Jennifer Tite


I highly recommend Erica! When looking for a doula, I was looking for someone who came from a social justice & activist perspective and I found that in Erica. She asked me and my husband questions that helped us think about what we valued and wanted out of the birth. I birthed at Mercy and from my view they seemed welcoming and accepting of doulas, and also had praise for Erica. I had a pitocin induction without painkillers and when recounting my birth story I keep saying the 3 things that were invaluable were my husband, my doula, and my TENS unit. The hands-on support was soo helpful and Erica worked well with my husband so that he could also effectively provide support and comfort. Erica's postpartum support has also been great, and even weeks after the birth she has checked in on us.

Erica was my birth and postpartum doula and an essential member of my birth team. She is an excellent listener and checked in with me at every step of the way to ensure she was meeting my needs and expectations. I am so grateful for her help preparing emotionally for birth, her encouragement throughout labor, and her assistance with my little one as a super frazzled, over-exhausted new mom. If you are looking for a thoughtful, caring, and professional support person during your pregnancy and parenthood journey, I highly recommend Erica!!
