“Alyssa was my childbirth educator, birth doula, and postpartum doula. Alyssa was very attentive to the other members of my care team and throughout my whole labor. She helped me ask questions to the care provider, nurses, and staff during my pregnancy, labor, and postpartum period - questions I would not think of to do on my own . If it weren’t for Alyssa, I would not have remained calm throughout my labor. She helped me with my birth plan and assisted me in achieving my wishes. Alyssa truly goes above and beyond, especially with helping out outside of the birth. The techniques suggested by her were significantly helpful to me in handling both the physical and emotional aspects of labor.”

"When I first met Alyssa, I thought she would just be around for my delivery. I was very impressed with how thoughtful, supportive, compassionate, and readily available she was for me. She basically was around for anything I needed. She was there for me from beginning to the end, and then some.
Alyssa was willing to come out and see me when it wasn't so easy for me. She gave me great information on childbirth. Alyssa even taught me about things I didn't learn in the childbirth class I enrolled in at the hospital. I loved how she took the time with me and never made me feel rushed to answer all my questions whether by phone, text, or even email. She even went to tour the hospital with me, and gave me her insight on what to look for, and other possible options out there.
When the big day came, I was so grateful to have Alyssa next to me throughout my labor and delivery. Her calming presence and techniques kept me away from the epidural I wished to stay away from. She was my rock of support. She made sure to be that special friend that knew just how to make everything right for me. She applied acupressure, calmed me down during contractions, and reminded me to drink water when I didn't want anything going down my throat. She suggested I try different positions for laboring when all I wanted was to stand. I couldn't have done it without out her!
She took pictures of when the baby was born. A few days after I had the baby, she came out with food, diapers, and clothes and made sure I was ok and answered all my first time mommy questions. A week or so after I had the baby, she went out of her way to help me with a few things I needed that I couldn't easily do myself, which was so thoughtful.
I could never thank Alyssa enough for everything she did for me. She is truly an angel and helped me so much."

“When our daughter was born, we searched for a caregiver that would allow us to get out once in awhile for dates and connections. Unfortunately, we found it surprisingly difficult to find someone that was reliable, experienced (especially with severe allergies), available when needed, and especially someone our daughter would connect with and be comfortable with. It took a few years of trial and error (and spans where we felt too discouraged to try). But then we found Alyssa and it was obvious from the first moment we met her that this was going to work. Her warmth and interest in our daughter and the quick and easy connection they made eased our minds and hearts immensely. Her availability and dependability has made our lives much easier and has allowed us the opportunities to get out for hikes in the afternoons, or movies in the evenings knowing that our daughter is well-cared for and happy.”

"Alyssa Megeath is an amazing and unique person. She adds creativity, excitement, enthusiasm, and joy to everything she does. She will give you one hundred percent. She will bring an incredibly thoughtful presence to your pregnancy, birth, and postpartum care. I had the pleasure of her attentive care and dedication with our patients when she worked at our acupuncture clinic (Acupuncture Clinic of Boulder, Inc.). She will take the time to get to know you and make sure you have the birth experience you want.
She is also well-versed on evidenced based medicine. She will listen to you, find out your needs, and bring the information you need to feel comfortable in your birth process. Hire her, you will be very happy you did!"

"We used Alyssa as a sibling doula when we had our second child. As my husband and I are both transplants, we needed help to know that our first born was in good hands during L&D. Alyssa responded to us immediately and was at our home in an hour. She took great care of our son, and I didn't have to worry about him and could focus on baby #2. She even brought us a care package when we were all home!
She seems very passionate about what she does and was definitely a big help for our family!"
