  • Alyssa Krokenberger

    Birth Doula Profile Meet Alyssa Krokenberger Birth Doula Hi, my name is Alyssa and I’m a DONA trained birth doula based in the Rochester Ny area. I am a wife and mother of two wonderful children. After my first birth I became hooked on all things birth, lactation, and advocacy surrounding both. I had two beautiful birth experiences with doulas. After giving birth I couldn’t understand how anyone does it without a doula! I’ve always had a passion for helping others and I want to be there to help with, what for most people, is the hardest thing they will have to do in their life. Every person deserves an opportunity to have the birth they want and an advocate to help them achieve their goals. I would love to help you #ROCyourbirth!

  • Mabel Primus, CLC

    Postpartum Doula Profile Meet Mabel Primus, CLC Postpartum Doula and Lactation Counseling Hi! I’m Mabel Primus. I’m a postpartum doula and certified lactation counselor (CLC) serving the Rochester area. I am very passionate about providing support to new families and especially to moms (and birthing parents) as they do a life transition that is often way more difficult than expected. In traditional societies, laypeople were very familiar with birth, breastfeeding, and community support during the childbearing year. Today, many parents go into the postpartum months never having witnessed these first newborn weeks and without nearly enough support. We tend to focus on the birth process (for good reason!) but don’t know how to adequately plan for the harrowing, sleepless, and altogether unique weeks and months following the welcoming of a new baby into the home. I am honored that you are considering inviting me into the sacred space of your home during this exciting time in your family’s life. I look forward to witnessing this part of your journey. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions! mabelprimusdoula.com Mabel Primus Doula 5857641651 mabelprimusdoula@gmail.com
