Tiffany is amazing! I gave birth to my baby girl just two short weeks ago and I can’t insgine going through the process without Tiffany by our side. We first met with her at 20 weeks where she gave us our guide and walked us through how the entire process would work. Throughout the weeks she would check in and make sure everything was going well with my family and always answered all of the billions of questions I had. With all her tips and tricks I really feel my body was prepped and primed for delivery! Once delivery day came she really made me feel confident and capable with everything that came our way. We had a few random stalls along the way but Tiffany always had my back in all my decisions. All in all I cannot thank her enough for the confidence she gave me and my family through the whole process! Definitely worth it!

Where do I even begin!? My husband and I are beyond words with gratitude for Tiffany! She worked with our finances and jumped right in with no hesitations as I was only a few weeks from my due date and she went above and beyond! She answered countless texts throughout my pregnancy and gave me a great packet of info that prepared me for all things pregnancy and birth related as well as preparation for at home care tips and tricks that made my transition absolutely seamless!! My 34 hour labor started at home where she joined us and she pulled out all the stops to help me progress along! She spent 6 hours with us in our home before we went to the birth facility where she tended to all of my needs and made me feel very well cared for! We later transferred to saddleback after 8 hours of unsuccessful and difficult laboring  where she stayed with us over night and into the next day never leaving our side! This woman held my leg and my head for two hours while I pushed out my baby boy! Each push she was in my ear speaking words of encouragement and empowering me in my most vulnerable times! Because of her presence both my husband and I felt we were in great hands and that we had an advocate on our side who knew us and our wishes!! She’s visited me postpartum bringing a sweet gift for our baby and our puppy and a homemade meal!! She checks on me and makes sure I am well taken care of and I think she is so amazing for that!! I think of Tiffany as an extension of our family and we are so absolutely grateful for her presence! She was born to be a doula and we absolutely love her!!!

Honestly, what isn’t to love about Tiffany? First, the nurses LOVED Tiffany...so she plays well with others! You wouldn’t want your doula to make you doctor or midwife mad, am I right? Also, they were really impressed with how much she knew. Labor is kind of a blur, but you know what I barely remember? What Tiffany did...not because she didn’t do anything...she did A LOT...but she did it so well and so seamlessly that I hardly knew she was there. The back massages...Y’ALL, you have gotta let her give you a back massage! She jumped right in and rubbed my back...for hours upon hours. She got there at about 10am and rubbed my back non-stop until about 6 pm when I finally got my epidural. She stood with my decision to not get an epidural and encouraged to keep going. I made it that long as I did because of her encouragement. She was available for me any time I needed her in the weeks prior and gave me tips and tricks for everything! She gave me oil rollers which I LOVE! When in labor, she put essential oils into a puke bag to smell. It was heaven in that bag. It never left my side. Like her. She never left my side unless I asked her to. She reminded me of my affirmations. When I said that I couldn’t do it anymore, she reminded me that I already was and had been doing it for hours. I could do anything, but gave me the freedom to choose how to proceed. She helped tremendously during pushing and she and my husband as well as the rest of our team worked so well together. Also, my husband really loved working with her. He always said what a blessing she was before labor, during and after labor. My husband couldn’t believe the time, effort, kindness and energy she put into caring for us. If you choose to work with her, you will have nothing short of a blessing. She is seriously amazing and I really feel like our labor and delivery went so well and I was able to cope so well, when things really ramped up, because of her support.

I had my birth at the incredible South Coast Midwifery in Irvine, CA. One of their requirements was to have a doula. At first I was very skeptical and thought I would have been just fine without a doula. But boy was I wrong !! Tiffany was my doula and without her I wouldn’t have survived my labor ! I had horrible back labor and she was there by my side for 9 hours continuously massaging my back, holding my hand and doing everything humanly possible to ease my pain.  Her constant reassurance that I could do this even when I knew I couldn’t, gave me the courage and strength to carry on. During postpartum, Tiffany would check in on me through text and offer encougament and motivation. She even  came to see me and the baby at home and brought a small gift for the baby and her amazing lentil soup for me. 

 I have profound respect and appreciation for Tiffany. She was an amazing doula and now a great friend. I will def seek her help during future pregnancies.

