"Having the postpartum services of Buddha Belly after my twins were born was a life-saver! They made my first 4 weeks home a breeze. Every doula I met was trustworthy and beyond accommodating. I can't recommend their services enough!"

"Absolutely amazing!!! If I could give them more stars, I would! The staff is incredibly helpful and super knowledgeable. I used them for placenta encapsulation as well as lactation consultant. Everyone was genuinely kind and checked in with my family daily. We love Buddah Belly! If I would have known about them during my pregnancy, I would have gone to them from day 1! Highly recommend for anyone, especially first time mommies and daddies."

"Bailey was a very calm presence during my labor and delivery. I felt more at ease knowing I had an advocate in the room whom was aware of my preferences and the emotions surrounding the birth of our daughter due to us having had our last baby pass away. So glad my husband and I agreed we needed the extra support. It helped us both focus our energy on bringing this baby safely into the world."

"To say that I was overwhelmed with trying to breastfeed would be an understatement. Thankfully we found Buddha Belly Birth Services, and was put in touch with Amy. Amy is an angel, a very patient, helpful angel. She helped us understand the dynamics of, and ways to make BF easier. If you need help with any of their offered services don't hesitate to reach out and get the help you need."

"Buddha Belly Doulas are AMAZING ♥️ We were blessed with several wonderful postpartum doulas that went above and beyond to make not only our son so very happy but also to make our lives just a little easier!! For the majority of time, we had Korene who did EVERYTHING (this is not an exaggeration). Every day she arrived she would have the most positive attitude and was ready to help with any household chores that were on my never ending to do list!! I swear she is the baby whisperer! We will never forget the light she was in our life."

"We had the pleasure of working with Buddha Belly for the delivery of our twin boys and it was a wonderful experience. Starting with our first interaction with the owners, Amy & Christie, through the delivery and after with our Doulas. They were a great resource of information in helping to prepare for the labor and throughout the delivery process. We would highly recommend this team to anyone considering a doula!"

"Wonderful experience with Buddha Belly - we used Amy and Bailey as our doulas for the birth of our son. They were very professional and truly made such a difference in the experience we had at the hospital. I wanted to deliver him naturally and I believe that without them by my side that would not have been possible. They were a calming force and a great sounding board. I highly recommend them for anyone considering using a doula!"

"I cannot tell you how grateful I am for Rebecca. I was having a ton of anxiety and was worried that I didn't have enough milk for the baby. She helped me with a new latch, gave me a bunch of tips and now I feel really good about breast-feeding. She is wonderful! Thank you so much for providing this service!”

"I did a belly cast with Korene and am thrilled with how it turned out! It's a keepsake I'll cherish from what will be my last pregnancy. Korene did such exquisite work, with great attention to detail, and exactly what I wanted. You can tell she loves what she does! I will recommend this to all my beautiful, pregnant-bellied friends."

I contacted Buddha Belly about a month before I gave birth. I planned on doing the placenta encapsulation and Tincture. They sent me my kit immediately.
