Embracing your journey with compassion & care.
"My hope is to walk with you in your journey to wellness through pregnancy, birth, postpartum, and beyond in overall wellness.
From birth through 4th Trimester, it is both an amazing and challenging time. I am dedicated to maintaining a space for support, encouragement and compassion for your family. "
Hi, I'm Ajoa!
My passion is supporting families through pregnancy, birth and beyond.
As a young mother, pregnancy was a major milestone that was filled with an array of emotions. I learned a lot about the importance of your support system in the early moments of motherhood. From my happiest times to some daunting ones, I was never short of a helping hand or open heart. I am forever grateful for my village that gave me the confidence to push through my most challenging moments in early motherhood. Since having my first child, I have always wanted to be that helping hand to other families as well.
I now have four children who are a daily reminder of my greatest accomplishments.
It is an honor to be part of your first "welcome team" during delivery as a labor doula and continue that role as a cheerleader during those first few months while getting to know you're newest family member. As a full spectrum doula, I provide services in the following areas:
According to the American Pregnancy Association, statistics have shown that the presence of a doula has been proven to; result in an overall pleasant birth experience, decrease the need for medical intervention via a cesarean section (50%), shorten the length of labor (25%), decrease the need for an epidural (60%) just to name a few.
A doula provides additional support and allows the family members, spouses, and partners the ability to fully experience the moments of the birth. As your doula, making sure you are fully informed before birth is essential to creating the birth experience you desire. Though some things may not always go according to plan but according to nature I aim to empower you to fully embrace the moment to have a positive birth experience.
A doula is a non-medical support person and an advocate for your during the labor and delivery process. They provide both emotional and physical support during the labor process during moments when things become challenging. A doula does not replace your partner, relative , or friend at the time of delivery.
As your doula I am solely on YOU during the birthing journey. I will provide comfort measures, and be sure that you are advocating for yourself during your time of delivery at your preferred birthing site.
A Postpartum doula aides in recovery immediately following birth and provides significant support for the family as they adjust to the new changes in their family. During their time with a postpartum doula, the new parent(s) is given emotional and physical support, all while creating a space that allows them to delight in the precious early moments of life with their baby.
As your postpartum doula I will provide resources to help you adjust during the postpartum period. This includes but is not limited to lactation support, establishing routines, educating the family on safe baby care, along with making sure families are able to embrace the waves of the 4th Trimester.
Yes, it is strongly encouraged to have a provider of your choice to ensure you are supported by a medical professional.
Though I am a certified doula I am not a medically licensed professional. Therefore, I will not be able to provide medical instruction or diagnoses. I strongly encourage you continue to see a medically licensed professional. I will encourage you to follow the guidelines and recommendations as given by your provider.
You can begin your doula search as soon as you find out you are pregnant!
My services begin during pregnancy with resources along with support as you move through the trimesters. You will receive continues support via phone, email, and text to make sure that you are equipped with the knowledge needed to be fully empowered when the time comes for you to bring your baby Earthside.
During this time of preparation we will work on mindful practices and your overall wellness. I will also work with you to create a birth plan, a postpartum routine.
During Active Labor, I will provide a calming environment that allows you to focus and remain present during the birthing process. I will present a number of calming techniques and relief measures including breathwork, aromatherapy, meditation, massage etc.
After those initial first few moments with you baby, I will implement a postpartum plan as discussed with you prior to delivery. The goal is to foster a nurturing and supportive environment entering this Fourth Trimester, allowing you to fully experience the delicate transition to your new normal. It's my joy to bring you peace of mind and encouragement during our time together.
As a virtual doula, thankfully I am still able to connect with you and provide you with focused one-on-one support in the convenience of your home.
This gives you the flexibility to schedule a time that best suits you and with less disruption. We will be able to set up designated time to chat, answer questions, and talk though experiences as you and your family get to know baby!
In addition to video chats I will be checking in with you regularly via text and email and providing supplemental resources that are tailored to your postpartum needs.
We will connect via Facetime/Skype/Zoom.
