I am the founder of Barakah's Doula and the BMBK initiative, a certified full-spectrum doula, childbirth educator, Holistic womb therapist, reiki master, and meditation teacher.
Born in London, England, I spent my childhood traveling the Middle East with my family experiencing life around students of knowledge from different cultures and walks of life. There I spent time with women of God and going through a period of tarbiyyah "spiritual training". I was able to memorise and study books like Imam Nawawis fourth Hadith and Al Burda as well as duff (drum) playing.
After moving to Yemen to study Dar Al-Zahraa in Tareem, I began volunteering in the local clinic and was trained by a local doctor to take vitals and perform injections and cannula insertions. I the was requested to volunteer in the student clinic in Dar Al Zahra boarding school. This dive into health care steered my life into the direction of further study and the desire to aid people in a holistic way as I experienced the effects of western medicine first hand and was extremely deterred by the lack of holistic care.
I later qualified as a doula and CBE and began serving women in the Middle East and West Africa. After leaving Saudi Arabia I spent seven months working in a rural clinic supporting the local midwife in the Mauritanian desert.
My spiritual background began to grow as I dove into new-age Buddhist practices. I felt driven to explore my womb health and used rituals like meditation and energy healing. After my second 10-day silent meditation retreat I dove into using Islamic education to find the similarities between new-age spirituality and Islamic traditions and began implementing them into my healing work.
Barakah's doula then morphed and grew into a holistic healing hub for women rather than its previous intention of only supporting pregnant mothers.
I currently am studying to become a certified midwife, travel to volunteer in clinics whilst supporting clients and serving women through holistic therapy, fertility, and doula services.
I hold monthly women's only healing circles, facilitates workshops, and performs public lectures and workshops centred around female holistic healing. The mission is to provide more women with knowledge of womb healing from an Islamic perspective and I am working on creating the first Islamic reiki course, publishing books, and holding my first in-person ladies-only retreat.
