I am so happy you are here! Explore the website to find out if Genesis is the right fit for your birth journey.

Meet Ilana, your doula, educator, and ally.


"I believe in empowering families through proper evidence-based education. If my families do not go into the birth room feeling confident, capable, and educated they are not able to accomplish what they set out to do, which means I have not accomplished what I set out to do for my community, and what kind of ally is that?"

-Ilana Omae, Genesis Birth Allies

 Ilana is a fully trained doula and childbirth educator who received her education through Childbirth International, Birth Advocacy Doula Training, and Women's Choice Perinatal Services. She understands the importance on continuing education, as there is always new information to soak in. She belongs to Evidence-based birth as a pro member keeping her up to date on the latest studies surrounding childbirth. Ilana is also a lactation counselor and understands the importance of supporting and educating the breastfeeding individual as it is crucial to long-term breastfeeding outcomes.


After giving birth herself, Ilana felt there was an important figure missing for her, and many women when it comes to the perinatal period. That is when the lightbulb went off, "become a birthworker!" she thought. Ilana knows first hand the misinformation, no information, and an information overload surrounding pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum. She feels called to make sure no other birthing person goes into pregnancy feeling like her and many other people have. That is why genesis was founded, to create space for birthing people, to know they are not alone, have options, are heard by their care team, and their bodies respected.


Genesis Birth Allies would be honored to be considered to be a part of your birth journey!
