My name is Ama. I am a single mom to Lucy(Nov 2003) and Alton(Mar 2009)
I am a student midwife and doula...


I completed my doula training through toLabor in March 2010. I am also a student midwife taking the Basic Midwifery course through the Massachusetts Midwives Alliance. Before I began my path towards birth work, I was a certified infant and toddler teacher. It is amazing to watch the little one learn and grow so fast. I also worked with a local camp in the summer that served special needs children of all ranges.
In 2003, I became a mother to Lucy who is a beautiful little person with her own special views on life. She was born in the hospital. My experience there left me feeling like birth could be something more. I started doing research and educating myself on birth, breastfeeding and parenting. Then in 2009, Alton was born. He healed me and taught me what birth could be like. Alton was born at home surrounded by many loving women.
I believe that birth is a natural process that should be left to take the path that it needs. Every birth is different and holds its own power.
“We have a secret in our culture, and it's not that birth is painful.
It's that women are strong.” -Laura Stavoe Harm
