Here is what a client named Sara Kovacsi-Rizzo has to say about working with Tara:
There are so many wonderful things that I want to say about Tara, that I don't know where to begin. I had a lot of fear as I was preparing to give birth for the first time. I had suffered a miscarriage in November of 2019, which left me with a lot of pregnancy-related anxiety, on top of my normal anxiety that I usually cope with. I was afraid of the pain of child birth; I was afraid because I didn't know what to expect; I was afraid up until the day my son was born that the doctor was going to tell me that there was something horribly wrong, and I had somehow lost my baby again. Tara was so compassionate, and helped me get through my fears. I truly believe that I was able to have a vaginal birth because I had Tara there to support me. From the time she got to the hospital, until the moment my son was born, I had absolutely no fear about what was happening. Her childbirth class had prepared me so well, and while it's impossible to truly be "ready" to become a parent for the first time, it helped that I knew what the next steps might be. My pregnancy was considered high risk, both because of my age and the fact that I was diagnosed with Gestational Diabetes; Tara was there to help me navigate all of the difficulties that entailed. I was originally scheduled to be induced, but I ended up going into labor on my own at 38+6, and my son was born at exactly 39 weeks. Things that Tara had recommended to me to help make labor easier, I believe, contributed to the fact that even though I was giving birth for the first time, I went into labor on my own without any assistance. (I ate my dates reigiously!) Tara was able to sit for my epidural with me, which helped the process go as smoothly as I could have hoped. One of my friends is pregnant with her first child, and I have told her so many times how supportive and comforting Tara was to me throughout my entire labor. I know for sure that when my husband and I have our second child, we will want Tara with us again!
Here is what a client named Maria Cristina has to say about working with Angelina :
Angelina was my doula for the birth of our second child this past October. At first I was a little hesitant to give this doula thing another go (we used one for the birth of our first child and it was a stressful power struggle between the doula and nursing staff). But as my pregnancy progressed, I knew how lucky we were to have Angelina in our corner. She made herself available to us throughout the entire pregnancy. Questions about pregnancy quirks, anxiety about birth, emotional support- she was there! She met with us in the 3rd trimester to chat and go into detail about my birthing plan, my must haves, and the things I absolutely wanted to stay away from. Boy was she thorough!! When it came time for labor, she never left our side. Angelina was extremely professional, and worked flawlessly alongside my medical team. Her calming presence immediately had me feeling very comfortable and at ease. She helped to keep me focused and on track- timing contractions, rubbing my back, and reminding me of my options each and every step of the way! She was a rock for my partner, feeding her confidence, and allowing the space for my wife to adequately guide me through my labor. She effortly navigated us. She caringly advocated for us. She left an imprint of strength and love on our birth story. So incredibly blessed to have had Angelina as our birth doula!
