My role as a doula started long before I became certified. I have supported friends and family through pregnancies and births for as long as I can remember. It's a calling that I'm glad I stopped running from. As a medical student, I saw so many mothers who had no support and it was a no brainer; I want to be able to support those who have none and so the journey began. I became a doula in the midst of completing medical school. I wouldn't trade birth work for anything!

Care philosophy

Through Thick & Thin (T3 for short) was named such because my goal is to support birthing persons through everything that pregnancy and postpartum will throw at you. I support you through the happy, sad and overwhelming times that you might experience. My mission is to provide family focused, culturally competent care to all I encounter. Visit my website:!

    I’ve worked with Claudia specifically related to pre-natal and hormonal support. I suffer from PCOS, so I reached out to Claudia to learn how I can start to get my hormones to the right levels in order for me to not experience the symptoms that come with PCOS (facial hair growth, weight gain, depression, etc.). With her support and knowledge, I learned more about the condition; she also prepared a tea blend to help me regulate my hormones and prepare for pregnancy. Claudia’s professionalism and dedication is unmatched. She listened to my concerns, provided me with names of reading material and made sure to let me know that if she didn’t have the answer for something, she’ll look for it. Overall, I would recommend Claudia to anyone looking for prenatal, pregnancy and postnatal support.

I am a wife and mother to four beautiful children. For years, birth has been my passion. When I finally attended my first birth as a doula, it was solidified that this is my calling. I saw how important it was for someone, trained in birth, to never leave the birthing person's side. Since attending that birth, I have devoted my career to helping people during this milestone. I focus my attention on educating my clients of their options,how to advocate for themselves, how to ask the correct questions, and how to trust their body during this transformative time. I offer various packages to meet you where you are, so every person can have doula support.

Care philosophy

I believe that education is the key to having a powerful and positive birth experience. No matter what might happen during your pregnancy, labor, and beyond, if you are well educated and supported, then you will feel empowered and in control. Women/ birthing people are so strong and capable, and need to be supported, so they can gracefully embrace their birth no matter what that looks like.

    “During my pregnancy, Hannah displayed a high sense of professionalism. She was incredibly educated and was able to help me find information to make informed decisions about my care. Hannah also was able to encourage my husband during my pregnancy and ultimately provided support for him during labor and delivery so he could be solely focused on me.
    Hannah is very knowledgeable and friendly. I would recommend her services to anyone.”

My name is Jamaya and I am the founder of AHANA.

I strive to change this narrative birth by birth. All families deserve equal care and education. It is important to me that families get the birth that they want.

Care philosophy

Ahana Birth Services specializes in care for families of African, Hispanic, Asian and Native American decent. Nonetheless, families of all colors and statures depend on our foundation.

    Jamaya was my Birth Doula for my latest child. The prenatal appointments were informative and the birth plan helped my provider, grandmother and boyfriend with knowing exactly how I wanted my birth. Her professionalism and skill reassured me that I could trust the environment that I brought my baby into.

As a certified Doula, I feel honored to be able to share my expertise with women and families. I approach birth holistically and I believe that birthing is a natural process, and that women are strong and capable of having a natural birth or any birth preference that they decide to choose. By supporting mom throughout her pregnancy, and making sure that her, and her partner have all of their options, it will help the big day goes as smooth as possible. They will have a chance to have the birth story of their dreams and be prepared just incase an emergency should arise! As unfortunately these things sometimes do. I also support mom emotionally and physically during labor, making sure that she is as comfortable and calm as possible. I’m here to support partners too! I will always have the best interest of my clients at heart and advocate for the birthing woman and her family!

Care philosophy

“At The Joosy doula I provide dependable, caring, and customizable support for families before, during, and after birth. I promise to respect, listen, love, embrace, and be your advocate. I will support you no matter what kind of birth you choose! You will come in as client, but leave as a family.” -Sherease, The Joosy Doula

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.

A postpartum doula in Dunwoody, GA can have a lasting positive impact on a family and help them feel more confident about their parenting role and the way that they feed and nurture their baby. They might offer advice regarding feeding, bathing, and parent-baby bonding.

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 Dunwoody, GA. 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 Dunwoody, GA, as well. These doulas were certified by the Childbirth and Postpartum Professional Association, an international organization that certifies doulas and other childbirth educators/professionals.

As a reminder, because postpartum doulas are not trained to be a medical professional and diagnose and treat medical conditions, a certification is not required for them to practice.

As their names suggest, a birth doula’s main priority is to provide support services before, during and in the moments immediately after childbirth. A postpartum doula’s obligations usually begin after the birth, for several weeks or months. In many cases, your birth doula will also be a trained and certified postpartum doula, which can provide a continuity of care that many parents find extremely valuable.

Many parents want to know whether a postpartum doula or a baby nurse would meet their needs and expectations. A baby nurse might be focused on making sure that a baby sleeps or feeds properly, but that might be the extent of their role. A postpartum doula generally offers more holistic services for their clients.

A postpartum doula in Dunwoody, GA is expected to be more involved with the family as a whole. They might remain involved in sibling care or also provide emotional support to the partner as both parents adjust to becoming new parents. This may even include support for older siblings, light housework, and even meal prep. A postpartum doula provides more physical, emotional, and informational support than a baby nurse.

You can hire two types of doulas in Dunwoody, GA: a birth doula and a postpartum doula. The birth doula is during your pregnancy and through the birth of your child. They provide you with emotional, physical and educational support during your pregnancy, your labor and delivery and for the first few hours after your child is born.
