Sylvia Scarlett the Birth Doula
Owner & Founder
Twelve years ago and four babies later a desire to join a movement of women empowering mothers in pregnancy and childbirth was born. In 2019, I embarked on a journey to professionally pursue doula work to offer birth support services to the women in my community.
My heart as a birth doula and fellow mother is to come alongside you right where you are, to empower and educate. To bridge the gap where standard healthcare meets informed consent so that lasting, positive birth outcomes would outweigh the current norm.
As it stands, the maternal mortality rate in America resembles that of impoverished, third-world countries, and that rate rises 3-4x higher for Black, birthing women. The support birth doulas offer to a mother before, during and shortly after childbirth help her to achieve the healthiest, most satisfying experience possible. In doing so, we can inspire the next generation of birthing women to reclaim their autonomy and power not just for childbirth but so much more!
I will now be embarking on a new journey this year, and I will be taking more time to invest in my family and the "behind the scenes" operations of Sacred & Surrendered Births while my team shares in the joys of providing you and your family faith-filled and empowering birth support. God bless!
