Client Testimonials for Tanesha Gunn

Post a testimonial for Tanesha Gunn



My birth experience with Tanesha was amazing. This was my first pregnancy and from the very beginning she made me feel extremely comfortable. My goal was to have as natural of a child birth as possible. Tanesha worked with me during my pregnancy to tailor a birth plan that would fulfill my goal of a natural birth while also offering suggestions should I need any medical intervention. Tanesha was very responsive whenever I had any kind of questions or concerns (and I had a lot). When it came time to deliver, my midwife unfortunately had another woman laboring as well, so having Tanesha there the whole time especially in her absence was amazing. My son was initially positioned OP (back-to-back), which made my labor extremely painful. Tanesha helped me through various breathing techniques and positions to help make things as easy as possible. Although it was extremely difficult, I was able to get to 10 cm without the use of pain meds. I pushed for about 90 minutes. Tanesha was there helping me push the whole time and offered words of encouragement during contractions and helped me push in different positions. My baby eventually turned into a better position and I was able to have a succesful, unmedicated vaginal delivery. After delivery my midwife had to perform a repair, and Tanesha stayed with me to help my breastfeed while I was recovering. I was informed that my son would need blood sugar checks because I was a gestational diabetic. I wanted to stay away from formula if possible, so Tanesha stayed and helped me hand express until we knew the baby had a successful latch. My labor  was difficult, and having my partner there was amazing,  but I believe I was able to achieve my dream of a natural birth because I had Tanesha by my side. 10/10 would recommend. You will not be disappointed!! I will definitely be using her for my next pregnancy. 





I was fortunate to receive the services of Tanesha once we arrived at the Birth Center. Thank you for being the second-best part of our birthing process. The birth of our little Ava was the best part.

Tanesha was knowledgeable and empathetic. Both my pain and anxity were at an all-time high. Tanesha offered the most peaceful, supportive and practical techniques. She was extremely patient and focused on my comfort and safety.

After the birth, Tanesha assisted me with latching my baby to breastfeed. 

We are planning our second child and Tanesha is already a part of the birth plan.
