About Nicky

Hello there! My name is Nicky Dawkins and I am a Full Spectrum Reproductive Health Doula based in sunny South Florida. In addition to my Doula work, I'm the proud Founder of PERIOD Miami and serve as Vice President on the Miami Diaper Board. I am also the mother of two very energetic and adorable children. Both of my parents hail from Jamaica and I am 1st generation Jamerican 🙂 I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Communications from Florida International University and in Master's Degree in Music Business from Full Sail University.

Before making a major career change, I already had a huge passion for reproductive and maternal health, and always favored a holistic, Ayurvedic approach to healing. My friends would actually refer to me as the "period girl" which turned out to be fitting! I started a reproductive health blog while I was pregnant in 2015, and in 2017, I was awarded Best Health Blogger in South Florida by the Blogger Union. The rest is history!

I now proudly run my practice in Miami Shores, FL and have several programs that surround the wellness of women, covering everything from periods and fertility to birth and postpartum. Over the past 5 years I have had the honor of educating and empowering womb holders through my work. If you are looking to learn more about your body and magic it holds, you are in the right place!

My Professional Journey

Strength in Support

I have supported pregnant women and new moms as a professional Doula since 2017. Based in Miami, I provide moms with the emotional and physical support they need in order to have a gentle birthing experience and positive postpartum journey.

I also firmly believe in the power of COMMUNITY. I created Werk it Moms because I felt that there was no space for working mothers to connect, collaborate and grow their dreams. In addition to doula services, with Werk it Moms you also get the much needed value of community and continuous educational resources. Birth your baby and your business with us!
