Congratulations on expanding your family!
Pregnancy, birth and the postpartum period can be exciting but also overwhelming. Our Mothers' Light doulas are committed to providing unbiased and non-judgmental support that is deeply rooted in our Ancestral culture and traditions of West Africa.
We gently guide you through your pregnancy, birth, and postpartum recovery by educating you on your options so that you can decide what is best for you and your family.
We find it especially important to provide accessible services and resources to black women and their families, as we believe by providing access we can continue to work to change our birth stories, and the narratives surrounding black mother and infant mortality. We are happy to serve ALL families in Chicago and the South and Western Suburbs.
What Our Clients and Workshop Attendees Are Saying:
"I had the pleasure of being a part of a workshop with Zetanefert and Kemeera of Our Mothers' Light.These two are such yummy goodness and their information and presentation were satisfying to the souls of those who are being reminded who we are...I really appreciate their willingness to share their experiences on the African continent and various dynamics of cultures they have visited all WRAPPED UP in a workshop about helping US re-member how to simply and safely carry our babies on our backs using basic fabric in the African Diaspora. If you don't know these AMAZING sisters, GET TO KNOW THEM! And if you are in the Chicagoland area, inquire of them about their services and future workshops!" ~Andrea Little Mason
"My wife being pregnant was a very exciting time for me, but I was also worried about the challenges that lay ahead, with choosing to go for a natural birth, ideally with minimal medical interaction and in a relaxed setting. [Zetanefert] was perfect for us and she clicked with my wife right away. Throughout my wife's pregancy, she was a calming factor in our lives, someone who reassured my wife through her own knowledge, and experience. When my wife went into labor, [Zetanefert's] massage technique was invaluable, and helped my wife to cope with excruciating back labor pains. She also gave very good advice throughout the labor process that helped us to stay informed, but she left the decision making with us at all times.I would recommend [Zetanefert] to any couple looking to have friendly, wise, comforting and caring support in their corner, as they face the adventure that is bearing children. She made such an impact, that I can't imagine what it would have been to go through it without her." Parrish Morgan
