Lisa McAllister, GLOW Childbirth Educator
Lisa McAllister received her childbirth training through the Childbirth and Postpartum Professional
Association (CAPPA) and has been with GLOW since its’ beginning in 2010. Having personally
experienced both Cesarean Birth as well as Vaginal Birth After Cesarean (VBAC) with her two children,
Lisa understands firsthand the many varied hopes, joys, concerns, fears, and questions expectant
parents have when preparing for their child’s birth. Her professional path has been paved by a desire
to empower mothers and fathers to advocate for themselves and their envisioned births.
With years of experience as both high school teacher and mother, Lisa naturally brings a genuinely
supportive nature to her classes. An avid yoga student, she practiced prenatal and mom/baby yoga
with Amy Hopkins, and later had Amy as her doula at her daughter’s birth. It goes without saying
that Lisa’s coming to GLOW has been a special and natural fit.
When she's not grading student papers or racing to yoga class, Lisa is longing for long, summer
beach days spent with her husband Nat, their children Flynn and Elouise, and dog Brodie.
