Sourav Banerjee

Tabitha has been great with our son. As our postpartum doula, she also gave the confidence boost and guidance that my wife needed as a first-time mom. She's knowledgeable, efficient, and reliable, and has a lot of experience about childcare. She's friendly and approachable, and parents can ask questions easily. She is the ideal postpartum support for new parents, and I highly recommend her.

Ms Maria was essential in the beginning stages of the birth. She was observant to address the concerns for my family and birthing mother and father and any questions from other family members. Her presence was always needed and appreciated while providing comfort to my family. 

Due to the shift change and long labor process, we were allowed two Doulas.


Ms Tabitha was profoundly knowledgable in all regards to the birthing and provided assistance with effective communication betweeen our family dynamics. During times of serious concern, she provided answers and relayed the necessary information to ensure defusing the anxieties and frustration that were mounting. Her sensitive nature and kind mannerism proved essential to us when moving from the labor and delivery room. This service is essential for those under various circumstances such as first time births, limited room capacities for personnel, offering clear and practical explanations about terminology used frequently by doctors and nurses that appear foreign to families and patients. If your thinking, websites now grant this insite, my response is websites do not provide tangible human comfort, nor are we assured about the creditbility of the answers they provide.

Tabitha was wonderful throughout my birth experience. She helped advocate for me, explained  interventions and most importantly just talked to me. She coached my pushing which was very helpful and I was able to push for one hour, giving birth faster than I expected. 10/10 would recommend to anyone who is looking for extra birth support.
