Testimonial for Tia Dowling-Ketant, CD, CLC

Knowledable. Empathetic. Courteous. Perceptive. Wise. Outright amazing. Without reservation, these are the words and phrases that describe Tia. She is the listening ear when you share a preference, and she is the voice that speaks up and advocates when others may not be listening. She is the person at your side when you don't know what you need or are unsure what is happening with your body.  

As first-time parents, the entire birth process was new to me and my husband. Tia was a phenomenal educator and guide through the process, teaching us in a style that enhanced our knowledge base while growing the commraderie between us. Her scenario-based learning was spot-on, and it gave us all the tools to ask informed questions and, frankly, to know what is acceptable and not acceptable behavior from medical practitioners.

Beyond training, Tia is as close to an angel as possible in the field. She labored with me at home and in the hospital, while coaching my husband along the way. It was amazing to have someone so knowledgable about birth at my side. Whenever I felt something new, she could explain it to me. She knew exactly how to deal with every change. She used her thoughtful methods to keep me and my husband calm during the process. She rarely slept, but her demeanor was as friendly and caring as we could have hoped for. And, when we ran into difficulties with hospital staff, Tia navigated us through unknown territory. 

Look, I could go on and on. But, it all comes down to this. In the most important moment of our lives, Tia not only treated us like family - she became family. She stayed by our sides through a relatively long labor process - laboring for days, praying with us when we beame emotional, hugging us when the process became strenuous, laughing with us to make the time pass, and overall, loving me, my husband, and our new child like only family could.
