Natural Birth Doulas Birth Control Midwives Featuring "Tiny and Brave Holistic Services" and "The Earthly Mother"
Tiny And Brave:
Barbara Verneus is a trained doula since 2004. She was embraced by her mentor and midwife Memaniye Cinque in Brooklyn, NY and through her was introduced to her first birth. It was there that Barbara knew she wanted to become a midwife. In 2006, Barbara went overseas through the African Birth Collective to Senegal, West Africa assisting midwives in labor and delivery. In 2008, she obtained a Graduate certificate from Boston University in Maternal and Infant Care in Public Health. On May 7th, 2016 Barbara received her Master's in Counseling with a concentration in Marriage and Family. Barbara has also written for Mater Mea; Mothering Naturally, Black Women Birthing Justice; MadameNoire and #NoPrivateParts. But her biggest accomplishment is having her daughter Glorious-Zoëlle on June 17th, 2014. This was the pinnacle event in her life that confirmed why she should finally become a midwife, now or never. She relocated to Austin, TX from the east coast to follow her dream of being a Certified Professional Midwife. She is currently enrolled in Mercy In Action's online Midwifery program while apprenticing at MotherBloom Midwifery & Holistic Health Services.
