Doulas in the Atlanta Area

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I have a friend who lives outside of Atlanta who is looking for a doula. I am a doula here in Texas, but do not have any recommendations for them in Georgia. Does anyone have any doulas that they have had a good experience with? BTW She is planning a home birth. Thanks!

My mom acted as my doula so I didn't hire one here but my hypnobabies instructor is also a doula and she's delivered most of her little ones at home.

She was amazing as an instructor and if my mom couldn't have been there I definitely would have hired her.

Try Labor of Love. They have 11 or 12 doulas, and have a tea every other month for moms to meet the doulas and choose one, if they find someone they like.

the Georgia Birth Network has a big referrals list, including experienced doulas as well as doulas in training who still need certifying births

My midwife's apprentice/assistant is also a doula and they primarily homebirth, so I think she'd be a wonderful option. I've been so happy with their care and support - she's become like a good friend to me and I'm totally confident with my birth. We're on the north/west side of Atlanta, but they work with women all over the Atlanta area and on all sides of it.

Her email is mamajunebugjones@yahoo.com. I can get a phone number for you and any other information you want/need. And if you have specific questions, I can help you with that, too.

Decatur Doulas

Check out the website for Decatur Doulas as well (www.decaturdoulas.com). They have several doulas in the cooperative and a range of prices for their services. Although the name is Decatur Doulas, many of them will travel outside of the downtown area for births.

It depends upon which side of Atlanta she is on. I'm a doula south of Atlanta.

I absolutely loved, loved, loved my doula. She is a crunchy one too (& I'm not crunchy, but loved everything about her). Her name is Nadine Laflamme & she is from Canada (she has a bit of a french accent). She was so energetic, knowledgable and just fantastic. She was great with the hospital staff (which is a MUST), she was great with my DH and help him help me. She was familiar with hypnobabies and helped me to focus & get very centered. There did come a point when I wanted drugs and she worked with me to slow me down, concentrate and before I knew it I was dilated a 10. I had a fantastic natural chidbirth & I COULD NOT have done it without her. Her email is nadine@bearingtogether.com or #678-628-7313

Nadine is one of the doulas who works with me, and she's really fabulous.

Anoher for Nadine. I am now a doula myself and I can say I would hire her again in a hearbeat!

Hi,  I am a DONA trained doula in the greater Atlanta area who has experience with both home & hospital births, VBAC, water births, and belly casting. I offer a free, no obligation informational meeting to pregnant moms. I do not accpt more than four clients a month, so I do not overbook. My children are grown & no longer living at home so I can concentrate on my clients. If your friend is interested, she can contact me directly. I can also provide her with references of my former clients.

Thank you for your interest,

Michela
