I was born in Manhattan, New York in 1985. At the age of two I was taken to Puerto Rico where I resided for my first thirteen years. During that time, I always saw my mother on her white coat going to the Hospital, and it was then I knew that I wanted to be like my mother. As I got older, I told my mother that I love babies and pregnant ladies, she said you can become a nurse to work in the labor and delivery area. It was then where my biggest dream began, of becoming that nurse my mother talked to me about. I did very well in elementary, middle school and it followed through High School and College. I have been on the honor roll in my High School years and in college. I was awarded for being on the Dean’s List all throughout my college years. The Deans of Administration decided to grant me graduation a semester early, because of my outstanding Grade point average. My career path changed a little and became a Healthcare worker as a Registered Medical Assistant whom I got certified through American Medical Technologist (AMT) for fourteen years. My major concentration was OB-GYN and Ultrasound. I went above and beyond for my patients to where patient trust was built. They always requested me to assist them during their OB visits. I am a trained Phlebotomist, and my patients always requested me to draw their blood for testing. I still felt like I wanted to be closer to my patients and not in a clinic setting, I felt like I can do more and began researching my options. One day in bible study I was introduced to a lady that called herself a doula. I wondered and asked what a doula is. She then replied, I assist pregnant women physically, emotionally, all throughout their pregnancy and physically attend during labor and delivery phases. At that precise moment I began searching on how to become a doula. It felt like the right thing to do; in addition to what I already did for my patients. I began to look and came across Expert rating, a well-known global certification, where I received my first Doula certificate. I then, continued my search into doing more. I strongly believe into providing multiple services to become a resource to my clients. I was eager to provide all services that correlated with being a doula to fulfill all the care that my clients need. I came across IAP College where I graduated as a Doula Business Owner. Not only, did I learned all the aspects of being a doula once again, but also the administrative side to be able to successfully operate a doula business. I became certified in Lactation Counseling and Educator through the . breastfeeding Center of Ann Arbor. I also became certified as a Placenta Encapsulation Specialist through Brilliant Birth Academy. Then, with the city of Milwaukee Health Department whom I worked for as a community-based doula helped me get certified as a Holistic Nutritionist. At the University of Wisconsin, I completed a massage therapist certification program to help my expectant mothers’ release stress to prevent preterm labor due to stress and reduce high blood pressure during pregnancy that can potentially lead to a health condition called (preeclampsia). I decided to implement meditation, aromatherapy, relaxation, and massage as a form to release stress. Lastly, I am a recent graduate from an undergrad program at Bryant & Stratton College Wauwatosa campus in Wisconsin, where I did my Associate of Applied Science with the major concentration in Health Service Administration. I intend to use this degree for myself in my Doula Business Administration. My mission and vision are to one day be able to become accessible by accepting health insurance. Serve clients in the Memphis, TN, and surrounding areas without having to pay out of pocket costs. Make a contract with the City of Memphis Health Department to help offer FREE services to help the underserved and help reduce fetal and infant mortality rates. To continue providing exceptional and genuine care to all my expectant families.

I provide reassurance and perspective to you and your partner, make suggestions as you move through labor, and I can help with relaxation, positioning, massage and other techniques for your comfort.

Care philosophy

As a birth doula, I provide emotional and physical support to a pregnant person during their labor and delivery. During the prenatal period, I provide information and education to help inform you of your options. In labor, I can also facilitate communication with staff to ensure that you have the information that you need to make informed choices.

    I have known Atlanta for over 10 years. She has always been a compassionate, kind and hard-working person. Throughout her time as a doula she has helped to create a well rounded and personal experience for her clients. Professionally, I have worked with her ensuring that she has diverse communication styles/techniques as well as evidence based coping skills. She is the utmost professional, and an amazing person to have on your team. I have personally recommended her to my sister for her pregnancy. As an older sister and new aunt I felt confident that my niece and sister were in highly capable hands. Atlanta was with her throughout the entire process. She provided excellent recommendations, was always available to answer questions and was an overall calming presence to have around. I would highly recommend her!

A doula provides physical and emotional support to parents and siblings, but they also offer information and advice regarding how to feed, bathe, swaddle, and soothe the baby.

It is important to note that a postpartum doula might offer advice but is not expected to provide medical care of any kind or serve as a replacement to an accredited physician. Postpartum doulas are also not qualified to prescribe medication.

Many new parents want to know about certified postpartum doulas and how exactly they are certified. Since the demand for postpartum doulas has greatly expanded in the last several years, the number of reputable postpartum doula training and certification programs has grown in Bartlett, TN. Training criteria can differ from program to program, but most follow a similar curriculum which includes core academic curriculum and practical hours and real-life care experience.

One of the most common national postpartum doula training certifications comes from DONA International. A postpartum doula usually receives about 27 hours of practical training before they are a certified postpartum doula.

There are also CAPPA-certified postpartum doulas in Bartlett, TN, as well. These doulas were certified by the Childbirth and Postpartum Professional Association, an international organization that certifies doulas and other childbirth educators/professionals.
