Alison fischman, MA, CD(DONA), CPM, LM
Certified Birth Doula, Certified Placenta Encapsulation Specialist, Licensed Midwife
I have a passion for people, all people, and the intimacy that exists between people on all levels. I am a social justice advocate and have committed myself and my life's work to empowerment; lifting up the voices in each of us, and letting tradition, culture, and instinct guide us. I love listening to stories, and even more so, I love being part of the creation of stories. The story of pregnancy and birth is different for each parent and each baby. What a beautiful expression of how we are all unique!
I believe in following the parent's lead, providing space for them listen to their body, and allowing them to experience the fullness and intensity of birth. I believe partners have a key role in pregnancy and the birth process, and I seek to shine a light on the inner support system that partners possess.
I am a Certified Doula through DONA International and Certified Placenta Encapsulation Specialist through Placenta Benefits Training & Certification. I am also a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM) and Licensed Midwife (LM) in Vermont, and I am excited about providing doula services in Vermont and supporting you wherever you give birth.
I am so excited to have just enrolled in a brand new online wellness course called The Art of Ayurveda: Ancient Secrets for Self Care. This is a three part learning experience, and part 1, Elements of Wellness, is available now! I have been wanting to learn more about Ayurveda and ways to implement new ritual, routine and remedies and this is totally it! If you want to join me for this course, reserve your spot now!
