Porsche the Doula

Compassionate and expert care for expecting mothers and their partners. Supporting families in the Greater Philadelphia Area.

Porsche the Doulas’ passion for maternal justice, birth support, and normalizing breastfeeding comes from years of being a childcare provider and learning from the mothers of children she cared for. From nanny care (that began as a teenager) to offering postpartum doula support (before she knew what a Doula was!) Porsche learned a ton about the physical and emotional journey of women during pregnancy and after. During her college days Porsche took a class on Maternal Nutrition and became fascinated with pregnancy. This new found love sent her on a mission to understand the basics of maternal health and ways she could share knowledge with others. In her early 20s a desire to pursue a MPH and travel across the country to support friends while pregnant and shortly after birth grew but was put on hold when other opportunities opened soon after graduation.

After a disappointing and traumatic birth experience in October of 2017 Porsche sought to better understand medical interventions, the mishandling of women of color, and ways to better educate her community. That spark from over 10 years ago was reignited and her formal training journey began. She was accepted to participate in Maternity Care Coalition’s Breastfeeding Peer Counselor training program (graduated June 2018). Soon after she pursued Doula Training with PALS at the University of Pennsylvania (graduated Sept. 2018).

Porsche the Doulas’ mission is to see all women of color educated and armed with confidence to advocate for and demand their desired birth experience. Through her live and virtual services she supports mothers and their families with compassion, love, and evidence-based strategies.

By Design Birth & Photography

Providing HypnoBirthing, birth and postpartum doula and photography services in South Jersey and the Great Philadelphia region.

Hey there! I’m Ebony and I’m a firm believer that your journey into motherhood, from conception to birth and beyond, is truly one of the most transformative and remarkable experiences you’ll ever partake in!  This has been my experience with each of my babies I've birthed and I believe that your birth can truly be an amazing and rewarding experience for you too! Believe it or not, you're already "pre-wired" with all the necessary things it takes to have an amazing birth...but because of the culture we live in, you might need some help with "awakening" those innate abilities that lie dormant within you! 

That's where I come in!  I help expectant parents create confident and joyous prenatal and birth experiences, while capturing the beauty and strength of those moments.

I’d love to serve you in this way with my services, including: Mongan Method HypnoBirthing® Childbirth Education classes, Birth Doula support, and Maternity, Birth and Family Photography sessions.

I’d be so honored to have the special privilege to walk with you through this precious time in your life and I look forward to meeting with you soon!
