Ashe’ Brooklyn Doula Services
Bringing back natural childbirth
My name is Jaenice and I am a Birth & Postpartum Doula. Ashe’ - is the life force breathed into each human being by God. Here at Ashe’ Brooklyn Doula Services, my goal is to create a safe space where every expectant parent can lean into their pregnancy, birth and postpartum experience utilizing traditional southern medicine & practices. Before the introduction of today’s OB/GYN services, there were “granny midwives”, the term applied to African-American lay women who delivered the majority of both black and white women’s babies in the rural south during the 1900’s.
“Both societal and health system factors contribute to high rates of poor health outcomes and maternal mortality for Black Women, who are more likely to experience barriers to obtaining quality care and often face racial discrimination throughput their lives”.
