About The Author
Alena Smith is the Author of Trust Your Strength and founder of 501 (c) (3) non profit organization, Trust Your Strength “Mommas & Miracles”. Alena holds many titles but her most important and meaningful title is being the mother of her two miracles (Wendell III) 8 and 2 year old (Charlie) alongside her husband Wendell Smith Jr. Alena and her family embarked on an unimaginable journey of experiencing the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) twice with both sons. It was after the experience of her youngest son Charlie who was born at 25 weeks weighing 1 pound and spending 328 days in the hospital before coming home, Alena established Trust Your Strength, to pay it forward, share her experiences, offer support and encouragement to other mothers. Trust Your Strength, provides transportation assistance, self-care packages & mental support to NICU families at Northside Hospital, Children’s Hospital of Atlanta, WakeMed Hospital & Nicklaus Children’s Hospital to name a few. Alena understands the emotional and mental support that is needed before and after a NICU experience and she has set out on a journey to educate and to be a vessel to let other mothers know they’re not alone. Alena has used her voice to create awareness and speak at several conferences, panel discussions, hospital events to have the uncomfortable discussion of maternal death rates, premature birth and the mental support that is needed especially in the African American community.
