Testimonial for Tina Overton

Attending Bradley classes with Tina was the best decision my husband and I EVER made. EVER. Tina is a reservoir of pertinent and supported information regarding all aspects of pregnancy and birth. And, what information she didn’t know, she knew how to find. She made me feel confident, which allowed me to get excited about my birth without all the worry I had been having.
We were still concerned about the long drive to the closest birthing center, and hoped to have a home birth. After a few awkward interviews with midwives, I was feeling particularly frustrated, and loudly sighed, “UGH! Tina, why can’t you just come over and deliver our baby for us?” “I can!” she said. And, finally all was right with the world. (Tina is so humble, and so careful not to solicit during her classes; she had never even mentioned to us she could do so.) We immediately secured her services.
When I went into labor, Tina came over and swiftly took control. I had a difficult time because my son was head down, but not entirely turned to face my back, which was reducing the pressure on my cervix. I had to push for three hours, while Tina held my cervix out of the way for me, which she did readily and without concern. She continuously encouraged me and let me know what progress I was making. Tina made me feel strong and believe in myself, allowing me to persevere. Because of the long labor, our son needed some extra encouragement after he was born, and she worked quickly to ensure he perked right up, all the while remaining calm and in control.
Our birth was as beautiful and personal as we had hoped, thanks to Tina. My husband was able to support me without worrying, because we were in such good hands. Thanks to Tina, our little guy had a very sweet, calm, and natural entrance to our lives, in our very own home. We will never forget what she did for us, and be forever grateful for the love and strength she brought to the birth of our son.
