Elizabeth Aldrich is a DONA International trained doula and a Board Certified Massage Therapist with specialized training in Aromatherapy

 

While her husband was serving in the Navy, Elizabeth found a passion in empowering women with their health and wellness. It began in 2007 when she graduated from Massage therapy school. That eventually evolved into aromatherapy and then doula services.  

 

As a doula, her goal is to help support the whole family through education along with physical and emotional support, so the family can advocate for themselves with confidence. She has advanced training in perinatal and therapeutic massage modalities, infant massage as well as specialized training in essential oil application and education.  During Elizabeth’s free time she loves the outdoors, playing board games with her family, experimenting with new recipes and crafting.

Sarah Crouch is an IDI certified doula.

Ashley Atkisson is a trained Postpartum Doula  through Childbirth International (CBI). 

After her own struggles during the postpartum period she wanted to help provide the practical and emotional support so vital to new mothers and families. By being a judgement free sounding board, a willing set of extra hands and an advocate for families as they navigate the early days of parenthood. 

Ashley is a wife and mother of two. When she isn't supporting families she is home, reading, gardening, enjoying a good cup of coffee, or hiking with her family.

Sarah Crouch is an IDI certified doula.

 

Sarah approaches her work from a very unique background as a professional Marathon runner and long-distance running coach. Her educational background is in Sports Psychology, and she's spent the past ten years studying and learning from the human body’s response to prolonged challenge and effort. During those long, hard miles she's explored how our bodies and minds perceive and experience pain, and how to rewire that experience into a positive, empowering outcome!

 

She's found a great translation from athletics to birth work as she guides women through the incredible marathon that is childbirth and help them to cross that finish line with a sense of accomplishment and joy that should be part of every woman’s birth experience. She has always had a passion for fertility, pregnancy and childbirth and firmly believes that every expectant mother deserves a caring advocate that will do their utmost to make her birth wishes come true. While she offers many comfort measures for labor and delivery, she believes her most important tools are her heart and hands as she guides, encourages and uplifts.