My wife and I hired Tiffany and are so glad we did. This was our first child and even though my wife read a ton of books and we took an extensive birth course, having Tiffany with us made the experience so much better. She has so many tools to help during labor ... including lots of massage!

One hesitation I had about hiring a doula was feeling like I’d be replaced during my wife’s labor but that wasn’t the case at all. Tiffany and I were a great team. Worth every penny and I highly recommend her!  Thanks Tiffany :)  -Steve

My husband and I hired Tiffany rather late in the game in my pregnancy but we are so so glad we did! We definitely would not have had as positive of a birth experience without her!

All along, we were planning on a natural birth and had enrolled in 5 weeks of classes to prepare us, and thought that the coursework, plus all the books I had read, would be adequate to get our little one here. But at the urging of our midwives, I thankfully met with Tiffany about a month before I was due. I immediately felt comfortable with her and was impressed with all the things she offered expecting parents, and knew right away we had to hire her. She came over to our house a few days later for an in home consult and my skeptical husband was on board right away as well! She happily provided answers to my questions as I waited for baby to arrive and a week later, when I went into labor, she came to our house to help as soon as my husband and I felt we needed her support and she stayed at my side for the next 13 hours til our baby boy arrived! She had me labor in different positions with different props to keep labor progressing, urged me to get up and keep moving when contractions slowed, gave me reassurance and pep talks when things were challenging and supported my decision to not get an epidural, even when I told her in the moment I wasn’t sure I could do it. My husband, Midwife and nurses provided support of course but not as thorough and expert and constant as Tiffany. When I started feeling the urge to push, she immediately flagged down my nurse so they could check me and sure enough, I was fully dilated. And SO ready to be done. She coached me through the hour I spent pushing and once baby arrived, she had her phone ready and took photos of our first moments as a family that I will cherish forever!

Even though we added her to our birth team near the end of the road, I can’t imagine the day without her as my coach and advocate!

Dear Tiffany,

no words would  be able to describe the amount of gratitude that me and my wife have for your excellent care.  We will be forever grateful for your professionalism and guidance. whomever reading this testimonial should know that you would be lucky to have her as your dula she is the best choice you can make. As a husband i really didn't know how to cope with the whole ordeal of labors and delivery and I was so happy that we made the decision to hire tiffany as she provided confidence that made my partner feel safe and relaxed. Tiffany  did above and beyond and we are really grateful that she was a part of our journey. she is amazing sweet and worth every penny.

Tiffany I want to wish you and your family a happy holiday season and thank you for being there with us you will always be in our heart when we think about the special day that our lovely son Phoenix was born. by far the best decision we made.

so thank you from the bottom of my heart

Much love and gratitude for me and my family

chris

Tiffany is AMAZING, she was absolutely god send at the birth of my son. 

It can be a bit odd to hire a stranger to be with you at the most intimate moment of your life, but Tiffany has made it feel so natural, I have trusted and depended on her more than my mother and husband together.  working with her was one of the best decisions I’ve made for my birth experience and I honestly could not stop raving about her since.

The great things I could say about Tiffany are endless! She was so supportive, knowledgeable, and had such a warm and calming presence. She felt like a friend right away and that made me feel so comfortable and confident having her as my doula. I met her when I was going to South Coast Midwifery. My baby boy was breech since week 34 and never flipped and Tiffany was with me every step of the way! She came with me as my doula as I transferred to the care of an OB. Her attention to detail was something I really loved about her. She was readily available to come to my bigger milestone appointments. She made me these lovely essential oil rollers and belly/body butter which were so lovely! She is a certified massage therapist so I definitely treated myself to some prenatal massages which were blissful! My water broke and labor started naturally and she met me at the hospital to assist me through the c-section recovery. She helped me establish breast feeding and the first latch just minutes after the surgery was over with and remained with us until we were settled into our hospital suite. I continued to utilize Tiffany’s amazing services as a massage therapist after my son was born to get a little me time! I am beyond grateful for her help during our pregnancy journey and birth experience and I highly recommend Tiffany!

Tiffany was FANTASTIC! My husband & I both loved having her as our doula.  From the first meeting, she was knowledgeable and personable.  We were nervous that we might not find a doula that 'clicked' with us and our personalities, but after meeting Tiffany -- we knew we wanted her at our birth.  She's an incredibly sweet & thoughtful person, which showed throughout our interactions.  

