Meet Deanna Foster
Deanna is a ProDoula Certified Postpartum and Infant Care Doula and Certified Breastfeeding Counselor. She is currently working towards obtaining her International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) credential so that she can provide clinical care and support for postpartum families in all their infant feeding journeys.
After the birth of her first child, Deanna felt like God had specifically called her to the role of motherhood. She enjoyed her own postpartum experience though it proved challenging; learning how to recover from birth and care for an infant for the first time. Even with a strong support system, she came face to face with the realities of how little she was prepared for this time, how little those around her knew how to best support and care for her during this time, as well as how to navigate the challenges and pressures society places on new parents today. Deanna believes that through her experience, God has given her a gift to empathize, care for, and support new families, meeting them wherever they are on their journey in parenthood. She feels it’s important that new parents feel empowered and know that God sees them, loves them, and chose them to parent their individual child or children.
“He tends to his flock like a shepherd; he gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart; he gently leads those that have young.” Isaiah 40:11
When she is not snuggling sweet babies or helping new parents feed their babies, Deanna is raising 3 children with her husband, Kevin. They are passionate Braves and UGA football fans, GO DAWGS! Deanna enjoys spending time with her family, reading new books on her kindle, playing board games, and has recently gotten very into sourdough, ask her about her starter.
