Titles: Mama Glow Doula

I am a recent college graduate from Smith College, currently interning with Mama Glow. I became interested in this doula work once I saw that people who look like me, black women, were dying during this time in life - a time that should be nothing but beautiful and exciting. I want to make a change and improve access to resources and information they have not been receiving about birth. I will be going back to school to become a midwife, but I believe this is the start of having real impact with my work.

I founded my business, Soul Doula, to build a connection between mothers and doulas. I love to help educate mothers as much as I can about the birth process and answer the questions they may have. While I’m young in this business, I am eager to unload everything I have been learning. I have experience both as a birth doula and a postpartum doula.

As your birth doula, you are entitled to my support in person or virtual before the birth, my in-person guidance during the birth, and a visit after the birth. As a postpartum doula, I am there to help you adjust to the new changes you are experience after birth and into parenthood. Whether this is your first, second, or third birth, there are always new things that take time to adjust to.

I am ready to be there for you and guide you through this journey. I always want mothers to know they are not in this alone. You deserve to receive support through your birth, and I hope to be the one to provide you with that care.
