Find  a birth or postpartum doula. There are a range of levels of experience for doulas from the newly trained doula to a doula with many years experience.  There are a range of "well seasoned" to "brand new" doulas to fit your needs. Doulas listed on our website do not work for MBRN or the Local Chapter.  We support a mother's right to choose the type of birth that is right for her - un-medicated, medicated, cesarean, VBAC, home birth, hospital birth, or birth center birth.  Every woman will choose birth practices that she feels is right for her and regardless of those choices, our goal is to support her during this incredibly important time.  There are variations in philosophies and practices in the professionals listed in our member guide.  The doulas within our network are trained by a national or internationally recognized organization.  It is the responsibility of each consumer to verify the credentials of each professional.  MBRN encourages consumers to interview professionals to determine which professional is the right person for their needs.  Some doulas may provide volunteer services while others will charge a fee for service, MBRN does not regulate a doulas' fee but the network does encourage doulas participating in this program to consider each families' situation and circumstances.

Phone: 718-521-9183

I am Krystina “Nina” Lucas. I am a Birth and Postpartum Doula, Fertility Support, Photographer and Organic gardener. I have been studying and celebrating women through out the local the community in Brooklyn,NY before moving to Jacksonville,Florida.


After working as a Certified Nursing Assistant for a few years, I knew I wanted to go deeper into women's health. I’ve always had a connection to helping women through life changes but Its my passion to provide pregnancy, labor and postpartum support.


That's when I just fell in love with the idea of being a Doula. Being a Doula has touched a different part of me. While watching women learn and heal themselves, I too was healing.
My goal is to help provide factual information, educate new mothers as well as fathers, help with physical and emotional support. And help guide you through your journey.

Jane Szerba, certified DONA Birth Doula, retired Navy Wife of 31 years, mother of 3 amazing daughters. Born and raised in Eastern Pennsylvania, graduate of Kutztown University and married to my high school best friend in 1988.  In 1990 we had our first daughter, Margaret, at the Naval Hospital Pensacola. Our second daughter, Ashley, was born in 1992 in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Our third and final child was born at the Bethesda Naval Hospital (almost the parking lot) in 1995. The military moved us several times but our family settled in Jacksonville, Florida.

Pregnancy, labor, childbirth education and breast feeding have always been a passion of mine. From a very young age I was fascinated with everything there was to do with birth, my dream was to become a birth doula.  My first doula experience was 21 years ago, May of 1998.  I continued to do whatever I could to help other mothers, especially women whose husbands were out to sea.  I continued my reading and education, always wanting to one day become a doula.  Finally, in 2017, I made the decision to retire from teaching elementary school and begin my quest to become a certified doula.  

 I truly believe that birth is a natural occurrence and that every woman has the ability to birth, her way, and that they can be supported in all births, including home deliveries, natural births in hospitals or birth centers, medicated or un-medicated, vaginal births after cesarean (VBAC), planned or unplanned cesareans. Birth doulas can empower women to have a positive birthing experience during pregnancy and childbirth. As a doula, I will provide a calm, encouraging presence which can help eliminate fear and offer continuous support throughout pregnancy, birth, and postpartum.

Sara Wince

{Birth Doula}

Website: My Sisters Keeper Doula Services

Email: sarawincedoula@gmail.com

Phone: (904)-514-6342

My name is Sara Wince. I am currently living in Jacksonville, FL with my husband Jared, and my two young daughters. My passions, pastimes, dreams, and desires are focused around my faith in Christ, birth, babies, relaxation, continuing education, hard work, and family time. I love books, country roads, herbal tea, and good friends.

I recognize that every mother and baby need something different, but all mothers, babies, and families benefit from continuous labor support from a trained birth professional, and from a better understanding of the childbearing processes and the options available to you. My role is to provide professional physical, emotional, and informational support to mothers, and aid in advocacy during pregnancy, labor, birth, and postpartum.

I have a deep desire to help childbearing women in all stages of life and have a particular soft-spot for working with military families. As a military spouse myself, I understand the challenges that childbearing, military families face. My goal and passion through doula work is to be a safe space in unfamiliar places; a source of comfort when separation happens during pregnancy, delivery, and postpartum; and to empower women through their own journeys. This sacred work is my calling and I cannot wait to help other families usher in parenthood through education and support.
