Alicia Taylor, Birth Doula & Infant Feeding Specialist
Alicia is the co-owner of North Raleigh Doulas, a Triangle based birth and family support company. She has dedicated her professional life to supporting families in their journey through parenthood. Alicia’s experience includes 7 years of engaging with infants and toddlers in her role as an early childhood educator. She has provided support in various positions and organizations centered around early childhood education for over 15 years – in positions ranging from early interventionist to inclusive preschool program manager. In order to fully support families, Alicia became a Certified Labor Doula in addition to a Certified Infant Feeding Specialist. Most recently, Alicia added Certified VBAC Specialist to her credentials as a way to help clients navigate the nuances of vaginal birth after cesarean.
Alicia’s desire to support expecting and postpartum families emerged as she embarked on her parenting journey in 2016. She marveled at the various resources available throughout pregnancy. She found that support and resources became much more nuanced once baby is born and understands how that can feel overwhelming, or downright lonely, at times. As the 4th generation of birth worker in her family, she understands how important birth work is as it supports the very beginning of the family experience.
When she is not supporting families, Alicia can be found creating organic tea blends and spending time with her amazing husband and superstar kiddos.
