Your Doula is there to remind you to relax and enjoy the experience of birth
We feel so lucky to have found Alysa! She was an incredible doula to have on our birth team and just an all around amazing person to get to know, she made us feel so comfortable that it felt like just meeting with a friend from the first time we met! Her knowledge and guidance was amazing, she provided us with evidence based research and let us make our own decisions and supported us with whatever direction we went. We were especially thankful for the comfort measures she taught us and the support provided leading up to the actual labor. Our birth was different than what we had planned for unexpected medical reasons, and she was with us every step answering questions we had and just generally supporting us emotionally during the entire experience! The birth experience itself was so positive, and we were so glad to have Alysa with us to back us up and also help us advocate for ourselves. Her aura and presence alone helped us relax and be fully present in the moment, our labor and delivery room felt like a spa, and having her by my side helped immensely drown out the medical (sometimes anxiety inducing) side of things and just focus on me and my baby. Alysa also was certified as a lactation consultant before our birth so we were very lucky to have her on our breastfeeding journey! We cannot recommend her enough!!
