"It’s almost impossible to overstate how amazing it was to have Morgan be a part of my labor and delivery. Not only did her physical skills and strength allow her to greatly minimize my labor pains by using counterpressure techniques, she also advocated for me in a gentle and clear way when I was unable to speak due to labor. She is a wealth of knowledge, a true gentle spirit and peaceful presence, and when I was feeling overwhelmed, she knew to pray for my husband and me during delivery. She has so much knowledge about babies as well, and helped me prepare during pregnancy, as well as during recovery! Morgan also was such an important part of coaching my husband to help me through labor and delivery, and we both agreed that the money we spent to have her be part of the process was the best money we have spent in years. I would recommend anybody having a baby hire Morgan, and we definitely will again if we have more biological children! She is a true blessing!" - Kelsey H.
"Morgan was the best decision we could’ve made with the birth of my first son, Samuel. I wanted a water birth but the hospital won’t allow you to use the pool if you test positive for COVID, which I did. Not only was I unable to have a water birth but my water ruptured prematurely so my whole birth plan went out the window! It would’ve been very hard for my husband and I to cope with the situation if Morgan hadn’t been there to help us along. She gave strong support over the phone for every question we had until we finally called her to the hospital. Once she arrived, she brought a calming presence with her. She rubbed my back and feet, had peppermint oil when I was nauseous, and new when to back off when I needed a breather. She was amazing support for my husband when he needed a break or needed back up. She was firm when I needed strength and gentle when I needed comfort. When I decided to have an epidural, she made sure I was 100% confident in it. It ended up being a blessing! She was there through the pushing and stayed after the birth to make sure we were feeling good. I’d recommend her to anyone! Thank you Morgan, Ajay and I love you!!" - Christina S.
"Morgan is incredible! This was our first baby and it was pretty rocky with a gestational diabetes diagnosis and then a low amniotic fluid diagnosis that completely derailed my birth plan of a water birth. But Morgan prayed over me and my baby so many times during the course of my pregnancy, was there for advice and just letting me talk it out, and calmed me through the rough patches. In labor she was a calm guiding force that was absolutely invaluable for myself and my husband. My husband didn’t know how to help, even though he was desperate to. Morgan showed him how to help me through contractions and was there for me every step of the way. In the end, I did a completely natural birth with no pain meds and could not have done it without Morgan. I kept saying I couldn’t do it, she kept telling me that I already was. Highly highly recommend." -Heather U.
“Morgan was fantastic!!! She truly is the perfect doula! Having a home birth, we knew it would help to have Morgan be there to support and help us through our experience. Morgan was extremely helpful before our birth, during, and after! She made her schedule work with mine and was there when I needed her each time. She provided much advice ahead of time on how the day of labor would be and help me set some expectations!! When I went into labor, she came immediately when I called and started diving right in to support, encourage, and help me in every situation I was facing. She was calm the whole time and didn't hesitate to get things I needed when I needed them. I was more than blessed to have her on this journey with me!!! So grateful in so many ways!” -Tamee C.
"I went back-and-forth about hiring a doula. One, because of the expense and two, the necessity. So beginning my search, I wanted to find a great doula, but also curious to understand how/why hiring a doula was necessary. Morgan quickly proved this for me after our first phone call! It’s not every day we give birth, so I was excited to fully prepare and invest in this experience. She was the first out of five interviews, and she was my favorite by far. First off, she sat down and gave me her undivided attention, engaged with me and reciprocated questions. I could tell that she was organized, professional, passionate about her work, and interested in me and my plans. I told her that I wanted to go unmedicated and that I could physically “get through it”, but I didn’t want to just get through it, I wanted a plan, to actually enjoy the process, and remain in control, and I hoped a doula was my ticket to achieving that. I asked her specific questions on what exactly she would be contributing, her techniques, strategies, etc. and she took her time to answer each one. I wanted someone to help guide me with all their advice, expertise, and tools through every stage. Morgan did exactly that and more! It was so nice to have someone to ask questions and chat with through the end of my pregnancy and to know she was on standby anytime I needed her. It gave me so much peace of mind. I would update her with what I was feeling as my due date came and went and she had all the perfect recommendations and things to say to give me the confidence and reassurance I needed. She never made me feel like I was an inconvenience, or that she was too busy. She has a way of making you feel like you’re her only client even though she is juggling several—all with unique needs. She was also including my husband in every text, sending us scripture and saying everything we needed to hear in those tough moments of uncertainty (I had stop and stall labor). It felt like the three of us were a team, and we were crushing it. She has such a calm and confident presence about her and it was exactly what I needed. Hiring Morgan as my doula was the best decision I could’ve made and yes, worth every penny and 100% necessary. We met an amazing woman and friend through this experience and we’re forever grateful. It will forever be one of our favorite memories together bringing our son, Bolden, in to the world." - Hollie T.
"I had Karla on my birth team three years ago with the birth of my first daughter, and she helped me to feel empowered and present when my hoped-for unmedicated birth became a lovely epidural birth due to intense back labor. This past year, I became pregnant with my second daughter and wasn’t going to hire a doula - my first birth was so great that I planned to go with an epidural again, and I didn’t know if we could afford a doula again. Then Covid numbers started rising, hospital policies started tightening and changing, I had a prolapse that was making me question whether I’d even be able to have a vaginal birth, and baby girl kept flipped from breech to vertex to posterior and back again. Finally, my husband decided that we needed a doula, and when I reached out to Karla (whom I knew had recently retired), she recommended Morgan! I am so grateful for Morgan’s calming and prayerful presence in our labor room - she supported us physically, emotionally, and spiritually, helped with positioning during my epidural birth, and responded to the Holy Spirit’s leading throughout our labor and birth. She even prayed over us just moments before our daughter surprised us by birthing herself with zero pushing from me. I cannot say enough about how vital Morgan was to our birth. I highly recommend her and am so excited that she is the new Atlanta Christian Doula!" - Caitlin S.
