Births with Serenity Website Cover

Hello there!

Welcome to my site, Births with Serenity or as you may know me, Doula Serenity (@doula.serenity)!
 
I am Serenity! I am a certified doula and lactation counselor with a huge passion for serving and educating women on their options throughout pregnancy, labor, and the postpartum period! I am married to my high school sweetheart, Zach and we have two daughters- Eleanor (2yr) and Adeline (>1yr)! I tend to lean more on the crunchy side of things as far as cloth diapering, natural remedies, etc., but I have a hard time turning down some Chick-fil-A! 

I became a doula in 2017 after finding out that supporting women through labor in a non-medical way was a real job. I have had the honor of serving and attending many births since becoming certified and my passion dives deeper with each birth. However, my own birth experience with my daughter Eleanor took me to a whole new level of passion. I was planning a home birth with her and after my waters were ruptured for 24 hours, I had to transfer to the hospital which ended in a whole lot of birth trauma (you can read about it her birth story here.) With lots of processing birth trauma and fears, I had a redeeming and peaceful home birth with my daughter Adeline (you can read about her birth story here.) Long story short, my mission is to help prevent other women from having the same experience that I did. I do this on a small scale in person as a doula, but I wanted to take it to the next level to educate as many women as I can so here I am empowering women across social media and through my courses!

 

If you're a pregnant mama looking for encouragement, resources, and education to help you make the best decisions for your family for pregnancy, birth, postpartum, breastfeeding, and beyond, this is the place for you! Let's connect!

What does a doula do?

As a doula, my services vary depending on what YOU want! My goal is to serve you to the best of my ability and help you accomplish the birth you envision, whether you want to deliver at home, at a hospital, or at a birthing center. I promise unconditional support on however you choose to give birth. I will help teach you ways to ease discomfort during labor, teach you the stages of labor, and help you feel confident in yourself and your ability to give birth! 

For all the partners out there concerned about a doula taking their spot, do not worry! As a doula, I will help guide partners in how to help support the women. Partners and doulas make a great team to provide the women with the best support possible in labor! For example, the partner can be standing and swaying with the woman while the doula can be massaging the woman's back or doing the double hip squeeze! This is just one example out of many ways a doula and partner can make an excellent team.

I serve women in person in the Lake County, FL area for all types of births- home births, birth center, and hospital births. I am fully booked until October 2023 due dates!
