Who is Doula NaConda?
NaConda is the owner of Nikkahndah Birth Services. She is married to her high school sweetheart of over 15 years and they reside with their five children & one dog in Southeast Texas. She is a DONA trained Birth Doula, a Community Lactation Educator, and a Childbirth Educator. One of her goals as a birth worker is to decrease the maternal disparities in the black community by providing services so that families can be better informed of their choices during the birth of their beautiful blessings! She also hopes to serve families in her area that may not have access to the support that a Doula can provide including helping to decrease the rate of Cesarean sections, helping to decrease the need for episiotomies, & helping to decrease the number of infant and maternal mortalities by educating, empowering, and encouraging mom and families.
Where does the name "Nikkahndah" come from?
NaConda was named by her Nigerian uncle. He always referred to her as "Nikki" before she was born, but he & NaConda's mother never got a chance to discuss the actual spelling of this beautiful name, so her mom spelled this name how many ethnic names were spelled in the early 80s using hard syllables and the middle upper-case letter (NaConda), not the way it was supposed to be spelled (Nikkahndah). NaConda knew that the meaning of her name brought her purpose to full circle, especially serving as a doula. Nikkahndah means "mother's gift" in Nigerian and NaConda intends to put those words into action by being a gift to mothers and helping mothers birth their gifts into this world.
