Aleecia Hodges

My name is Aleecia, I am a Birth Doula, Wife and Mother. Like most Oregon natives, I enjoy getting outdoors and going on hikes, occasionally getting away to a hot spring and spending time with my family. Something that makes my heart sing is helping people and building relationships. Childbirth is so eye opening, intertwined with all things natural and powerful. I am always amazed by birth, each one so different and uniquely gorgeous.

I believe birthwork is my calling, to be able to help and build relationships with a pregnant person and their family in order to have the best birth experience, to feel comfortable and stress free.The most important aspect ofmy work is building trust with my clients. Not only is birth a personal and vulnerable environment, but having trust will also help me advocate for my clients during labor, especially in times where they can’t advocate for themselves.

As a black woman and doula, I am passionate about supporting my community and other communities and minorities that have been discriminated against in the birthing community. As your doula, I provide my clients with evidence based facts to help equip them for their birth plan.
Knowledge, so they are well informed and supported in their decision making. Comfort, in being supported by someone that looks like them or relatable. By providing my clients with evidence based information, this helps them feel entitled to making their own decisions, consenting to their own experiences and feeling confident in protecting their autonomy.
