Shindreia Chase

Birth and Postpartum Doula

"Your purpose is not only for you. Your purpose should nurture and help someone other than yourself".

Shindreia Chase specializes in Birth Doula work, but adores and provides a full spectrum of doula services.  

Using a holistic approach, she practices comfort measures physically and verbally, unique to the needs of each birthing person.

 

"With more respect and awareness of ancestral practices and black and brown community advocacy, the framework of birth and equality became more prevalent in my world. I am passionated about serving black and brown women in urban communities.

There is a great need to bridge the gap in racial and medical inequalities during labor. In birth work, I strive to overcome language barriers, ensuring that my clients have full and complete awareness of their bodily antonymy and choices."


Since early childhood, Shindreia has been fascinated by, and determined to learn, everything she can about childbirth. This has led her on a journey of education, internship, certification, and personal experience that brings her to serve as a Doula, during a time where she believes the world needs it most.

"The statement of one of my professors that so confidently said to me would continuously ring in my mind “ You will never get into medical school, black women don't belong there!”. Although I was crushed initially, I would love to send thanks. Because of him it pushed me to be who I KNEW I'd always wanted to be, “The Baby Whisperer”.

Shindreia considers her life dedicated to the betterment of humanity, and because "knowledge is power" she will learn everything she can about babies and birth.

"Have no fear, ShinDoula is here!! We are in this together!"
 

Shindreia is a native of West Baltimore, Maryland, where she learned and cultivated her love for the arts, nature, and all things ancestral. She is a devoted Auntie to 13 little people, Godmom to 4 & counting angels, and the sister of 8 warriors!

“Above and beyond expectations with such a peaceful ambience for learning “ -Micheal M. 4/2021

“Breastfeeding is going great!! I’m learning new positions and his latch has gotten better. Warm showers and putting breast milk on my nipples really helps with the soreness. Thank youuu so much !!” -Andrea 12/2020

“From the time my husband and I found out I was pregnant in 2016 Shindreia was one of the first people we shared the news with because we knew how influential and inspiring she would be on this journey.

 

She was 3 hours away from us but still communicated often and assisted me with the process of delivering at home for the first time. The day of my daughter’s birth we called her instantly because we knew it was time but even my midwife was doubting me.

 

Shindreia listened to my concerns and immediately directed me to the steps to keep my labor progressing. She was on speaker/FaceTime with my husband and I the entire time keeping both him and I calm through the experience. I can’t imagine not having her play such a critical part of that day and regardless of her distance she was available for us and provided so much support.

 

Trust me you will love going through this journey with her by your side and I will forever be thankful for her doula services! Love you sis!” -  Ayshia J.  8/2021
