Anu is the name of the midwife that helped my mother birth me. A long, hard labour – I was coming into the world face-first, ready to drink in its wonders. Little did I know this name would be so deeply interwoven and unknowingly impactful.
NatalieAnu was founded in 2014 by me: Natalie Anu Stebbing. Originaaly from England, UK where Itrained & worked as a Registered Midwife since 2008. Sadly, I lost the sight in one eye & had to leave her dream career.
During this difficult period I took time to reflect, heal and look to the future. I turned my focus to my hobby: massage, and became a Certified Holistic & Pregnancy Massage Therapist in England in 2014.
Serendipity was also at play & during a trip to Colombia I met my now husband and followed my heart to Canada where I now live with him & our 3 children.
Following an incredible first birth & whilst pregnant with our second child in 2016 I certified as a HypnoBirthing® Childbirth Educator & am now sharing these passions with the families of Calgary.
My vmission is to provide a full spectrum service for families to achieve their best selves and I’m dediccated to advocating for all without judgement or discrimination.
