Daughters of the African Diaspora

"Though we are separated by many miles and generations of experiences, we are still CONNECTED BY BLOOD and BOUND TOGETHER BY BIRTH." ~Dr. Doula

About D.O.A.D. Alliance

“Don’t worry Anny, when you have your babies, I will come where you are and show you everything you need to know…”

Within a year of my mother Johnnie Mae Gray Little saying those words to me, she had become an ancestor. That is one of the few statements that I can still hear in her actual voice, and I have spent the past 25 years, through births of my own and many others, chasing her words and trying to figure out what she would have shown me. Daughters of the African Diaspora has been birthed from her inspiration.

Daughters of the African Diaspora Alliance involves women of African descent who are committed to preserving, protecting, and promoting indigenous knowledge systems from Africa through traditional birth practices, by utilizing resources within nature, and by practicing skills that allow people of African descent to sustain themselves. It recognizes the daughters of the African Diaspora, spread all over the Western Hemisphere, who have dedicated their lives to learning the traditions of their ancestors, understanding the needs of birthing women's bodies, and using ancient knowledge to heal and PROTECT WOMEN. Are you interested in getting involved?

"Africa to the Diaspora" Birth and PostPartum Project

"Africa to the Diaspora" is a collection  of conversations between Dr. Doula and women of different countries around Africa who are still connected to their birth and postpartum traditions. These indigenous practices show a continuous connection between the women of African descent in the Diaspora and those that were born on the continent. These traditions show a path forward toward the restoration of the resourcefulness of Black women in birth.

Access available for D.O.A.D. Alliance members and Sankofa Birth Ambassadors.
