Made me feel heard and loved – Sara, Tampa

Sara Blue Star Client Review

I had a great experience with Buddha Belly! I had an extremely difficult twin pregnancy and anytime it was getting too hard, or overwhelming I would reach out to them through text messaging. They always had kind and well-educated responses to my questions and made me feel heard and loved for months before my delivery.

I unexpectedly delivered 32 week preemies and over the course of a week in the hospital my entire birth plan fell apart due to health risks related to the babies. I had unwavering support through phone calls and text messages during this whole time. When I got woken up at 2am by a room full of people saying it was time for a cesarean and the first words out of my mouth were “call the doula!” My only regret is not calling them sooner so we could have had her calming presence during my failed induction and epidural which were pretty upsetting for me.

I will always admire these women for taking such good care of me for the months during my pregnancy.
