Aleah was the doula at my friend's birth and she was amazing. I watched her in action, helping my friend birth a 9lb baby, who was sunny-side up without any drugs, just Aleah's soothing voice and encouragement. She was very knowledgeable and confident about the birthing process and she even knew some of the hospital staff members, which really helped create such a great environment for the birth. Besides her support and encouragement, she also aided with different birthing positions, used essential oils, and helped with capturing some beautiful images. Finally, after the birth was finished, she was determined to stay to make sure mom and baby's breastfeeding relationship was successfully established. If you are looking for a soothing, encouraging, and team-oriented environment in your birthing room, Aleah will be a great choice for you.

Having Aleah as our doula was amazing! She arrived at the hospital 5 minutes after we did and never left our side! She was thorough, supportive and her voice was very soothing during intense contractions! My husband and I are so glad we hired Aleah as our doula! She played an integral part in the delivery of our son! She was not only helpful for me but my husband too! She made sure he was included in the process; offering words of encouragement to him too! If you're looking for a doula, look no more! You've found the perfect one in Aleah!

Having a doula like Aleah was the BEST money I spent during my entire pregnancy. Before delivery, she helped me understand the signs of labor I was feeling to best determine when to go to the hospital. When I arrived at the hospital, she helped me fight through labor pains as long as long as I could take it and was exceptional at coaching me to hang in there and breath through. She was well versed in hospital protocal educated me on all that the doctors/nurses asked of me and helped ensure I didn't fall into the routines of a normal delivery at a hospital and to question everything being given or done to me. After delivery, Aleah was a wealth of knowledge in breastfeeding and in helping me understand typical issues faced with latching, baby falling asleep, growth spurts and general motivation to keep pushing through. If it wasn't for Aleah, I would have gone to the hospital too soon, had an epirdural too soon, fallen into some of the hospital protocol that was not needed and stopped breast feeding. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a doula!

Aleah was phenomenal at our birth. She was so calming and very helpful in giving direction. We used hypnobabies and she really helped me try to relax through our birthing experience. We chose to use the water birth tub to labor and she did a lot of counter pressure and support while I was in the tub. She has so many wonderful techniques for helping with birthing children. She has a gift in assisting in birth and you would be blessed to have her attend your birth. 

Aleah....we can not thank you enough for helping us bring Jane into this world.

As a first time mom, I was very nervous about giving birth. I chose to hire a doula to aleviate some of the first time mom anxiety. Aleah truly listened to what I wanted for my birthing experience, which was very important to me. She is very personable and professional. She checked in with me the weeks prior to going into labor and is always very pleasant. My initial meeting with her was not only comforting, it was educational- we discussed some things to expect and reviewed my birth plan. 

Although it seemed nothing with my delivery went as I planned, Aleah helped make me comfortable. During the initial first couple hours, Aleah talked me through laboring at home which was very comforting. She was very accomodating about talking/texting with me until I needed her at the hospital. Based on our meeting and discussions- she helped me prepare for the expected and the unexpected and she even came prepared with a few extra tricks up her sleeve! She had a backup doula arranged who was also very pleasant and professional. I was thoroughly pleased with her service and plan to recommend her to everyone I know!
