The Doulas of Buddha Belly Help Women Feel Less Scared – Jessica Brumley, CNM, USF Health

By Buddha Belly Doulas | June 18, 2017

Evidence has demonstrated that women who have a doula are less likely to use pain medication in labor, less risk of cesarean section and a higher satisfaction with their birth experience. We love working with a supportive doula but not all doulas are the same. The doulas of Buddha Belly Birth Services are not only…


She was absolutely irreplaceable – Brittany, Apollo Beach

By Buddha Belly Doulas | June 16, 2017

My body and mind healed quicker – Lisa, St. Petersburg

By Buddha Belly Doulas | April 2, 2017

My first pregnancy entailed many adventures, but one of the paths led me to Buddha Belly. I utilized Buddha Belly for my placenta encapsulation.

Client Review

Hypnobirthing taught me to relax and believe in the process – Tanya, Tampa

By Buddha Belly Doulas | November 6, 2016

I received superior service from the moment I contacted Buddha Belly.  Christie promptly contacted me and advised me of her services.  I hired Candice for one on one Hypnobirthing classes at my home.

Truly the most talented and loving doula – Lauren, St. Pete

By Buddha Belly Doulas | November 6, 2016

From the second I found out I was pregnant I knew a home birth was exactly what I wanted. There was no way I was going to be in a hospital to give birth, those places freaked me out! As I researched long and hard to find the perfect midwife for my new and growing…


Everyone NEEDS a doula! – Samantha, Palm Harbor

By Buddha Belly Doulas | November 3, 2016
