Certified Birth Doula
Elysia Douglas is a professional, certified birth doula and childbirth educator in the Metro Atlanta area. In her first 3 years as a doula, she has assisted over 50 families as they prepared for and welcomed their little ones into the world. Her journey began with a request to keep a laboring friend company until her partner arrived. As her friend tells of that memorable day, "Every time that I look at my son, I thank God for Elysia. She was perfect and a natural labor coach in the delivery room. She kept me calm and focused." From that day on she knew in her heart that she was destined to have a career working with women as they made their transition to motherhood.
She offers attentive, nurturing, and compassionate support during pregnancy, labor, birth, and beyond. Elysia is passionate about providing an environment where women can feel safe, secure, and free to voice their goals and their fears. By providing an open mind, a listening ear, and the most current research and evidence based information, Elysia helps you create your own, personal birth roadmap and becomes your compass to assist you in successfully reaching your destination. Throughout your journey she is there offering guidance, understanding, reassurance, and hands on support. She is unbiased, unwavering, and fully invested in helping you have your best birth experience.
Originally from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Elysia has lived in the metro Atlanta area for 14 years and considers it home. She is a wife and a mother to four children of her own. When Elysia is not at prenatal visits, facilitating a childbirth education class, or attending a birth, she enjoys sewing, painting, volunteering in children’s ministry at her church, and spending time with her family and friends.
Through Mother~2~Mother Labor Support Services, Elysia has started an initiative called Pamper Me, Baby! to collect disposable diapers to be donated to North Fulton Community Charities. North Fulton Community Charities (NFCC) is a non-profit human service agency dedicated to preventing homelessness of individuals residing north of the Chattahoochee River in Fulton County (Alpharetta, Johns Creek, Milton, Mountain Park and Roswell). NFCC assists families with basic needs such as food, rent and utilities, clothing, and adult education classes during short term emergencies. One in three families is unable to provide its child(ren) with an adequate supply of diapers? There are no government programs that exists to supply citizens with diapers? Food stamps and federal programs do not allow for the purchase of diapers. Most laundromats do not allow people to wash cloth diapers in their machines because of sanitation issues. There is a direct link between infrequent diaper changes and infection, illness, abuse and infanticide? Through this initiative, Elysia hopes to keep NFCC shelves stocked with diapers so no family has to go without and the instances of infection, illness, abuse, and infanticide will be significantly diminished.
