I'm working with someone who is in Stockbridge, GA (about 20 miles south of Atlanta). She wants a water birth if at all possible. Are there any birth centers in the Atlanta area? What about any hospitals that provide waterbirths? Also...what about GOOD in-hospital OBs/midwives? So if for some reason she can't find somewhere with waterbirth as an option, she'll at least have a good provider who will help her have a positive low-intervention birth. She said she doesn't want pitocin, no nursery for the baby, etc., but I do think she needs some good support because she sounds like she needs to be a little more informed on things so she can be more set and succeed...kwim?

Also, any doula recommendations? I wrote her back and asked if she would be interested in a doula if she had to birth in hospital and I'm waiting for a response, but I figured I would go ahead and ask. What's the average doula rate in the area? And if anyone knows of any low cost doulas or doulas that are attending births for free to be certified, that would be great.

they do waterbirths at south fulton regional, atlanta medical center, and north fulton regional. south fulton would be closest to her, Marsha Ford is the CNM who does them there. (Intown Midwifery at AMC, and Alpharetta Women's Specialists at n. fulton are the others)

the georgia birth network has a list of doulas including some still certifying who are taking reduced fee births - www.gabirthnetwork.com
