My husband and I were looking for extra support to prepare us for this huge milestone in our lives— the birth of our first child. We connected with Alice immediately and felt confident that she would be able to help us have a safe and healthy delivery. Alice met with us in person at our home and provided us with a lot of resources and books in preparation for the big day. During her visits, she showed us how to effectively utilize the space in our home during early labor. She provided us with helpful tips so I could stay at home for as long as possible which was the goal. Throughout my pregnancy, she listened to our preferences and helped me to create an ideal and realistic birth plan. She was very responsive via text, phone, and email which we appreciated. On the day our daughter was born, Alice met us at the hospital with several props and aromatherapy to help me feel more comfortable and brought a copy of my birth plan to share with the healthcare team. She was also very knowledgeable about my personal preferences. In the delivery room, Alice brought a calming and supportive presence. She encouraged my husband to get involved in the labor process by providing physical and emotional support. She took a series of beautiful photos as our daughter was being born and immediately after which we will cherish forever.
My husband and I are so grateful to have Alice with us as we began this journey into parenthood. She empowered me to be able to have the birth experience that I envisioned (an unmedicated birth with minimal interventions in a hospital setting). I strongly recommend Alice. She is amazing at what she does and we would like her to be present again at the birth of our next child.
