Birth Doula Support

As a birth support, I walk alongside you, nurturing, encouraging, honoring and praying for your family while affirming your right to informed decision-making. I believe mother and baby have the ability to enjoy a safe birth experience without intervention but also thankful for the assistance of interventions when wanted and necessary. My job as a servant/doula/support is to help families understand the process and choices so they are able to communicate with their caregivers what their wishes and plans are.

Your body was created to be able to carry and birth your baby

Essentail Oils

I believe some of the best gifts are personalized or homemade gifts. They’re unique and made with love!

Want to host an essential oils class at your home or business? There are numerous topics/themes you can choose from including: immune support, allergy relief, natural cleaning, pest control, sleep support, calming anxious feelings, pain relief and also use during pregnancy and postpartum.

We always talk about safe usage practices.

Alaina is a beautiful soul! She brought a peaceful presence to our home birth experience while taking amazing photos of treasured moments before, during, and after birth. If you are looking for someone who wants to support you from the sidelines in a way that’s graceful … Alaina is your gal! She is super discreet when doing birth photography – we saw pictures that we didn’t remember her taking because she is good at what she does with the camera. Also very thankful for the video footage she caught of our first born son and the adorable things he was saying to the baby. Get the video package so you can have some of those special moments captured. Loved that she caught us all singing happy birthday to our newborn. So if you are concerned that having a birth photographer won’t give you as intimate of an experience – think again and interview with Alaina.

Alaina has been our family photographer for years now. I think the best way to describe her work is by sharing what I emailed her after receiving our latest pictures from her of our home birth:
“Alaina, you outdid yourself again. Such touching and beautiful memories you took of us. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your gift to our family that we will cherish always. With tears in my eyes and a knot in my throat, we love and appreciate you so much. Thank you. Many hugs and kisses.”
She truly has a gift that you get to open up as you see your pictures.
