My experience with Alyssa was everything I had hoped for when I decided to hire a doula. She made me feel strong, empowered and fully capable of birthing my baby exactly how I had envisioned. I felt like I always had an advocate on my side. Even when there were bumps in the road during my labor, she was there to remind me of my wants and the importance of my birth plan. The techniques used to help ease labor pains and worries were invaluable! I was able to birth my baby without the use of pain medication, just as I wanted!
I cannot thank Alyssa enough for helping to make this entire experience so memorable, beautiful and empowering!
The experience I had with Alyssa as my doula was invaluable. She was supportive, informative, and empowering. When things did not go quite as I had planned during child birth, Alyssa reality tested the situation with me and helped ensure that my voice was heard, advocating for me despite having to move away a bit from what I had asked for in my birth plan.
I cannot imagine my experience without Alyssa and highly recommend her services.
Alyssa did an outstanding job as our birth doula. My husband and I were pregnant with our second child. We were looking for a doula to help us with the process, and wanted to work with someone who was taking similar precautions against COVID as we were. Even though we had been through it before, Alyssa was incredibly helpful in preparing us for the birth, helping us get into a positive mindset, and helping us achieve us achieve the birth experience we had hoped for. Her communication with us was always clear and patient.
Because of Alyssa's help, we were able to have a vaginal birth without an epidural. She provided great input that helped us stay longer at home, prior to active labor. Her calm and positive approach made the long pre-labor period fly by faster than we expected and kept our spirits up. She met us at the hospital as soon as we were admitted. Our baby was not in the best orientation for birth, and Alyssa helped us with different positions and techniques to help rotate the baby. Alyssa also helped us work with the hospital to ensure we got a room with a birthing tub, and we were able to use it for a water birth.
Alyssa put us in touch with useful post-partum resources to help us with the transition to having multiple children.
