The Motherhood Healing Collective

DONA & BADT Trained Birth Doulas

In the heart of the South, Earthside with Evonna Birth Services was founded by doula Evonna Christmon Marshall, creating a haven of holistic healing and support for pregnant, birthing, and postpartum individuals. It aims to revolutionize maternal care, nurturing families into parenthood with empowerment and a deep connection to their roots.

Recognizing the significance of black doula work in Georgia, The Motherhood Healing Collective emerged. Part of the Earthside with Evonna family, it stands as a symbol of transformative black doula agencies. Rooted in ancestral wisdom, cultural bonds, and holistic care, the collective addresses maternal healthcare disparities, offering services that extend beyond the conventional, embracing cultural sensitivity and community strength. Together, these entities rekindle connections to heritage, promote holistic well-being, and create a legacy of support for future generations in Georgia and beyond.

Culturally speaking, Black women have always had companions with no medical training, like mothers and aunts, providing emotional support and comfort during pregnancy. Doulas are similar to these companions. Having the support of a Doula can prepare a family for some of the challenges they may experience as people of color.

"My experience with Evonna was more than I expected. She helped me prepare for the delivery I desired with prenatal yoga, Mama Talks with other moms, and childbirth education classes to keep me informed. All of those things allow me to say I had my baby in CONFIDENCE and the way I wanted.


I also purchased the Help A Sista Out postpartum kit that included my placenta encapsulation capsules, tincture, umbilical cord keepsake, postpartum herbal soak, and homemade nipple balm. You can't get any better than that!"

"The decision to have a doula & homebirth with my third child came with ease. It was even easier to do it with the assistance of my friend and sister, EvonnaFrom the moment we hired her she was on her job! She called me often and checked on me and was always a phone call away when I was having hormonal changes offering meaningful care and very good information. If I were to do it again, Evonna would be the only doula I call! I highly recommend Evonna, she's the best!"

I got pregnant in 2015 and as a single mom, support was very important to me. Evonna was early in her doula career but she was more than willing to give me the help and guidance I needed. Evonna created fun prenatal visits like yoga in the park and came over to teach me and my mom laboring positions we could do at home before we went to the hospital. I felt like I had a real genuine friend and she even came to the hospital to help ease the pain with different movements and breathing techniques. Evonna is a true gem. We still keep in contact to this day. I recommend her to all of my pregnant friends!"
