Having Lauren as our doula was one of the best decisions we made for my fourth pregnancy. She was a supportive, informed, compassionate birth professional who we relied on every step of the way. She was patient and knew just what to do. I had back labor with a sunny side up baby and she was able to help mediate the pain and get me in positions to get things moving. My husband was grateful for the invaluable support during and after the birth. Lauren is a strong leader with a powerful voice. I highly recommend her as a doula. She knows what she’s doing and how to best meet the needs of the family she is supporting.

My husband and I are expecting our first baby and I can honestly say we are more than prepared for the birth of our baby. We took the childbirth classes with Tracey and Rachel. They were phenomenal! I would totally recommend taking a class with them if you are expecting. They really know their stuff!


Crystal was very helpful! We are so glad to have had someone at our home birth that had experience and could give us good advice for when to proceed with calling the midwife. My labor was very quick in my opinion so nothing really met my expectations. I was in my own head the whole time. My husband however was probably the one that benefited the most from our Doula. He was very thankful to have someone there to help him through everything!


My wife & I took classes here and we were very pleased and impressed with the knowledge, professionalism and personal warmth both Rachel & Tracey exuded. 5 stars, we highly recommend!


I highly recommend Rachel and Eva for any doula services for future mamas. They are knowledgeable, kind, and supportive. I reached out to Rachel during the last month of my pregnancy when Covid restrictions were lifted at the hospital I planned to give birth. She responded quickly and we met, my husband and I were confident that she was the right choice for us. This was my second pregnancy and I planned for a vbac after being manipulated into a unnecessary caesarean birth the first time for the doctors convenience. When I went into labor Rachel was there for me supporting me through labor at home for six hours of intense contractions. Her techniques and knowledge really helped me mentally and physically prepare for my birth. I wouldn’t have been successful without her help and guidance. I had a very quick labor and my baby girl was born shortly after we checked into the hospital. Rachel is the best and if you are looking for someone to help you get the birth you desire she will push and support you every step of the way. She was a blessing to my family.


I had an extremely fast labor that progressed so quickly that I didn’t quite make it out of the car at the hospital before my baby was born. Morgan stayed in communication throughout the whole process and stayed well beyond my 3rd stage to make sure all of my post-partum preferences were known and respected by hospital staff. Even though things happened quickly and wasn’t what we planned, Morgan stayed positive and reminded us of what really mattered – having a happy, healthy baby!


Rachel was my post-partum doula and she was a big help with my newborn baby during the tumultuous pandemic. Rachel is a very gentle and caring person and we very much enjoyed having her around. She’s very knowledgeable when it comes to taking care of a baby and she also focuses on maternal well-being. I can whole-heartedly recommend her services to anyone looking for a great and reliable doula in the Greater Atlanta area.


Rachel was absolutely a great doula to have had during our pregnancy and provided great help that prepared us for our birth. She was truly available at any time to answer any questions and to give helpful tips. Having picked a package that included the post partum shift was great also. I highly recommend North Georgia family doulas to any couple that is about to go through this blessing of a journey!


I was on the fence about hiring a doula. I decided to start interviewing some to see if anything felt right. I reached out to approximately 10 doulas and interviewed at least 5. Rachel and I hit it off from our very first conversation. While I was interviewing other doulas, all I could think about was Rachel and how I felt like she was our match! Rachel has a very calm demeanor, which is extremely helpful during birth. Her presence brings stillness to the otherwise-sometimes-chaotic delivery room without her even having to speak. She is trained in a variety of coping mechanisms to use during labor and has had personal experience with a hospital birth and home birth. This gives her the ability to provide first hand advice to the mothers she is serving, regardless of the setting. In the weeks leading up to labor, Rachel checked in frequently. The morning I went into labor, I called Rachel at 4am. She met me at the birth center within an hour and a half as I was progressing rapidly. My daughter was born 2 and a half hours labor, completely unmedicated. I don’t think I could’ve done this without Rachel. She kept me, my husband, and my sister calm during a very intense few hours of labor. She held cold rags over my body when I was too hot, changing them frequently. She turned on soft music, brought inspirational quotes to hang around the room, and encouraged me with and without words. I would highly recommend Rachel (and already have!) to anyone. She will do everything she can to make sure you have positive birthing experience.


Rachel has been an absolute godsend for our family. I have 3 kids and when my newborn would not sleep at night we reached out to Rachel so I could get some much needed sleep. I was anxious about handing over my baby at night and being able to sleep but once Rachel showed up I had so much peace that my baby was in the very best care. Our 6 week old is colicky and has acid reflux issues. Rachel has been so patient and loving with her while also being supportive of me and my desire to continue breastfeeding. I am able to be a better mom during the day because of her. I can’t imagine not having her during this newborn season.


I cannot recommend Rachel and North Georgia Family Doulas enough. I decided to hire a doula a little later in pregnancy after I started researching natural birth. I wanted to try for a natural birth in a hospital setting but didn’t think I could do it on my own without help. Rachel supported me every step of the way through a tough pregnancy and was always available to answer questions and encourage me when I started to doubt myself.  
My son was due in late March 2020, and the stress of preparing to deliver a baby during a pandemic was tough, but Rachel was incredibly supportive and helped me deal with the mental challenges I faced under those conditions. We learned a few weeks before I was due to deliver that Rachel wouldn’t be able to attend the birth because of hospital policy surrounding COVID-19. I was sad and frustrated, but Rachel assured my husband and me that we were prepared for the birth and that she would be with me at home and then available via phone or FaceTime throughout the delivery if I needed her. 
For me, the most important benefit of hiring Rachel was that I went into the delivery knowing what to expect and feeling prepared. I woke up at 6:30 a.m. a few days after my due date to some cramps, but it was my husband, not me, who was sure I was in labor. I spoke with Rachel, and she helped me assess my progress. Two hours later, she was preparing to come to my house. I really wanted to delay going to the hospital for as long as possible to avoid interventions that I felt would be pushed on me in the hospital setting. I labored at home with Rachel’s help for several hours. Without Rachel, my husband and I would have left for the hospital much sooner out of fear that we wouldn’t get there in time. Rachel’s training helped us feel confident in executing the plan we’d put in place.
My son was born after about 12 total hours of labor, and I couldn’t have been happier with his birth. Even though Rachel wasn’t there in person, she was there in spirit. My husband and I knew how to handle the physical challenges of childbirth, how to speak with the hospital staff about the things we wanted and didn’t want, and how to stick to our birth plan. My son’s birth was such a happy, stress-free experience, and I attribute that to Rachel. 

To simply put it, Rachel is amazing.

The moment you meet her , you will instantly notice how passionate she is about being a doula and breastfeeding. She is an amazing support and a great listener who will take the time to make it known that you are special. Rachel assisted me for my hospital birth. I don’t think I could have went through my plan of not receiving an epidural if it were not for Rachel’s constant encouragement. She massaged my feet with oils, which was my favorite. She made me feel powerful through those tough contractions and helped me push though it all. Rachel was my rock when it came to breastfeeding. Let’s be honest, those first weeks are tough and I can honestly say if it were not for Rachel, I wouldn’t be happily 9 months breastfeeding today 💖. I am extremely grateful for her.
