Welcome! I'm Antonique Akua
I am delighted that you are interested in learning more about AkuaBa Birth Services. Here's a bit about myself, I'm a momma to an incredibly imaginative little boy, certified lactation counselor, childbirth educator, henna artist, and a doula to adult & teen mothers. I have prior experience working with adolescent mothers, providing crisis support, and supporting adults with intellectual & developmental abilities. My journey as a doula began in 2017 with the desire to support women during the very special time of pregnancy and childbirth. As a doula, I provide emotional support, labor comfort measures, informational support, breastfeeding support, and holistic postpartum care. Whether your birth is medicated/unmedicated, hospital, home birth, cesarean, or VBAC I assist by helping mothers and support persons make informed choices to achieve healthy & satisfying birth experiences.
It would be an honor to support you on your unique journey in motherhood. I look forward to speaking with you!
