Read Bio

She is a second-generation perinatal specialist, doula, and birth activist who is passionate about service to expectant and new parents. Her combined expertise in women’s wellness and birth work is over eight years in practice. Velesha believes every woman should have emotional, physical, and mental support while she is in all 4 trimesters (pregnancy, birth, postpartum, parent & newborn baby care). She is an advocate and educator for a woman to know her rights and choices for her prenatal care, birth options, and postpartum care.

 

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:

Representation matters
Your birth matters
Your recovery matters
The way you feel matters
Parents you matter too

She is a multi-talented individual with credentials as a Holistic Lifestyle Educator who also holds a Master of Arts in Cultural Sustainability as an Anthropologist. With love to empowering women and families to live a “well” personal life. In living the best life daily, she practices and encourages the 5 dimensions of personal health: mental, physical, spiritual, emotional, and intellectual which then leads to a holistic lifestyle, not a trend.

She is a mother of two high-spirited children, ages ten and four years old.

Velesha is the team belly binding expert.
