..authentically serving women and families

Pregnancy & birth will change you, one way or another. How that unfolds is unique to each person. Maybe you need emotional and physical support, information, or someone beside you who has been through it before. That is where I step in!  The roles that I have in relationship to being your doula are the following:


  • To encourage your growth in prenatal, labor and delivery, lactation and perinatal education

  • To facilitate your acquisition of resources pertaining to your particular needs

  • To support peaceful relations between you and your medical professionals

  • To provide emotional and physical support in the childbirth process

  • To inspire your confidence as a mother and help you prepare for the incredible adventure of growing your family

 

Why I'm a Doula

The experience of pregnancy and birth has evolved over the years, especially in today’s modern era. I believe that the need for caring, sensitive and knowledgeable support during this time is becoming more and more apparent. I see every pregnancy and birth as a miracle and as a Doula, I feel honored to be able to help women and families in sunny, Southwest Florida.

 

Meet Amy Lynn Kucharski

I am a woman’s woman. You know, the kind of woman who digs deep into the riches of relationships. The kind of woman who respects the Matriarchs for their wisdom and contributes to those in emotional need by giving soulfully from within myself.


I was born and raised in Fort Myers, Florida. In 2001, I made my way to Chicago where I completed my B.A. in Arts & Entertainment Management. After an exciting yet grueling and unfulfilling 10 years in the fine-dining restaurant and entertainment business, I had a life and career changing epiphany. It went as follows: “I am a woman who serves. Who is in need of my acts of service?”


In 2013, that epiphany became a reality when I began caring for very elderly women in what felt like my first “mothering” role. I believe that the vision is only the first stone on the path and that the actions that follow are the stepping stones that take you to your true purpose. I have walked my path by caring for these women, my own grandparents and the children and loved ones of others and became a mother myself in 2016. My heart overflows with joyful love and gratitude.


The evolution of my career has repeatedly found it's place in the care of women. And the manifestation of my life’s work is my fondest professional role yet, it is that of a Doula.


Providing physical in-person support, being intuitive, emotionally attentive and utilizing my colorful knowledge of pregnancy, birth and early parenting has made an incredible difference to the clients I serve.


I dove deep into my education through DONA International, the leader in evidence-based doula training, certification and continuing education. I am in the process of finishing my certification and have completed the hands-on training, childbirth classes and lactation education thus far. I am nurturing, compassionate, patient and kind. And when it is necessary, I know exactly how to reach in and unlock the power in others in order for them to own their experience and create a life altering story.


I recognize each client’s birth as a unique opportunity for a woman to find herself as a mother and consider it a privilege each and every time I am invited in to support that journey.
