Going into my first pregnancy I knew my husband and I would need some extra help. I felt very comfortable with Tanji from the first time I met her. She's very sweet and endearing. Tanji was actively involved before, during, and after my daughter’s birth. Prior to my daughter’s birth, we met several times in person and discussed our birthing plan and practiced various birthing techniques.
My labor progressed very quickly and Tanji arrived to the hospital in record timing (she traveled from Brooklyn to Jersey) and arrived around the same time that we did. Something about her presence and guidance made the world of difference when it came calming me down. Before she arrived I was full on screaming. My midwife even commented on how she got me to stop screaming. The breathing guidance and massages she performed on my back were amazing during my contractions.
She was also very helpful after my daughter was born when I had a bit of a complication. She stayed by my side as my husband attended to our baby. Additionally, she also helped point us in the right direction when we had trouble nursing and today at 3 months, my daughter is thriving and gaining well while being exclusively breast-fed. Tanji even came for a postpartum visit, which I really appreciated.
I highly recommend Tanji because she's very knowledgeable in what she does and is a great support to have during one of the most important moments a women experiences in life.
