Becky Alford is a birth and postpartum doula and doula trainer who certified in 2000 with DONA and is dual-certifying with Doula Trainings International. She is also a Certified Lactation Counselor. She brings a wealth of experience in the field, having supported hundreds of women through their lactation journeys and early mothering days, homebirths, birth center births, hospital births, VBACs, high risk pregnancies, and cesareans. She is a Reiki Master and was also an elementary educator focusing on Autism Inclusion for 10 years with the NYC Department of Education, which reinforced her calm demeanor and ability to provide space for people in the midst of emotional or physical intensity.

Becky has a special professional interest in promoting family centered cesareans and believes that by looking for ways to humanize and re-imagine the surgery one birth at a time we will be one step closer to making family centered cesareans the norm for cesarean births in NYC.
