Supporting Atlanta Area Families
What Is A Doula?
A doula is an unbiased source of information and physical and emotional support for parents during pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. A doula does not advocate on your behalf but rather empowers you and your partner to ask questions, gather information, and take an active roll in the care of you and your baby. A doula is one of the most supportive members of your village during the childbearing year and beyond.
I am happy to announce that I am now partnering with The Atlanta Doula, Stefanie Kelly, for all labor and birth doula support. You can visit our site to learn more about us, book a free consultation with both of us, and find out why 2 doulas are better than 1!

Who Is Melissa Colatosti?
When I am not supporting parents during pregnancy, birth, and beyond I am often spending time with my own family. My husband and I were married in the fall of 2006 and are the proud parents of 5 aged 17, 14, 11, 7, and 5 who, along with our 2 cats, 2 dogs, and aquatic turtle, keep us on our toes. Our family is involved in our local church and scouting and we often spend time camping, hiking, and canoeing. I love to go for walks and swim laps and occasionally go for runs as well. I am a lover of holiday and seasonal décor, binge watching television dramas, and caffeine.
