Meet Anja Farin
I am a Certified Professional Midwife, licensed in Wisconsin. My journey as a birth worker began with my own four births, all of which were un-medicated, one in a hospital setting, and three at home. These babies were raised with breast-sleeping, child-lead weaning, attachment parenting, homeschooling and public schooling. And, as they are all teens and young adults now, I can assure you that they do eventually sleep in their own beds!
As a doula and childbirth educator, I began serving families in 1997. After some time devoted to the above-mentioned parenting of four busy, growing children, I came back to the work of studying midwifery. I earned my CPM and Wisconsin license in 2010. I began studying the Arvigo® Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy in 2013, taking a total of four-week long classes, including Self-Care, Professional Care, Advanced Pregnancy, and culminating in Certification in the techniques in 2017 with the final class in Belize. I am an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) since 2016, though I spent many years in various La Leche League groups gratefully receiving and eventually providing mother-to-mother support for breastfeeding parents.
My whole family works behind the scenes to make the support of young families possible. In my free time, I love to hike, take photos, knit, sew, and sing.
