We found Alicia on Doulamatch. She was the first one we interviewed, and even after we left my fiancé asked if we needed to even interview anyone else, we liked her and felt a connection instantly. Alicia is kind, calming, knowledgeable and made us feel like our opinions were valid and offered any information on anything we had questions about. We are first time parents, and she helped us know what to expect and has just been a wonderful support for both myself and fiancé. During delivery she made me feel empowered and again was just a calming strong presence that both myself and my fiancé needed. I'm extremely grateful for her and loved having her as a part of our sons birth

Alicia is a fantastic doula and a calm and comforting person. I found Alicia randomly through facebook and I'm so glad I did! For my second pregnancy, I wasn't sure I wanted a doula since I had a lackluster doula experience the first time around and was still able to give birth without pain meds--did I really need a doula? After meeting with Alicia, it became pretty clear that we wanted to give the doula thing another go and it was a great decision.

First off, I felt comfortable with her almost immediately and that's saying a lot for a skeptic like me that doesn't warm to people particularly quickly. She's just a really genuine person. Alicia was receptive to understanding my family's particular needs for support and didn't try to push her own perspective.

As for labor and preparing for labor, she had many effective and creative ideas for pain management that were new to me (even though I'd already done this once). She proactively checked in with me leading up to my due date and when I went post-dates (like I did with my first), she worked to help me stay positive that spontaneous labor would come soon and reminded me of all those things you can do to encourage labor and prepare your body. During labor she was a gentle, calming presence for me and a level headed support for my partner. I labored overnight and struggled to stay centered and focused since all I could think about was sleep...but I vividly remember Alicia gently pressing on my brow to help relax my face during and between contractions and this small, small thing had a huge impact. It reminded me to breathe, to release my apprehension, and ride the wave. This is just a simple example of how in-tune Alicia was to the situation and what my needs were--I couldn't have known before labor or during that something like that would've been helpful to me, but it was. Alicia was part of the picture perfect labor and birth of my son, and I am forever grateful.

The Covid19 pandemic hitting Travis County happened to line up with the final weeks of my pregnancy. I was so excited that we had a doula to support us this time around and was devastated that tightening visitor restrictions might prevent us from getting that in person support I really felt like I needed. Almost miraculously, we were able to have Alicia Power from Birth Power Doula Services there with us for the whole 22 odd hour ordeal. She was absolutely incredible. I handled the pain and emotional ups and downs so much better this time around. I felt so much less fearful and so much more confident in my decisions for myself. In a country, particularly a state, where our maternal outcomes are abysmal, these providers are invaluable if you can access them. Hospitals quit allowing them about a day after we were released.

Additionally she offered compassionate support in the weeks prior to L&D, helping me manage my increasing anxiety about the news cycle and create contingency plans so that I would feel empowered and supported no matter how much the rules changed. I wish that every laboring person could have someone in the room with them like Alicia.

Having babies can be unpredictable and stressful, but Alicia was supportive and helpful through my entire experience. When it came time to birth my twins, Alicia was there by my side and assured me that everything was going to be okay. I credit her a lot for getting me through my crazy pregnancy and delivery, and I recommend her to anyone. Calm, passionate, resourceful, reliable, and knowledgeable are but a few of Alicia's qualities that make her the fantastic Doula that she is.
