Ranae Broadhead

Alexa was awesome to work with. She was always available when I had a question no matter what time of the day or what kind of a question small or big. She always listened to my concerns and helped me make the decision that I wanted and I never felt belittled or frowned upon in any decision I made.

I had a planned cesearan and Alexa was there early in the morning with me. She helped me feel calm in anticipation for the surgery. She was willing to do calming techniques if needed. I really wanted pictures of my delivery this time around but due to hospital rule, she was not allowed in the operating room but was happy to stand outside and take pictures for me through the viewing window! 

I had never even thought about a birth plan with any of my other babies but Alexa helped me put one together and this was by far my easiest and most enjoyable birth. She helped make pregnancy, delivery, and post partum that much better. I would definantely recommend her to anyone looking for a doula!

Alexa was the most supportive doula throughout my pregnancy and labor.
She helped me bring my baby earthside in a hospital that wasn't very friendly towards natural minded mamas or their doulas, but did everything she could to support me.
A few highlights from the birth of my daughter were Alexa helping coach my husband in ways to help me work through contractions and her performing robozo sifting for me while my epidural wasn't working.
Alexa is extremely considerate, compassionate, and full of love for her clients.
I would recommend her to anyone looking to have unwavering support and a memorable birthing experience.

Alexa is an awesome doula! She has a beautiful personality and is very knowledgable. I feel very forunate to have been able to have her help and support. Alexa was willing to answer all of my crazy questions and was there for me when labor began. She helped me figure out what I was experiencing and used various techniques to help me throughout labor. She supported me in utilizing the Hypnobirthing techniques I learned in a class I took. 

Alexa is able to connect with women before, during, and after birth to make them feel loved, valued, and taken care of. Alexa helped me gain confidence and voice my needs. She is able to use her education and knowledge to figure out which techniques will work best for each mama in labor and in birthing their baby. I know this from my own experience and from talking with those who have also had her as a doula. 

Alexa also helped me learn and utilize the bengkung binding technique to help me feel more like a human being after the birth of my baby. 

I always felt supported and taken care of with Alexa as my doula. She knew just what to do and when it needed to be done. She is very skilled and yet still down-to-earth.

I recommend Alexa as a doula to everyone I know. She is amazing and I will continue to recommend her and I look forward to having her at my next birth.

Alexa is an incredible doula. She's very personable, encouraging, and knows her stuff. Not only has she been a wonderful support to me but she's become a great friend. She really seems to care about her clients. I'd highly recommend Alexa to anyone looking for a doula.

Alexa is awesome. She is just the kind of person you want by your side as you are going through one of the most intense emotional, physical and mental experiences of your life. I first started talking to Alexa because I was considering giving birth drug-free. She was a great resource to me, and answered all my questions, and never pressured me one way or the other. After a lot of thinking I decided that a drug-free birth was not for me and her support for me never changed. The most important thing she taught me was that I was the one in charge. I could tell by the way she spoke to me that she cared just as much as I did about giving birth the way I wanted to. She made me feel empowered to make the choices that were best for me. I unexpectantly ended up giving birth drug-free. It was a very fast delivery. I'm so glad that I had been talking to Alex about a drug-free birth because I knew what to expect and even though it wasn't what I had planned I felt empowered because not only did I have her I also had the knowledge she gave me. I will absolutely be using Alexa again if I am lucky enough to have another baby.

Alexa is an amazing doula! 

She is kind, gentle and loving. She helped me cope with labor by reminding me how to breath and use my voice! With her guidance I was able to try several different labor positions until we found the sweet spot! She straight up squeezed my hips together with each contraction for basically 6 hours! (shes willing to get in a good workout if it means you're more comfortable!)

She guided my husband as well to show him ways to help me so that he was more involved with the process. 

Alexa knew my birth plan so well, she was able to be a voice for me so i could focus on laboring while she did all the behind the scenes work as well as always being there to hold me and encourage me! 

With her help, I was able to have the most perfect "Love Story" to meet my beautiful baby girl. She is the perfect person to be apart of your birth team! 

 

Thanks Lexy!!!

Lexi (AKA Alexa Nielson) was fabulous during my crazy time of tansitioning and joing the long line of mothers. 

She was quick to repsond, (sorry for waking you up at 2:00 AM), and drove a good distance to get to me in my time of need. Extremly patient with me and was very receptive to what I wanted even when I didn't know what I wanted.

Supportive with my husband as well since he had a hard time getting up a 2:00 AM. Spent more time with me then she should have after the birth to make sure everything was ok and we made sure we were taken care of.

She even took step by step notes which was nice since I have no clue what happened at one point or another, (thanks contractions you rock er, squeeze) and it was nice to get an outsiders view of the event since I wasn't in my right mind. I don't know how some Mommies give birth without so much as a peep, yesh. 

Would definitely, recommend Lexi to anyone and everyone, every mother and father who is just looking for the extra hand (even if you are seasoned parents) or if you want Superwoman involved with you all the way, Lexi is the one for you!
