    “Anna creates a space to connect with other mothers when social isolation can be hard. She is encouraging and provides the tools to reconnect with the part of yourself that is calm amongst the chaos of being mum.”

    “I've finished reading your book. Your words are perfect and it's just what I needed... It helped me realise a few things that I couldn't pinpoint about myself, and I've started thinking about myself in a different way. I can see past the rage and the grief and overwhelm. I have a long way to go but I'm on a good path now. Thank you for your work!”
