If you or your partner is pregnant, live in Metro Atlanta and thinking about what’s going to happen postpartum; or if you’ve recently brought home your new baby and you’re feeling like you need extra help and support, you’ve come to the right place! I know that becoming a parent is a huge transition, and this transition can often feel overwhelming. If you don’t have friends or family nearby or even if you have the perfect helper, you may need an extra pair of hands and a good listener during this exciting and challenging time.
I’m Lynn Shapiro, a certified postpartum doula living in Smyrna, Georgia. If you’ve never heard of a postpartum doula, you’re not alone! Briefly – I am a non-medical professional who is an integral part of your postpartum team. Studies have shown that having support during the first weeks after childbirth improves outcomes for the birthing person, partner and the family; lowers the incidence of postpartum depression; and boosts breastfeeding success.
Your needs may change day to day or hour to hour. I’m flexible and tailor my services to your needs. My goal is to support you through the first weeks of parenthood in a way that allows you space to figure out your personal parenting philosophy.
Please visit my Services page to learn more information about the services I offer.
Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.ELIZABETH STONE
