About Atlanta Birth and Baby
Lisa Griffin: HypnoBirthing® Certified Educator, Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist, Licensed Massage Therapist, Certified Prenatal Massage Therapist, Occupational Therapy Assistant. Mother of 3 and a Grandmother of 6. She has been married for 33 years.
Lisa has an innate passion for women’s health, wellness and babies. She grew up in Pittsburgh PA and as long as she can remember has cared for and loved babies, She dreamed of being an OB nurse when she was a child. When her own daughter was born with a congenital heart defect she became inspired to be a therapist.
After years of practice she was inspired to become a Licensed Massage Therapist then went on to get a specialized certification in Prenatal Massage. Eleven years ago she began being blessed with Grandchildren. She was lucky enough to be invited to attend their births. When she saw how beautiful childbirth can be she knew she wanted this for all women. Lisa did not have the blissful birth that she wishes for her clients. She did not have an advocate and she ended up having 3 c-sections. It was through this experience that she wanted to serve other women during this most sacred time in their lives as a birth Doula. She believes all women deserves to have a calm, informed, safe, beautiful birth. This was the beginning of her life changing journey. As she was studying to be a clinical hypnotherapist she was introduced to HypnoBirthing, the Mongan method then became a certified birth Doula.
