Sweet Embrace

Ali Sugarman

Boulder, Denver, Golden, Nederland, Evergreen, Idaho Springs


Ali found her love for working with women a few short years ago after having several years of holistic training (reiki, reflexology, and yoga). From years of watching movies and t.v. shows where birthing a baby is made to be a tremendously horrible medical event, she wants to bring awareness about the natural processes of labor and birth. Women have been supporting other women through childbirth for centuries, and Ali believes this is an essential part of the physical, emotional, and spiritual process of labor. Empowerment, mindfulness, and nurturing presence are some of the key roles that Ali plays as a doula.

Doula Philosophy

My holistic health background allows me to incorporate and honor the mind-body-spirit connection into my practice, while simultaneously respecting allopathic medicine and all it has to offer. Whatever your path and preferences, I am honored to be a part of the magic of this season. I believe that birth is natural and normal and that our bodies are primed for it. That being said, birth is unpredictable and I aim to educate my clients about the numerous possibilities that could take place. My primary goal is to reduce fear and create safe, peaceful environments for the transition from womb to world.

Ali was a godsend to my birthing experience!

Having her as my doula was so essential, I couldn’t have made a better decision to have her by my side during such an intense and profound part of my life. She made herself extremely available to me all throughout our time together. She was present, loving, and reassuring. She would show up for our sessions with all kinds of information and tools to utilize for my pregnancy and postpartum care. During my pregnancy, she offered reiki and reflexology services that were extremely beneficial to my wellbeing. Her role during my birth was obviously the most important. I ended up having to transfer to the hospital from the birthing center and she supported me and stood by my side for the whole thing. During my postpartum period, she made us delicious food and took care of the baby while I got things done around the house. I HIGHLY recommend her services and commend her on being truly connected to her work!
