Folade (fo-lah-day) is my birth name. Yoruba for crowned, or This child is returning honor to the family. I am a mother of two fun and kind teens, and it was their births that led me to Reiki, to pack something additional for their care and healing in the Momma basket, It was my son's birth experience that led me to becoming a Doula. I had two midwives with him, so I knew the benefit firsthand of having personal and tender birthing support from women trained in this Ancient way of bringing babies in as sacred service work. Work in which you curate a holding space for the parents to nurture this embryo into its breath and to its mother's breast. I needed to do that for other women, other parents. From this goal, Adé Doula Wellness was born, named by my sister. Adé means, crowned in the Yoruba language and it is the crowning of the baby the family awaits.
It was my grandmother who passed the Mediumship through. It was her who saw I was holding the inner voice heirloom she'd allowed me to witness, five, ten, fifteen years old. We'd talk about apparition, how to communicate with our Ancestors, what to say to them, what to not say. How to hold them in a space and listen. I had an affinity for my Ancestors as early as I could speak. My bedtime stories were their life stories. Gram was a powerful story teller.
Along the way, I have developed experience and practice in crystals, Ayurvedic healing therapy, Aura Photography and translation, Akashic Records, and a lifelong study of apothecary exploration and lifestyle, Before my son's birth, I created handmade body products that were sold in boutiques in Seattle, Hawaii, Chicago and Vancouver British Columbia. This year, I return to the curation of handmade wellness products with my Infusion offerings available here. Over the next year, I will float out a growing product line of honey and oil infusions for your wellness lifestyle. You Deserve Wellness!
