My name is Lina Lauderdale and I am a DTI and Hypnobabies Certified Doula. I have been fascinated by the miracle of birth ever since I was a child. I was raised in Peachtree City, GA and got my degree in Marketing from the University of Georgia. After marrying my best friend and settling into our first home in Marietta,GA, I came to the realization that my passion has always been with babies, birth, and children. I found out about Doula Trainings International through a Hypnobabies instructor/Doula and have never been so happy about a decision in all my life. The knowledge I gained through that training was invaluable and I look forward to working with all the moms and babies through one of the most miraculous/happiest times of their lives.
