Shannon Alexander received her Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Oregon and then went on to complete her EMT-Basic certification. When pregnant with her first child, she prepared for birth using the Bradley Method. Four babies later, Shannon has become a passionate advocate of education and being an informed consumer of medical care.
Shannon is a DONA International Certified Birth Doula as well as a certified Dr. Sears Pregnancy Health Coach and is pleased to be able to provide her clients with information on optimal pregnancy wellness.
With a background in un-medicated birth, Shannon has knowledge of a variety of comfort measures and techniques to reduce labor stress and manage pain. It is her desire as a doula to create the best birth experience for YOU, based entirely on your labor and birth preferences, with the support of your caregiving team.
In her “regular life”, Shannon is a busy mom of four amazing children, DONA International Spirit Fund Chairperson, a member of the Arizona State Board of Health Doula Advisory Committee, an HOA Board Member, and active in her children’s schools and the community. For fun, she and her family enjoy camping, doing anything outdoors, and being around water wherever they can find it in sunny Tucson, Arizona!
