Testimonial for Tia Dowling-Ketant, CD, CLC

We first met Tia at a workshop she gave at Carriage House Birth on finding a Doula. We decided to choose Tia after interviewing several excellent candidates becuase of her experience working with a variety of families and birthing situations, and her oppenness to listening to who we were, and what we wanted. 

Tia was wonderful and supportive throughout our entire process. When we found out that our baby was in a breech position she helped us with suggestions and guidance on turning the baby and she helped us navigate the emotions of preparing for a c-section. We in fact did delivery via c-section, and Tia met us at the hospital shortly after delivery. Because she was not allowed in the operating room she added an extra post-partum visit.

Tia gave us some invaluable guidance on breastfeeding and self care and made us feel supported and like we were perfectly capable of handling this awesome new responsibility. Most importantly, during the first post-partum visit she advised my wife to call her doctor immediately when she complained of discomfort in her chest and shortness of breath. It turned out my wife had a pulmonary embolism and needed immediate medical care. We are so thankful that the embolism was caught so quickly, and to have gotten the medical attention we got, and we wouldn't have sought it out had Tia not pushed us to do so.

Tia is an extremely knowledgable, empathetic doula who will work with her clients to guide them through the birthing process in the way they want to be guided. We always felt listened to, and we always felt like the positive aspects of our situation were highlighted for us to reflect on. 

We highly recommend Tia for any expecting parents looking for extra support and guidance through all of the stages of childbirth.
