My name is Alex Huston and I am passionate about caring for and encouraging new families in their parenting journey. I am a Postpartum Doula. I specialize in breastfeeding, newborn care and Breath Control Therapy. With all my skills combined, I can help families have a more comfortable and knowledgeable start in the early developmental stages with their new baby.
As a proud descendant of the Scheuerman family of the Duwamish Tribe from the traditional land of the Coast Salish People, becoming a professional Postpartum Doula felt like a calling more than a choice. Once I completed my training I started adding more valuable tools to help serve the families.
Becoming a Lactation Specialist to better care for mothers and babies in this sacred time. I want to help the medical system value the importance of the mother-baby time and the first few hours of life. Supporting mothers start to breastfeeding gently and with the knowledge to create the best future for all families and communities.
As a Breath Control Therapist, I work with people to restore the traditional breath. Breathing is the foundation of mental and physical health. With this work we can make the mental, physical, emotional and spiritual health of our communities better, stronger and more resilient.
Breath Control Therapy has changed my family's life and I am looking forward to helping many more.
I am based on the traditional land of Snuneymuxw First Nation People (aka Nanaimo) on beautiful Vancouver Island in British Columbia an I look forward to meeting you and your new family.
