If you are looking for a Doula in the Atlanta area, here is a snippet of Shaconna’s bio:
I have over 19 years of experience working with girls and women’s transition and reproductive empowerment and life coaching. As a strategic empowerment consultant, preconception and pregnancy coach, prenatal and birth doula (DONA trained) and researcher on the maternal-child health and reproductive life cycle, I provide prenatal education, childbirth support and transition work for women and families for overall wellness. I obtained a B.A. in Psychology, M.A. degree in Counseling Psychology from Ball State University and M.A. in Sociology, specializing in sociology of birth. I combined knowledge of sociological, psychological and development theory with independent study of culture, rites of passage, spiritual healing, empowerment, authoritative voice and life coaching in the conceptualization and creation of Inner Light Holistic Prenatal& Birth Doula Services.
Through InnerLight, I am called to support women and their birth partners with one simple vision: to build a community where women are empowered by the knowledge that their bodies were designed to bring forth life and her birthing decisions are supported by her community. This transformative experience of pregnancy and childbirth is met with my tender, compassionate heart of doula support and a continuity of care from preconception through post-partum. – Shaconna Haley
