The Sun State Doulas’ Difference

Sun State Doulas pride themselves on providing exceptional service, with the most reliable birth professionals, to the families in the Central Florida area. We have worked relentlessly to set ourselves apart in the Tampa and Orlando areas. We endeavor to provide the most knowledgeable, certified, and experienced birth professionals who deliver unbiased, non-judgmental support. We strive to be the difference you feel through every interaction and each encounter.

Our training is second to none

At Sun State Doulas, each of our doulas is trained and certified, or working towards certification, with ProDoula. By having each of our doulas trained through the same organization, we are able to guarantee consistency of care for the families we serve. ProDoula provides an international support network for its doulas where they can turn for support, insight, and advice. In addition, ProDoula allows their doulas to retake their training at any time, at no additional cost. This allows them the opportunity to gain new insight and knowledge with each training. We are incredibly proud to be associated with such an outstanding organization.

Continuing Education

Whether through independent study shared within our group, trainings within the agency, or informational sessions given by other professionals, our birth professionals strive to increase their knowledge in a variety of ways so they can provide the clients we serve with the most up-to-date information available.

Team Model

At our agency, our doulas follow a team model when serving our clients. When you hire a doula with Sun State Doulas, you actually receive a doula-duo. The team assigned to you will attend your complimentary consultation, two prenatals, and postpartum visit together. They share an on-call schedule for your birth. This ensures they are able to attend to their own families while still being available for yours. In addition, this allows us a built-in backup system that ensures no one is attending your birth whom you haven’t already met and are comfortable with. By having a team, you are able to have two doulas who are familiar with your birth plan, preferences, and more importantly…you.

24/7 Availability

At Sun State Doulas, we go on-call from the moment you sign a contract with us. We know that babies don’t come on a timetable so why would we limit your guaranteed coverage to 36 or 37 weeks? We don’t. Whether pre-, full-, or post-term, we’ll be there to offer your baby a warm welcome to the world.

Full-Service Options

Our goal, at Sun State Doulas, is to be a one-stop location for all your pregnancy, birth, and postpartum needs and desires. We have worked hard to do just that. From photography and childbirth education, to doulas and placenta encapsulation, to massage therapy and parent support groups – we’ve got you covered!

Custom Support

Our birth professionals are trained to relate to you uniquely. To customize their support to your individual personality and your needs. To respond in ways that resonate with you as a person. We do this to ensure you feel completely supported – body, mind, and spirit.


You can rest assured none of our birth professionals will ever share your personal information. Our doulas never post images or status updates about heading to births. They never check in at hospitals. They never posts about clients’ babies or write/publish birth stories. Your privacy is of utmost importance to us. Your body, your birth, and your parenting choices are yours alone to celebrate and to share.

The Sun State Doulas’ Difference…

If you are looking for birth professionals who are knowledgeable, non-judgmental, and supportive, then look no further. Our birth professionals are committed to changing how doulas are viewed by the mainstream birth community. We are committed to being the difference we want to see in the world. We are committed to being different for you.
