Testimonial for Tina Overton

Tina is an incredible doula. I primarily wanted a doula to help me achieve my unmedicated natural (hospital) birth goals and i can honestly say that Tina's support and guidance played a pivotal role in my success.

From the beginning she was available via text to answer questions I had as a FTM and i was encouraged to send her pictures/details, no matter how "gross or embarrassing". And when I had a few scares she was there to reassure me that everything would be fine but also suggested that i call my midwife to be safe. 

During the labor, she came over and provided tips that really made a difference and provided much needed relief. She was both an empowering and calming presence during the toughest times of my labor. As a FTM, I went into labor 8 days early and arrived at the hospital at 9cm dilated. I can truly say that Tina helped me achieve my birth goals. She was also there for some of the hardest days postpartum and provided needed encouragement and guidance for breastfeeding. Her tips were game-changing and helped my baby and I gain momentum and progress with latching and feeding. She even provided pediatrician recommendations which better aligned with our natural approach.

Tina also offers Bradly Method courses which we paid for separately. I had heard great things about Bradley Method so the fact that Tina was an instructor was an added bonus that other doulas lacked. Although I felt like the course was a bit repetitive and outdated, there were certainly things that benefited us during the labor and delivery. The weekly in-home classes also gave us the opportunity to bond with Tina so that when I went into labor, my husband and I felt totally comfortable with her in our home and at the hospital.

I would 100% recommend Tina as a doula. She was such a wonderful addition to my birth team and will be a lifelong family friend.
