Velesha was raised in a home where her Caribbean-American culture was celebrated. It was always encouraged to live your best life: spiritually, physically, mentally, intellectually, and emotionally. She has worked with women from the DMV and Tri-state areas which then expanded to serve women overseas from diverse communities in person and virtually: women of color, deployed military families from the USA, Canada, United Kingdom, and Italy. In addition to German families throughout Stuttgart Germany and surrounding areas. It is her desire to continue servicing pregnant parents and their families while currently residing in the DMV.
Her passion as a cultural birth worker leads to her strong beliefs:
Your birth matters
Your recovery matters
The way you feel matters
Parents you matter too
