A Wedding Coordinator–For Birth

A wedding on the beach

A doula is like a wedding coordinator.

Would you hire a Central Florida event planner for an important celebration?
An Orlando doula from The Sunshine Baby Company is specially trained in supporting a family (non-medically) throughout the birth and postpartum process: preparation for, during and after birth.

A wedding coordinator takes the couple’s plans, personalities, preferences and limits into consideration, and acts upon their wishes. So does a doula!

The local wedding coordinator knows the best places to have a classic Disney fairytale wedding as well as unique Orlando ceremony and reception locations.

Your doula knows what Central Florida obstetrician/midwife/hospital might be the best fit.

If the W.C.’s job is done right, most guests don’t even realize there is a wedding coordinator. She stays behind the scenes, helping keep the pace of the wedding and reception moving, handling difficult situations like inappropriate guests, and facilitating the couple’s wishes. So does a doula.

The W.C. is not the minister or the justice of the peace in most cases, and she has no authority to act on the couple’s behalf beyond the scope in which she was hired. Neither does a doula.

“A doula is kind of like a wedding coordinator—they both help couples prepare for, and enjoy, one of the most transformational events of their lives.”

— Staci Plonsky

Similarly, A doula takes the couple’s plans, personalities, preferences and limits into consideration, and acts upon their wishes.

A SBC doula’s focus is on supporting Central Florida parents as they make decisions, move through labor, and get to know the newest member of the family.

Birth is like a blind date where you know you will meet the love of your life.”
