Erykah Badu Agreed To Do The Strangest Thing For Fiance’ Of Her Ex-Boyfriend, D.O.C.
If you didn’t know, Erykah Badu is a Doula. Ms. Badu is a huge advocate for home-birthing, and after delivering all three of her children at home, she became a doula.
But the funny thing is that last year, D.O.C’s fiance’ was pregnant and Ms. Badu agreed to deliver their baby! Wow! Talk about relationship goals.
Erykah talks about how she became a doula;
My best friends, two of them – stic.man [of Dead Prez] and his wife Afya – were in labor and I was on a flight and he called me and said that, ‘Afya told me to let you know that she’s in labor.’ And I re-routed my flight – This was in 2001 – to go to be with them here in Brooklyn. And I just stayed up with her. Her labor was natural, for fifty-two hours. Fifty-two hours. And I stayed up with her. I didn’t get sleepy or anything. I was able to just be there for her, whatever it took – singing, coaching, walking, bouncing, massaging. I had just had my son, a live, natural birth at home as well, so I had a little bit of experience. After that, I felt that well I can do this. I can be the welcoming committee for new spirits coming in. That’s when I decided to start studying for it. I became a doula about five years ago.
Wait, there’s more…you MUST see what D.O.C. said about Erykah’s other 2 children’s fathers>>>
