Birth doesn’t have to be scary. We’ve strayed so far from our ancestral roots that we’ve been programmed to buy into the narrative that pregnancy and birth equate to pain, fear, blood & gore, worry, judgement, un-comfortability, weight gain or unsightly bodily changes that we need to “snap back” from. Birth IS and can be beautiful, ceremonial, transformative, empowering, mindful, spiritual and truly divine. Western medicine and traditional birth work can exist in cohesive partnership and your experience can be your own! Trusting in your body, trusting in your intuition and trusting in your ability to segue into parenthood with the grace and peace that are inherent to who you are is more than possible.

We’ll be here to lift you up as you carve YOUR path forward whether that be a hospital or home birth with a Doctor or Midwife. We’re here for YOU.

Women of Color are 4 times more likely to die in childbirth than their white counterparts. With the support of a doula, women were less likely to have pain-relief medications administered and less likely to have a cesarean birth. Women also reported having a more positive childbirth experience. Other studies have shown that having a doula as a member of the birth team decreases the overall cesarean rate by 50%, the length of labor by 25%, the use of oxytocin by 40%, and requests for an epidural by 60%.

A contribution to Atlas Birth is a contribution toward a safe and equitable community. How you come into this world matters. How you are cared for as you enter into parenthood matters. We invest 100% of proceeds into providing comprehensive Doula services free of charge to women in need and are unable to pay the usual fee for our services. We will also invest these funds into free programs and community workshops as well as trainings to ensure that our staff are always up to date on best practices and are able to provide the best possible care to our clients.
