    Care philosophy

    I believe that birth is natural, normal and that our bodies are primed for it. It's a right of passage and a sacred time to tune into the body! That being said, birth is unpredictable and I aim to educate my clients about the numerous possibilities that could take place. My primary goal is to reduce fear and create safe, peaceful environments for the transition from womb to world.

      I am very glad I hired Ali to be my birth doula. She made us feel really comfortable with her prenatal visits and she was very alert and present during the whole process. she helped me eliminate my fears, be confident and strong. I truly and highly recommend Ali to be a part of your journey, she will definitely be a part of mine next time around too!

      Ali was our first and only choice for prenatal doula and we felt incredibly supported before, during, and after the birth. She brings a warmth and love to her work that is so crucial during such an intense life event and we would recommend her to any and all expecting mothers and parents.

      Ali is a kind, knowledgable and empathetic doula. She comes to the birth space with a nurturing and mindful presence and offers evidenced-based information and holistic care. It’s an honor to know her, and I highly recommend that you book a consultation so you can meet her yourself. You’ll definitely want her on your birth team and in your corner!

      My husband and I enlisted Ali’s services for the birth of our second daughter after our previous doula moved out of state.
      Ali is very personable and knowledgeable. The services she provides are the perfect mix of scientifically based information and holistic medicine. Her Reiki and Reflexology treatment during my pregnancy were an amazing treat.
      During my delivery she was essential in keeping my husband and I calm and grounded. Delivering during a pandemic meant I could not have the same amount of people as my first delivery, I had 5 (!) support people the first time around, and Ali made it feel like I had the expect same level of support.
      Ali met us at the hospital right as my contractions began intensifying after my induction. She helped me breath through the first and second stages of labor, rubbing my lower back, and reminding me to relax my face.
      Her calm demeanor and expertise are a must in any doula, plus her lactation cookies were delicious!
      15/10 would recommend.
