Hi, all! My name is Alyssa Kinney.
I have always had a passion for helping others. As your doula, I will be with you every step of the way- from exploring all your options prenatally to birth and the fourth trimester. I stay up-to-date with the most current research and am constantly pursuing continuing education opportunities. I approach prenatal education, birth, and the postpartum period in a holistic manner; I make certain that the individuals and families I work with have access to evidence-based resources and information as well as support for total wellbeing- mind, body, and spirit.
I was drawn to doula work through my own pregnancy and birth experiences. I came away from my experiences transformed, empowered, and confident in my new role as a mother (and now a mother of 3).
I have two daughters, Annabelle and Caroline, a son, Brooks, and a loving husband named Chad. My family and I live in Carroll County, Maryland with a fun variety of pets. We enjoy all things outdoors including hiking, gardening, and camping, as well as simply finding peace in nature and enjoying the serenity of our backyard.
With the establishment of my own family and my academic background, I’ve discovered a passion for maternity care as well as family health and wellbeing. I pride myself in providing non-biased and inclusive care for all of the individuals and families I have an opportunity to support. I respect the diversity of birth experiences and am happy to provide judgment-free support no matter how you foresee your journey unfolding.
