Testimonial for Tina Overton

We hired Tina for the birth of our third baby. My first baby was an induced, medicated, vaginal birth. My second was a completely natural vaginal birth. You'd think by baby number 3 we'd be ready to tackle childbirth as seasoned pros... Not the case!

Tina is a great person all around. She is very easy to talk to and even after meeting with her a few times it was like chatting with an old friend. She has such a gentle approach. She helped us make goals for our birth and helped us keep the birth on track in that direction.

In early labor she had me walking up and down stairs to help the baby descend. Let me tell you, I was thrilled to hear that idea but so glad later that she suggested it! I could tell it helped the baby drop, my labor picked up, I was energized and motivated. She stood with me on the stairs and we chatted the steps away.

Once labor got more intense, she was by my side helping me to find ways to stay comfortable. She knew what to say and when to say it. At one point during labor I glanced over and she wasn't there. I had a small panic attack to which my husband assured me she just took a quick bathroom break! Her presence was so calming and reassuring to me.

Another reason I hired Tina was extra eyes. She has been to so many births and has so much experience childbirth experience. I knew she would speak up if she was concerned for my health or the baby.

All of my childbirth experiences were very different but my natural childbirth with Tina was by far one of the most amazing and rewarding experiences of my life. She helped me stay in control, manage the pain, keep labor going, and birth a healthy 9.5 pound baby naturally!

I have the ability to birth a baby without a doula, but I know that if baby #4 is in our future, Tina will be one of the first people to hear the good news! We couldn't imagine another birthing experience without her! Many thanks and much love to you Tina!
