Sarah Bourget

I would highly recommend Tamar as a doula. I don't think I could have gone through labour as well as I did and without pain medication without her. She arrived promptly and with a smile. She never flagged nor was I at any given moment without her help and support. She radiates a joy and calm as she goes about her work. I would be honored to have her at any other births I may have in the future.

I would highly recommend Tamar if you are looking for a Doula. Unlike other Doula profiles that I looked at, Tamar spends three sessions with you before your birth to get to know you, as well as providing valuable info and tips on childbirth and infant care. She also does a postpartum visit.

Tamar was a calming presence throughout my birth, which was not an easy one. She was also very good at explaining procedures and clarifying things with the medical staff at the hospital when I could not do so myself. You will not regret having Tamar attend you at the birth of your child.

My husband and I could not be happier with our decision to hire Tamar. She did a great job at preparing us before the birth as well as supporting me through a few false alarms! At Molly's birth, Tamar was integral at helping us understand what was going on and what our options were. She was very supportive of my choices.

Hiring a doula, specifically Tamar, was fantastic and we will be recommending her to anyone we know who wants to have a great birthing experience. From the beginning my husband and I felt very supported in learning what could happen in a labour and birth and with the decisions that we made for what we envisioned ours to look like.  Tamar welcomed any calls or texts throughout the pregnancy whenever I had any questions and provided us with lots of books, readings and DVDS that helped us be as ready as we could be. I also must say that her prenatal massage she gave on the last visit before labour started was fantastic and just what was needed to relax in the last few weeks of pregnancy. Although the long labour and delivery did not end how we had wanted or planned (c-section due to being stuck at 8 cm), Tamar's support, guidance and encouragement throughout the labour for not only myself but my husband as well, still made the whole experience a positive and happy one that I am proud of. I also felt extremely empowered with the knowledge and decisions that we made throughout the pregnancy, labour and delivery.  You cannot go wrong hiring Tamar as your doula.
