MEET ALDA

me 

Hello, my name is Alda Mills. In addition to being a mom, I am a student midwife, a preconception, and postpartum doula, a birth coach, childbirth educator, and Emotion Code® practitioner. I love assisting women throughout all stages of their childbearing year! 

I enjoy working with women through any past trauma, fears and limiting beliefs they have while they are trying to conceive, while prenatally and during their postpartum and beyond days. I am passionate in helping women achieve their goals! 

I am a widow and the mother of three beautiful ones, two boys and a girl. I had an epidural with my first birth, my second was born naturally and my third baby was born by cesarean section.

I offer well being support and encourage women to connect with their body, mind, heart and soul as they draw upon their own powerful essence and personal strengths. I understand the significant role that pregnancy and birth plays and the impact it has on lives. I create a serene and positive atmosphere and provide a calming presence.

I’m a beach girl at heart and chose to live in San Diego, California.  I had the opportunity to attend school while being there. I earned a degree at Mesa College and moved back to Utah a few years after. I worked as a recreation director in a rehabilitation, long term care, and hospice center. I truly thought that therapeutic recreation was my chosen career until I had my last baby. Her birth changed my path and ignited my childbearing year passion!

I love the season of pregnancy and I enjoy providing informational, physical, spiritual and emotional assistance by offering support before, during and after birth. It is an honor to assist women and families throughout this sacred, sensitive and miraculous time. I respect and adore the families that I serve. I would love to meet you and congratulations on your pregnancy!
~Alda M.

Happily serving women and families professionally, since 2012.

Attributes:

I believe it is important for me to obtain continuing education and training for life long learning and being able to provide excellent services. I want women & their families to have current evidence based information allowing them to make their own informed choices.

I provide beneficial techniques to enhance birth preparations, labor experiences and postpartum days. I attend conferences, trainings and workshops that award CEU’s, contributing to my knowledge & skills in advanced childbirth modalities.

I worked in Healthcare under the direction of physicians and along the sides of nurses for many years. Therefore, I understand the hospital system well enabling me to help families navigate the medical model of care if they choose to give birth in a hospital. I can give facts and information allowing parents to make informed choices and decisions for their own empowerment.
