It is unfortunate that many people are unaware of the important role of a doula during pregnancy and postpartum because they dont get to experience incredible people like Tia. She was very resourceful throughout my entire pregnancy! From the first meeting we immediately clicked and she helped me to make informed decisions throughout my entire pregnancy. She also empowered my husband and I to feel in control of our process. She was always available to answer any questions I had or clarify any confusing information i read or received.
In the end, I did not have a vaginal birth but Tia was still very supportive and helpful. She massaged my hands prior to entering the operating room which helped to calm my nerves and she was there when I exited. She really helped me to have a successful c-section and to begin the process of breastfeeding early!
During postpartum, Tia provided even more resources to help me recover quickly! She visited me to make sure recovery was going well and that breastfeeding was successful. I am grateful I had the opportunity to work with her and highly recommend her.
