Birth and Postpartum Doulas

MEET Rachel

I am a ProDoula certified labor and postpartum doula. I have a passion for pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding, and new babies! I am a wife and mother of 2 beautiful children. My own pregnancy and birth experiences led me down a path of an unbridled passion for all things pregnancy and baby related. I am currently working on becoming a childbirth educator and certified in aromatherapy. When I’m not supporting birthing and new families, I enjoy spending time with my husband and 2 children and going for walks through my neighborhood.


I am a ProDoula certified labor and postpartum doula. As a mother of 3 beautiful daughters, my goal has been to help them become strong women that can take on this world. In doing so, I also realized that I had a drive, a passion, to help other women. My own pregnancy, birth, and postpartum experiences have provided me with the courage, knowledge, and empathy to work alongside mothers and assist in their wondrous journeys. When I’m not following my passion as a doula, you can find me teaching my girls important lessons in life, reading, watching documentaries, and enjoying Metro Atlanta.
