After many moons of creating music and sowing seeds into the lives of children, Adjoba was honored with the request of becoming a Doula for the birth of a little Jamaican girl named Ama in 2020. Deeply inspired by the experience, she has also become an advocate for families who need help navigating trauma, social systems and everyday life challenges.
Answering the call of the waterfalls of love, Adjoba has developed an overarching care for the families of her Village and the Black community at large. She loves to fuse her multi-instrumentalist skills, herbal wisdom, color therapy and passion for Afro-Indigenous cultures to celebrate the birth experience and the joy it brings!
She has the pleasure of catching babies, nourishing pregnant bellies and rocking newborns to sleep. She is also a Moderator & Host for "The Black Doula Collective," an international network of diverse birth professionals. It is 3000 members strong and counting...However, she now calls on her Village to assist her in continuing to help Mamas and Families with low-income or dealing with homelessness.
Her goal is to raise $13, 000 for Full Spectrum Doula support for 10 families. This would allow the pregnancy to post-partum period to be fully provided for. Please join her on this beautiful journey of loving on our Black Mamas, Papas, and their Little Stars!
Remembering the continuing gift of laughter and a good ole fashioned hug, let us enjoy one another!
