PhDoula: Push Out that Dissertation and keep your balance with my Love and Support!
A doula is a person who assists and supports someone while they are giving birth so that they can have their ideal birth experience and focus on creating a beautiful relationship with that which they have brought to life! Wouldn’t it be great to have someone on your team accountable SPECIFICALLY TO YOU (not caught up in the desires of the department etc) to have your back as you push out this piece of original knowledge and move on into the world that your ideas will make possible!? Wouldn’t it be great to have a person making sure you keep your ideal balance in the sometimes toxic environment of ABD life? That’s me!
Here are the elements of the PhDoula program:
If your dissertation or thesis research is related to Black women, motherhood, Caribbean women’s literature, diaspora, activist publishing, print culture, activism, queer theory or any related topic, I would love to read your dissertation/thesis proposal, a chapter of the dissertation or (in some cases) the whole dissertation to give specialized feedback.
Belly Blessings include:
- One reading of your document with written feedback and comments.
- One phone call to discuss questions and next steps.
- A song dedication to keep you moving on your inspired path!
Rates: $25-45/hour plus page legnth

It’s that time! Get your dissertation out of your big brain and into the world where it belongs!
I wrote my dissertation while at the same time opening up a community school, traveling the country on a speaking tour to raise money for my national experiential archive project and making a long-distance relationship into BLISS! For many of us the dissertation process takes forever because we stall by reading more, doubting ourselves more and believing in ourselves LESS. This specific accountability coaching series is designed to remind you that YOU ARE PREPARED to write your dissertation and YOU DO HAVE THE TIME to get it done. And I am here to metaphorically rub your back and feed to you ice chips aka to provide writing accountability exercises and coaching calls to make sure you get it done and are prepared to make the most of it for yourself, your future and your community!
As with everything, I am called to work with a select group of visionary under-represented graduate students with inspiring projects. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to set up an appointment for a $25 assessment call!
