Testimonial for Tina Overton

I cannot be more grateful for the role that Tina played in my birth experience. 

I had a stressful first pregnancy, and my delivery resulted in a healthy mom and baby, but was not the experience I had planned or desired - despite the efforts of my first doula. I chose Tina to be my doula for my second child. Tina could not have been kinder, more accomodating, or more knowledgeable as she guided us through our second pregnancy and childbirth. She did 2 one-on-one sessions with my husband and I to discuss my goals for my delivery, my concerns, and comfort measures for my labor. She even mapped out a plan in our home that we could use to maximize our space during my labor. When I developed viral gastroenteritis at 39 weeks, precipitating what turned out to be false labor, she worked with me through the discomfort and uncertainty both over the phone and in person. When labor finally arrived naturally, she was by my side throughout with suggestions, as well as physical, emotional, and psychological support. Furthermore, she was able to guide my husband so that he could be the best support person he could be. When I felt I couldn't labor naturally any more, it was her certainty in my ability to cope, and her confidence in my labor progression that allowed me to eventually deliver my son without any medical interventions. My unmedicated delivery was the most overwhelming, empowering, and incredible experience of my life, and it would not have been possible without her guidance and expertise. I could not be more grateful to have this incredible woman's help at this incredibly stressful time - made even more so by the fact that my son was delivered in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

Thank you for everything Tina!
