Life and Work with Abena Adu

Today we’d like to introduce you to Abena Adu.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Abena. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I followed my intuition and began working in the childbirth industry in 2009, after the birth of my first child. My labor/delivery experience was not the best one and I noticed that I wasn’t alone. I would listen to the complaints of other women and I started to notice a pattern. Many women were dissatisfied with their experience, either while pregnant, in labor and/or during the postpartum phase. They’d experienced their concerns being ignored by some members in the medical establishments, a lack of support with breastfeeding, unnecessary cesareans, medical injuries, and even infant loss.

After becoming certified as a doula in 2013, I was ready to help women during childbirth, but to my surprise, I received an overwhelming response of calls from women who were suffering from fibroids, infertility, re-occurring miscarriages, PCOS, and more womb challenges. I then sought out some natural resources and began servicing clients with the vaginal steam treatments and wrote two books on womb wellness. I also founded and currently operate The Pregnancy and Womb Wellness Center in DFW.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Before helping other women, I had to step back and clearly focus on myself. I am a survivor of family violence and multi-generational sexual abuse. These both can create womb trauma and on top of that, doctors told my parents that I would not be able to have children when I was a child, but I vaginally birthed my children, easily without any complications and my last birth happened at home unassisted because labor progressed so quickly. I am a living miracle that the so-called impossible can become possible.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with The Pregnancy and Womb Wellness Center – tell our readers more, for example, what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
I serve women before, during, and after pregnancy. I am a lover of childbirth and have assisted over 100 women during that journey as well as with womb wellness. I travel across the country hosting womb wellness workshops, doing telephone consultations and I train other women on how to become a doula. I am most proud of my most recent accomplishment, becoming a published author.

Were there people and/or experiences you had in your childhood that you feel laid the foundation for your success?
Although my childhood was far from perfect, I was raised in a strict religious home with both hardworking parents and those two habits have kept me grounded. I have a solid spiritual foundation and I know how to maintain a good work ethic.
