Merriam-Webster defines a doula as, "A person trained to provide advice, information, emotional support, and physical comfort to a mother before, during, and just after childbirth." 

​"Research shows that childbirth does go more smoothly with a doula: labor is 25 percent shorter, the need for epidural pain relief is 60 percent less and the Caesarean section rate is reduced by half."

 —Susan Gilbert

 

As A DONA certified birth doula, it has been Alaine's earnest devotion to make sure there is a doula for every woman who wants one. While completing her certification, Alaine made it her duty to educate the community on the importance of a birth and postpartum doula. She didn't stop there; the team set out to bring awareness to maternal mental health by attending the 2nd annual March for Moms 2018 in D.C. The team also hosts a Postpartum Support International (PSI) awareness day and supports the local Climb Out of Darkness event. Alaine is also a certified  Dancing For Birth Instructor, teaching the importance of movement and childbirth education in preparation for labor and birth.
