Testimonial for Tina Overton

Let me start by saying that Tina is amazing!! My second and third birth experiences were fabulous because of Tina!! We had not used a doula for our first birth (a horrible experience). Induced unnecessarily with a bad midwife, 46 hours of pitocin and ending in a csection. We had completed a Bradley course, but felt alone and uncared for during labor.

Our second delivery, also induced, in July 2017, was a world of difference. We had hired a doula (Tina). She was supportive in the weeks leading up to birth and throughout the induction and labor. I was able to have an induced natural (no epidural) VBAC. It was 36 hours, but I felt much more safe and in control. Tina was great. She literally held the oxygen mask on my face for hours and hours. She helped talk me through contractions, helped me get it different positions and rubbed black pepper oil on my back to help with the pain. She gave my husband support and took care of me when he needed to eat or update our family.
For our third labor, we booked Tina right away. This labor happened on day 10 of the pandemic shutdown (March 2020). It was a super scary time as so much was unknown. I had countless conversations with Tina the few days leading up to my induction (I was terrified). Tina was flexible and accommodating. She helped me find peace so that I was ready. She ended up not being able to be at our birth (due to hospital restrictions), but she was on the phone with us for a majority of the time.  She knew exactly where I was in labor and when I was ready to push by the sounds that I was making. It was incredible. My third labor (also induced with Pitocin and a foli bulb this time) was also a successful natural VBAC (no epidural). Painful labor was only an hour and a half!!  Having Tina on the phone was invaluable. My husband and I highly recommend her! She was also helpful to be post pardum for my third baby, as I struggled with post pardum anxiety! Hire Tina! She's the best!!
