Traditional Homebirth Midwifery Service
Birthing Way Midwifery
Rachel Hart, CPM
Rachel is a traditional midwife and CPM who recently relocated to Atlanta from Las Vegas with her husband and four children. She is a graduate of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas with a Bachelor’s degree in English. She began her midwifery journey through an apprenticeship training program in 2005 and began my own practice in 2007. All four of her children were born at home, the last birth unassisted.
Rachel Says,” Helping women realize their true power and potential as a woman and mother through the birthing process has been a privilege. I look forward to continuing my work as an active member of the birthing community here in Atlanta.”

Hypnobabies is a method of preparing for childbirth in a way that uses hypnotic techniques, guided imagery and visualization to train the inner mind to accept all of the positive and none of the negative. We teach you how to eliminate the fear-tension-pain cycle from the birthing experience as well as MANY other wonderful techniques. This is totally different from any other childbirth education class that is available today!

Providing personalized, nurturing support for breastfeeding families at all stages.
Village Lactation Services
Meghan Garcia-Salas, IBCLC, RLC
My mission is to provide you the knowledge and skills you need to have a successful breastfeeding relationship with your baby. Prenatal contact can facilitate a smooth post partum transition and will help you to avoid common problems that can occur in the early weeks. However, if breastfeeding problems have already occurred, I provide compassionate breastfeeding help that will not only provide you with clinical assistance, but give you the emotional support you need as well. I provide care for all families regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, or living arrangements.
