Meet the Doula
Inspiration & Vision
Hello my name is Alexa Hughes. I am an aspiring Certified Nurse Midwife as a student of Galen Nursing schooI. I have always been infatuated with birth work. Inspired by the old school show "Birth Day" on TLC, I set my goal to become an OB/GYN and bring Louisville its 1st Birth Center. As I perused the career I realized the role of an OB/GYN is not as personable nor involved in both labor/ birth as I would like to be. I started to explore other ways to support women through such a miracle. I found Pro-Doula, the Leading Edge Certification Organization of Birth Workers, became a Pre-Certified Labor Doula. I have fallen in love and beyond eager to join the birth companion community!
My vision is to grow into my craft, become a Full Spectrum Doula and Certified Nurse Midwife. During that time I hope to gain experiences and connect with people that would also like to see a Birth Center here in the Ville! First or not I want Baby Boomers to be a place that inspires a society fearless of birth, an atmosphere exhibiting deep understanding of birth, non judgmental support to every desired birth experience, and provide child/ birth education. I want to hold a space for families to apply their cultural birth traditions as well. Please keep an eye out as Baby Boomers will be adding more services as quickly as possible. When you check back do not be surprised to see a new service. Feel free to reach out at any time!
