Hello, my name is Alla Irwin. I am a certified birth and postpartum doula living in San Francisco. I am trained to provide support before, during and after birth. As a mother of two children, I understand how important support is during such an intense, vulnerable, emotional and exciting time. If you are considering hiring a doula, I would be happy to meet you for a short interview.
I will be with you continuously from the moment I arrive (usually in active stage of labor) through the birth of a baby and a few hours after.
As a doula I do not perform any medical procedures, I am there to support Your needs and wishes, to do my best to help you with discomfort management using massage, encouraging words, reboso, aromatherapy etc., to make sure that you and your partner are nurtured and as rested as possible to meet your baby.
No matter what kind of birth you are planning: home birth or hospital birth,
I will be there to support Your goals.
