A Little Bit About Me

I never expected to be involved in birth work, yet five years later I am immersed in it loving every moment! My loving husband was the first person to educate me about my birth choices.  His encouragement and the birth of my daughter are the reasons why I work in this field. While pregnant with my daughter I became very informed about my body and natural child birth/labor. I read countless books and watched many online videos. I did not realize my passion for birth work until I was asked to be a doula for the midwife who was serving me. She took me under her wing and started me on this journey and I have never looked back.

Birth is one of the most sacred, compelling, beautiful, and healing events I have ever experienced. There is nothing compared to witnessing the birthing person bring forth a happy and healthy child. It is something I find incredibly joy-giving and satisfying. Labor In Love Midwifery seeks to serve birthing persons  so that they can have a safe and healthy birth experience.

A Little Bit About Me 

Certified Birth Doula, providing support and encouragement to expectant mothers and their families during pregnancy, labor/delivery and postpartum periods. 

You have to be passionate about this work. I have been working with families for the last 20 years as an educator. I’ve been certified on how to help children from pre-k on up through high school. I started to wonder how I could help children and their families in other ways? Start from the very being I thought….show my passion to support and encourage their families before they are born. Becoming a Doula let me do just that.

Working as a Doula for the last 3 yrs has been a rewarding, exhilarating and profound experience. I’ve been allowed to connected with families on a more solemn level. These connections are long-lasting and shared.

When a client trusts you to assist, support and participate with one of the most precious times in their lives it creates a bond like no other. I hold this bond in a sacred place. You’ve joined this family at a place in their own personal history and they have allowed you to take part.

I’m part of a movement that will decrease the mortality rate of women during their labor process. Reassure expectant mothers of their capacity to participate in this life changing event with knowledge, capabilities and strength during the birth of their child. Also promote supportive strategies and actions leading to a feeling of increased fulfillment when going through the birth process.

A Little Bit About Me

My name is Sherveriria Harris and I am the founder and owner of Karibu Mama Pregnancy Services formerly known as Gifted Doulas llc, established in 2018.  Karibu Mama means “welcome mother” and  provides competent, assessable, affordable child birth education, lactation,  and full circle doula services to local families (full circle means from conception through 1 year postpartum).  My mission is to improve birth outcomes, and  put an end to the high infant mortality and maternal morbidity rates for black birthing peoples in North East Ohio. I bring a unique combination of formal birth education and lived birth experiences to my work in maternal support and education.


I have been married to my husband for 19 years and we birthed five children naturally. I am a stay at home mom and achieved my lactation goals for 4 out of my 5 children, I nursed them for at least their first year. My experiences with nursing my first child, and ultimately  stopping before I was ready,  fuels my passion to support and educate BIPOC lactating families.  I have provided breastfeeding and natural birth support to friends and family for over 20 years. In 2014, I  received  my Bachelor of Arts in Social Science with a concentration in education, from Ashford University. In 2015 I developed and administered a birthing program for a local non-profit agency.  In 2018 I began taking yearly formal doula trainings with several national known doula agencies:  DONA, Sufficient Grace Ministries, Ancient Song, Madrella and SMC Full Circle Doula Birth Attendants. Shafia Monroe Consulting Birthing Change trainings  were very impactful to my birth-work, they focused on the traditions of the African American Midwife, and providing culturally competent care to families. In 2019 I began my formal lactation training with The Healthy Children Project and received my Certified Lactation Consultants license  from ALPP. I am currently studying to become an Advanced Certified Lactation Consultant.  I also continue to study traditional birthing practices around the world especially those cultures of the African Diaspora.


My passion for formal birth-work blossomed in 2015 while working for a local non-profit to develop a program to help improve the birth outcomes of black mothers in Stark County. I quickly learned that there is a void in quality, skilled, racially competent maternity education and support for black birthers in North East Ohio. I can attest to having first hand knowledge of pervasive medical racism,  a lack of skilled support, mistreatment and the ignorning of BIPOC bodies and thier voices within the maternal health care system. I made a commitment  to serve black women unapologetically and to do all that I can to be sure that they are seen, heard, educated, loved and fully empowered. It is my goal for Karibu Mama to be a safe space for BIPOC  families to receive the physical, emotional  and educational support they need and deserve to thrive.


I love spending time with my family, live jazz music, traveling and my grand babies.

A Little Bit About Me

My name is BreJona and I am a Full Spectrum Doula, covering birth, postpartum and bereavement. I provide emotional, physical and educational support to people transitioning through their pregnancy.  Prior to becoming a doula, I've spent years working in mental health and addiction recovery. Unlike most, my doula journey stemmed from being hypervigilant about starting my own family. Instead of accepting fear, I became educated which allowed me to lean into my community and remove the uncertainty. I received my initial training in 2020 and since then I have added Childbirth Education and Placenta Encapsulation. 


As a doula, I am here to help people embrace their pregnancy with confidence. I will not minimize any emotions, fears or pains but rather normalize your experience and help you activate your autonomy as you prepare for your baby. I strive to make every step personalized and intentional. I enjoy helping people tailor their experiences so that they feel empowered and in tune with their bodies. While my work primarily focuses on the comfort and preparation of the birthing person, I also work to maintain an environment in which family members also feel educated and supported.
