A Note From Andersen:
HI! I’m Andersen! I am a mom of 3, ages 7, 2 and 4 months. My husband and I live in Greenwood, Indiana but someday hope to call the beach home, where our hearts lie.
I am a lover of true crime, nature, learning about holistic health and ancient health practices. My favorite food is probably French fries, and chocolate chip cookies. Music is something I have always felt connected to, and is a major outlet for me, exploring all genres. If it has a good beat and lyrics, you can catch it on my playlist.
After working in various sectors of Healthcare for 6 years, I felt like I was always searching for more. I knew I was meant for something beyond just a 9-5 desk job. After my second birth I became interested in birthwork. I knew families deserved more education, advocacy and mental, emotional and physical support than what was being offered in the medical system. My goal is to create a space where individuals and their families feel at peace and comfortable in their own decisions surrounding pregnancy and birth through informed decision making that aligns with their values, generating power and knowledge.
