One of the best decisions I made during my pregnancy – Elise, Tampa


Hiring Buddha Belly was one of the best decisions I made during my pregnancy and I would absolutely recommend them!

Being my first pregnancy I had no idea what to expect from labor but I felt more at ease already just from meeting with Amy and Christie. They were so sweet and supportive and offered great knowledge and experience. Christie was my doula for labor and she was so incredibly helpful! I wanted my birth to be as natural as possible so when I had to be induced I was so worried I’d have to get an epidural. Because of Christie’s support throughout labor I was able to do it without one! She helped my husband help me and we are so thankful for that. And she was a great support system for us when one of my doctors was less than supportive of my decision for no drugs. She even managed to capture some amazing pictures for us that we will treasure forever! Thank you!
