Tigist was a great help to us in the birth of our third child last month. She came to our house for two prenatal visits during which we discussed our plans and expectations for labor and birth, as well as practiced coping techniques. We were most interested in learning about massage and how to use the rebozo and she showed us both – and helped us apply them during labor (although the baby came just as we were starting with the rebozo). She found and sent us information on questions that we asked during the prenatal visits. She also came to our house for a postpartum visit, brought food, massaged my back (sore from breastfeeding and carrying the baby around all the time), and debriefed the birth and how things were going since. She has a lot of experience with natural childbirth and was very knowledgeable and reassuring. She is soft-spoken and unassuming. We are thankful to have been able to have her with us for this birth.
