Your Holistic postpartum doula
Support and classes for pregnant and postpartum parents who want a happy and healthy postpartum experience.
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?
I TAKE A HOLISTIC APPROACH WHEN IT COMES TO SUPPORTING PREGNANT AND POSTPARTUM PARENTS.
I FOCUS ON 4 MAIN AREAS IN MY WORK
- CREATING HEALTHY EXPECTATIONS ABOUT POSTPARTUM AND NEWBORN PARENTING
- PLANNING AHEAD FOR OPTIMAL RECOVERY, ADJUSTMENT AND TRANSFORMATION
- STAYING CONNECTED TO NEW PARENTS FOR THE FIRST YEAR (OR MORE!) SO THAT THEY DO NOT FEEL ALONE
- 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.
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.
