Abena Adu is an author, certified doula, doula trainer and womb wellness consultant. This multi-talented artist who is also a candle maker/instructor and nail technician, took a turn in a different direction after becoming a mother in 2008. She was dissatisfied with her treatment within the medical system and also heard similar complaints from her friends. She soon realized that there was a birth and womb crisis in the U.S. among Black women. Abena began to help women with fertility, fibroids, childbirth and many womb challenges.
Being a survivor of family violence and multi-generational sexual abuse, she has answered the call to break these cycles and assists others to do the same. She owns and operates, The Pregnancy and Womb Wellness Center in the DFW area where she assists women with doula support, vaginal steams and womb yoga.
By request and with the intention to eliminate the alarmingly high rates of infant and maternal mortality, she now offers doula trainings and childbirth classes to help other women create better birth outcomes. She believes that no woman should go through the childbirth journey alone and that doulas help save lives.
Abena loves sharing knowledge. She has been a featured guest speaker at the 2nd and 3rd Annual DFW Literacy Fest and Meatout hosted by the Black Vegetarian Society of Texas.
Abena loves spending time with her family, traveling and preparing vegan foods. You may find her helping women by providing telephone consultations, online classes and hosting workshops in America and overseas.
