Meet Allison, APPA
Allison holds a BS in Elementary Education. She was raised in Cobb, went to college at KSU, and taught in Cobb County elementary schools before becoming a stay at home mom. She has been with her husband for 18 years and they have five children together- four boys (including a set of twins) and one girl. They are also licensed foster parents.
She has unofficially been in the birthing community for many years providing Doula and postpartum services, newborn care, and breastfeeding support to friends and family. She was even an overnight newborn Nanny for families while attending college. In 2016, she started focusing on creating an official career path by offering birth related services to the public, with a focus on placenta encapsulation. She has experience as a wet nurse, milk donor, with premature birth and loss, crisis pregnancies, and has been present during emergency birth situations (including Placenta Abruption and Placenta Percreta).

She also has completed a blood borne pathogens course through Biologix (which is OSHA certified and specifically designed for placenta encapsulation specialists), holds a Food Handler Certificate, and is certified in First Aid/CPR.
In her spare time, she teaches prenatal and parenting classes and enjoys hiking, reading, and cooking meals from scratch.
