I met Vonda through an event held by Doulananda. It was a meet and greet with the intention of helping expectant mothers find a doula that they would feel comfortable with. There were several doulas there, but almost immediately, even before speaking with her, I knew Vonda was the person I wanted supporting me through the rest of my pregnancy …

It was an honor and an absolute pleasure to work with Vonda Bartlett. I truly was blessed that after the Doula Meet and Greet in Growing Families St. Augustine, I had submitted an essay to qualify for a scholarship. At the end of the meet and greet, Vonda calls and tells me that she would love to work with me. …

Today I have the birth story that I’ve always wanted to be able to tell, thanks in a huge part to my doula, Vonda Bartlett. I first met Vonda at a “Meet The Doula event. Personally, I felt like a big challenge during labor would be remaining calm and Vonda’s voice alone was calming. Since I was already 37 weeks when …

Doula Vonda is the kindest, gentlest person I know. This is the perfect career for her! She taught us Hypnobirthing when we had 2 months left before the birth of our 2nd son. She was very caring throughout the entire learning process and made sure we understood all the concepts. It made us so excited and look forward to labor …

I can honestly say I don’t know what I would have done without my doula, Vonda. From the moment I found out I was pregnant I knew wanted low intervention birth. I was scared about the birth, this being my first pregnancy, but I decided to educate myself in relaxation techniques and natural methods to make the process as comfortable …

For this …

Vonda is an absolutly wonderful Doula, and someone you will want to have as part of your birthing team.  She assited me with my 6th delivery – and the first that I have had a doula at.  I was acting as a surrogate mother to a couple expecting their first child, and my own husband was unable to attend the …

I always knew I wanted a doula, Hospitals can be a scary place and having someone with the inside scoop seemed to only make sense when giving birth. I instantly felt like Vonda might know what the hell is going on in a state of chaos. We were 4 days late and went in for a NST and baby was …

Analise’s Birth

I started off Friday, 11/15 with the normal occasional crampy contractions.  Thinking it was going to be a regular day, I went to get a pedicure with my doula Vonda, While there, I had several contractions in a row.  We joked that the pedicure would start up my labor which I really hoped to be true.  I was due for induction …
