Tampa Bay Doula Services

You're having a baby. We 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! Let's talk about how we can support your growing family.

Buddha Belly Doulas professional services include:

Postpartum & Newborn Care

While words like systems, control, and structure may be appealing to you, babies sometimes need help understanding them. We speak “baby!”

Birth Doula Support

You are in charge of your own destiny, but birth can sometimes throw you off a bit, we’re there to help you get back on track.

Childbirth & Baby Care Classes

You’ve invested in your education before, and it’s always paid off. The pay-off has never mattered as much as it does right now!

How can we support you? Contact us today for the compassionate support you seek.

Imagine feeling fully supported while giving birth and throughout your journey into early parenthood.

Empowered and confident about every decision you make.

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.

The Buddha Belly Doulas Difference:

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

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.
