Testimonial for Tia Dowling-Ketant, CD, CLC

As an expecting person in NYC who wants to have a low intervention birth, I quickly realized there are very few options available outside of a traditional hospital birth. The system seemed to put every obstacle in my way, from a lack of birthing centers, the high cost of a home birth, to a shortage of midwives. It felt like having the birth I wanted was out of my control and ultimately impossible...until I met Tia.

The moment I met Tia I felt so comfortable,  and rediscovered hope in terms of my birthing plan. Her wealth of knowledge filled me with confidence and her great sense of humor immediately put me at ease. Despite her expertise (i.e knowing better than me), Tia never judged or tried to sway my decisions - she supported me 100% rolled with every punch as my birth plan was constantly changing.

She was also a huge source of support and reassurance for my husband who had different needs than my own. She was his doula as much as she was mine. 

Ultimately I had a great birthing experience and I owe that in no small part to Tia who was there to provide comfort, guidance, hold my hand, remind me to breath, help me advocate for myself and make me laugh. We couldn't have done it without her. 

Tia is no longer just my doula, but my lifelong friend.
