Bringing a baby into the world is an experience like no other. You may be feeling a mixture of joyful excitement, anticipation and worry. Becoming a parent can be miraculous and challenging all at the same time.

Our expert doulas are committed to helping you feel confident and nurtured so you can enjoy your new baby. In these times with COVID 19, families still need support and we are here for you. Our team is following the CDC guidelines for reducing transmission. Nearly all hospitals within our service area in Tampa Bay are now allowing doulas to be with their clients in person again. We have both in person and virtual childbirth and newborn care classes available, as well as in person or virtual lactation counseling. Yes, our postpartum doulas are also available to support you in your home.

Our goal is to help you navigate these uncertain times to have the best possible birth and postpartum experience you can have. In our more than ten years of experience, we’ve helped hundreds of Tampa Bay families just like yours.

The entire Buddha Belly team is amazing...

Our experience with Buddha Belly could not have been more positive. From the intake process to the postpartum doula services, my partner and I were in terrific hands. The support we received during labor and birth was absolutely essential to keeping our experience positive. The owners of Buddha Belly, Amy and Christie, imparted the exact kind of support and wisdom our family needed as first time parents.

We will 100% work with Buddha Belly for our next baby.

The doulas of Buddha Belly help families feel more confident...

We love working with a supportive doula but not all doulas are the same. The doulas of Buddha Belly are not only skilled in techniques to support women during labor but do so in a way that is supportive of the relationship between the woman, her family and her midwife or doctor. They can help families feel less scared by sharing their knowledge, preparing families for birth and advocating prenatally and during labor. The USF Midwives are thrilled to have Buddha Belly Birth Services as such a great partner in supporting normal childbirth in Tampa Bay.
