Relevant volunteer or advocacy work

Brianna is a Founder, Patient Advocate, Birth-Doula, Certified Family Partner, National Author, and Public Speaker. She raises PPCM Awareness through her non-profit LETSTALKPPCM. The organization captures the stories of countless women impacted by pregnancy-induced heart failure across the nation. As an African-American woman, she also works to address the systematic racism many expecting mothers face. Brianna experienced postpartum hemorrhage and was diagnosed with Peripartum Cardiomyopathy (PPCM), an often unrecognized and misdiagnosed type of heart failure which occurs during pregnancy or up to 6 months postpartum. The condition weakens the heart muscle and causes the heart to become enlarged. As a result, the heart can't pump blood properly to the rest of the body. Three years before she developed the condition, her older sister (Crystal) went into sudden death six months after giving birth. Due to doctors not being aware of this disease, Crystal passed away. Brianna's story has been highlighted through the media, and across the nation. She's been a part of NBC News, Baylor Scott & White, The Press Association in London, UK, ACOG, CDC, Texas Department Health & Human Services, Popular Science and many other affiliated organizations. She works alongside many physicians nationwide, informing them on PPCM and how to better care for pregnant women with cardiovascular disease. Brianna is now considered fully recovered from Peripartum Cardiomyopathy but continues to spread awareness for other women like herself, her late sister, and healthcare.

Brianna was absolutely amazing. I had the pleasure of hiring Brianna as my doula to support me in the delivery/postpartum stages of my Babygirls arrival, August 13. She was very professional but also gave a personal vibe, so I didn't feel like I was talking to a doctor about my personal concerns but a girlfriend. She was always available wether a text or phone call away. She was knowledable and good at sending visual references I could refer back to. I highly recommend hiring Brianna as your doula. She made my 1st pregnancy easy and memorialable for a life time. 

Thank you so much Brianna & God Bless you

Brianna was nothing but a Godsend, much more than just my doula. This was my first time being able to carry my baby to term. My gestational journey was hard and definitely what I envisioned for myself. She was an entire support system on her own. She provided resources to help me wie was a true advocate for me during and after my delivery. She was so sweet and a true blessing.

Brianna was great, she went above and beyond with her service and really assisted in the process of labor and giving birth. She is very professional and has a true heart for helping in any way that she can. We appreciated having her for our first birth. We pray the out of hospital experience for her really excelled her reach and that she gained even more knowledge to assist with her future Doula needs for other families. Brianna was very engaged, involved, and focused on how she could assist in anyway possible. I highly suggest Brianna for all of your Doula needs.

Brianna is such an amazing soul. The compassion she has for others is amazing. God has truly called her to help others. She has been through so much in life but it has never stopped her strive and ambition to help others. If anything, it brought her to her purpose in life. I am so proud to see that she is doing what she loves to do.

Absolutely amazing! She is so kind and definitely someone you want in your corner while you give birth or even after birth! Some people don't realize the complications that can happen during or shortly after delivery and it's a great idea to hire someone like Brianna! She is very knowledgeable should a problem arise and will fight along side you to ensure the best birth experience! Highly recommend her! ??
