Giving Back: Global

Thanks to my clients and some generous friends and family, I will have the honor of serving pregnant women in a new part of Kenya in August 2024. 

Previously we have served in the slums of Mathare Valley in Nairobi, Kenya but this year was asked to be a part of a trip that will be going to southern Kenya on the border of Tanzania near Mt. Kilimanjaro. I am excited to serve the women of  Entepesi, Kenya along with doulas and midwives from all over the Untied States. 


We will be working on pregnancy/childbirth education, breastfeeding and general health and wellness and midwifery care. Not only will we be teaching the moms, but also some community health workers and midwives as well. This way they can take the information we share and continue to use it to benefit the women in the community.
Thanks to the wonderful Indianapolis birth community and my awesome church family, each mom we work with will receive nursing shirts and a newborn packet that includes baby clothes and supplies. 

If you'd like to get involved in supporting moms by donating to our birth kits or other financial means, please contact me and/or you can donate through Zelle, Venmo or Paypal : Willowtreedoulaservices@gmail.com.

I'd love for you to follow along! For updates on the happenings in Kenya, follow us on Instagram. 
-Asante Sana!

Every client of Willow Tree Doula Services will be a part of  helping mothers in a third world country have the opportunity to have a safer, happier and more empowered birth experience.  

A percentage of each birth fee I charge will go toward helping pregnant and breastfeeding women in different parts of the country of Kenya. 

March of 2018,I had the opportunity to visit the site where a birth center will be eventually built. This particular center will be in a rural area serving moms that have no access to healthcare or hospitals. When the time comes, we would love to be able to send a team of birth workers there. Until then, we will go where we are needed

Esther is now a mama of a beautiful baby boy. She is a social worker at the school we serve in the slums of Mathare in Kenya. Her birth experience will have been very different than one in the US. I am looking forward to seeing her again in 2023 and hearing her story.
