#8 – Alice Turner: SupportingHer

Ryan interviews Alice Turner. Alice is the creator of SupportingHer. 

SupportingHer is an easy way to learn all you need to know, at your own pace, in less than two hours from your computer or phone. You can pass on the boring books and all-day classes and be confidently ready for the big day.

With more than 15 years of experience as a doula and nine as a Lamaze certified childbirth educator, Alice has supported more than 300 births and knows the power of a prepared partner.
