Gwen Alderks

Business: New Life Birth Services

“It is my great privilege and tremendous blessing to get to know, educate and serve so many sweet couples at this most life changing event in their lives. It is my desire that each couple feel empowered with the tools needed to attain the birth they want. After ensuring a healthy mom and baby, the goal I strive for with my clients is a positive birth experience, no matter how each birth unfolds!”

Gwen is a DONA Southwest Technical College trained and Well-Rounded Maternity certified doula who is honored to compassionately serve couples in the northern Illinois and southeastern Wisconsin areas, whether home, birth center, or hospital birth.

Gwen went ABOVE and BEYOND to help us experience the birth we desired. We can’t thank her enough for her presence with us during one of the most sacred moments in life! 


Gwen’s presence is a precious part of the birth of my 3rd child. I am forever grateful that she was with us. To say that I would recommend her is an understatement as I believe any family would be extremely blessed to have her with them as they welcome their child into the world.


I don’t know how we would have done it without her clam, strong, and kind guidance. The labor and delivery nurse even commented that Gwen was the best doula she had worked with. I would highly recommend Gwen to anyone considering a doula.
