Nurturing Families in New York City through Prenatal, Birth, and Postpartum Supports

I would highly recommend Becky Alford for doula support. She is calm, collected, and warm and always maintains a professional focus. She is up to date on evidence based birth practices, newborn care, and lactation education, and provides new families with nonjudgmental support. I would recommend her services to anyone seeking an experienced and highly competent birth or postpartum doula.

Becky was incredibly helpful and caring following the birth of my first baby. We struggled with supply and latch issues and her depth on knowledge and her gentle demeanor are exactly when every new mom needs. She has a natural instinct for helping new moms; without asking she knew exactly when to check in and always had a new idea to try. She gave me the confidence and support to keep breastfeeding even when mother nature seemed to have given up.

You would think by my second child I would have had parenting a newborn down but I would not gotten through the first few weeks with my daughter without Becky's help. From providing easy, natural treatments for sore nipples to offering suggestions for extending naps to giving advice for handling jealous older siblings, Becky is a tremendous resource for overwhelmed parents. Her calm, gentle manner, patience and enthusiasm (I have never met someone so eager to assist with even the most minor baby-wearing issues) transformed days that would have been spent in a constant state of near-tears into some of the most peaceful memories of my parenting years.
