Who I Am


Hi, I’m Alisa White, owner of Prima Postpartum Services, professional postpartum doula and educator.

My journey to becoming a postpartum professional began in my high school child development class. I was fascinated with the postpartum period and how it seemed like a hugely important time in a child and mother development. I vowed to make supporting new mothers and their families my life’s work.

My passion is working with women as they transition to motherhood and I have done this in various capacities over the years from working with family centered nonprofits to volunteering with low-income parents.

It wasn’t until I gave birth to my son, that I discovered the world of postpartum doulas. Ever since then I have been hooked. First, studying childbirth education and developing a unique and customized postpartum education curriculum and then going on to train as a postpartum doula.

I am constantly adding to my education and skill set hoping to one day provide full wrap around postpartum services for all parents who need them.
