Aida Alfonzo is a DONA certified Birth Doula and Breastfeeding Counselor. Her practice as a birth worker stems from her early interest in labor and birth that was nourished through her higher education in Human Development, as well as her own pregnancy and birth.
Aida instinctively uses touch as a form of comfort, as well as her calming presence to help her clients find their way through their birth. Her training in comfort techniques and knowledge of acupressure and the pregnant persons anatomy and physiology creates a well-rounded practice.
Aida brings forth her passion and positive energy to support people with all birth preferences, especially in those moments when challenges occur, and things unfold unexpectedly. She is an extra pair of hands, a familiar face and the positive energy needed during pregnancy, birth and postpartum.
Aida is a New York native, living with her son in Sunset Park, Brooklyn.
