Testimonial for Tina Overton

I was initially skeptical at my wife's desire to have a natural childbirth.  However I agreed to take Bradley classes because I wanted to be supportive.  We took classes with Tina, and I am glad we did.  As first time parents, Tina helped us to understand the birth process and what to expect during natural labor.  We were so impressed with her that we decided to hire her as our doula.  My wife loved her OB but he only delivered in a hospital and we thought it would be good to have a doula on our side as we braved a natural childbirth in a hospital setting.  I thought I was pretty well prepared as a labor coach after taking the classes.  However, I admit in the heat of the moment, I wasn't as on top of it as I could have been.  Little things like making sure my wife was hydrated slipped my mind.  Tina did a phenomenal job of stepping in where help was needed without having to say a word.  Her experience and knowledge helped us to stay calm and focused through the entire process.

We had a wonderful natural birth experience although we were a little put off by all of the red tape and procedures that followed a hospital birth.  When we found out we were expecting our second child we decided to go to a birth center.  We hired Tina as our doula and it was reassuring to have her with us again even though we had switched birthing practices.  A couple of weeks prior to our second child being born, my wife went through false labor and Tina was right there to help her navigate through what was going on.  When real labor hit, my wife was feeling a little discouraged questioning if it was real.  However, Tina was able to use her experience to encourage her in ways that I could not have done alone.  Shortly after we began working seamlessly as team and had a beautiful birth experience.  If we are blessed with another child I will not hesitate to have Tina on our team again!
