Congratulations mama on your new baby! Now that all the friends and family know, it is time to start planning for this sweet baby! As your Atlanta maternity photographer, I always recommend you start with your doula or midwife! These women book up incredibly fast and I want to ensure you have the best support on your side during birth. The Atlanta Doulas is one of the best resources Atlanta has to offer for expecting moms.  Birth doula, Overnight doula, birth classes and placenta encapsulation are the four main offerings of The Atlanta Doulas.

Premier Birth Doula Package

Their premier birth doula package starts with a free consult in their cozy Atlanta office. This will help both of you ensure you are a great fit for each other. Over the next few months of your pregnancy, they will have endless resources in their curated library for you to read and prepare for your birth. Once you get late into your third trimester, you will meet again to go over your birth plan, what techniques and measures you want to use during your birth as well as finalize your personalized birth plan.  

When it is time for labor to start, they will be with you every step of the way  – physically and emotionally. Once your sweet baby is here, they will also stay 1-2 hours to help ensure a smooth transition into postpartum. If you would like additional postpartum visits, that can be set up with the Atlanta Doulas.

Postpartum Overnight Doula Services

A new baby is always an adjustment, regardless how many little ones you have. Postpartum overnight doula support is completely customized to meet the needs you have with your new baby. Light housekeeping, meal prep, basic lactation support and self-care are some of the services The Atlanta Doulas offer.

One area that many new moms struggle with is the overnight. We all need a good night sleep and that is exactly what they are here to help with. They will take care of your precious little one overnight while you focus on you and getting good rest. Their focus will all be on that sweet baby – feeding, soothing, swaddling, and diaper changes. They will provide notes in the morning so you know just when baby ate/slept etc.
