I a DONA Certified Birth Doula, Hypnobirthing Practitioner and Mother of three boys (including twins). I was drawn to the wonder of natural birth during my first pregnancy, when after extensive research, I chose to give birth at home. I have been active as a doula since my twin pregnancy when I experienced that a high-risk hospital birth can be equally empowering with a supportive team. I have had the honor of attending a diversity of births (unmedicated and medicated vaginal births, twin births, first time mothers, epidurals, VBACs) in homes, hospitals, and birth centers.
I am passionate about providing access to information to increase self-advocacy and have been counseling families for over 15 years. I also teach guided Breathwork sessions for emotional healing and trauma release.My lifelong study of movement and embodied spiritual practices inform my work with expecting parents. I believe in holding space for remembering the body's intuitive wisdom to give birth (with and without medical assistance). It brings me great joy to accompany families on their journey

Having worked with many Hypnobirthing couples, I have witnessed, time and time again, how this technique helps the expecting couple approach labor and birth with confidence and ecstatic awareness. The result...a positive, peaceful, gentle and beautiful birthing experience for mom, partner and baby.
My name is Alicia and I would be delighted to support you in the amazing journey of childbirth. My work is greatly influenced by my studies in Body-Mind Centering, as well as my background in anatomy, kinesiology, physiology, and embryology education.
I am a DONA certified birth doula, a certified Breastfeeding Counselor, and a DONA trained postpartum doula. I have years of experience as a yoga therapist, specializing in prenatal and postpartum yoga, and am skilled in the use of breathing, acupressure, massage and Rebozo techniques for labor and delivery.
I have worked with women giving birth at home, birth centers, and hospitals all around the NYC area. I have supported a wide variety of birth experiences, including unmedicated, medicated, high-risk pregnancies, VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean), HBAC (home birth after cesarean), breech presentation, and C-sections. I am fully bilingual and at ease communicating in both English and Spanish.
