Na’ima Channel

Founding Member

Jamilah Na’ima Channel is a true Florida Native. Born in Jacksonville but raised in Orlando FL with family cultural roots embedded in Jamaica and Africa.

Her passion for being a Doula was sparked once she realized that the morality rate for women of color was hirer than their counterparts.  She realized the importance of educating mothers on what is to be expected during the labor and delivery process and how this information could actually save their lives. She also works with the mothers to strengthen their self-worth which in turn empowers them to advocate for the birth they desire during their journey through pregnancy and post-partum.

With a Degree in Psychology, Jamilah knows how powerful the mind is and strongly believes in the power of affirmations and encourages families to reevaluate their views on labor and delivery which helps them to have the outcome they envision.

Jamilah believes no family should labor alone or have to enter parenthood without support. She is a Birth Doula who brings her heart and a sense of peace to each laboring process and can provide postpartum Doula services.

Jamilah also believes no family should have to make uneducated decisions concerning their expected child and upcoming labor and delivery. She provides information and resources that will help them to make informed decisions.  

 Her goal as a Doula is to help every family have a positive and memorable birth experience and to provide support during the postpartum period.

Every family deserves a positive & memorable experience.”
