Hello! My name is Alana and I am thrilled and honored to be the nurse manager at Season’s Midwifery & Birth Center. I am grateful for the opportunity to be part of families’ intimate and powerful moments as they transition into parenthood.
It has always been my dream that my nursing carrier would lead me to maternal and newborn care but it wasn’t until the birth of my own son at another local birth center that I knew which care setting was my calling. The incredibly personal model of care that I received from orientation through postpartum care was so transformative for me personally that I knew I would love nothing more than to be part of that type of care for other families. My nursing background includes three years as an acute brain and spinal cord injury rehab nurse, a year specializing in neuro/joint/spine care, five years working as an Intensive Care Unit nurse, and the last two years attending over 100 out of hospital births at another local free standing birth center.
I truly enjoy assisting parents through the amazing path that is pregnancy and birth. In my other RN positions I have been blessed to work and connect with families during some of the most difficult and often sad reasons for seeking medical care, I now feel so lucky and privileged to be working with families who are seeking healthcare for the happy reason of natural birth.
In my personal life, I am the proud mother of two small boys as well as the lucky stepmom to two teenage stepsons. I’m a Colorado native, and when I’m not at the birth center I’m likely spending time with my husband, Blake, our kids and extended family.
