My name is Asia, a trained full spectrum doula through Jamaa Birth Village since 2020. In 2021 I became trained as an approved provider for Perinatal Mood Anxiety Disorder (PMAD) by Heartland PMAD Consultants, a Certified Placenta Encapsulation Specialist and became a volunteer for the MOMs Line. I am also a Parent Educator and Substance Abuse counselor (MAADC I). As a Doula I approach birth naturally and holistically. I feel honored to be able to share my expertise with women and families around St. Louis, MO.
I always knew as a child that my passion was to help others. In July of 2012 my life changed for the better when I gave birth to my baby girl Zuri. I was in labor for 28 hours and I did exactly what I wanted and that was to go natural. Since then anyone that I knew or encountered while they were pregnant I encouraged them to go natural.
Being a doula is more of a "calling" than a career for me. Helping and empowering woman of all stages of life has become my passion. Here at Doula Love, Light, and Life LLC whether it be emotional support, informational classes, breathing/prenatal yoga techniques, and relaxation, or simply occupying space so that they know they don't have to go through pregnancy, birth, or motherhood alone.
I look at each new birth as a unique experience and in return I will provide mothers and their (significant other) with the encouragement and motivation they need.
