Testimonial for Tina Overton

My SIL recommended taking Bradley classes to prepare us for the birth of our first baby.  We checked out the website and gave Tina a call.  She was just starting a new session so we signed up and started in April/May 2003.  It was all overwhelming information (being first time parents) but Tina was very knowledgable and passionate about what she was teaching.  About halfway into the classes she started talking about Doulas and their important role at birth.  At first, my husband was not sold having another person with us during such an intimate time.  We will have a midwife, she is all we will need.  By the end of our class, luckily, someone came around ??.  Tina and I became close during the Bradley classes and in the weeks leading up to Zachary's birth.

Zach's birth was a long one....as most first time births are.  Tina was my rock, John's rock, I don't know how I would have made it thru without her.  John was there supporting me emotionally and physically, Tina was there for me physically (love those hip sqeezes!), mentally and emotionally.  Never once did she give up on me when I was so ready to give up on myself.  Tina was very calm when she was with me.  That's what I remember most, especially when labor was at its most intense and I was beside myself with emotion and fear.  John was there yes.  But knowing that another woman, that had gone through this same process, was there with me was such a comfort.   She knew when to push me, when to let up, let me surrender, coach me through tough contractions.  My perfect out of hospital birth that I had been planning for months ended in a C-section after 20 hours of labor.  Tina was the best decision we made.  She also attended the birth of our second child Lauren,my VBAC baby,as well. Zach just turned 11.  I thought Tina knew a lot about birthing babies then,she has that much more experience now!
