Your Holistic postpartum doula

Support and classes for for pregnant and postpartum parents who want a happy and healthy postpartum experience.

Hey there!

I'm Alisa, a Maryland Postpartum Doula and Coach for new parents.

I help new parents create and cultivate their postpartum vision with confidence and clarity. And I am here to make sure you have the best postpartum ever. Because you deserve it!

Birth is only the beginning. Postpartum is forever.
Are you ready to step confidently into motherhood?

MY APPROACH

I TAKE A HOLISTIC APPROACH WHEN IT COMES TO SUPPORTING PREGNANT AND POSTPARTUM PARENTS.

I FOCUS ON 4 MAIN AREAS IN MY WORK

  1. CREATING HEALTHY EXPECTATIONS ABOUT POSTPARTUM AND NEWBORN PARENTING
  2. PLANNING AHEAD FOR OPTIMAL RECOVERY, ADJUSTMENT AND TRANSFORMATION
  3. STAYING CONNECTED TO NEW PARENTS FOR THE FIRST YEAR (OR MORE!) SO THAT THEY DO NOT FEEL ALONE
  4. HONORING THE BIRTHING PARENT THROUGH CEREMONIES AND RITUALS INTENDED TO RECONNECT WITH MIND BODY AND SPIRIT

MY GOALS ARE TO HELP TO FIGHT THE RISING RATES OF MATERNAL MORTALITY, PARTICULARLY IN BLACK AND BROWN COMMUNITIES, AND TO MINIMIZE THE RISKS OF PERINATAL OR POSTPARTUM MOOD AND ANXIETY DISORDER (PMAD) BY FOCUSING ON THE PHYSICAL,MENTAL AND EMOTIONAL WELLNESS OF THE BIRTHING PERSON FROM PREGNANCY TO POSTPARTUM.

MY PHILOSOPHY

IT IS MY PHILOSOPHY THAT WHEN THE BIRTHING PERSON IS NURTURED AND NOURISHED, THEY WILL HAVE LOVE AND ENERGY TO POUR INTO THEIR BABY AND GROWING FAMILY.

kind words from clients

Alisa was very warm and professional. She was available during a crucial time when I really needed an extra hand. There was no way I would’ve been able to get through the night or day without her. My five-month-old absolutely loved her! I would not hesitate in recommending her postpartum doula services to someone else. I would also hire her in a heartbeat if I ever needed her again in the future!
