Trusted birth doula services for Tamarac, Coral Springs, Plantation, Fort Lauderdale, North Miami, Boca Raton, Boynton Beach, Lake Worth and all cities inbetween.

Unequivicable Birth Support

As a South Florida birth doula, I help expectant parents before, during, and immediately following birth by providing:

  • Physical Support
  • Emotional Support
  • Resources & Information
  • Advocacy

Whether you are a first-time parent, or this is your 4th child, the presence of an experienced support person can help maintain a sense of calm and confidence, even in the most intense moments.

Build the best labor support team who will be there to hold you as you sway through each surge, provide counterpressure to each discomfort, remind you how amazing you are doing, guide your partner in being an active support person, and keep you focused on the finish line: holding your baby in your arms.

Client Testimonial

“Serene was the most intuitive in providing all that we needed during birth. From showing up to the hospital right on time (even though I had told her I would call her from the hospital when we felt like we needed her and I basically called her in the parking lot! Its like she knew I would need her sooner rather than later) She immediately got to work in the waiting room applying counter pressure to my back during contractions. Serene came fully prepared with essentials oils, assisted in making the tub to labor in as comfortable as possible. She offered and had me switch labor positions, requested resources from the nurses, and instinctively knew what I needed and made it happen!

Both my husband and I were greatly appreciative of all that she offered and would hire her again!”

Client Testimonial

“I am so glad that I found Serene to be my doula for the birth of my first child (and only one so far). Serene was extremely professional and responsive. Her calm demeanor and wealth of knowledge helped me through the entire labor experience. I was very anxious about the whole process and Serene truly helped my nervousness pre/during/post labor. She was also very helpful to my husband as well which was also a huge plus seeing as we both did not know what to expect. Serene checked on how I was doing after birth and even stopped by which was also a huge plus for a new overwhelmed recovering mama to be. I could not imagine going through the experience without Serene by my side.

Client Testimonial

“Throughout my overnight labor, Serene’s focus on me was unwavering. Her presence in the hospital provided consistency of care, assuring me that everything was progressing well and helping me make important decisions. Her support was so beneficial for my husband, who found reassurance in knowing that my experiences were normal. So that he could just focus on caring for me and getting ready to meet our new baby.

During delivery Serene helped me stay focused on the ultimate goal. The final stretch was challenging but it was the most incredible moment of my life.

Looking back on my labor and delivery journey, I feel so proud of myself and my husband. Serene played a pivotal role in facilitating a positive and empowering experience for us. If and when we decide to expand our family, we will absolutely turn to Serene again. Her support and expertise made all the difference for me and my husband. I wish every family could have the support of a doula like Serene.”

The Process: What To Expect

Initial Interview

The first step is for us to arrange a time for an initial interview. You and your partner must feel comfortable with everyone present at the birth, especially your doula! This conversation allows us to get to know each other and ensure we feel like a great fit. Interviews happen over a video conference and typically last between 30-45 minutes.

Prenatal Meetings

Once we have decided to work with each other, we will plan 2-3 prenatal meetings. These meetings allow us to review in detail what your preferences are, how I can best support you, and what to expect. We can talk through any questions, expectations, and uncertainties you may have.

Regular Check-Ins

Parents are encouraged to reach out at any point with any questions, updates, or comments. Let me know how you are doing! Depending on the parent’s needs, I will check in via phone/text at least every 3-4 weeks until 37 weeks. After 37 weeks, check-ins will be weekly.

The Birth

Let me doula know when you begin to experience possible signs of labor. We will stay in touch with one another and I can ask questions and provide advice over the phone during earlier labor. That being said, I will you join when you feel you need me. For some people, this is earlier in labor and for others it may not be until things are more progressed. Every birth is different but my main goal is that you feel supported every step of the way. I will be present until your baby is born and for at least an hour past the birth, or through the first feeding.

Postpartum Meeting

About 1-2 weeks after the birth, I will check in either in-person or via Zoom for a postpartum meeting. During this time, we will discuss how the first weeks are going, review any questions, and debrief from the birth.

Evidence on Doulas

There have been 26 randomized trials that tested the effects of continuous labor support on more than 15,000 people giving birth. Overall, people who receive continuous support are more likely to have a normal vaginal birth and less likely to have pain medication, negative feelings about childbirth, and Cesareans. In addition, their labors are shorter and their babies are less likely to have complications at birth or be admitted to a NICU. In these studies, the best results occurred when the continuous support was provided by a trained doula—someone who was not a staff member at the hospital and not part of the birthing person’s social network.
