My husband and I were so blessed to find Alisha.  She is very knowledgeable, patient and kind-perfect for us as first time parents.  She met with me before delivery and worked with me to articulate the type of birth experience that I wanted.  And thanks to her help, I got the birth of my dreams!  Her postpartum visits were very calming and assuring when concerns came up.  If you are considering a doula assisted birth, I would highly recommend Alisha!

Thank you!  Love H, E and T

Alisha attended my the homebirth of my daughter in 2014 and she was great. We met quite a few times before the birth and discussed all my fears and expectations for the birth which I found really helpful. Then when I went into labor and wanted her there she came right over. She was there reminding me to drink and applying pressure to my back for probably over 6 hours! She was even willing to get in the tub with me to continue the counterpressure. She was such a great addition to my birth team!
