Buddha Belly has it figured out – Shalin


I worked with them for my birth and postpartum care, and Buddha Belly has it figured out. I love the idea of a pair of birth doulas – they made sure to keep in touch, answer every question and provide relevant articles and website links to help me prepare for a birth experience that was the natural, calm pain med free experience I wanted. Although I came across this company during week 27 (late in my book!) they got my back. By week 36- I had met with the team twice and interacted with them several times. We went over my birth plan – and cross checked it with the hospital’s list (a doula is so worth it if you are planning a natural birth at a hospital.)

The day of, Heather showed up maybe 10 mins after I arrived at the hospital. Patient, encouraging and supportive – she lent her brains to me to answer all the hospital staff questions, as I focused on giving birth to my babylove. Thank goodness for her 🙂 she spent hours during that time, and was a great help to my husband and I. I am sure Jillian would’ve done the same – this team is incredibly trustworthy, endearing and knowledgeable. Their communication is on point!

When I got home – I got some post care help. Although I didn’t end up needing much night care – Marisa was great. If I ever need night time help- I wouldn’t hesitate to call her. I ended up wanting Day time help – Amy, Rebecca and Chrissy were very supportive. Most of my days were with Amy – who happens to be the owner of the company.

Amy takes initiative and gets your back at a time when you’re sleep deprived, and trying to figure the new mom thing out. She helps pull it back together – allowing you to get your bearings straight, some decent naps, and lots of assistance with meal prep/baby’s laundry etc. also to be noted, this team didn’t drop the ball with communication at all. One less thing to think about.

Thank goodness for this company! Would not hesitate to recommend!
