Meet Doula Ife Adebowale
Death of Corporate to Rebirth of Birth
Ife Adebowale, a pioneer of Holistic Black Doulas in Columbus, GA, began her birthwork in 2015 when she was summoned by Dr. Ameena Ali to begin an ancestral path of birthwork as a Doula. After accepting the calling and completing her studies as a certified birth and postpartum doula and birthing her 4th daughter unassisted, she began teaching birth education and attending homebirths part-time from 2016-2017. She realized the impact she was making but being consumed deeply into the matrix of a corporate career life, her passion of birthwork was put on hold. In 2018, she lost her IT Analyst position at her 12.5 years corporate job. Distorted, broken, and angry because her loyalty and dedication was pissed on, she decided that she wasn't going back to Corporate America but she had 4 mouths to feed. How Sway? Determined NOT to sacrifice her time, energy, and integrity having to go find another job, she PRAYED and MEDITATED on what she had to do. Afterwards, she was releasing and journaling and she heard the ancestors say, “you have been released, now fulfil your assignment and purpose”. It was at this very moment, she knew what she had to do. Her thoughts were impregnated with purpose of making CLB exactly what she envisioned, what the ancestors laid forth for her, and what her community needed. She pours everything into CLB. Labor wasn't easy, but CLB was rebirth in 2018. Ife has dedicated her life to educating, empowering, and aiding women with birthing the way they want.
