My name is Sandra Omoye Akhareyi. I’m a mother, daughter, sister, birth worker, and student midwife. The name of my business is called Esan doula services, LLC where we provide support and evidence-based education to marginalized folks. Services include birth and postpartum support focused on individualized holistic care. I have a background in working within the healthcare system for close to 14 years in a variety of settings including hospitals, clinics, and at-home care. My titles include RMA/CMA, CPCT, Certified Full Spectrum Doula, WIC peer counselor, Parenting Journey Facilitator, Certified ROSE Interventionist, Certified Placenta Encapsulation Professional, Traditional Birth Assistant, RYT, and BLS/NRP, provider. I came into birth work by the way of a traditional midwife within my community and with the experience/knowledge of giving birth to my daughter. It was through training being offered, that I accepted the call to serve women/birthing individuals. I was intrigued to learn more about breast/chest/human feeding, parent engagement, and pregnancy disorders. I believe having a multi-facet background as such has equipped me to be the birth worker that the different communities that I serve need. Growing up, I found joy in taking care of others. Whether that was babysitting the neighborhood kids or taking care of my elders. Being Afro-Indigenous (bloodline includes: Nigerian, Cuban, and Irish) I was raised in a way of “it takes a village.” Meaning, the community joined forces to help one another in whatever capacity. It’s in my lineage to serve and I’m so happy that my journey in life has led me to midwifery (define as to serve women).
