Alanna is a Newborn Care Specialist (NCS) and Postpartum Doula who works with families in Northeast Ohio to help “mother the mothers” and “baby the babies” with compassionate and evidence based care backed by years of experience.
Alanna knows that every pregnancy, birth and baby comes with unique challenges and she recognizes that the support she can offer will help to ease families through these transitions as they welcome the new members of their family home.
Alanna has supported postpartum families both professionally as an NCS/Postpartum Doula and on a volunteer basis with her local La Leche League chapter and Babywearing International chapter. In addition to this, she has four children of her own. She especially enjoys supporting parents of premature and NICU babies since she has experience with her own preemies and knows first hand about the emotional toll this can sometimes take on the entire family unit.
Alanna completed her Newborn Care Specialist training through the CAPPA (Childbirth And Postpartum Professional Association) approved program, “Newborn Care Solutions” and has plans to continue to educate herself to provide the highest standard of care to her clients.
In her down time, Alanna enjoys running and loves signing up for challenging races while her supportive husband, and children cheer her on. She and her family enjoy being involved with their church and really love spending time being active outdoors or in the community recreation center.
