Testimonial for Tina Overton

When I became pregnant, I knew I wanted a doula.  I felt nervous for what was to come and knew I'd need support.  Whenever I asked someone in town who they recommended as a doula, Tina's name always came up.  I'm so grateful we hired her and had her by our side.  We started by taking her Bradley Birth class.   I'm someone who likes information, so blindly walking into the birth wasn't an option.  Her class really helped us understand the birthing process, our options, and how to help ourselves get the best experience possible.  Her class also helped my husband prepare for his role, which made him feel informed and useful on thie big day and made me feel better supported.

When the day arrived, Tina made herself available to us as we needed her.  She has a very calm, reassuring manner.  She helped me be comfortable through early labor and to gague when it was time to head to the hospital.  Once there, it became clear how important it was to have her there.  The hospital threw some major curve balls at us.  With Tina there, we felt supported, informed and able to navigate the unexpected situations.  As a result, I think we ended up with a much better birth experience than what it could have possibly been.  She was also great at helping me to be more comfortable, to keep my labor moving, and also to keep up morale!

I would recommend Tina to anyone in a heartbeat.  With a simple labor, she'll be a calming, caring presence.  With more complicated situations (as we had), she will support you and help you navigate the situation to have the birth you want.  If we have another child, we will absolutely hire her again!!
