I cannot say enough wonderful things about my experience with Tiffany. From our very first meeting I felt safe and comfortable with her.  She met with us before birth at times that were convenient for my husband and I at our house and answered all of our questions regarding the birthing process.  She emphasized that as my doula, she would be there to meet my needs. She never pushed her own agenda but offered the support my husband and I needed. This was extremely important to me that she never had her own agenda with me but was always willing to support my birth decisions. I had several weeks of preterm labor scares and Tiffany was a constant safe friend I could call or text with questions or advice.  She even brought me her birthing ball and essential oils to use at home prior to heading to the hospital.  During labor, Tiffany stayed by my side throughout the entire thing and provided excellent techniques to progress labor along as well life-saving comfort measures when contractions were most painful. She also coached my husband on how to help me which I was so thankful for and gave him more confidence while he watched me labor. Tiffany really MADE my birthing experience a wonderful one. She surrounded my family with care, support, encouragement and knowledge before birth, during labor and after our son was born. After the birth she met with us to check in and offer any help as well as breastfeeding advice. She wrote out our birth story to share with our son some day and even offered a little gift for him. We are so grateful we chose Tiffany to be our doula and would hire her again in a heartbeat.

Tiffany was very outgoing, friendly, and nice. She kept in touch via e-mail and texting, and provided helpful labor techniques, which unfortunately, due to my quick labor, we were unable to try! 

At the hospital, she was very helpful. She helped with labor, went to get water and ice chips, and talked to the nurses so my husband was able to stay by my side. After the birth Tiffany even ran out to grab some epsom salt so I could take a bath later (and so my husband wouldn't have to leave). I am so glad we had her there as I don't think I could have handled being left alone if my husband had to do the running around. She also took pictures for us, which was super nice. 

The postpartum visits were really nice as it gave us a chance to talk about the birth and Tiffany even wrote us a lovely birth story, which was really nice as the whole thing was pretty much a blur for me. I highly recommend Tiffany, even after the postpartum visits, she still keeps in touch!
