About me

My name is Virginia Parent. I am a Birth and Postpartum Doula located in Venice, Florida. I have been a Doula for the last 3 years serving families from Lakewood Ranch, Myakka city, to Fort Myers. I believe all families deserve to have a supported birth experience. As a mother of 4, I have experienced two hospital births, one which was an induction and a NICU baby; and I have experienced two midwife supported water births. I have formula fed, exclusively pumped, and exclusively breastfed. My large range of personal experience helps me to remind my clients that birth has a wide range of normal and allows me to relate, personally, to clients no matter how they choose to give birth. I am here to help mother's experience a cozy and welcoming journey into their new roles as mothers and as a family.

Service introduction

As a birth doula I am to care and support a pregnant person and their partner before, during, and after labor. I aim to provide emotional support, physical comfort, client confidentiality, client advocacy such as communicating with staff to obtain information that a client may need to make an informed decision during labor. I can provide reassurance, relaxation techniques, suggested laboring positions, massages, and pressure points during labor. I am dedicated to providing you with educational and emotional support throughout your pregnancy and labor. I am here to support you with making informed decisions. I am here to provide you with physical support during labor. I am committed to helping families secure positive and memorable birth journeys. Services include prenatal visits, on-call labor support, 24/7 phone support, and 4th trimester postpartum support. Additionally, I work with a Partner Doula to ensure you always have a Doula available for your needs. You will meet the Partner Doula during all visits and have access to both of us throughout your pregnancy.
