As Expectful Community guide, I've spent over year having intimate discussions with experts in pre and postnatal care, and hundreds of our subscribers about the ups and downs of this time in your life. From relationships, to body image to what it means to feel emotionally and physically supported, and I’ve learned a lot along the way.

Now, I'm bringing these these conversations directly to you so you have the tools to live your best life.

Is it possible to love your birth regardless of how your baby comes into the world?

Anne Margolis believes so and is here to tell us how.

As a midwife for over 20 years, Anne has delivered over 1,000 babies. Through her experience and training as a Registered Nurse, OB/GYN Nurse Practitioner, Licensed Nurse Midwife, Certified Prenatal & Postpartum Yoga Teacher and Clarity Breathwork Practitioner, she has mastered how to help women everywhere feel confident, empowered and relaxed as they approach birth – regardless of where or how they choose to have their baby come into the world.

On today’s episode, Anne is sharing her personal birth stories, how they moved her to transition out of nursing and into midwifery, and why she’s passionate about empowering women through birth.
