Happy New Year 2019


Resolutions. Goals. Mantras. 

This is the third year in a row that our family has chosen a mantra, a theme, to focus on and carry us throughout the new year. 

Our mantra this year is “faith.”

This word was spontaneously chosen by my daughter, while we were out Christmas shopping. It’s perfect with what is required of me and my children this year. 

Faith (noun) – complete trust or confidence in someone or something. -New Oxford American Dictionary

As pregnant women we put trust in our care providers, our Midwives, our doctors. We have faith that they are competent and have our best interest in mind. 

If they do not, I hope you seek out a different provider. You are under no obligation to stay. You deserve the best care possible. Go with your gut feeling. Trust your intuition. 

May 2019 bring you faith in your abilities as you obtain your dreams, goals and desires. 

Best Wishes for 2019! -Alda

CHRISTMAS WISHES 2018


Today I reflect on past Christmas celebrations and family traditions. The ones I grew up with and the new traditions that I have created and woven into mine. 

I have been blessed with positive Christmas memories, which I am grateful.

I reflect on sadness and sorrow for those who did not or currently don’t have a positive family life. 

Therefore the holidays are lonely, dark, scary, unsafe and even dreadful. 

I understand. 

My friend chose to end his life on Christmas Day 2012. He was alone. I felt his anguish and grief. Deep depression with no will to live. 

Today I honor him and you. 

May the babies that are born on this Christmas Day receive the spirit of Santa. May they share that light with others. 

May you get the support that you need and be surrounded in positivity, the spirit and light of Christmas. 

With Much Christmas Love, Alda

Winter Solstice Greetings 2018


I am not a winter girl, but I greet this winter solstice with gratitude. I have found that it’s important for to me to accept the seasons that we are in. 

I prefer warm tropical weather, but I live in Northern Utah. It’s cold here with freezing temperatures, however the high temp today was 46 degrees. I’ll take it! 

The temperature as I write this, is 36 degrees. While raining right now it is expected to turn to snow. If it does, that would be a splendid winter solstice greeting, northern Utah style!

May the babies that decide to arrive on this day, winter solstice, be greeted by gentle loving hands. 

May this winter season bring you warmth and cozy surroundings with serenity and peace.

If my wishes are not your circumstances, may you be presented with the resources and things that you need. May safety and comfort be within reach.

With much winter solstice love! —Alda

🌸Happy Mother’s Day! 5.13.18

I wish all of you good mamas a beautiful day! I know that some of you grew up without your biological mom, some that weren’t there due to their own inabilities, and mothers that were abusive. For this I’m sorry. I send you pure love. 

Luckily, my mom has always been there for me. My mom is a good woman, a strong woman. She endured much as she supported us. Working two jobs during Christmas seasons to provide for us. She made sure we were taken care of and still does to this day. 

Thankfully, I inherited her work ethics among her many positive traits. I love you mom! 

May you celebrate the good mothers  in your life! May you have peace and understanding, even heal from the damage if the mothers in your life were downright awful. 

❄️Winter Solstice❄️


It never fails that I get caught driving in the first hardcore snowfall of the season. Last night was no different.

Even though the mountain pass drive was treacherous and both hands were on the wheel, I’m grateful that I was able to deliver some Christmas gifts to my daughter and grandbabies (I have two). I played Santa in true “flying” through the snow fashion!

May this Solstice bring comfort and  safety; may you honor this winter season. ❄️

Lots of Love, Alda Mills💙

MEMORIAL DAY 2017

Remembering & holding space for those who gave with selfless bravery, you are missed. Legacy  impacts your family, make it a purposeful one. 


Alda G. Mills, Synergy Baby Doula 

Is it really a happy Mother’s Day?

How are you honoring this day?

You’ve made a huge sacrifice to bring your little one(s) into this world!

Some women may have had an easy pregnancy, labor and birth. For some, breastfeeding may have gone easily and smoothly.

For others, they have dealt with excruciating morning sickness, extreme hormonal changes, body image grievances, difficult nursing experiences and pregnancy that, unfortunately, resulted in a loss. 

For some mamas their labor may have started out like their written dream birth plan, but then quickly turned into a horror story nightmare resulting in birth trauma. 

Some may relish motherhood and some may suffer from postpartum depression. 

Some may long to meet their biological mother and will never get the chance. Some may wish they have never met their biological mother. 

Some grew up in love and luxury, some grew up in hate and violence. 

For today, I will set my own birth traumas aside. I grew up with a mom who had a sudden change in plans, but did the very best she possibly could give her children, due to our circumstances. Over the last two years, my mom and I have developed a refreshing understanding of each other. We have spent many nourishing hours together developing a deeper love. For this I’m grateful. 

Whatever memories this day brings for you, I honor you and I hold space for you in my heart. 

But, for today, I hope you find peace on this dedicated day honoring mothers. 

I wish you beautiful mamas a day filled with lots of love and pampering. May it be a day of relaxation! If it isn’t a day of joy, please reach out, you’re not alone. 

Sending you lots of love! -Alda Mills
