Motivated by a passion to help pregnant families experience safe and healthy births, Lakisa Muhammad serves the community as a Lamaze International childbirth educator, DONA certified doula, and a student midwife with the Phoenix Birth Foundation. Using her knowledge and training, she works to address and debunk myths and misconceptions replacing them with facts and timeless traditions that lead to better decision making and better outcomes for birthing families. Lakisa becomes your cheerleader, a well of information, a gentle reminder, and a competent, trusted member of your birth team. She is there to also support and offer suggestions to grandmas, aunties, cousins, and besties. 

When she's not teaching or at a birth, Lakisa enjoys spending time with her husband, Dewayne, their 3 children, Amir, Yasina, and Hassana, and the family furbaby, Myra. Lakisa is on a quest to see the world, so travel is a must. She also has a not so secret affinity for reality tv!
