Kathleen Leathers & Alice Turner

Alice Turner is the ultimate birth expert. With more than 13 years of experience as a doula and seven as a Lamaze certified childbirth educator, she has supported more than 200 births and knows the power of a prepared partner. While working with dads during a couples’ childbirth class, Alice was surprised by how much more engaged and inquisitive they were than in the traditional group setting. She talked with doctors, midwives and other doulas and quickly identified the need for a convenient way to prep partners for their support role during labor and birth. Realizing birth partners would opt for a couple of hours on their laptop over a book or all-day class, Alice teamed up with fellow doula Kathleen Leathers to create an online childbirth class for the other half. She developed a tailored curriculum, filmed it with dads in a local brewery and SupportingHer was born!

Prior to becoming dads’ favorite doula, Alice received a Biomedical Engineering degree from Vanderbilt University with a minor in Computer Science and spent her early professional life working as a database programmer in healthcare. She lives in Atlanta, GA with her high school sweetheart Rob and their four kids.
