BIRTH DOULA I YOGA INSCRUCTOR I HYPNOBIRTHING INSTRUCTOR

As a mama of two, I know first hand the power of birth and the transformative magic that it holds, having been supported by my partner and my doula throughout both. And so, I consider myself fortunate to assist other women during this time in their lives, directing them toward knowledge, reminding them of their body’s innate intelligence, and holding space with them on their journey. I believe that birth is an extraordinary process of becoming that empowers women and families.  

As a doula, I provide emotional and physical support for women throughout the entire pregnancy and delivery process, and work with each family to help them plan and carry out their own unique birth vision, so families have an incredible and awe-inspiring birth experience. How women birth matters, and feeling heard, understood, and supported throughout pregnancy, during labor, and postpartum is essential.  My calm, nurturing, and lighthearted intuitive energy help me attune to each laboring mama I serve. My background in yoga, somatic practices, breath work, and evidence based research all inform my approach to birthing, and my work as a certified doula and HypnoBirthing instructor, allow me to help women have a more peaceful and informed pregnancy and birth.

BIRTH DOULA I STUDENT MIDWIFE | LA LECHE LEAGUE BREASTFEEDING COUNSELOR

As a certified Doula through the Hypnobirthing Institute and Contemporary Doula International it is my goal to provide families with information, education, and the support they need to make their own informed choices about birth and parenting.
I have worked in the birth

community in different facets over the past 20 years. As a new mother after the birth of my first son I felt a calling to support women in childbirth and to

help new mothers to be, to alleviate the fears that surround childbirth. My

first opportunity to do so was by participating in a mentoring program aimed at pregnant teens. It was a remarkable experience to help young mothers become educated and empowered to be the best moms they could be. These experiences led me to supporting women in my direct circle of family and friends as a birth

Doula. As my experience grew so did my enthusiasm for helping women achieve the birth that they saw fit for themselves.
Today I work as a certified Birth Doula for all types of births. I support women in Home Births, Birth Center Births and in Hospital Births. I also work as a trained Breastfeeding Counselor

providing educational and physical support for breastfeeding mothers. I am also an Accredited Leader for La Lech League International where I volunteer my time to help women all over South Florida overcome difficulties in breastfeeding.

BIRTH DOULA

I'm Shayla Labbe. Im a doula because I had a calling to be a part of something bigger than me, something that would put to use some of my natural abilities, but also something life-changing...and what's more life changing than birth? I bring to the table my ability to listen, comfort, and soothe the birthing mother while she navigates her own experience. I went into this profession with the intention of helping mother's with the most important moment in their lives. Now I realize being a doula is even more than that; we educate, we teach mom's to advocate for themselves, and we bring the whole family together in hopes that your birth story unfolds as a positive one. And the hopes that we equiped you (and your partner) with all the tools necessary for your experience. As a birth doula, I am a part of a changing time and shift within the community towards better birthing. And that makes me feel so good about what I do! I look forward to being your doula & guiding you within your own birthing plan.

POSTPARTUM & BIRTH DOULA I LACTATION COUNSELOR

Hello, I’m Jennifer and my experience and love as a birth worker hails from the Country of Australia, a leader in maternal health care. After the awe-inspiring birth of my daughter I became a doula through the Australian Doula College in 2010 and a Calm Birth Practitioner. I’m also a post partum doula- specializing in wound care after circumcision and overnight respite. More recently, I became a Certified Lactation Counselor and on a weekly basis work with families at a tongue tie clinic in Coral Gables; I know the extra breastfeeding support and knowledge in those early days is so helpful.

 I can’t wait to share what strength and meaning the labour experience can provide and continue to provide over a lifetime. I approach my job with a ton of empowerment - and zero judgement. I have experience working with OBs and midwives in various birth settings including water births-which happens to include one of my own.

 Ultimately, helping women and their families connect and embrace their individual experiences before, during and at home- is my aim as a doula and passion.

BIRTH DOULA 

Being a doula is my passion. I do not feel that I work as a Doula for living, I just am a Doula.And that means that any important situation for women is also important for me, since the most relevant part of a doula's work is to support the mother-to-be in all her emotions in a respectful way, without judgments & very closely. It's also my job to help her dissipate her doubts and fears. I dedicate my time to the mother, creating a special connection between the two of us. Finally and naturally, we become confidants, as friends and sisters ... my role is not to judge the mother, just make her feel like a woman, a Goddess, a creator and a wild mammal. My passion lies in educating women about how incredible they are, the amazing things their bodies are capable of, how to trust their intuition and how to exercise their rights.
