Sekesa Berry is a Traditional Birth Attendant, trained in the ancient art of midwifery care, where women are nurtured and birth is sacred. She believes that every birth experience is unique for each woman and every baby deserves individual care. The ancient art of midwifery has taught Sekesa the importance and necessity of wholistic service. With this knowledge and experience she works to help facilitate optimal birth outcomes for out-of-hospital births settings.
Giving birth to a baby is so much more than a physical phenomenon; it engages parents to be in a transformational experience. Labor and Birth are key life events full of emotion and meaning. I believe that every pregnant and laboring woman should have all of the care and support she needs during this vulnerable time in her life.
Sekesa became certified as a Doula in 2006 and began teaching childbirth education sessions at various community venues. She became a WIC Breastfeeding Peer Counselor in 2010 and went on to become certified as a Lactation Counselor in 2012. For over a decade, Sekesa has achieved a level of recognizable service to her community; volunteering countless hours at local libraries, community centers and department stores such as Babies 'R' Us. Her philanthropy continues as a board member of Bellies To Babies Foundation and an advisory board member of Families First Atlanta.
