Alicia is a successful doula agency owner, and before that made multiple six figures as a solo doula. Meredith is a Restorative Exercise Specialist (RES-CPT) with an emphasis on perinatal biomechanics. Between us we’ve attended births in over 30 hospitals nationwide, and supported hundreds of families through “physiology first” pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. Over the years we have seen fewer and fewer clients experience traumatic births, as we have discovered what they truly need from us.
Philosophically, we emphasize personal responsibility, parental autonomy, and a physiology-first approach to birth (and life). We believe that caring well for someone means being wholeheartedly honest with them, and then standing with them in love, whatever they choose.
We stand on the shoulders of giants, and we’re grateful to be friends and collaborators with so many people whose birth work and thinking we admire. In fact, that’s one unique thing about us: our network of really smart friends and mentors, who will soon be yours too! Check out our recent Trusting Birth summit lineup.
We’re both mothers, women of faith, women of the world, women of the mountains, memoir readers, researchers, lovers of the arts, real foodies, homeschoolers, homebirthers, and easy friends with just about anyone.
