Sacred Birth @ the Hospital

Posted on Dec 12, 2014

 During some late night research about doulas I stumbled across Alyssa’s website and emailed her for more information. I can honestly say that was one of the best decisions I ever made. Alyssa is one of the nicest, most approachable, and caring people that I have ever met and my husband and I thank our lucky stars that she was part of our birth team. This was my first pregnancy and after doing some research and talking to other moms about their birth experiences, I knew I wanted to try for a natural birth and labor at home as much as possible. When discussing these goals with Alyssa, she always listened very carefully and really helped me to feel justified in my...

Birth of Mila Ferro

I recommend ANY expecting mama to have the assistance of a doula. We had no idea how important Alyssa was going to be during our birth experience. I met her through prenatal yoga class, as she was the instructor. I was intrigued by her expertise and gentleness. After researching her site, and shared who she was with my partner, Ryan. We agreed to do prenatal classes with her. She was wonderful, tailoring the syllabus to meet our needs. We had individualized classes for more attention, and she came to us so we could remain in the comfort of our own home. We learned valuable information that we used the very day of my labor. On March 5, I had my first true contractions at...

Love for our Doula

Posted on Dec 12, 2014

Our experience with Alyssa was really outstanding. She not only educated my husband and I and acted as pillar of support during labor & delivery, but she also cultivated a friendship with us that we truly cherish. My husband was skeptical about hiring a doula, since he had never heard of the role before and thought it was kind of a scam job seeing as both his parents are physicians. After our experience with Alyssa, he holds a strong stance that every birth, ESPECIALLY hospital births, should be supported by a doula. I wanted a natural birth, and I got it thanks to her support. But honestly, I agree with my husband, that Alyssa would have been an integral role in...

Transfer at 32 weeks!

Posted on Oct 3, 2014

I decided to see Michelle late in my pregnancy, I was about 32 weeks.  It was a last minute decision, but one of the best decisions I’ve ever made!  Michelle is such a caring person.  I’m so thankful I had her through this!  The week before I had my son I had prodromal labor every day I would get contractions that would lead to nothing.  It was exhausting not only physically, but emotionally.  The day before I gave birth I had my 38 week check up with Michelle.  She knew what I’ve been going through and knew I was exhausted.  That’s when I had a heart to heart with her and I just CRIED AND CRIED!  She sat there with me and listened and gave me...

“She’s got this beautiful aura.  As soon as you meet her you can see how sweet and kind of a person she is.  She was there with me at the beginning of my labor, she supported and encouraged me.” -R.N