“My first birth was intense, stressful, and a lot of intervention was involved. My husband and I didn’t know how to advocate for me. My nurse was not nice and made me feel like a burden. With that being said, for my second baby I decided to have a different experience. When I called Morgan and we spoke for the first time, I felt so relieved! She understood my concerns, answered all of my questions and assured me she was their to advocate for me. When our sweet girl decided it was time, she came to my house and helped me labor here for a couple of hours while my contractions got closer and then we headed to the hospital. The entire time she kept me as comfortable as possible and continued to keep me positive when I thought it was getting to hard! You can feel the passion she has for what she does and how much she loves her mommas! I could not have asked for a better doula, my experience this time around was so different she went above and beyond keeping me comfortable and being available anytime I needed her. If you are looking for a reliable, compassionate, and strong doula, she is your girl.” - Mayra S.
"I can’t state enough how integral Morgan was in making my birth a beautiful experience. Not only is she extremely skilled and knowledgeable with the human body and knowing where to apply pressure and how, but she’s also a huge comfort. I leaned on her as much as I did my husband, because she made me feel just that comfortable. Her spiritual, emotional, and physical support are unmatched and I hope Morgan and I can stay friends forever. Can’t recommend her enough!"

"Morgan was such a blessing to my husband and I during my pregnancy and my delivery!
My first labor was very long and resulted in me getting an epidural then an unplanned c-section when I had originally set out to have an unmedicated vaginal delivery. That experience left me desiring so much more. When I got pregnant the second time, I knew I wanted to do things differently, so I reached out to Morgan! Birth is such a sacred, holy experience so it was important to me to have a doula who aligned with my beliefs. She was so encouraging from the beginning when I told her I wanted to try for a VBAC. She prayed for me and cheered me on! When my pregnancy went past my due date, she came to my house and helped me with different exercises that could encourage labor to start. She was always so supportive of what I wanted! When I did go into labor, she met me at the hospital and immediately started working to comfort me and help me with pain relief. She did hip squeezes for THIRTEEN HOURS! Truly. At every contraction. I still can’t get over that! She had several other tricks up her sleeve to bring me relief and even taught my husband how to help too. When I started to push, she was coaching me in how to do it all more effectively which was such a huge help! She also came over the week after I gave birth to check in on me. I am so thankful for Morgan and all the ways she has blessed my family!" - Allie Cate R.
"When I was a couple months pregnant I knew I wanted to have a doula support and care for me during my pregnancy and birth. I googled “Atlanta Christian doulas” and a doula business called Atlanta Christian Doula popped up. I connected with her and felt like she was the one! The fact that she was a chiropractor too really made me excited. Throughout my pregnancy, if I had any questions or concerns Morgan was always there to answer them. Her chiropractic adjustments towards the end of my pregnancy were so beneficial. She also helped me get little one into an optimal position. When I was in labor she was there in so many ways. She applied counter pressure to my lower back, she made sure I was inhaling peppermint for the nausea, she encouraged me when I doubted myself, she was there to give my husband a break, and she held my hand when I pushed to bring my baby girl into the world. She did so much more than I can say here. Everything she did was so loving and I couldn’t of had the amazing experience I had without her. There is a special bond that is formed when two people go through birth together. I will always hold a place in my heart for her and even my midwife and labor nurse. These women were so crucial to me feeling safe and equipped to bring forth life. If I was all alone I would’ve been miserable. Pregnancy, birth and postpartum support are so important. I highly recommend building a team for yourself if you’re in this season. Your experience will be so much better for it. Get Morgan on your team! She is a blessing from God and gifted beyond measure in her area of expertise!" - Erica D.
Morgan was my doula for my first baby born in September 2022. I was hesitant to hire a doula at first, but I’m so glad that we found Morgan and will have her at any other births we have (as long as she’s willing and available). She was supportive from the very beginning, taking time to get to know my husband and I and what we hoped for our birth. She stayed in touch throughout my pregnancy, answering questions and sending me information I needed. She was always a positive influence and I felt very well prepared for the birth of my baby because of her, especially after her visiting with us.
Morgan was extremely supportive when I was pregnant past my due date. She helped explain my options and encouraged me to make decisions based on what I wanted despite many differing opinions coming my way. I had my baby at exactly 42 weeks at home, like we planned. I am thankful that Morgan was there to walk me through those 2 trying weeks, advising me and praying for me and my baby. I went into labor in the afternoon at 41 weeks + 6 days, and Morgan arrived quickly to provide support. I labored all night and finally had my baby the next morning. Morgan stayed with us the entire time. She and my husband switched off doing hip squeezes/counter pressure for at least 10 hours, if not more. She kept our home calm. She made sure each place I labored in was set up to be peaceful. She made sure I ate and drank. She prayed aloud over me and my family. She encouraged me the entire time. “I can’t do it” never even crossed my mind because I felt supported every minute of my baby’s birth. She also held space for my husband to announce our baby’s gender after he was born. After having skin to skin and resting as a new family of 3, Morgan helped tuck us into bed and taught me how to breastfeed. I still say to myself what Morgan told me and have had absolutely no problems nursing my baby since. Morgan worked efficiently alongside my midwife and her assistants and is a huge part of why I am so happy with my birth experience. Morgan has the sweetest soul, is soft spoken but has a strong calming presence, and is a blessing to everyone she cares for. - Sarah T.
