My purpose is to nurture, create, and transform. I believe in nurturing and supporting the family as a whole with non-judgmental, non-medical companionship, education, and resources. Birth and postpartum are natural aspects of life, and I am here to help you achieve full care through pregnancy, labor, and the smoothest transition into parenthood. My philosophy is to uplift mentally, emotionally, and spiritually for a balanced life, always promoting peace to you and your family. I want to provide full support in whatever decision the family wants to make regarding the child and childcare. I 100% encourage you and advocates for you through motherhood/parenthood.

(I SERVICE ANY STATE WITHIN THE USA, I AM WILLING TO TRAVEL) In today’s culture there is so much isolation, especially surrounding birth. You are going to experience feelings, emotions, and have questions that maybe you can’t just talk to your cat about. we want to break the pattern to normalize and let you know it’s okay to have support! (We all need support in many different faces, it’s very human). Our doula services at Medicine of Essence are centered in a nurturing approach designed to educate through pregnancy on birth, labor, and child care to enable clients to make the decision for themselves. We provide you with continuous support through child birth and coach you through the birthing process.
I felt so at peace having her support me through my birth and postpartum period. She constantly kept in touch and educated me throughout my pregnancy, such a kind and caring soul. Thank you, Laila!

Laila was an amazing postpartum night doula and provided professional quality support to myself, a first-time mother, and my newly born daughter. She was caring, kind, patient and gentle. Her recommendations were always spot on and I appreciated her genuine curiosity about my well-being, emotional and physical recovery. I highly recommend Laila to all mothers needing birth and postpartum support.

Laila is extremely welcoming and supportive. I had gave birth to my second daughter and hired Laila as my postpartum doula three weeks after I delivered. I purchased the ultimate pink package because I needed extra help due to my husband working day shifts. I also experienced my first yoni steam about 3 months postpartum at the shop location in Hyattsville! and never felt more refreshed and connected to my lady parts!
