Nourished Roots Doula Services: Deanna Alves

Services Offered: Birth Doula, Postpartum Doula

Deanna’s journey into birth-work began a few years ago when she read an article about the importance of Doulas while working as an Assistant English Teacher in Spain. This was her introduction to the role of a Doula as she was not aware this support even existed. Feeling deeply inspired, she moved back to Canada to pursue this calling as she has always had a strong desire to nurture and help others.

She offers heart-centered care to birthers and families as well as; provides tools to help birthers empower themselves and heal during this sensitive time. She believes that the birth and postpartum period is one of the most important times in a persons life and how a birther is treated during this time will impact them for years to come. As an Ayurvedic Postpartum Doula, her focus is primarily nourishing the birther by using the healing and rejuvenation practices based in the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda. In her practice, she incorporates the variety of holistic healing modalities she has learned over the years including Ayurveda, Herbalism, meditation and Reiki.
