Latona has always been inspired to empower women. For her, being a doula is all about empowering women to trust their bodies and intuition through their pregnancy and birthing experiences. Her training in family services, education for liberation, and teen mentoring, as well as her Spanish language proficiency enable her to work with women from New Orleans’ many diverse communities. Latona is trained by DONA as a doula and by ICEA as a childbirth educator.
In her youth, Denise held the hand of a woman in labor and witnessed her first birth. She was hooked! She knew then that she wanted to do that as a woman and she wanted to help other women with their birth experiences as well.
She went to nursing school and has been working in labor and delivery for the last 22 years. She especially feels that she has a talent working with women who want natural childbirth.
Sula has been a Birth Doula since 2006 and is a great believer in the traditions and rituals of the Ancients and the great Granny Midwives of old.
She has found power, strength and a tremendous healing through this sacred work. Her role as doula is spiritual food for the healing of her life and the life of others. She is humbled to be given the honor of bringing in new life and escorting women into their personal power. Long live the legacy of the Granny midwives who have given birth to the doula.
Being the youngest sister of four, Narda quickly learned how to be a true sister to many. In service to others, she found the various forms of human healing to be a rich source of energy, and she has always been attracted to working creatively with people around ways of well-being.
She would love to support you in your birthing process.
For Lila, childbirth used to be a means to an end, a medical emergency in which a woman just lay helplessly on her back while a team of doctors and nurses saved her. That was until she saw a natural birth for the first time. For that birth, the mother worked through her pains along side her team of supporters and family. They labored together and later celebrated their efforts. This experience completely opened her eyes to this amazing event known as the birth.
After that, Lila was convinced that every woman should have the right to have the kind of birth that makes her feel strong and empowered, whether that means having a C-section or a natural birth.
My spirit was first called to birthing with the birth of my two children, Masaaba and Rosalie. I had midwives for both of my births. The first was a cesarean section and the second was a home birth. The extremity of both births gave me experience of both birthing worlds: hospital and home.
Mothers are created once labor ends and that is where real support is needed. Women's postpartum health, the health of mom’s and babies, is so important to me that I am also in the process of becoming a trained Postpartum support coach.
My work as a Doula is an extension of my life's work with women and their families; supporting mothers, being mindful of how children are raised, creating healing and loving spaces.
As a Doula I try to be by your side from the moment you notify me you are in labor until an hour or 2 after you deliver. All the time, encouraging you, your partner and family.
One of the wonderful parts of being a Doula is that I get to create and support a space where women can share their birth stories, were they can talk about the changes in their bodies in a natural way and talk about the very natural and personal things that are going on in our bodies and lives during pregnancy. This openness creates something special and it happens every time I walk into the home of a pregnant family.
