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



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.



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.



Birthing your baby is a rite of passage whether vaginal or cesarean, medicated or non-medicated. And, depending on your birth outcome it can bring up a normal flood of mixed emotions. Birth Story Listening offers a one on one listening technique designed specifically for birth. If you feel stuck or troubled by a particular aspect of your experience, this process may help you find insight, new perspective, and a sense of peace.  Or, if you'd rather chat about your wonderful experience, we are happy to share in the excitement with listening ears!  A Birth Story Listening Session lasts approximately 45-60 minutes in the privacy of your home.  This is a complimentary session when you hire a birth doula.  If you'd like more information, please contact Claudia Tillman at (404) 213-0026.

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.
