I cannot recommend Tiffany enough! From the very beginning, she was a radiant source of kindness and empathy. A true Pisces, her intuition and compassion shone through in everything she did. Before labor, she went above and beyond. She patiently answered all my questions, no matter how small, and made sure we felt completely prepared. When labor finally arrived very early in the am, Tiffany was there instantly, with a radiant smile on her face. Calm and collected, she began massaging my back and offered unwavering support to my husband throughout the entire experience. Even after delivery, her care continued. She checked in on us and went the extra mile by sending her doula friend to visit when I was readmitted due to preeclampsia. That kind of dedication is truly exceptional. Anyone who has the pleasure of working with Tiffany is beyond lucky. She's an incredible doula, an incredible mother herself, and just an amazing person to know.

I'm not sure I can accurately capture with words the incredible experience we were afforded working with Tiffany as our birthing doula. Leaving the hospital after the birth of our daughter my husband and I were in complete awe of what we had just witnessed. We cannot imagine her not being there with us. She made every step of the process easier, lighter, and more supported. Not only did she advocate for me in the most important ways when it absolutely mattered the most but she was the most calming presence from check in at triage through delivery. As first time parents, not a single decision we made along the way was as important and valuable as deciding to have her as our doula. We joke that the only mistake we made was not booking her sooner when she was available for postpartum care. Tiffany is a caring, resourceful, attentive, proactive, supportive advocate that we cannot recommend more highly. It truly felt like we had family with us and we can never thank her enough for all she did.

Tiffany was our postpartum doula in the first couple months postpartum and did SO much to help us rest and recover! I had a challenging birth, so had a significant recovery, and Tiffany's support was really crucial to be able to rest.

She started supporting us on overnights the week after we got home from the hospital, so was the first person we trusted with our baby, yet we were so confident stepping away to sleep since she is such an expert. Beyond that, she's very empathetic and understanding. Since we were first time parents, she provided so much guidance related to sleep and feeding, and was there to answer all sorts of questions - from when to adjust nipple flow to swaddle recommendations and more. I really wanted a doula that supported our individual family choices and Tiffany did that so well, especially since I chose to formula feed. She's great at providing non-judgmental support.

Since Tiffany is also a birth doula, she provided a lot of emotional support as I processed my birth experience too! It was challenging birth, so my husband and I also benefited from having some time together (without the baby!) to process and rest. We'd always feel so relieved when Tiffany arrived, and would share some laughs with her about my son's latest antics before going to sleep. We felt really comfortable with her in our home - and she was great with our animals!

We really debated hiring a postpartum doula, since it is a significant expense and we weren't sure what our needs would be postpartum, but it was SUCH an important investment. I'm especially glad we proactively planned for it, so that we were able to go into the birth/postpartum knowing we planned for support, and also find someone that aligned with our needs and values.

I highly recommend Tiffany for any doula services. We worked with her for labor and delivery and one postpartum visit. As a first time mom, our main goal in hiring a doula was to have someone by our side who could help educate us about the labor & delivey process in order for us to be able to advocate for ourselves during L&D. Tiffany 100% met all of my expectations and beyond. She wants her clients to be able to have the L&D experience that THEY want. She supports you in any decisions that you want to make. What we loved most about having her in L&D room was when there was a decision that we had to make, she helped talk it through with us so that we felt empowered to move forward in the way that was best for us. We had the best labor and delivery experience and we attribute this to having Tiffany by our side. Tiffany is kind, a great listener, has a calming presence, and is super knowledable. We delivered at Northwestern Prentice and we loved that Tiffany has alot of experience with clients delivering here. If you are looking for a doula for labor & delivery (or even postpartum) I higly recommend working wtih her! You will love your experience!

Tiffany was a phenomenal support from the last part of pregnancy through the first few weeks of new motherhood.

I hired her as a labor support for my planned home birth but when I ended up needing a hospital induction she came through and supported me through writing up a hospital birth plan and helping me make informed decisions about my care. I was able to manage the unexpected changes to my plan and a long labor with her hand-on support and compassionate guidance.

Her knowledge, encouragement, and creativity got me through the unexpected and helped me to have a positive birth experience.

10/10 would recommend!

I cannot express how valuable Tiffany's time, energy, and expertise was to my little family in the 3 post-partum months. We are first time parents and our twins were born 4 weeks ahead of schedule. From that first week, we knew Tiffany was wonderful. Even though she had not yet expected to start with us, she worked to move her schedule around to provide the unexpected support. She pretty much seamlessly integrated with us, and had an empathetic touch that worked well both for my extroversion and my husband's introversion. She took patient, loving care of both of our girls. We looked forward to her twice weekly overnights as if it were Christmas. She also had lots of wonderful information to share about both the girls and my breastfeeding, could help us know what to expect development-wise, and would follow up on the days she wasn't with us as well. She was conscientious, timely, knowledgeable, caring, gentle, and fun. Anyone who gets to work with her is very lucky.

Postpartum Doula Review: We were connected with Tiffany through a reference from my labor and delivery doula. I felt Tiffany was a lifesaver at a crucial time for our family as my husband and I navigated life with our newborn. She brought a calm and competent aura with her each time she came over to take care of the baby. She also took care of our whole family by helping make us nutritious healthy + meals to eat and straightening up where needed. What I most appreciated about Tiffany was she generally intuited the baby/our needs before we had to ask. She was always reliable and demonstrated utmost professionalism and integrity. Highly recommend!!

Tiffany was an amazing support to me during my birth and postpartum time.  She is extremely well-read and knowledgeable about every part of birth, breastfeeding, and the many small options that a mother has to weed through.  Every time I had a question, Tiffany had read up on the subject and had lots of helpful options and tips for me.  Having her to bounce my thoughts off of was extremely valuable, especially as I made decisions at the beginning of my unplanned induction.  And somehow, I never felt like she was giving her own opinion; just helping me to make my own.  

Tiffany was also very wonderful postpartum, always sensitive to my moods and an easy part of the household, paying attention to my needs always.  It is very clear that she takes joy in caring for women as they move through the first days with their babies, and that she is passionate about creating the best experience for us.  Thank you Tiffany!!!

If you are looking for an amazing doula then Tiffany is the person for you. She made my birth such an amazing and positive experience. Her calm presence and voice really got me through the tough moments during labor. She went above and beyond to honor my birth wishes and did everything she could to help me set the room into the beautiful aesthetic that I envisioned (dim lighting, tea lights, mantra cards). She was also extremely knowledgeable about everything that was going on and helped my husband and I to understand the birthing and recovery process before in our prenatal meetings and during/after the birth. My husband also said she was a wonderful supporter for him and in moments where he needed a break Tiffany was there to step in and help. Tiffany will be a part of any future births I have. I cannot imagine going through labor without her!
