Bee or BriAnna or Bri, the Doula, has been a postpartum, labor & delivery and newborn nursery registered nurse since August 2018. In February 2020, she received her birth doula training through the National Black Doula Association. She also enjoys capturing moments in time with birth, newborn and maternity photography, a hobby she has been skilled in since 2015 (all the photos on this website were taken by Bee, The Photographer). Nature, herbs and the powerful healing energy of plant medicine have fascinated Bee since she discovered how to make mud pies and plant food for her dolls as a little girl. Through learning about pharmacology and western prescription medications, she discovered that Mother Nature, even at its smallest compounds, has provided humans with everything we need to survive.
Her passion for childbirth goes back to her early childhood years after seeing her sister carry her nephew to term and becoming addicted to watching “A Birth Story” on TLC every morning. It all came full circle once she began working as a women’s health nurse right after nursing school and also during her journey of self healing, self discovery and spirituality. These experiences have allowed her to provide holistic/individualized support and care to clients using herbs, natural birthing practices and nutritional education. Bee’s current birth philosophy involves empowering her clients to trust their ability to give birth and most importantly their instincts. Birth isn’t a illness or disease and shouldn’t be perceived as such, however this is the case for modernized Western Medicine. Educate yourself so your birth can be your birth.

Meet Keanna, my Chief Operating Officer/COO and right hand man! This doula work has gotten busy for Bee so she had to find a back up Birth & Postpartum Doula to join her team! Keanna and her extensive postpartum/childcare knowledge as a social worker was the perfect piece to be added to the BTD puzzle and she currently oversees the postpartum doula/childcare operations of the company!
Not only does she assist Bee with helping serve the community, but she serves the community in her own ways as childcare and special needs advocate! You may see Keanna around If you’re working with Bee, or you're interested in postpartum care/working with our postpartum doulas, so be sure to say hi!
