Tessa Stitt

Tanesha was my doula for my first birth. From the moment we met I felt comfortable with her and relief to have her support during my first pregnancy. I went into labour in the middle of the night and she met me at the hospital and stayed with me for 24 hours before my emergency c-section. During my labour she was a great support to me and my husband. She remained calm and in turn helped me stay calm. She had an arsenal of ideas to help me through the burden pain and discomfort. When I had difficulty with breastfeeding she was a huge help and very encouraging. If I hadn't had a planned c-section for my second child I would have hired her again, and over the years I have recommended her, and doulas in general, to every pregnant friend.

Tanesha was amazing during my long labour. I really appreciated her calm, nurturing, focused presence,her ability to go with whatever was happening and be there to support me in ways I needed, respecting my wishes, as well as encouraging me to try different things; positions, walking, squatting, breathing etc. as needed. I loved that she worked so well with my other support people;midwife, partner, friend and intuitively seemed to know when I wanted/needed the support of my partner or friend, when they needed a break, and when to step in herself.  She really was an incredible support to my whole family and birth team.

I had the support of Tanesha through out my entire pregnancy and I wouldn't change one thing! She was calm through all the chaos, supportive, and knew exactly how to support not only myself and my husband, but all those who helped to bring my daughter into the world.

From the moment I met Tanesha, I knew she would be the right fit. Tanesha was our doula for both of our kids. Prior to the due date, she met with us and we talked about our plans and learned about pressure points (which helped!) and labour yoga. Each birth was unique and required different skills, but both also needed the caring and compassionate presence that Tanesha offers. She allowed my partner to be the major support for me during labour by making sure both of our needs were met. Postpartum visits were essential and part of what Tanesha does - we are all (babes included) so thankful for her presence and her commitment to the birth process.

Tanesha was our doula for our first birth, and what an amazing experience it was! To have someone there who had not only experienced two of her own births, but was so well versed in ways to help make my birth more comfortable was more than I could have asked for! She was there every step of the way! (Even when we were heading to the hospital and my car wouldn't start! lol)
