Testimonial for Tina Overton

I found Tina after my first birth experience, which was traumatic and ended in unnecessary cesarean. I was a young mom who had not grasped the concept that I may not be as strong as I had imagined during labor, and the doctor might not have my best interest at heart - a realization that set in after a 12 hour induction with a doctor who told me that "not every one was made to give birth vaginally" by phone, not even face to face. After that experience, I decided that I wanted to change the things I had control of with my next child. I searched for alternative birth education, birthing methods and facilities, and doulas, and found Tina.

Tina was a calm, wise, easy going person who made me feel more comfortable about my body and the birth of my child through her Bradley classes and through simple conversation. She welcomed a group of parents into her own home, made us feel welcome, and taught us the things that we'd need to feel more prepared and less at the mercy of medical staff and policies. With her help and support, I found the Baltimore Birth Center, midwives who treated me as an individual woman and a mother, and had Tina as my amazing doula during a four day prodronal labor and wonderful, peaceful VBAC waterbirth. I could not have had a better experience, and I credit much of it to Tina. I have had 3 successful VBAC's because of what I learned from her.

She has worked with masters in the childbirth field, and developed a respect and understanding of a woman's body and how different each labor can be. She has the tools and experience to help anyone arrive at a safe, healthy conclusion in any situation. I would recommend her to any woman who needs a doula with quiet strength, humor and over a decade of experience with families that trust her to help bring their children into the world.
