I am a wife and mother to the sweetest little boy known as King. I am a GA peach, born and raised. I was raised in the country, down a little dirt road; but I currently reside in the metro-ATL area. Although I miss the country, I appreciate city living as well. I love my family, friends, and church family deeply. I love cooking, eating, writing, crafting, listening to music, hiking Kennesaw Mountain and laughing. I’m an introvert, but I LOVE helping people. It was my own journey of holistic healing (myself) from endometriosis, PCOS, and infertility that led me to my dream “job!” THIS! I’m very passionate about the things I am passionate about– like birth, breastfeeding and holistic healing and living.
I’ve been called to the birth world for as long as I can remember. I remember watching “A Baby Story” over and over instead of cartoons as a kid. It was that passion and my love for helping people that led my on my journey to nursing school. In 2014, I was one of the youngest people to graduate in my nursing class! I initially planned to work L & D and become a Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner, but life had other plans. I took a break from hospital nursing in 2016, and worked in public health. It was there that I learned of the maternal health crisis here in GA for black women, and our low breastfeeding rates. A fire began stirring up in my heart. I knew I had to be apart of a group of people to make a change in these statistics. I just didn’t know where to start. After my own diagnosis of infertility, and healing holistically- I was introduced to the term “doula” by my OBGYN. As I was searching for my own doula, I realized that this is what I had been called to do. I knew that I was supposed to be a doula, and my experience as a mother taught me that. When I was only a few months postpartum, I enrolled in a lactation counselor training program and obtained my Certified Breastfeeding Specialist certificate. I then went on to obtain my certification as a Holistic Birthworker. These two certificates, plus my prior knowledge in aromatherapy, herbs, and natural parenting make me “Raye the Doula, your holistic doula from preconception and beyond!”

Raye The Doula
Raven Thomas helped me in my TTC journey by giving me knowledge on what was actually going on with my body and helping me understand my hormones. She educated me on hormone imbalance and the negative affects that it has on the body. Raven's outstanding wisdom lead to me getting pregnant. She walked me through my pregnancy with healthy ways of eating,books and managing my emotions in a healthy way to promote a wonderful stress free pregnancy. During my Postpartum phase she answered all of my questions for breastfeeding, and how to still rest with multiple kids for recovery, any issue I had she made sure she gave me the emotional support as well as a game plan to overcome my issues I was having. I highly recommend her for all of your Doula needs and brestfeeding services. She has such a heart for women and wellness!!

If you’re wondering whether or not you can receive quality care from a doula even if it’s just virtually the answer is yes. Raven provided vital information on what I could expect, request, decline, and more throughout my pregnancy experience. The actual doula I chose to contract here in New York where I live is everything Raven told me I should have in a doula. When had my virtual consultation with Raven, she was polite, informative, reassuring and even answered my million questions. I think a virtual consultation is key for anyone who is unsure about what doulas do and who they are—and if doulas aren’t readily available in your area having the consultation helps with your search. If you are looking for someone to help you choose the right doula service, and you’re not able to meet in person, I would highly recommend having a consultation with Raven. Simply put, she is amazing. - Mrs. Adara Sherron First time mom to a baby girl.

Raye The Doula
Raye the doula was everything I needed this first time around breastfeeding. I’m a mom of 3, ages 3,2, and now a 9 week old baby boy. I didn’t get the opportunity to have such an empowering, and proactive lactation specialist with my first two. I have inverted nipples but now they both are completely pulled out. The techniques she gave and advice are exactly what I needed. Before, I started using her- in my 1st week postpartum, I got mastitis, I had a fever and more... Raye provided that’s when I was able to get some good advice and support about relieving the clogged milk ducts and gave me help positioning to make breastfeeding easier. Once you get that infection, you feel horrible, but she helped make the experience as comfortable as possible. Don’t miss out of booking her, even if you may not have any problems with breastfeeding like I did. As a postpartum mom, you always need someone in your corner to assist and be there for you. Get a team and on your team have her, Raye the doula. Larisa Cleaves, Mom of 3, Wife, Business Owner

Raven was amazing, she helped me with my cyst and bacteria infection. She knew EXACTLY what I needed to address each issue. She made sure I had everything I needed. Even when I arrived at the store, I called her to make sure I had the correct items... she answered right away and clarified that I had everything. She checked on me every few days to make sure my issues was getting taking care of. I highly recommend a session with Raven for any holistic womb care, health, holistic medicine, etc. thank you Raven so much! Love you