She was great about checking in, asking about when appointments were scheduled -- and then followed up -- it was so nice that she always knew what was going on with the pregnancy.  Tiffany was great about offering some advice/ideas whenever something came up -- things I hadn't necessarily thought of or knew about.  She was very encouraging throughout the whole process.  

For the birth, Tiffany was amazing.  She was extremely helpful at every turn, offering ideas to my husband about what can feel good for me during labor.  She was quick to get needed items and knew what to anticipate (which was helpful to my husband, since this was our first baby & completely natural).  During transition, she was absolutely amazing at counter pressure massage.  It may have been one of the single most helpful things throughout the entire labor, it REALLY HELPED those intense contractions that come one on top of the other.  She continued communication and checking in on us even after the baby was born -- offering whatever support she could.

Tiffany was the perfect doula for us & we can't say enough good things about her!  If we have more kids, we've both said that we'd like to have her as our doula again :)  She gets the highest recommendation from us!

Thank you Tiffany for making our birth such a great experience!

Chris, Rachel, & (big baby) Hunter

Birth angel. Tiffany was amazing.  Throughout my pregnancy and even through to postpartum, she gave me the encouragement and advice that I needed to stay afloat. You don't realize how much you need a doula until you actually go through the birth. While I had a very shortl labor, I was still blown away by the strength she had and the strength she showed me I had. Her skills, knowledge, and kind personality was exactly what I needed. I don't regret having her on my birth team at all.  It was one of the best decisions I made.

Words cannot explain how grateful I am for this angel of a Doula! Early in my pregnancy I considered not having a Doula. I beleived I could just ”tough it out”. When I was 32 weeks I thought I would talk with a few candidates and after meeting Tiffany, we instantly connected and I could tell what role she would play during my birthing time. This was my first born baby boy, and to this day - and forever - I cannot imagine birthing my son without her by my side. She created such comfort and strength in me.  She allowed me to experience the birth I always dreamed of. She is forever a part of my family ??.

Thank you for all that you are Tiffany!

Love Sarah & Wilder

My husband and I couldn't be more grateful to have had Tiffany as our doula. It was obvious she is incredibly knowledgeable and well experienced as she led me through positions and excercises that greatly helped me progress during labor. Any time I seemed to be stalling or having difficulty she knew exactly what to have me try. She is kind, nurturing, empowering and loving. She regualarly and lovingly affirmed me that I was strong, that I was doing an incredible job and that what I was experiencing was normal and safe. During my pregnancy and postpartum Tiffany regualrly checked in on me to see how I was doing and was helpful and responsive to all my questions. Furthermore, she always followed up after every time I'd reached out to see if what I'd been concerned about was resolved. We'd hire Tiffany for every birth if we were planning to have more children and couldn't recommend her more!

We are grateful and appreciative of all that Tiffany has done for us as she was a crucial component to the natural delivery of our baby. Hiring her as our doula was one of the best decisions that we made.

Our little guy decided to arrive 3 weeks early. Tiffany checked in with us numerous times after we initially contacted her. She put us at such ease by normalizing each phase, fear, and emotion we experienced and arrived promptly at the hospital prepared with a plethora of tools. She ensured that both my husband and I were well taken care of and thought of every minute detail in order to make us feel comfortable.

Tiffany is incredibly professional, knowledgeable, patient, responsive, positive, kind, supportive, and sweet. Her background in fitness, nutrition, and massage are additional perks. Her expertise, calming presence and energy, and relaxation techniques helped progress my labor in a short amount of time. Her motto was to maintain as much movement as possible and to find positions that were soothing; when one technique did not work she had at least three other ideas in mind to try.

Although we had taken prenatal classes, much of what we learned went out the window. Tiffany reminded us about our birth wishes as it was our goal to have an intervention free birth. She helped capture priceless photos and stayed until we were sent to the maternity ward. The staff was impressed at how she worked with us as well as the staff in a gentle and respectful manner and how we were able to fully implement our birth preferences. After the birth she contacted us regularly and also visited us at our home. Since she herself is a mother, it was nice to be able to speak to her candidly regarding various newborn related topics.

It is apparent that her true calling is a doula. She is genuinely passionate about this line of work as she cares deeply for others. We highly recommend her to be a part of anyone’s birth team!
