Tia was incredibly helpful, professional, and kind to work with. Of all the doulas I interviewed, I was incredibly impressed by Tia's level of professionalism. She came to our in person meeting with a host of helpful birth resources, had a website with a host of information, and was prepared to demonstrate and discuss a host of contraction easing techniques. During my labor she was incredibly helpful and calming influence. She was incredibly supportive of my birth choices and helped me advocate for the type of birth experience I wanted. Even when it became clear that I needed to have an emergency c section for the health of my baby, she helped facilitate space and a calming presence and environment for me to come to and accept my decision rather than being rushed into anything by hospital staff. After the birth, she stayed with my husband and I until we were settled and felt comfortable. Post partum she continued to follow up and came by my house to see how I was adjusting and how breastfeeding was going. I would definitely recommend her to anyone.
