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!"
