  • Virginia Ambassador

My name is Latonya Williams-West. I’m located in Chester, Virginia, with my husband and 17-year-old daughter. I am a state-certified Full Spectrum Doula, a pregnancy and infant loss awareness advocate, and a breastfeeding educator and mentor. I started my journey as a birthworker after 15 years as a healthcare worker and the loss of my second child Sarah Amelia. I wanted to honor her story and legacy by supporting and educating moms, and giving them resources and tools to better their birthing outcomes and save mom and babies lives which is how Latonya Deshelle, LLC was born.

Serving as an ambassador with Count the Kicks, I will continue my mission to work in my community, to create lasting change for the state and to bring more resources and legislation as we work together to eliminate racial disparities and prevent stillbirths across the state of Virginia.
