Meet Your Doula
Evonna N. Christmon,
DONA Trained Birth Doula
"Peace, I’m Evonna, The Motherhood Healer! I’m a professionally trained and certifying Birth Doula with DONA International. For over 10 years my work has passionately centered ancestral birth practices, relationship building, and maternal wellness.
Here’s a simple truth: how you give birth matters to your self esteem, self confidence, the baby’s long term health, and your relationship with your partner. How you are CARED for and supported during your birth has a major influence on how you give birth and feel about it for years to come. I learned that pregnant women need and appreciate loving, familiar people to stay with them, help them, and share one of their most meaningful moments- your birth. Being a Doula has been rewarding, beautiful, and necessary work!"

Trainings & Community Work:
Culturally speaking, Black women have always had companions with no medical training, like mothers and aunts, providing emotional support and comfort during pregnancy. Doulas are similar to these companions. Having the support of a Doula can prepare a family for some of the challenges they may experience as people of color.
"My experience with Evonna was more than I expected. She helped me prepare for the delivery I desired with prenatal yoga, Mama Talks with other moms, and childbirth education classes to keep me informed. All of those things allow me to say I had my baby in CONFIDENCE and the way I wanted.
I also purchased the Help A Sista Out postpartum kit that included my placenta encapsulation capsules, tincture, umbilical cord keepsake, postpartum herbal soak, and homemade nipple balm. You can't get any better than that!"

"The decision to have a doula & homebirth with my third child came with ease. It was even easier to do it with the assistance of my friend and sister, Evonna. From the moment we hired her she was on her job! She called me often and checked on me and was always a phone call away when I was having hormonal changes offering meaningful care and very good information. If I were to do it again, Evonna would be the only doula I call! I highly recommend Evonna, she's the best!"

I got pregnant in 2015 and as a single mom, support was very important to me. Evonna was early in her doula career but she was more than willing to give me the help and guidance I needed. Evonna created fun prenatal visits like yoga in the park and came over to teach me and my mom laboring positions we could do at home before we went to the hospital. I felt like I had a real genuine friend and she even came to the hospital to help ease the pain with different movements and breathing techniques. Evonna is a true gem. We still keep in contact to this day. I recommend her to all of my pregnant friends!"
