Tami was exactly what we needed! We planned to do a natural, unmedicated birth with both of our first 2 children, and just weren't quite as successful as we'd hoped! I have really long labors, and I lasted about 27 hours with my last labor but then I just didn't know what to do, and couldn't cope with the pain like I'd hoped. With Tami, I did what she told me beforehad to practice and prepare, and with her throughout the actual labor I felt completely empowered! I KNEW I could do it this time, but not only that I knew HOW to do it. I always knew I could do it but I didn't quite have the tools to manage the pain and length of my labors.
We are so greatful we had Tami there to help us make decisions, to help take the load and pressure off of my husband, and to literally help hold me up during those intense transition contractions. She knew what to say and what to do, and we felt so comfortable with her.
I highly recommend her for anyone looking for an experienced Doula!
Tami came on a regular basis during my pregnancy to help me prepare for the birth I envisioned. When I was finally in labor she came to my house, then walked stores, then headed to the hospital with us. Having her present for the the birth gave me confidence. Tami knew my birth plan and was able to work with my husband and mother to help make that dream possible. She was able to anticipate my needs and provided the support needed during active labor. She was loving and calm during the whole process. Tami made my dream of a hypnobirth become reality!
Hiring Tami was one of the best decisions my husband and I made for the birth of our son. Her calm presence throughout labor was incredibly reassuring to both my husband and myself. For almost 24 hours (including a 1 am wake up call!), Tami was working tirelessly with us to bring our son into the world. She supported me with massage, counter pressure, breathing techniques, encouraging words, etc. during contractions, and with conversation, food and water, and whatever else I needed in between. Tami was also a wonderful help to my husband by suggesting tools we learned in our birth class, and allowing him to take breaks when he needed them. We both appreciated the way Tami was intimately involved throughout the entire birthing process, and yet did not intrude on our own intimacy in those sacred hours — that is truly a gift and not many people have it! We could not possibly recommend Tami highly enough and we would love to have her attend the births of our future children as well. She is an amazing doula!
