I, Mermalien Abiana Bey, offer my services as a doula. I am currently working on completing my certification through The Birth Well in Baltimore, MD. My studies began at Centro Ashe, Costa Rica and continue in Washington, DC.
What is a doula?
The word Doula comes from the Greek word for a birth companion. It has always been one of the highest regards to help women bring children into this world. As your doula, I will provide the most honest emotional, mental and physical support as is possible throughtout the course of your pregnancy and birthing process. I can provide support to you regardless of where you would like to have your child. My job as a doula is not to persuade you with how and where to have your child, but to inform and support the choices that you make!
As an herbalist, I can provide comfort measures through our plant allies. Most of my job is done during your delivery. But prenatal visits are included in my services as well around the clock contact for your questions and concerns.
I'm practicing as a student doula with Momease. I have attened two births and am in process of completing a couple more for my certification, as well as compiling a list of local resources for various prenatal and postpartum services.
