Choosing the right Tampa Doula for you may be overwhelming. I’ve compiled a list of the Top 3 Tampa-based doulas and the services they provide.
A doula is a trained professional who provides continuous physical, emotional, and informational support to their client before, during, and shortly after childbirth to help them achieve the healthiest, most satisfying experience possible (DONA, 2023). Most often, labor doulas are hired to offer support for the birthing person during birth. This could be helping with comfort techniques such as massage and touch to help with breathing techniques.
I highly recommend interviewing a few different doulas to find the right fit for you! The top 3 Tampa Doulas are…
One Love Doula Services is owned by Yamel Belen. She has a team of 6 doulas and they provide services throughout the Tampa Bay Area (Hillsborough, Pasco and Pinellas counties). Their goal is to support your family as you transition into parenthood for the first time, or fourth time! Here are the services they offer:
Buddha Belly Doulas is owned by Christie Collbran. Buddha Belly is a team of doulas offering various education classes, and birth and postpartum doula services throughout the Tampa Bay Area. Their goal is to support you through pregnancy, birth, postpartum, and the first year of your baby’s life.
Alyssa, owner, doula and educator of Breathing Through Life Tampa Bay, is passionate about birthwork. She advocates for her patients birthing rights and pours her all into her clients.
Even with having a partner by your side, I highly recommend having a Tampa doula as part of your birth team! They’ll be with you every step of the way both supporting you and advocating for you.
