*** COVID19 Update ***
As of May 2020, doulas are considered to be an essential part of the birth team at both Athens hospitals. This means a doula does not count toward the visitor policy and that birthing people will not have to choose between their partner/loved one and their doula.

Apprentice Labor Doula Services

AthensBorn is proud to work with doulas-in-training! Our rate for Apprentice Labor Doula Services is $400. This rate includes all the same services offered by our experienced doulas, as well as the same access to additional AthensBorn services (breastfeeding support, placenta encapsulation, postpartum care, etc). An Apprentice Doula is a great option for families who want compassionate support and are comfortable working with a doula who is still in the process of acquiring their certification and gaining experience in the field.
All AthensBorn Apprentices are backed up by Becca and Kate, in the event that the Apprentice is unable to attend the birth (due to illness or emergency). They are also supported with resources, experience, and informational support throughout a client’s pregnancy, birth, and postpartum care.
AthensBorn currently has an apprentice team taking clients through August 2021. Welcome, Christine and Emily! They practice a partnership model of doula care and are excited to start working with Athens-area families. If you would like to learn more about our current apprentices, please click here.

We have the best job ever...
