Tampa Doula Services – Testimonials
“A huge thank you to One Love Doula Services. I delivered premature twins and was completely exhausted and overwhelmed with the night time feedings. Yamel and her team helped with the night time shift, so my husband and I could get quality sleep. I would highly recommend One Love Doula to any women pregnant or postpartum.”- Danielle, Tampa.
“Yamel is the BEST!!! We chose to contact One Love Doula Services after seeing them at the Prego Expo 2016. After meeting with Yamel, we knew she was the one for us! I gave birth to my first baby, a baby girl, in November. During my pregnancy and after, Yamel was always there to answer any questions or concerns that I had. When it was time to give birth she was by our side at the birth center and when we were transfered to the hospital. She also encapsulated my placenta. Yamel is amazing at what she does because she loves what she does. She is so knowledgeable, kind, caring, warm, and funny. She was everything I needed at the most important time in my life. I can say that we hired her as our Doula but in the end, she became a great friend.”- Jen C.
Frequently Asked Questions About Doula Care
Can a doula attend Cesarean births?
A doula absolutely can attend a Cesarean birth! Many local hospitals will allow your partner and additional support person into the operating room, in any event your doula will be at your availability from the beginning of the contract and provide much needed support before and after delivery.
Do you accept payment plans for your services?
A deposit is necessary at the beginning of your contract in order to secure availability,and add you to our calendar. We will do our best to work around your budgeting needs prior to the birth of baby.
How much is your fee for a consultation?
Meeting with One Love Doula Services requires no fee, we recommend you interview several doulas prior to making this choice as this will be the person with you during a very intimate time in your life. We offer a complimentary consultation, which typically takes about an hour.
Is a doula the same thing as a midwife?
The word doula is of Greek origin and translates to woman’s servant. A doula provides no medical or nursing care unlike a midwife. She can give her complete attention to the laboring woman. A doula provides emotional, physical and informational individual support.
My partner is afraid that my doula will replace them?
The bond between you and your partner will not be interfered with by your doula. Your doula is available for both you and your partner, we make it a point to ensure your partner always remains involved during the process, we involve them in prenatal and take the time to discuss their role and educate them on how they can better support you during the big day.
What if you are at another birth and my labor begins?
Because we want to ensure that each client receives all the attention they deserve we keep a low clientele list per month, because life happens and issues can always arise, a back up doula is always available and we do our best for you to meet the back up during one of your prenatals.
Why should I hire a doula?
Multiple studies have found that the presence of a trained doula benefits everyone. The studies have shown that doula care and presence is associated with shorter labors, less use of epidurals and other pain medications, lower episiotomy rates, and as much as a 50% reduction in the C-section rate. Research has also shown better clinical outcomes for both the mother and the baby (including better breastfeeding rates, and increased quality in family bonding). A doula also provides care for the mother’s partner and other family members, can assist with busy hospital staff tasks, and greatly increases a mother’s overall satisfaction with her birthing experience.
