The mission of Cherishing Life Beginnings Doula and Childbirth Services, LLC (CLB)  is to offer personalized, professional, and nurturing care while empowering and reconnecting mothers with their natural birthing strengths. As a birth doula, our goal is to accompany the mother, her partner, and/or family during pregnancy and labor, by providing support, guidance, and care necessary to her needs. As a postpartum doula, we intend to provide her emotional, psychological, and environmental support to help build confidence and create a smooth transition for the family to enhance the experience of birth.

Cherishing Life Beginnings Doula and Childbirth Services, LLC (CLB) was established in 2015 out of the necessity of:

3. Advocation of Care for BIPOC women

4. Educating BIPOC women on childbirth and Breastfeeding

5. Providing jobs and entrepreneurial training for those interested in aiding with building the village again.

CLB provides education and creates a sense of empowerment and confidence for women and her tribe on the ability to birth naturally, normalizing homebirths with attendants or freebirths, take their birth rights back and make informed decisions based on evidence based information, but more importantly, to tell their birth story when, where, and how they want too WITHOUT FEAR!
