12 active perinatal doulas, childbirth educators, and lactation counselors make up our agency allowing us to provide holistic support and educational opportunities to Atlanta families. When a client chooses a Birth Support package, they agree to work with their choice of a primary doula and a secondary/back-up doula, ensuring a knowledgable and experienced team is available to guide them through pregnancy and their postpartum time.
When working with The Happiest Doulas, you have a 99% chance that your selected birth doula will be available when you request her presence during labor and she will stay by your side for an hour or two after you've met your baby. If the rare occasion arises for a back-up doula to fill in for your primary doula, she will likely be the person you've selected as your secondary choice. Typically, back-up support is provided by your childbirth instructor - someone you have become very familiar with prior to the birthday party.
Doula collectives (aka collaboratives) are a group of doulas who receive sales leads and independently work with each client, with several members belonging to multiple groups too. In a collective, you may encounter many different service fees, contracts, back-up arrangements, and even be subjected to a rotating on-call schedule.
Our doula agency is focused on giving the premium support clients expect when reserving labor and birth services. To ensure our clients receive priority care, our doulas do not work for any outside collective, group, collaborative, etc. or contract independently, meaning that The Happiest Doulas are able to provide you with the full attention you deserve and expect.
