Empowered Birth Atlanta

Empowered Birth Atlanta (est. 2013) was founded with the goal of empowering every birthing family to enjoy a safe and uplifting birth experience focused on optimal health, education, informed decision making, and family bonding.

Margaret Byrne, CPM LM CD(DONA) LMT

The first time I was astounded by the power of birth was when I supported my sister during the birth of my niece in 1989. Passionately intrigued, I attended Maternidad La Luz Midwifery School, began attending home births, and then became a Licensed Midwife in 1997.

 

I am a Certified Professional Midwife, Certified Doula, Licensed Massage Therapist (specializing in Arvigo Maya Abdominal Therapy), body-oriented therapist, certified tantra yoga teacher, wife, and mother. As a doula and homebirth midwife, I have attended hundreds of births in homes, hospitals, and birth centers over the last 8 years in Atlanta, GA.

I offer body-centered self-discovery and compassionate relationship support. I enjoy time in the woods, hot springs, yoga, travel, and time with my family. I draw from all of my skills as I help mothers on their own birthing journey. I believe that birth is, by far, the most potent experience in a woman's life and lays the foundation for the health and well-being of her baby.
