Celebrating Doula's all week long!

"Doula: A doula is a professional trained in childbirth who provides emotional,physical and informational support to the mother who is expecting, is experiencing labor, or has recently given birth. The doula’s purpose is to help women have a safe, memorable and empowering birthing experience." American 

To be serious... I had never heard of a Doula before meeting Alisa... but boy was I in for a bucket full of knowledge and incite into the world of childbirth! Having 3 children of my own, Alisa gave me so much to think about!

Just celebrating her one year mark of becoming a Doula, Alisa is loving every moment of this  life changing journey! After hiring a Doula for the birth of Alisa's third child, Levi, six months later, she enrolled herself with Childbirth International!

Alisa meets with you, discusses birth plan while developing a relationship with you. Establishing a relationship is key and so important for this amazing experience. She is well educated on pros/cons of different situations as well as pain management. She becomes an emotional support during pregnancy, labor and birth. Your nurses and doctors may come and go, but your Doula is there... by your side. Doulas often use the power of touch and massage to reduce stress and anxiety during labor.
They are also wonderful to be a calming assurance to Dad's aswell if they might be anxious during the birthing process.

"Women are strong. I love being a part of such a beautiful experience when she finds that strength she didn't know she had." ~Alisa

Alisa is a Certified Doula and also offers Placenta Encapsulation, Belly Art as well as Belly Casting!
