Testimonial for Candice Tizzard Photographer & Doula

I have known Candice a very long time. I was so happy for her when she decided to pursue doula work, she has a tremendous passion for moms and babies, it was the perfect choice for her. In my most recent pregnancy, my husband and I received a devastating diagnosis, our baby had anencephaly, a fatal neural tube disorder. We were devastated, and given all the options and information, we chose to have an early induction at 22 weeks. I asked Candice if she'd like to be there as a doula for me, this would be the first time I ever had a natural birth (my two previous were c-sections). Despite knowing our baby was going to die, or possibly be stillborn, Candice maintained the utmost professionalism during my labor, helping me with the contractions (misoprostal, the medication they give you to induce labor early, has a habit of causing stacked contractions, there was about 2 hours where I was in a solid contraction, very little respite between them). After my son was born, Candice offered her services as a birth photographer as well, taking pictures during the precious few minutes we had with him alive, and after his death as well. Though it was an incredibly tragic and emotional time for us all, Candice was a wonderful support to myself and my husband, and though my situation was a bit unique, I would not hesitate to recommend her, both as a doula and photographer, to anyone looking for some great knowledgable birth support. I would love to have her come to my next birth, hopefully with a much happier outcome.
