Chelsea Alders

Birth Doula, Placenta Specialist and Childbirth Educator


Mom of 3, co-owner of Om Mamas Blog, Owner of Om Mamas Doulas, Labor Doula, Placenta Specialist and HypnoBirthing Practitioner. Before having children I owned and ran the largest Corporate Entertainment Agency in the U.S. for 8 years. We book over 400 events per year for companies like Nordstrom, UGG Australia, Bloomingdales, PNC Bank and Giorgio Armani. I worked/and still do with the top entertainers, artists and performers in the country to provide incredible events and better sales for these large brands. I was spending so much time and energy working and I wasn't sure how that would be sustainable once I had children. From the moment I found out I was pregnant with my first daughter, birth felt magical to me. It was a sacred space I was never aware of prior to my first pregnancy. This magical bubble filled with love, nurturing, and new beginnings was a space that I wanted to hold on to forever. I started to learn the definition of balance, I was carefully nurturing my new baby on the inside while trying to learn balance for my stress and energy on the outside. I realized I was figuring this all out and carefully molding my passion of work with my new understanding of taking care of someone other then myself. As I moved through my first pregnancy, I really wanted to know that I was doing it all “right.” I was quickly led to an onslaught of information between books, google, classes, it was all so much. I found a great Hypnobirthing class and hired a doula and that’s when everything changed. Google turned into a trusted team of professionals in my area, an incredibly knowledgeable Doula whom I could ask anything and even if she didn’t know, she led me in the right direction. Between her and an amazing team of childbirth educators, I was in such great hands and eventually had the birth I envisioned. This team of people led me through a dream birth with my daughter and 17 months later through my second birth with my twins as well and I realized the value in having caring women surrounding me. Sometimes, it wasn’t even the wealth of knowledge, but the kind voice and experience in emotional support that truly supported me. I started Om Mama’s as a place for knowledge and support for moms and families. Once this business started taking off, I realized that the world I had been doing for years with Sun Dreams Productions had given me the experience I needed for my new career as a Birth and Postpartum Doula agency owner. Since then, I have been steadily growing this business and working to make pregnancy, birth and the fourth trimester a better experience for families. I did my Doula training, completed my exams and requirements and then quickly was guided towards HypnoBirthing® and placenta encapsulation. I have a passion for plant based nutrition, gentle birth through HypnoBirthing® and aromatherapy and use all of these passions to become a better doula. Please check out my blog on for more guidance and information. I am excited for the opportunity to offer that same support to others and to be a part of your journey!

Birth Doula, Placenta Encapsulator and Photographer

Married and mom of 3 young boys. We are a Navy family currently living at JBMDL, but previously lived in San Diego where my older 2 children were born. This is also where my passion of birth and supporting women and families developed. Each one of my births have shaped me into the person I am today. My first son was born via cesarean, which in the end made me feel sad because I didn’t get the birth that I expected. Although my experience left me feeling a little broken, it brought me into a new world of natural birth and parenting that I didn’t know existed. My second and third births were amazing. I was surrounded by people who loved me, supported me, and helped me achieve the unmedicated VBAC (Vaginal Birth After Cesarean) that I desired so much! I started my birth doula journey in 2015 and have loved every minute of it. It is an absolute privilege to be invited into your sacred birth space. To provide you with resources and information so that you can make the best choices for your birth. To help you trust in your body, make you feel pampered, comfortable, and loved in the process.
