clients testimonial for an amazing birth & pregnancy
With so much gratitude to all of our teachers, friends and family who support our vision of making the world a better place one gentle birth and mother at a time with peace, love, connectedness and understanding.
I spent most of my pregnancy at the Red Tent and I credit Lisa for making it so peaceful. She truly facilitated my beautiful, natural birth and my baby's wonderful entrance into the world. The Red Tent is a gift to mothers, south Florida is lucky to have it. ~ Erin A.
My husband and I went to the Red Tent & Amazing Births for hypnobirthing class and we loved it! It really helped us both prepare for a peaceful home birth. Lisa's class also helped us just enjoy all aspects of the pregnancy experience. I have such wonderful memories of of being at the Red Tent and will definitely be going back for the next baby. ~Lynne'a
Lisa Kelly is the most professional, loving, giving doula anywhere. My husband and I attended hypnobirthing classes at the Red Tent & Amazing Births and she made us feel very comfortable. Lisa is very open to questions and concerns, and is non-judgmental regarding your choices during your birth experience (natural, drug, etc.). Lisa isn't overbearing, more of a "go with the flow but let's get the job done you can do it" doula. She makes you want to be the best you can be, while calming you and making you feel it's okay to not be so hard on yourself. I am extremely thankful to have met her, to have her in our lives, and to HIGHLY RECOMMEND her to anyone who wants to have a wonderful birth experience. Lisa was also able to take our first family pictures together after I gave birth, and I not only treasure the (by my choice) waist-up pictures from both births, but I treasure her too. Check her out as your doula, your pregnancy massage therapist...she is PHENOMENAL!~Meredith
Lisa Kelly has been the best massage therapist I have ever used. I met here when I was pregnant with my first child 7 yrs ago. She helped me through my physical and mental transformation into motherhood. She was also was my doula for both of my births. My husband loved her the most because she helped me relax during labor and it took the pressure off of him so he could enjoy the moment. I'm thankful to have her in my life. ~D.N
Lisa and The Red Tent played an important role in the birth of my son. My husband and I attended the weekend hypnobirthing series with Lisa as the instructor. It was a wonderful experience. Lisa is extremely knowledgeable about childbirth, and The Red Tent is a very safe and peaceful environment. We felt so comfortable with Lisa that we asked her to be our doula. She helped us have the natural childbirth that I wanted for us and our baby. I have so much pride and satisfaction with the outcome, and I have to give Lisa a lot of credit. I was in labor for 16 hours and delivered our baby at 3 a.m. Lisa was tireless, stayed by my side, offered helpful suggestions, and above all, helped me stay focused and reminded me of my strength. I really can't say enough wonderful things about her. Our baby (now 6 months) is such a peaceful, happy little guy, and I attribute much of his spirit to the way he was brought into the world. We are looking forward to attending “mama and baby” yoga classes at The Red Tent! We are so fortunate to have such a wonderful resource in our community!~ Shereen
We are here to comfort you, care for you and gently nourish the wise woman that you are.....
We are so thrilled our paths crossed. You were instrumental in making our birth the gentle, memorable, and awesome experience we were looking forward to-it was better than we ever imagined! It definitely would not have been the same without your presence and calmness. Thank you! Thank you! Thank You! We will never forget the role you played in bringing our baby into the world peacefully! ....
Lisa provided support and materials for my “ideal” birth prior to and during my labor and birth. This was my first baby, so everything was unknown. I was told I was not progressing well and had a large baby, C-section was mentioned as well as other interventions including pitocin and internal monitors. Lisa kept me focused and relaxed and all were avoided, it was wonderful, I would never give birth without a doula!
I have been a labor and delivery nurse for 23 years and I welcome the doulas role and appreciate their support, especially as the nurse’s role continues to get busier and we have increased responsibilities and patient loads.

Lisa, this comes to thank-you for your service as my doula. Your constant support & encouragement & calm! Asssited me in achieving the birth experience I so hoped for and (no c-section!). Having you with me during labor made me feel safe and confident so that I was able to completely melt into myself, roll with my labor, instead of fight it, and progress toward my goal of a VBAC. many sincere thanks for a postive birth experience I will forever cherish and a feeling of empowerment that I will never forget!

Dear Lisa, I don’t know where to begin to thank you for everything you have done for us. You made it possible for us to have the birth we wanted. Thank-you again for all of your support. I will recommend you to everyone I know who wants to have great birthing experience.
Vivian, thank you so much for being my doula and friend. You don't know how much you gave to me by believing in me when I didn't. Your soothing voice and pleasant demeanor all helped me through my delivery. You have a special gift and I'm so fortunate to have met you. We are so grateful to you for your care and attention.
I was very impressed with Lisa’s kindred spirit and knowledge. She was very aware of the patient’s needs and when to let her be. She was very cooperative with me as well.

Lorie, we are so appreciative that you were our doula. Your patience, guidance, love and support made our birth a wonderful experience. Thank you again and again…having you as a doula was the best decision we made in our birth!

The benefits of having an experienced doula are tremendous. I truly believe that having her present made it possible for my husband & I to have a beautiful natural birth experience! I am eternally grateful.

David and I would like to express to you our gratitude for your presence during the labor and delivery of Jacklyn into the world. Your calmness and strength helped me thorough the rough parts and the aromatherapy was really beneficial!

Thank you Lorie for helping make my labor a beautiful experience! Let me know if you ever need a reference. I will be happy to highly refer you to anyone for doula services!
Having Amazing Births in my life during pregnancy and labor was a gift that I will always cherish. Lisa's massages were so relaxing and helped to calm my mind, soothe my spirit and take away the minor discomforts pregnancy brought me. The HypnoBirthing class was conforting. It provided time for my husband and me to be together and be excited and focused on our soon-to-be new baby. It was such an education to hear all of the different types of births you could have. So many people focus only on the outcome of labor and this class and daily practices allowed us the opportunity to dream about and visualize what the actual experience would be like. Staying present during the experience was something we were committed to do. Lisa and Lorie with their years of experiences basically had us prepared for anything and helped to talk through some difficult decisions we had to make along the way. They were patient and present and so understanding. Had we listened to them, our results would have been different. We had our doula present during our labor. The effects of her being there were paramount. She was so calming, encouraging, accepting, nurturing and, most of all, helpful. While offering her encouragement to make some very difficult decisions she also made sure to respect our decisions. Her presence gave me the strength to endure (a Pitocin-induced labor) and focus on a calm labor and delivery. She made sure the room was quiet and comfortable at all times and helped to keep my distractions to a minimum. In addition to being a great doula, it felt so good to know that my baby would be born with such a bright light in the room. I would recommend using Amazing Births to absolutely everyone. I feel lucky to have met women like Lisa, and Nadine.
Lisa was both helpful to the patient and the patient’s family. She helped the patient focus, maintained a professional environment and worked well with the “conventional” medical staff. ~A.A.,OB/GYN
I can't thank you enough for all your help during my labor! All of your pre-labor instructions really helped to make the difference this time. I had a beautiful birth experience. Thank you!
