Happy Place Birthing

Annika Suoma Frey Bio

Annika was born and raised in Germany. After finishing school she followed her big dream, starting to study acting, singing and dancing on The Stage School in Hamburg. A severe bout of depression stopped her and after healing and coming back to herself she studied as technical draftswoman. Along the way she found and married her soul partner, Dennis. They moved to Ireland and several years went by, she got sucked into the corporate world, but never felt truly happy trading all those hours for money while the work was so dissatisfying.

So Annika quit her day job to pursue her dream of a lifestyle that suited her better. Over the last 4 years she founded several businesses, following every spark of passion, from body painting and pole dancing over creating dresses and costumes to having her own market stall, selling cake pops and chocolates. Her husband was able to quit his day job and now they run the market stall together, having lots of time with their two children and for new passion projects. While Dennis is writing fiction books in German, Annika has started a blog sharing happy birth stories and the tools that helped creating them, after having a life changing experience giving birth to her second son at home in the water. Her baby’s birth also inspired her to create a birth preparation online program, including her own relaxation technique, the “Happy Place Method”.
