Birth Doula and Childbirth Educator
My name is Erica Botha and I am a birth doula and childbirth educator supporting Atlanta and surrounding areas. I would love the opportunity to serve you and your family during this important life transition! I offer my support at hospital or home births, medicated or unmedicated births, VBAC, and cesareans and anything else in between. I would love to chat more about how having a doula can be an asset to you, your family, and your birth team.
Birth Doula Support:
2 prenatal visits to discuss your birth preferences, help you to create a birth plan, navigate the changes that are to come within your family unit, and narrow down what to bring in your birth and postpartum bag.
Continuous labor support such as comfort measures, affirmations, and information during the birth of your child.
1-2 hours of postnatal support upon the delivery of your baby to help with infant feeding and whatever else you may need to get situated with your baby.
1 postpartum visit to check in after birth to support any infant feeding needs, discuss the details of your birth, and refer you to any resources within the community that you may need during your transition into motherhood.
Support via text, phone, and email upon signing contract.
Immediately on call to support your birth, not just two weeks before and after your estimated due date.
Compassionate, unbiased, and professional support throughout your pregnancy and beyond!
"Erica was such a calming presence during my vbac. She helped me stay calm and present the entire time and was willing to help my family and I in anyway she could. She was such an advocate for me even before my birth began and continued to help afterwards with breastfeeding and checking in on baby and me. I’d recommend Erica to anyone about to give birth. She is so sweet and helpful!"
"Having Erica at my wife’s birth was a huge help. She helped my wife with comfort measures for my wife and also helped us with our oldest child at times so I could be with my wife in the moment. She was very helpful and willing to lend a hand in anyway that she could."
