Introducing baby Remi Leighton, our latest Fort Myers doula baby born to a determined 2nd time mom!

Tara is a mom of two boys and one pup, with her background in social work. From Christine: Dana came to Mindful Birth looking for a doula in Fort Myers, having moved here from Gainesville. We were able to connect her to our doula services quickly, and she was the kind of mom who could sense that birth was BIG and required her full attention. Dana and her husband registered for our online Birthing From Within childbirth classes, and Dana was tuned in every class, taking notes, taking it all in. When we had group coaching cal
