Alana Rusin


Hi! I'm Alana Rusin. I have been a practicing attorney in Boston for the past 10 years and I live in Fort Point with my husband and two kiddos, Lucy (6) and Liam (4).

I first discovered Little Lovage Club in 2016 as a client.  My Newbies Class, led by Nancy Gair, helped me feel sane, supported and understood during the wild ride of new motherhood.  I kept coming back and took Kangas, Here we Go Again with Liam, and other classes.  Lovage and its community of young families is near and dear to my heart.  So when Lovage temporarily closed during the pandemic I found my calling - and ended up taking over as the new owner!

I am excited and honored to reboot Lovage.  My dream is to continue to build the most supportive, inclusive community of young families in and around Boston, and to be the premier resource for you as you navigate the 0-5 year stage in the Hub.  There are many exciting announcements coming.  Please look out for email updates and updated class schedules.  I hope you will join us and please reach out to us (hello@littlelovageclub.com) or me (alana@littlelovageclub.com) with any questions, comments or requests!

Kathleen is a certified postpartum doula, labor doula, infant feeding specialist and owner of Boston Area Doulas. Her goal is to provide families with non-judgmental, compassionate, and evidence-based support as they prepare for parenthood. Once a baby arrives, I help parents emotionally and physically recover from birth, help babies adjust to life outside the womb and manage anything that interferes with parents’ and baby's adjustment to the “fourth trimester.”
