Jamaa Birth Village means family in the African language of Swahili. Come and go with me, on the humble beginnings and birthing of a village.
In April 2016, Jamaa Birth Village hosted St. Louis’s first Doula training and I co-taught a class of 13-new Doula students in my dining room over the course of 8-days. We also trained our first husband-wife doula duo, and invited guests from many different backgrounds of life. We celebrated our graduation at Cathy’s Kitchen in downtown Ferguson.
