FAMILY PORTRAITS

 I am Qua Sharpe, the founder of my B.A.B.Y; Birthing A Better You,  and I am so thrilled to have you here!! Birthing A Better You, was birthed right after the birth of my beautiful daughter, Chrislyn Sharpe. My pregnancy and birthing experience were absolutely amazing, and I find joy in educating, supporting and assisting families to birth there way, with ease. My daughter really birthed a better me. Birthing her, I have learned how strong and brave I really am. I am still gaining new skills and strengths about myself as a person, wife, and mother that I never knew existed.

I was born and raised in High Point, North Carolina. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology minoring in child welfare. I have a Master’s Degree in Social Work and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and therapist. I am a Birth and Postpartum Doula and a Childbirth Educator. You really have the best of both worlds here in support of Maternal Health and Mental Health. I like to refer to myself as a “Theradoula”. I am so very enthusiastic about serving my community and assisting pregnant women in trusting their bodies, bond with their babies and begin their postpartum journey with pure bliss, love, happiness, and parent from a place of peace. 

I am the wife to my best friend, high school sweetheart and forever lover, Chris Sharpe.  I am the oldest sibling of four, so as you can imagine mothering came naturally.  I am a lover of all things baby, and I can spend an enormous amount of time discussing about the importance of mental health, pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding, postpartum and newborn care. I absolutely love to educate, I motivate, inspire, and care for others, I love reading, blogging and I enjoy spending time with family.
