I love being involved in my local community of Cherry Hill, New Jersey. Spending much of my time as a community leader, organizing youth groups, community events and helping with refugees. I am also a founder of the local home-school group ‘South Jersey Muslim Homeschoolers’ to support moms and their families. My commitment to empowering and educating families has even seen me featured in regional press like the ‘Philadelphia Inquirer’. Not to mention being booked to speak at institutions such as Rutgers University on topics such as doula work, motherhood, teenage development, and community outreach. I also just took the position of the USA AMANI Workshop Coordinator!

Evana helped me as a postpartum doula and she was AMAZING!! She worked hard and efficiently to help with whatever I needed around the house. Each day I would come up with a long list of things she could do, far more than I thought she could do in the time she'd be here. Each day, she'd finish the list in half of her time (or less) and ask what else she could do!! Evana was wonderful with my new baby, soothing and entertaining her when I needed to rest, and helping me and building my confidence in myself as I cared for the baby. As a mother of a large family, she was a great source of advice. I appreciated that she only offered advice when I asked for it, so that I didn't feel judged or questioned, but totally supported in the decisions I was making. During a time when my adult interactions were nil, she was also a friend, a great listener and so fun to chat with! I'm so grateful Evana was my postpartum doula and I continue to turn to her for advice when new challenges arise. She's exceptional!
Evana exceeded all expectations. I was a bit hesitant for my wife with this pregnancy as she had really bad experiences with her past two pregnancies. Evana was able to provide a relaxing experience and coached my wife through everything. She is super responsive and follows up regularly to check on every one. She taught us things that we never would of thought of and she provided us information that truley was a blessing. I could not say anything bad, I feel we have gained a friend through this amazing experience. We HIGHLY recommend Evana
Evana is absolutely amazing! She did not waste a second to help me. She came right in and started cleaning and making me food without me even asking. She does so much to make sure that new moms are taken care of so they can recover. And in addition to organizing my house and cooking for me and for the family, she of course helped me with the baby. She took care of the baby so I could sleep. And helped me take care of my toddler. She taught me so much and she is an amazing advocate for women. I highly recommend her as she is very knowledgeable, confident, and caring. She saved me during those first difficult weeks and she can't for you too.
Having a doula makes all the difference. And Evana...her confidence is so assuring; but more than that, contagious. She enlightened me to so many things I didn't know with my 1st. Birthing classes opened my eyes. Allah (swt) in all His mercy, created our bodies exactly perfect for the tests it meant to bare. I don't want to sound cliche even though I mean every word of it. I just want whoever is reading this to understand that sometimes its hard to give yourself credit and care for yourself the same way we would care for others... especially your baby. Having a doula will give you support & peace of mind that someone completely understands what youre hoping for during your labor and delivery; and will advocate for you. Another thing that Evana helped me with was planning a full plan; which to be completely honest with you, isnt my forte. Her giving ideas of what to organize & plan really helped me and the people around me know roles and responsibilities. I especially appreciate the fact that she educated me on options I never knew existed and helped me plan accordingly. Lastly, Evana can read your emotions and is amazingly flexible. She helped me especially when I needed a distraction from the very painful contractions. Just ask her to tell you a story.
My husband's comment about Evana is that he was happy that I was getting what I needed and that he could see a big difference between my births. He was there for all the birthing/prep classes and felt better informed thus more involved and included in decisions. You and your husband being calm and present in the moment; it builds trust & love like nothing else.
So yeah, Evana helped me realize my potential and supprted me through it all. I consider her amazing to say the least.
Evana was a life saver in a time when I needed one most. After an extremely traumatic experience related to the birth of my first baby, I suffered from PPD and PPA. Evana’s energy, positivity, and helpfulness was a breath of fresh air that lifted my spirits and gave me hope that things would get better. They absolutely did. Most importantly, Evana treated my baby like her own. My baby loved her and you know babies are the best judges of character! Thank you, Evana, for being the most wonderful gift I could ever receive in my time of need!
Evana was the most incredible doula I have ever worked with! First off she was flexible about the timing that I requested and also reached out to me a few days before her first visit to see if I needed anything. Then she showed up early and texted instead of ringing the bell in case my other kids were sleeping, which was so considerate of her. She was extremely enthusiastic and caring from the moment I met her. She went above and beyond in terms of taking care of me with meal preparation and doing dishes too! I can't say enough positive things about her attitude and willingness to help. She was so proactive and took the best care of my baby, talking to him and treating him like her own. I would highly recommend her to anyone and happy to answer any questions.
