Womb Prep was founded by Geri Alicea in January 2016. Being on a Journey to Motherhood herself, Geri knew firsthand what it was like to feel completely alone while going through one of the worst situations in her life. Around this time, Geri experienced a season of depression and one day she decided to study women in the bible who had trouble conceiving just like her. And because she didn't want to study these women alone, she created a Facebook Group so others could join her in her study. It was in this study that the ministry Womb Prep as well as her book "Overcoming Infertility: Faith While You Wait" were birthed.
Since doing that study in 2016, Geri has made it her personal mission to make infertility LOUD and let other women know that they are not alone on their journey. Geri has made a commitment to "normalize" the conversation surrounding infertility so women struggling can talk about it instead of hiding from it. Infertility is hard and emotional but it needs to be talked about... openly.. and without shame. She believes that normalizing the conversation of infertility not only helps those dealing with it but it also helps those that aren't. The truth of the matter is that infertility is such a taboo subject that a lot of individuals not dealing with it don't know how to appropriately respond to it. But Geri is determined to do her part to remedy that.
Brittney King is a Creative Visionary, Author, Spokenword Artist, and CEO of Kingdom Knot Events. At a young age, Brittney experienced sexual abuse which led to years of her suffering in silence. She was labeled barren, unable to have children, and incapable of conceiving. For years she felt she was cursed although she read of extraordinary healing occurrences in the Bible. Experiencing God’s miraculous healing as a 6 year breast cancer survivor, she expected that her womb would be healed too, unfortunately, it wasn’t God’s timing. Or so she thought... In December 2020 God performed an unusual miracle during a deliverance service at her local church, Thy Kingdom Has Come International Ministries. Upon her last doctor's appointment of the year, she was surprisingly informed that not only was she fertile, but all the years worth of trauma and damage were no longer physically present, she was healthy and healed.
Brittney serves as the President of Womb Prep and focuses on Event Operations. Her energetic personality and God-given creativity makes her an invaluable asset to the Womb Prep team. Brittney is excited to use her expertise as an event planner to oversee both virtual and in-person events.
