Tenth Month Doula Services has been around since 1994. Over the years, doulas have become more well known and have been in the news more and more. In 1994, in South Florida there were no doula services. Many hospitals were hesitant to make referrals. Now, there are hundreds of doulas in that part of Florida. Most hospitals welcome the doulas. Doulas are a vital addition to the birth team, and can provide the solid, evidence-based information that families need to make informed decisions.
