Birth Doula Intern Aleida VanderBrug

Birth Doulas - Trained Labor Support Professionals
Hello!  My name is Aleida and I am a wife and mama to two beautiful girls. I have a deep passion for education and find great joy and purpose in supporting people through the ups and downs that come along with their unique journey through pregnancy, labor and delivery, and postpartum. My own journey through pregnancy and birth and into motherhood has reignited a passion I have always had for birth, which is what led me to begin my training as a birth doula.

As a doula, it is my hope that the parents I work with feel supported, educated, and empowered through their pregnancy, labor and delivery, and postpartum period, whether I am supporting them through their first pregnancy or third. At the core of my passion for doula work is a firm belief in the innate abilities of the human body. As a VBAC mama myself, I have a special passion for supporting others who are wanting a vaginal birth after cesarean.

In my free time you will find me hanging out with my husband and girls playing outside, dancing around the house, or taking it easy with some good books. I love to cook, bake, and check out the best restaurants in town. I love a good laugh and spending time with family and friends.
