The journey through pregnancy, birth, and parenthood is one of great magnitude. And it's a journey you don't have to make alone. I'm Renee Dudley, the birth doula behind Scruffy City Doula Services. Birth is my expertise and supporting families is my passion. I bring compassionate, unbiased, and experienced care to families throughout Knoxville and East Tennessee. My goal is for each one of my clients to leave their birth and postpartum experience feeling heard, supported, and empowered.



As your doula, I pride myself in providing you and your partner with care, understanding, information and support throughout your journey through birth. Our initial meeting will help me tailor my packages to fit your needs and desires for birth and beyond. Please reach out to schedule a complimentary in person or phone consultation, and to learn more about my practice.

Those two pink lines appear and suddenly your world is changed. A door is opened and you begin to start finding your way through territory that may feel uncharted and unclear. As your birth doula, my goal is to walk that path alongside you and see you through to the other side as the knowledgable, experienced, compassionate care you can depend on. From our initial consult, all the way through your pregnancy and birth, I work to support you and your wishes, helping you find your footing through this most significant journey.
