Meet the Doula
Hello! I’m Serene.
A Serene Birth is what I want to help women achieve by offering my services as a certified birth doula and childbirth educator.
I draw on my professional training, knowledge, and experience to provide education, emotional support, physical comfort and, as needed, advocacy, to make sure that you have the information you need to make decisions throughout pregnancy, labor, and birth with confidence and calm.
As a childbirth educator, I can provide the knowledge and tools to empower a better birth. As a birth doula, I can provide reassurance and perspective to you and your partner, make suggestions for labor progression, and help with relaxation, soothing touch, positioning, and other techniques for comfort. As your doula, I am working for you, not your caregiver or hospital.
I currently live in Coral Springs, Florida and I serve all of Broward county, as well as parts of Miami-Dade and Palm Beach Counties.
My Approach & Values
I approach every pregnancy and birth with an open mind and a full heart. I find that every birth teaches me something new.
First and foremost, I work to understand what the birth parent’s goals are and what is most important for me to know about them. I also try to provide resources and information about any decisions the birthing person and their partner may have questions on.
Above all else, I value autonomy, love, and support: a birthing person’s right to their autonomy, always leaving space for love between the birthing person, their birth partner, and their baby, and supporting the birthing person and their team for all-around empowering experiences.
