Having ascended my own mountains of motherhood, I hope to act as a trail guide to help you reach the summits of your own. Childbirth takes you way beyond the alpine zone, and having the right team of backpackers at your side, will enable you to enjoy the journey. The postpartum period may feel like the long descent from that grand peak where you felt as if you reached the very heavens to bring forth your child. Let the descent be peaceful and joyous, restful, and celebratory. You may have obstacles to tackle on the way down, and the valley might seem so bland in comparison. Having someone who understands the hills and valleys of motherhood, as well as evidence based care for mama, child and family, can offer insight into all the highs and lows of childbearing, and help you acclimate to parenthood with each new baby. I am passionate about family life, especially the years that encompass childbirth, and would be honored to backpack that journey with you.
As a professional, I stay educated through self-study, certification programs, and workshops, in efforts to bring you savvy evidence based care and information. In this case, the old adage “knowledge is power” is absolutely true. You want to be informed so that you can make those medical and practical decisions that align with your birth and parenting wishes. I am here to help you dive into all of that information in a very personalized way so that you will be well prepared to make those decisions as they arise. I will also be there throughout, to help you remember and to encourage clear and peaceful communication. Be empowered.
The physical and mental support a doula can provide is wonderful. Socially and emotionally, a doula has been proven to provide the best mix of familiarity and professionalism to encourage satisfaction in childbirth and postpartum. Being that person is an absolute honor that I take to heart. It brings me such joy to be there for women in this way, and while I serve cheerfully, I also “hold space” with a joyful, loving, and peaceful presence as well.
My business name, Angel’s Landing Maternity Aid (ALMA), comes from a desire to surround each family, birthing mama, and precious new life with angels who minister with the balm of heaven. As well as people and organizations in the community, who are great resources for families, offering different insight and practical help. Through prayer I ask the angels to intercede for you and minister to you. By building relationships with the greater community, I hope to connect you to more assistance as needed. I hope to wrap your family in God’s tender care, pregnancy-preschool.
Providing a sounding board for you regarding childbirth and family life is a thrill, helping families thrive is a dream!
