Our doulas are here to help.

Congratulations on the upcoming addition to your family!!!

Birth and early parenting is an experience like no other and if we’ve learned one thing along the way, it’s that the support you have during this time really makes a difference. It’s actually why Buddha Belly Doulas exists!


According to legend, when one rubs the buddha belly, it brings luck, happiness and prosperity. 

Legend also has it that when you engage the support of Buddha Belly Doulas, you are far more likely to experience birth and early parenting in a positive and more energetic way. That’s what families in the Tampa Bay Area tell us, anyway!

The imagery and likeness of a fat and happy Buddha represents: peace, patience, positivity, strength, and wisdom. These characteristics are the very ones that make parenting, and doulaing for that matter, most effective. 

  • Peace – Freedom from disturbance
  • Patience – The ability to remain calm during difficult times
  • Positivity – The tendency to be optimistic in attitude
  • Strength – The quality or state of being strong
  • Wisdom –  Having knowledge and good judgment

Imagine giving birth and bringing your baby home in an environment that is free of disturbance, while remaining calm and optimistic. Imagine feeling empowered and confident about every decision you make. 

That’s the Buddha Belly Doulas Difference!

Buddha Belly Doulas Office Staff & Owner

You and your family matter to us. We connect with you on a personal level. We listen. We support you and your choices.

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.
