At itsaBelly, each core doula member is recognized for their unique strengths, so we can provide the most personalized care to our clients who are expecting or already have a little one in their arms. We take pride in being part of the team, whether you're working with an OB, homebirth midwife, pediatrician, or lactation consultant.

Our doula service transcends the ordinary – we are a team that nurtures growth, celebrates individuality, and provides unwavering support throughout your journey to parenthood. 

We're not another agency; we're a core group of dedicated doulas who believe in the power of collaboration and genuine care.

At the core of our approach is the belief that personal histories matter. We honor your unique journey, understanding that each path to parenthood is marked by its own story. Our team members are not only skilled professionals but empathetic listeners who ensure your experience is both empowering and personalized.

When it comes to birthing experiences, we offer comprehensive support that encompasses both medical expertise and non-medicated birth assistance. Our doulas are well-versed in both worlds, ensuring you have the information and guidance you need to make informed choices that resonate with your preferences.

Inclusivity is a cornerstone of our practice. We take immense pride in having LGBTQIA+ identified team members who bring a wealth of understanding and sensitivity to the table. We are committed to creating a safe and welcoming space for all individuals and families.

What truly sets our doula team apart is the fact that over half of our doulas are families of multiples themselves. We understand the joys and challenges that come with multiple births, and this first-hand experience equips us to provide unparalleled support to expectant parents of twins, triplets, or more.

When you choose us, you're not just choosing a doula service – you're choosing a core team that genuinely cares, values diversity, and stands by you every step of the way. Your journey is unique, and we're here to ensure it's nothing short of extraordinary. We look forward to connecting with you!
