Attends hospital births? All Hospitals
I love building a good rapport and respect with the birth workers in the hospital and make it a point to tour every new hospital I work in to stay up to date with procedures, protocol, and the space in general.
Attends birth center births? All Birth Centers
I think Birth Centers are a great balance between the hospital and home. I love how they provide the relaxing setting necessary for a comfortable birth while still providing that security of your health needs being met.
Attends home births? Any Home Birth
Much of my birth experience is with home births and I love helping families bring new life into thier home.

JoAnna Price

I can't say enough good things about our experience having T'Arah as our doula. From the initial meeting through the postpartum visit, she was an anchor in our birth experience. My husband was hesitant at first to hire a doula but after meeting with T'Arah prior to the birth he felt more confident about everything. I also felt more confident but even more importantly very comfortable knowing that she would be with us during labor and delivery. She kept us calm and gently guided us through the experience while still allowing it to naturally unfold. I would hire her again in a heartbeat. T'Arah, you are the sweetest and we are so blessed that you were a part of one of the most beautiful experiences of our lives!
