Founder, Mrs. Abena Adu is an author, doula trainer, certified doula, assistant midwife, yoni steam practitioner, womb yoga instructor and waistbeads designer/distributor.
Abena became obsessed with childbirth in 2008, during her first pregnancy. Because of her successful birthing and breastfeeding experience, her friends began to ask her for advice. After helping several pregnant and postpartum moms, she was soon, called a doula by her community in Atlanta, GA. She eventually became certified in 2013.
After 10 years of being a doula, Abena was then asked to teach others and she created a doula training certification program. She became interested in midwifery, so she completed an assisted midwife training. Her overall goal is to help create better birth outcomes in the Black community.
Today, she focuses on helping birth workers and womb wellness practitioners with entrepreneurship. She has authored 4 books. She also volunteers at a maternity home, teaching expecting and new mothers, pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum education. Abena created the semi-annual Doula Expo and is the host of the Black Breastfeeding Week annual celebration in DFW. You can find her vending waistbeads at events and teaching doulas online and in person.Gift Cards Now Available. Choose any amount.
