Midwife Lori Powers

Patient Reviews

 

As an Atlanta native and long time Decatur, GA resident, Lori attended Emory University School of Nursing earning her Bachelor of Science in Nursing. She worked as a RN in both the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and in Labor and Delivery. After several years of bedside nursing, she realized that she could make a more profound difference in women's lives by partnering with them as their provider. Her desire to work with and support birthing women and their babies led her to Georgetown University where she received her Master of Science degree in Midwifery and Women's Health in 2016. She loves empowering women to make well informed medical decisions, teaching women about their bodies, hearing each woman's story, and honoring her decisions on her healthcare experiences.

Outside of the office, Lori is married with a 10 year old son who is the center of the universe. As a family they enjoy martial arts, reading books to each other and spending time in their neighborhood with their friends. They spend time working with the local refugee community and volunteering at school functions. Their family motto is "What you do matters".

Dinah Augustin, CNM

Midwife Dinah Augustin

Patient Reviews

 

Dinah Augustin is a Haitian- American who is originally from Massachusetts. She obtained her Bachelor of Science in Nursing and minored in Biology at Salem State University. During her service as a nurse she was captured by the insufficient knowledge women possessed regarding their body. It behooved her to search for an alternative way that she can assist. Dinah later attended New York University to pursue her passion and become a Certified Nurse- Midwife. She is hoping that she can inspire women to view their body as sacred and care for it by making informed decisions.

Dinah Augustin is married and loves to spend time with her family, travel, and go to church. She is also fluent in Haitian- Creole.
