As a lactation counselor, Shevonne’s cultural fluency allows her to support families from all walks of life — providing compassionate, trauma-informed care throughout their baby-feeding journeys. Trained in the ways of the traditional African American granny midwife and doula, she is passionate about reclaiming and restoring ancestral knowledge, traditions, and rituals. Her goal is to better support, strengthen, and empower families in her community. She is a healer, an advocate, an auntie, and a kind stranger to many.
“It is my mission to advance maternal health, amplify the voices of the most vulnerable, participate in deep ancestral healing to stop the cycle of intergenerational trauma within my family, and promote health in the Black community. I have the honor of being in this work during a time when, as a people, we are reclaiming our ancestral knowledge, leaning into the radical act of trusting our bodies’ abilities to create safe passages for our babies, and learning how to provide the best nourishment for our families.”
