Oshun Family Center is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. It was birthed from an experience by the founder Saleemah J. McNeil, she suffered a traumatic birth in 2006 while delivering her son. From suffering severe preeclampsia to an emergency c-section, Saleemah has worked hard to recover from this experience. This experience increased her drive to make a change in the field of maternal and child health and wellness. Saleemah obtained several positions in women’s health over the last decade such as a Birth/Postpartum Doula (no longer practicing), Lactation Consultant, and more recently a Marriage and Family Therapist. As a direct service worker, she identified a need that was not being met and through support, encouragement, and training, twelve years later, Oshun Family Center was born.
