Aleksandra Evanguelidi LM, CPM is a Los Angeles midwife with 15 years experience. She specializes in home birth, water birth, preconception, natural birth, fertility and women’s health.
MidwiferyMidwifery translates roughly, “to be with woman.” As licensed by the Medical Board of California (the same licensing body that governs doctors) we are highly skilled, medical care providers who specialize in the preventative holistic care of pregnant women and newborns. We gain our skills by learning from master midwives and obstetricians and by attending a school that is accredited by the Medical Board of California, with our training culminating in a licensing exam. Our training is extensive and most midwives study for between three to six years with several preceptors while building their skill sets.
PreconceptionThe period before conception has the power to impact not only the experience of the prenatal period for the mother, but has the potential to impact the development of the child and the next generations to come. Roll out the red carpet for your child and prepare your body for the intentional welcoming of your child. Contact me for preconception work a minimum of 6 months prior to wanting to conceive. Cost: contact to request
Postpartum RecoveryPostpartum recovery packages include belly binding, placenta encapsulation, Ayurvedic oil preparations and nutritional consultations and are completely customizable.
Thank you for giving me my best birth experience and for just being you and putting up with me. I truly love you Aleks, you have made me grow in ways that have changed me for the better and re-opened parts of me that I thought we’re long gone. I have a long list of things that you are responsible for bringing out the change and me and am benefiting tremendously from them, just one is how much we have changed the food we put in our bodies! You will be happy to hear that we have cut out sugar, fake sugar, non organic food, any kind of soda and a whole list of crap that I can’t believe I ever put in my body! Haha! And that is just one of the gifts I received from you! I hope someday that there will be a time I am able to do so much good for you as you have my family and myself. I love you, I love you, I love you!
My husband and I wanted to have a safe, unmedicated birth. We wanted it to be a wonderful experience.In our first interview with Aleks I was sure this was possible. What she brought into our lives has left a wake of peace and strength that endures even to this day. She gently encouraged my personal growth as the steward for my baby, she listened with expert ears, guided with seasoned advice and helped me trust my body and birth. She hits the sweet spot between guide, counselor and friend. Aleks has been a witness in both births I have had. Besides my husband, I cannot imagine a person who has brought more sense and harmony to my surroundings. I am so glad she was by my side through these times. We feel lucky and full of gratitude to have been led to her.
Aleks is an amazing Midwife and woman. She is comforting, kind, insanely knowledgeable, and always a warm and calming presence. She was a part of both of my son’s births at home. One in a pool, and the other in our bathtub, as he came so fast! During my first birth there was a moment where we stopped hearing the baby’s heartbeat. He needed to come out NOW, and Aleks helped me make that happen. I never once felt scared, worried, or anything but the fact that I trusted myself and Aleks’ capable hands. She herself, is a beautiful and inspiring mother. She is always striving to learn, grow, and help women be all that they can be as she accompanies them on the incredible journey of pregnancy and childbirth. I cannot imagine my births without her. I’d have another baby just to be with her and watch her brilliance!
I was blessed to meet Aleks in 2011 when I was pregnant with my first child. She made me feel cared for, respected, seen, heard and at peace during my pregnancy and was by my side as I gave birth safelyand magically at home. She has since supported me and my growing family through two more incredible pregnancy and birth journeys. Aleks holds a special place of the highest regard in our family and has my unending and deepest gratitude for sharing with us the gift of her skills as a midwife and joining with us each time to welcome our children peacefully in to this world.
