Anastasia Stone is running for California State Senate in District 19 in the 2020 election. She graduated from Long Beach State in the field of early childhood education and family studies. Soon after, Anastasia trained with the Doulas of North America (DONA) to become a certified
doula; a trained professional who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to a mother before, during and shortly after childbirth in order to help her achieve the healthiest, most satisfying experience possible. She began her career teaching doula care and effective advocacy at Go Midwife, a midwifery school that focuses on providing education for underserved populations. Anastasia served as a chapter leader for the International Cesearean Awareness Network and, along with the Director of Maternal Health at Dominican Hospital in Santa Cruz, she taught a vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC) class; a birthing option not currently available to pregnant mothers at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital. Over the years, her advocacy efforts have provided numerous opportunities to work with teen moms and pregnant women in drug rehabilitation, teaching her the positive effect of early intervention.
As a former foster parent, Anastasia has created cultural change in foster care and
adoption for Santa Cruz and Santa Barbara Counties by bridging the gap between the
faith communities and the foster care system to provide more resources to improve both recruitment and retention.
Anastasia currently lives in Santa Barbara with her husband and five children.
