I am a mother, wife, sister and friend and I have experienced the extraordinary transformation of each of these "ordinary" roles in life. I am here now, to help guide you to Dr. Bushnell's many offerings, for the support you're seeking during your pregnancy and upcoming birth. I love answering your email, registering virtual or in person classes and private sessions. Nothing makes me happier or more content than supporting you during this amazing time in your life.

Annique Sampson

Apprenticeship Team

I’m Annique, Somatic Coach and married mama of two boys (5 & 14). Before becoming a coach in 2016, I was a home & birth center Midwife and Birthing From Within Mentor for 10+ years.
Holding compassionate space for others to heal is my lifeblood. I especially adore working with other healing professionals and mothers. I support them in healing anxiety, self-doubt, and shame so they can feel more at home within themselves and the world.
My specializations include Internal Family Systems (IFS), Polyvagal Theory & nervous system regulation, Mindful Self-Compassion, somatic coaching, and trauma healing.


Compassion, connection, and authenticity are my core values, and infused throughout my work.

Guiding Values

Curiosity—openness, self-reflective

Depth—below the surface, profound, heart-centered

Community—supportive, loving, just, and equitable

Growth—to evolve, grow, develop, change, continue

Integrity—honest, genuine, brave, true to self

Guiding Principles

  • Perfection is an illusion. Growth is valued here. We understand that setbacks, missteps, and “failures” are often opportunities for growth and learning.
  • Individuals are the experts in their own lives.
  • Not-knowing is a position and practice that has value in its own right.
  • Wisdom comes in many forms and from many sources.
  • Birth/postpartum work and soul work are interconnected.
  • Anti-racism, LGBTQIA inclusion, and intersectionality are inseparable from birth and postpartum work.
  • Brave communities of people are great for stimulating and supporting inner and outer development.
