Harmony Ogunbade

Harmony (she/her) joined Birthways in 2021 as a Postpartum, Labor Support, and Sibling Care Doula, and is certified as a full-spectrum birth justice doula. Her passion, knowledge, and warmth are evident in her commitment to continuing to learn and grow in this work and be trusted support for expectant and new families.

Harmony is also a mother of two – she remembers how impactful the support she received during birth and postpartum was for her, and is so excited to be able to be a supportive presence for others. She loves supporting expectant parents and families through physical and emotional support, sharing information, facilitating communication with the medical care team and family, as well as navigating health care systems and supports. She has experience in hospital and home birth settings.

The breadth and depth of knowledge on newborn/infant development makes Harmony an amazing resource. It is in her ability to connect with the individual newborn and parent that she’s able to build lasting bonds with the families she’s cared for. Harmony brings a calming presence amidst the transitions of parenting, making her a welcome support in the home.

Harmony also has experience supporting children with special needs, including sensory and developmental challenges. She is warm, friendly, and engaging – we know you’ll enjoy connecting with her!

I feel so alive in the role of service. I am passionate about parents being well informed and empowered to have a healthy, safe birth. Whenever I have a chance to engage with an expectant or new parent I feel such privilege and responsibility. Babies give me incredible peace and I love learning new things about their growth and development – and oh, that baby smell!
