The Aramaic word Haya (pronounced hi ya) was chosen to honor Alda’s heritage and give her practice a deeper respect. Haya means life in Hebrew. We are life midwives. Helping to bring in new life and providing holistic health care and wellness throughout all stages of life.
Alda comes from generations of midwives and holistic healers in her ancestral line. Knowing her lineage makes perfect sense why Alda wanted to become a “baby doctor” when she was the age of eight. Midwifery and naturopathy is in her DNA! Alda is a healing midwife. She believes birth is sacred and wants you to have a healthy pregnancy, a positive birth experience, and a smooth postpartum transition by way of skilled wise maternity care.
Life circumstances took her on a different route (but always working in healthcare), and motherhood of three path. Eventually she made it to her baby doctor (midwife) roots! Her love for supporting women and their families through birth work began in 2011 when she couldn’t deny her calling any longer.
Alda is also a teacher and writer while constantly learning through continuing education in the field of midwifery and naturopathy. She enjoys wild-crafting, paper art-crafting, rock collecting, dancing and practicing yoga. She is a beach lover at heart, but the beauty of Utah mountains and family keep her here. She has an entrepreneurial spirit with founding her own businesses and creating a childbirth method. Alda is a member of Call the Midwife Utah.
