Jackline Akoth Shida

Offering on-demand postpartum doula services in the Seattle area, specialising in serving East African mothers, but also working with families of all colors, origins, nationalities, socio-economic status, etc. 

Jackline is a community-based doula providing services to East African women. She is fluent in Swahili and has a deep understanding of the challenges faced by African women navigating the US healthcare system, as well as the specific challenges these women face when giving birth.

Jackline has deep roots back in Kenya. This allows her to understand both the Kenyan birth experience and how vastly different it is from the American birth experience. She can help bridge the gap between the two and provide profound comfort to new and expecting mothers.
