I came into birth work about a year after giving birth to my son in 2014. I had a very traumatic birth at a Brooklyn Hospital that ended in a cesarean section under general anesthesia.
When I first began supporting families my objective was to shield families from being just as confused as I was about how my birth unfolded. Innatus Birth was founded on the basis of supporting people to find their innate power, worth, and trusting their intrinsic capabilities from within.
Through years of experience, learning, and unlearning, My passion has only grown greater for supporting birthing people, being their guide, and giving them the information they need to feel empowered about their birth and the decisions they make as parents.
Though I acknowledge the importance of the support, I provide to clients during birth and postpartum, it became more clear to me that my calling is to be the one providing clinical care and providing different support needed in my community. I am now in school to become a community midwife, attending the only Black-led Midwifery School at Commonsense Childbirth School of Midwifery.
