Testimonial for Tina Overton

I hired Tina because I knew I wanted a doula to try to help me have labor naturally. Originally I found her because she conducted Bradley method classes. As I talked to different people in my circle of care, I heard only good things about her from those who worked with her. As I neared the end of my pregnancy, issues surfaced about the possible large size of the baby. I was concerned as my care providers were mentioning c section, something I really didn’t want unless truly necessary. Tina kindly did research for me about likelihood of shoulder distocia with larger babies. Her research helped me move forward with decision to try vaginally. When the big day came at 2 am on a Friday morning, she was readily available by text and helped me through beginning stages of labor. The labor was intense and long. 35 hours total of back labor. A lot of it is foggy to me now, but I know that each person in that hospital room that day was essential for me to make it through it. Especially Tina. She would suggest new positions to try, ideas for pain management and just was there emotionally and physically to help. When I finally had to get an epidural at 7 cm with no change in sight after 24 hours of back labor, she supported me in that decision. Even though I went into it wanting a fully natural birth, I was humbled by the experience and realized that medicine is here to help us when our bodies and minds can’t do it anymore. After the vaginal birth, she checked up on me regularly as there were issues with my baby. He had to be taken to the Nicu for over a week. Her care and concern were comforting to me. She’s a gem. Definitely worth every cent and more of her price. I would hire her again if we had another one. Truly an intelligent, hard working, level headed, compassionate person that is a model of what a doula should be.
