Welcoming Women to Motherhood!
Akwaaba means Welcome!
Becoming a mother can be exciting and overwhelming, by providing education and support to a new mother we can make the transition to motherhood a lot easier. We are welcoming a mother to motherhood by helping mothers during their prenatal and postpartum periods.
Receiving support from a childbirth educator, doula
and an IBCLC, International Board Certified Lactation Consultant on staff will assist a mother with her childbirth, breastfeeding and newborn questions and concerns.
We support breastfeeding families and strive to make breastfeeding a cultural norm. Breastfeeding is the optimum way to provide nutrition and bonding to your baby. Akwaaba Mama Support Services is dedicated to supporting and helping mothers as they go through their breastfeeding journey. By providing prenatal education, home visits, hospital visits, and community support groups, we begin to normalize breastfeeding. These services can change maternal and infant health outcomes in many families.
