This community is for you if you’re Black, pregnant and:

  • You're  searching for a supportive community that truly understands your unique journey. Join us, a welcoming community of Black pregnant mamas where you can  share as much or as little of your experiences without the fear of judgment or misunderstanding.
  • You know you'd benefit from valuable insights into pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period from a highly experienced multi-award-winning Black birth professional.
  • You follow lots of pregnancy/antenatal/hypnobirthing/doula and parent & baby accounts on social media but find the volume of information overwhelming. Endless scrolling has you confused, wasting time and doing zero preparation or has you signing up to programmes that you never complete!
  • You want pregnancy and birth tips that are relevant and relatable to you as a black woman. Otherwise, what’s the point?
  • Your current experience of navigating the maternity system has been bewildering and challenging. Let us help you navigate it safely and on your own terms!

What inspired me to create the Birth Village:

As a doula, I wanted to serve more black women in a way that we deserve to be served –with understanding and empathy.

Served in a way that honours and respects our rich and diverse African and Caribbean heritage and the way it intersects with a maternity system that often struggles to see and hear us.

 I promise you won’t see any reference to BAME here; I won’t be lumping you into a one size fits all group.

I see you and I see your individual needs!

 Are you tired of seeing Black women unsupported and signing up to courses that don’t serve us well?

My inbox is full of Black women asking for support and information that hasn’t been included on the 'one size fits all' birth preparation courses.  

It's different here! I care about how you birth. I am invested in your experience. When you win, we all win!

I want to use my extensive experience to shorten your learning curve, cut through the fluff and serve you with the information and support that’s going to take you quickly and safely from anxiety to birth confidence and beyond.

I know that when you feel confident and supported, you’ll relax, start to enjoy your pregnancy and bond with your unborn baby.

Your partner and loved ones will benefit too.

When we nurture the mamas, people around her soak up that positive energy too so relationships become more harmonious.
Happy mom, happy everyone!

Let me introduce - Black Mamas Birth Village

Black Mamas Birth Village is a community and birth preparation hub for Black expectant parents.

Plus, you'll be invited to monthly online group sessions with other mamas. This is where you'll get to learn some basic hypnobirthing, birth planning, explore your birthing options, learn about advocating for yourself etc.

So, whether you’re in your 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th trimester (have a baby up to 3 months old), there’ll be something for everyone. My guests (other Black birth & postpartum professionals) and I will be serving you with information that will support you to glide as smoothly as possible along the path to life with a new baby.

Plus, a private online community (away from Facebook) where the sharing and caring continues. Meet other Black mamas, start conversations, share your birth story or have a rant. We’re here for all that and more!

Simply follow the steps below and I'll take you on the shortest route from confusion & anxiety to birth confidence!

Your 5 Easy Steps to Birth Confidence

1. Join Us Today!

Whether you're a 1st time or a 5th time mom, the plethora of information online about pregnancy, birth and motherhood has left you feeling overwhelmed and confused. You know that you should be making preparations but you're not sure about the what, where and how. You can stop searching, I've included EVERYTHING you'll need to get you ready for confident birth and parenting. 

2. Welcome Home!

And..... exhale!
Our private community is hosted right here, away from the distractions of Facebook!
You've found your Village. You're now part of a supportive community of other Black mamas-to-be. It's a safe and non-judgemental space where conversations around pregnancy, birth and parenting happen. You feel relieved that you're not alone as you walk the path with others who welcome you and totally get you!

3. Support for YOU all the Way!

GOOD support is a vital to Black birth and parenting success and you'll get plenty of it here!
Each month we'll meet online to check in with each other and learn how best to prepare for birth and parenthood. It's at these monthly get togethers that you'll benefit from some doula wisdom and the wisdom of the other Black mamas in the Village!
Any anxieties that you had before joining us are replaced with feelings of calmness & confidence.
I also offer 1:1 support for mamas who'd benefit from some extra nurturing.

4. Enjoy the learning!

I'm so excited to share this learning with you as I know how impactful this information is!
You'll be encouraged to read and watch the content of your choice and as a result you'll have the information that's relevant to you. You'll feel empowered now that you have the knowledge that you need to make this journey to motherhood the best it can be.

5. Graduation Day baby! 

You'll come to the end of your learning and feel super confident now that you're fully prepared for the journey from pregnancy to life with your new baby. You've come a long way and grown so much in confidence and knowledge. You're able to make informed decisions about your pregnancy, birth & parenting. You and your partner are able to advocate for yourselves. You're all set for birth confidence! .

This journey is going to happen no matter what.

The question is, are you going to travel that road on your own or with professional help and support every step of the way?

 "I've just given birth to baby number 5. This time it was different. I was part of Black Mamas Birth Village and learned so much about my birthing rights, making a birth plan etc. It made this birth different. Also, through the group I was able to feedback to the hospital about my experience and they've agreed to make some changes!"

When you upgrade you'll be able to reschedule a session so long as you've given at least 24 hours' notice.
