Meet The Founder

Alreema Vining, Certified Doula Practitioner, MCH-CHW

Is the owner and founder of Nurturing BayBees and its subsidiaries. She is a Certified Doula Practitioner in New Jersey, Virgina and Maryland as well as a Certified Preconception Educator and Certified Family Coach. She is a mother of three children and one heavenly angel. Born and raised in Newark, NJ, Alreema knows firsthand how much urban, black/brown, and low-income communities are underserved. While she has over 10+ years of experience dealing with postpartum families - she took her first doula training in 2018. From there she has learned many skills, took plenty of trainings and met many people but her love for serving families has stayed the same.

 

Her story:

Suffering a miscarriage in 2016, being ignored in the ER, passing out from blood loss, having her two children witness this and being discharged 24 hours later with no follow-up. To getting pregnant three months later, having her rainbow baby in 2017, surviving a traumatic delivery and dealing with a yearlong battle of postpartum depression, and physical recovery. Alreema wants nothing less than the best for families and she wants it now.

While her story is not the face of Nurturing BayBees, it is the cause of change. To learn more about Doula Alreema visit: www.alreemavining.net
