Kait Ochoa

Tara is absolutely AMAZING!! She stood by me throughout my entire pregnancy; all the aches and pains and the false alarms! She was always available to answer my questions. She genuienly cared about my pregnancy and the birth of my little angel and wanted to make sure I had everything I needed so that I was prepared. I definetely took advantage of that! She was so helpful, knowledgeable, and so patient with me as I was an anxious, first time mom! She most definitely loves what she does, and it shows. I defintely reccomend Tara to anyone who wants to make a beautiful experience an even more special one. I love her!!!

I was referred to tara by a very dear friend of mine. At the time, I had no idea what a doula was and why I needed one.  This was my first pregnancy, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. After doing some research, I decided I would call Tara and see if a doula was right for me. After meeting with her the first time, I felt as though I definitely wanted her by my side when I gave birth to my child. She was knowledgeable, and made me feel at ease about the birthing process. I would absolutely recommend her to any pregnant friends. I will be using her again, if I can convince my husband to have another child! ;)
