Shira S. | Doula in Jacksonville, FL

A Birth Connection

    Practice overview

    I began my practice as a newborn care specialist in 2009 and worked my way up to becoming a birth and postpartum doula in 2016 followed by my certification in lactation. Birth and postpartum care has always been a passion of mine. I love providing families with the whole package. I consider myself a healer and nurturer who listens to your needs, wants, concerns and questions.

    I attend prenatal appointments, work with you and partner if one is present, I offer birth photography, hypnobirthing, spinning babies, breastfeeding support, & postpartum care.

    I do limit the amount of birth clients and postpartum clients each month depending on birth/postpartum ratio.

    Inclusion is very important to me ❤️

      Shira is a gifted doula. She was with me for the prenatal, birth and postnatal.
      She is very knowledgeable and resourceful. I am very grateful that I was introduced to her and recommended. She is a beautiful soul, supportive, positive, kind and giving.
      I was pregnant with my first child and I was scared. She was only one text or phone call away to help me be at ease and in a better mindset about what I was going though.
      I highly recommend Shira!!!

      She was my rock in the delivery room and helped guide me through the pain and breathing techniques.

      Shira has a contagious smile and spirited personality! She connected so well not only with my newborn, but my toddler and dog too! Shira has great input with postpartum and infant needs. I highly recommend Shira to be apart of your family too!

      Shira was a calming and helpful resource after our twins were born. She made PBJs for a hungry mama, cleaned pump parts, and got our babies to sleep when they were just a couple weeks old overnight.

      If you are able to afford a postpartum doula , I highly recommend it. Even two nights we spent with Shira made an enormous difference for our mental health when we had a break and got some sleep. Xoxox
