DR. DOULA SPEAKS!
Dr. Doula (Andrea Little Mason, Ed.D.) is an educator, scholar, researcher, speaker, and legacy builder who travels internationally to gain a greater understanding of the connectedness of women of African descent on the Continent and in the Diaspora. She encourages women to reach back to take hold of the best that previous generations have to teach, so they can be equipped to move forward and toward their full potentials. She shows them how to empower themselves as birthing mothers by reclaiming and embracing indigenous knowledge and practices that have been lost, stolen, surrendered, abandoned and forgotten. "SANKOFA" teaches us: "it is not taboo to go back and fetch what you forgot"... even if what you have forgotten is something as magnificent as BIRTH.
