Women's Health & Hormones:


Alaya has worked with numerous women who have experienced challenged pregnancies, miscarriages, and other tragic losses to help them overcome grief, fear, conceive and carry their baby full term to give birth to a healthy baby.  She has the great pleasure of seeing these babies grow on to be wonderful children and helping their parents to achieve their dream.  As she walks the park in her beautiful home town of Ashland, she sees children of the parents who came to see her.  This is deeply meaningful for her.  

Alaya has worked extensively with women how have suffered from unfortunate and tragic experiences in pregnancy.  Most have experienced miscarriages and still births, sometimes more than one.  They are terrified to become pregnant again, and deeply concerned that this would involve another very unfortunate experience.  

Coming to see Alaya, clients feel comfortable and reassured immediately.  Her expertise, calm and loving manner all combined to put her clients at ease.  Alaya works to enhance the good, loving, protective feelings women hold, helps to validate and heal the grief and sadness that is very healthy after tragedy, so that they feel ready and more assured to become pregnant again when the time is right. 


Upon becoming pregnant, Alaya works with clients at least once per week increasing their self assurance that they will hold this baby full term.  Her clients learn how to relax deeply, send energy, nutrition, safety and love intentionally to the parts of their body that need reinforcement and alignment, and to their womb to provide a strong and safe space for their baby.  Clients communicate with their babies, and are reinforced in wise healthy choices of food and exercise, deep sleep, and are taught skills to address discomforts while complimenting the success of any medical needs at the time. 


Alaya's clients learn how to intentionally direct and manage their nervous systems, which influence and affect all systems in the body.  They learn how to remain increasingly calm and gain strength.  She leads clients through a virtual birth in a safe way with a healthy form of observation, so that they can feel how successful the birth will be, and they experience a very wonderful birthing process. 


One client exclaimed on the phone from the hospital after her delivery: "It was just as you said Alaya, everyone standing around me saying 'What a beautiful baby boy.'  Thank you Alaya.  You helped me have my dream." 

Extensive evidence suggests that many of us have suffered as a result of birthing practices that were unnatural, traumatic, and even violent. Hypnotherapy is very effective in all phases of birth from conception, pregnancy, to postpartum recovery. Bringing a healthy and happy baby into the world is a sacred and fulfilling experience for parents and the child.


Creating deep awareness and instinctual trust within the birthing experience is empowering and liberating for the mother. The process allows the mother to experience her body’s own natural anesthesia by working with the natural, pure intelligence of the body. Obtaining skills that will serve the mother and child for a lifetime, Alaya teaches partners how to eliminate the fear/tension/pain syndrome, illustrates how the mother’s body is designed to work in neuromuscular harmony with nature, and has also been proven to be very effective in turning breech and posterior positioned babies.


Alaya integrates this valuable practice with a purity of flow and empathic sensitivity to each client. This results in more calm circumstances that enable everyone, including hospital and birthing professionals, to more effectively facilitate and participate in the birthing, creating a more peaceful and pure beginning for the baby. Extensive evidence connects the birth experience with the emotional and mental health of children and adults. This points to the extreme importance of the birthing process.


With Alaya’s vast combination of expertise, pregnancy becomes an experience that is instinctual, deeply gratifying, and enriching.

"I feel really lucky that I’ve found Alaya. She is an amazing person and gifted therapist. She listens and gives me mindful advice and her soothing voice always takes me to a peaceful place. She gave me courage and strength to challenge my fertility issue. After a series of sessions, I was pregnant and gave birth to my precious son. I am not good at writing and I wish I could express my feelings better, because I want everybody to know how special you are to me, Alaya. I can’t give enough thanks to Alaya. She helped my dream come true, and I will continue seeing her."
