About Us

Who we are...

*Our Founder, Yanna Nicole, Certified Full Spectrum Doula, Certified Lactation Counselor, and Childbirth Educator Yanna is a Full Spectrum Doula serving the 757 and surrounding areas of VA. Yanna started the BCBW Network because she realized there weren’t any organizations who connected birthworkers of faith, as well as Black birthworkers. In the beginning stages of her Doula practice, Yanna encountered quite a few families who hadn’t hired a doula until late in their pregnancy because they couldn’t find one that supported their views and could relate to them. After having this experience multiple times, she decided to create a space where all birth workers who are Black and Christian can be found in one place. Yanna also wanted this to be a space where Black Christian Birthworkers can come together and network, connect, share resources, learn, and grow from each other.
