Founder-owner of Born This Way Doula Services Alicia Riddlebarger is a ProDoula Certified Labor Doula, whose distinguished career sets her apart from other doula business owners. Not only is she a Certified Labor doula with years of real-world experience as the birthing parent of three children, but she has been dedicating her life for almost three decades to the safety, health and welfare of families as a radiologic technologist. These connections with patients have laid the foundation for Alicia’s relationships with birthing parents today. Since the birth of her youngest son, her passion for birth and families continued to call her to doula work. This is what led to the creation of Born This Way Doulas, the home to a diverse team of doulas that share her mission and provide exceptional encouragement, comfort and motivational support. Alicia's mission is to give the unbiased, unconditional, unapologetic birth support each family needs and deserves to truly feel validated and empowered by their choices.
