Founding President/CEO & Clinic Director

Welcome to Momma’s Village Fayetteville. When I started out on my journey to become a lactation professional, I was introduced to the disparities that our Black communities faced in providing human milk for our babies and receiving culturally appropriate lactation support. I also learned about the disparities in birth outcomes for Black mothers and babies. So, I decided to start Momma’s Village-Fayetteville, Inc, a 501c3 nonprofit organization that provided lactation education, promotion, support and advocacy from other lactation professionals and volunteers of color. We quickly began to establish ourselves as a valuable resource in the Black natural birthing community in Fayetteville. Soon, I started to get repeated requests from women in our village seeking doulas, specifically Black doulas. As I sought out this resource in our community, I found that there were no active Black doulas in our area. So, after a year of searching for a doula training that was going to place a specific focus on the importance of culturally appropriate doula support honoring the traditions from our communities of color, I decided to facilitate a doula training. In March, 2018, the FIRST Black doula training was held and 12 Black doulas were trained. Momma’s Village Fayetteville has chosen to operate as a doula collective and NOT a doula agency because we wanted to make sure we were accessible to ALL women while honoring the principles of the African village concept. Often times, many doula agencies seem to be exclusive in their language, where they choose to offer their services, and how they market themselves. Our MVF Doula Sisters make sure that we follow the motto that Every Woman Deserves a Doula if it is desired. We have a total of five (5) active, trained doulas who provide pregnancy, birth and postpartum support, placenta encapsulation, lactation support, mental health support and a host of other services that honor our families during this special, sacred time. I look forward to the work that we will do in our community as we educate, promote, protect, and support our families so that we can help improve birth and health outcomes. We hope that through our service and dedication, we make a lasting impact that will benefit generations to come because it takes a village to impact a community.
