Testimonial for Tia Dowling-Ketant, CD, CLC

We were a little late in searching for a doula. I was already in my 3rd trimester when we began the search. After doing some research & taking some courses I knew that I wanted a very experienced doula to help with hypnobirthing & keeping my birth as natural as possible.

We interviewed several doulas of varying experience, and Tia was the last of the five we interviewed. Out of all of them, Tia stood out not just as a doula with A LOT of experience + knowledge/training in Hypnobirthing, but it was her sense of humor that we feel in love with. She made us laugh in the interview, and we knew that we wanted that kind of energy with us through the birth.

Well we couldn't have made a better decision! I had my dream birth, everything went well. I labored at home with Tia & my husband, and when it was time to go to the hospital my stellar at-home birth team was coupled with my favorite OB and an outstanding nurse.

I will never forget the moment when the labor had stalled, and Tia thought that maybe my little guy's chin was up making it difficult to spiral down the birth canal. Tia alerted the nurse, and the nurse supported her theory and suggested we try the sea horse position. Well, after putting me in the sea horse position (on both sides) for some time, my labor was back on track. 

But it wasn't just me who Tia supported, she did an excellent job at supporting my husband & working together as a team. 

There's so much to love about Tia; just take a look at her instagram and you'll see her dedication to being a doula, as well as her fun-loving spirit. Tia is the kid of person you want to be forever friends with, she's just that lovely.
