We Are Childbirth Specialists Who Offer Support in Atlanta and Athens.


Birth Doula Support

We believe in the time-honored practice of supporting women from pregnancy, through birth and into motherhood.  A Birth Doula (also known as a Labor Doula) supports a couple through pregnancy and birth. Our birth doulas act as a birth coach, advocate and are knowledgeable about the facets of labor as well as the medical or home birth environments. Birth doulas support the expectant mother and birth partner as they experience their unique journeys through pregnancy and birth. Set up a free consultation.

Postpartum Doula Support

Relax confidently into motherhood with the experienced care of a Postpartum Doula to help facilitate the bonding process. A Postpartum Doula helps new mothers ease into her new role and learn how to fully enjoy the early weeks with her baby. Postpartum Doulas help with baby care, mother-baby attachment, light housework, siblings, allowing the mother time to rest and heal and much more. A Postpartum Doula’s job is to foster the bond between mother and baby so when the doula leaves for home, the mom is empowered to care for the baby on her own.  Read more on how to contract with a postpartum doula for in-home support.

Bereavement Doula Support

When couples experience a loss event, whether it is a miscarriage, malformation, stillbirth, etc, it is important that they get help with their grief as soon as possible.  When a stillbirth occurs, Michela Madison-Towne will come to the hospital or birth site at any hour of the day or night, as she would for any other birth, to meet with the parents and provide immediate help in dealing with the loss of their baby.  She is able to assist couples in planning their baby's funeral in ways that will leave them with some sweet memories to balance the terrible sorrow.  Additionally, she can be of help to parents who are "stuck" in the grieving process and unable to go on with the rest of their lives.  Michela is caring and sensitive to the needs of grieving parents in various circumstances.

Placenta Encapsulation

While it is best to use the placenta as soon as possible, it can be beneficial months later as long as it has been preserved properly. Placenta Encapsulation is the most popular form of consumption for women who want to take advantage of the long-term benefits of harnessing and utilizing the nutrients and hormones from their placentas. Some of the reported benefits include naturally increased milk production, reduced post-partum depression, speedier return of the uterus to its pre-pregnancy state, replenished iron and energy, lessened post-natal bleeding, eased symptoms of menopause, and more.

If you want to take advantage of Placenta Encapsulation, it is very important to make the arrangements with a qualified specialist prior to your birth. For more information, please contact 404-692-0678 or email

Birth Photography

Maternity and birth photography capture your story as your family grows by freezing moments you will want to remember forever. During your labor and birth, it frees up your support (partner and doula) to focus on you, and allows the beautiful moments and emotions of the day to be documented so they will never be forgotten. To learn more about maternity and birth photography here in Atlanta, please visit: or contact to set up your complimentary consultation.
