Testimonial for Tia Dowling-Ketant, CD, CLC

As a first time mom I was very nervous about giving birth and breastfeeding. Because of this I decided to hire a doula to guide me through the process. Hiring Tia was the best decision I made. I had a very long delivery — 35 hours. Tia was there for me the entire time. She provided physical, mental and emotional support. As a result, my birth was safe, smooth and not a C section (which I really did not want). She encouraged me to be vocal about my needs and wants with the hospital staff and not give in to pressure to have my water broken or take pitocin. It’s not that Tia is anti any of these things, but she knew from talking to me throughout my pregnancy that I really did not want them. Breastfeeding was tough, but Tia encouraged me to keep at it and offered helpful advice, tips etc. I ended up initially supplementing with formula and then finally exclusively pumping so my baby was 100% on breastmilk. Tia was supportive of all of my decisions. She is not judgmental at all — a phenomal kind-hearted doula!!
