In my experience, I’ve had the pleasure of working with three different postpartum doulas…Tammy Huguenin was, by far, THE BEST…Her help was paramount in pulling me back from the dark and lonely abyss that I sank into after the birth of my third child…
It was a difficult pregnancy, resulting in a Cesarean section, involving the NICU, severe anxiety, coupled with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and (of course) Postpartum Depression—all with little to no support. I was drowning. And I knew that I was in no condition to take care of myself or my children.
Tammy Huguenin was a light amidst the shadows. She mothered me, she mothered my baby, my other two children—she mothered my whole family while I gained the strength to do it on my own. And Tammy helped me to find that strength. She was there to teach me so much, and to support and encourage me along the way. She aided me in setting up a sleep schedule for my fussy baby; she assisted me with breastfeeding issues such as weening when I was ready and needed to do so; she showed me how to feed my family meals that are both nutritious and economical; she helped me learn to budget my time and run my household more efficiently; she was there for mom to mom advice on everything from teething to sensory disorders…and so much more…Tammy kept me afloat when the postpartum storm threatened to take me down.
Tammy loves her job and it showed every moment she was with me—every moment she was building me back up—every moment she used her talent, care, compassion, experience, and dedication to help me put the pieces of my life back together…
Whatever your situation, you can’t find a better Postpartum Doula (or human being, for that matter) than Tammy Huguenin.
Tammy helped me after the birth of each of my four children, her support and encouragment was so uplifting. After my first birth I was 19 years old, and trying to balance a very unhealthy relationship with the father while recovering from an emergency c-section and adjusting to life as a new mother. Her compassion and understanding in my unique situation was amazing. With my second pregnancy, two and a half years later, I was in a much better place with my new husband and my toddler. I scheduled a repeat c-section, and after the birth she was so helpful while I adjusted from being a mother of one to a mother of two. My third birth my husband and I decided to try a VBAC (vaginal birth after c-section) with an epidural, thankfully the birth went well but I did have some problems with post partum depression and anxiety. Tammy helped me and my family adjust to having a new baby, and the advice and encouragement she gave me helped me in so many ways. With my last pregnancy, I had a VBAC without any medication. While the birth was successful, I did have an anxiety attack during labor. After the birth, my depression and anxiety were much worse than I had expected it to be. This being my fourth child, I thought I knew what to expect and what to do, but I found myself unsure and in need of some guidance. Tammy's support left me feeling empowered and confident, I can't thank her enough.
