Hi! I’m Ali, the face behind The Joyful Birth. I am a wife, Mama, Christian, Las Vegas native, and the list goes on. I am a birth enthusiast, who truly enjoys helping families plan for and welcome new little ones into this world.
I am a birth doula, placenta specialist, and birth photographer, here to serve you and your support people. As a doula, I help you plan for your birth, practice comfort measures, create a birth plan, support you through your labor, and help you with lactation if necessary.
I am specifically a christian Doula, and provide faith based birth services. I believe every woman should have the chance to have a Doula, to be supported through her pregnancy and birth. I love helping women feel empowered in their bodies, and helping provide the support in whatever form she may need. The work Doulas do is so impactful, and truly is my calling.
In my daily life, I am a wife to an amazing husband. Together we raise two children and serve as our church’s Teen Leaders.
I’m also a student midwife, and am proud to serve the families of southern Nevada.
I believe the best doulas are intuitive to the needs of others. My goal as a doula is to ensure everyone on your birth team is supportive and united around your agenda and needs for birth. I am focused on your physical and emotional wellness, the physiologic needs of your labor, your dignity and respect. I find success in forging relationships between all members of the birth team in order to center care around my clients in a collaborative way. As a birth doula, I believe in my responsibility to give you the factual information I have acquired about birth and maternity care practices in our local context. I will speak with truth, honesty, and compassion as I strive to offer gracious and nuanced perspectives.
