Testimonial for Tahira Ali, Student Midwife, CLE, CD

Tahira has such a grounded, calming presence which we knew we’d need for this vulnerable time as first time parents, as well as an assertive confidence that assured us she’d advocate for us in the hospital. At every prenatal and postpartum visit she went above and beyond, addressing our concerns and questions with a wealth of knowledge, encouragement and support, never seeming rushed or distracted. She became like a therapist for my husband and I, allowing us to express our fears without judgment and assuring us that we’d be okay. She made me herbal teas, tinctures, scar healing ointment and the best postpartum soup! I believe her placenta encapsulation aided in my recovery. Tahira was always quick to respond to questions about pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding, newborn care and postpartum and consistently provided comprehensive tips and resources. Our birth experience was a week-long hospital marathon that started with a gentle induction (which Tahira helped me advocate for, instead of a rushed water-breaking) and ended in a c-section. Toughest week of my life and Tahira was there at every up and down helping us navigate the entire process. She made us feel heard and empowered even when labor wasn’t going as smoothly as we’d hoped. She interfaced with all of the doctors and nurses, advocating for our birth wishes, clearing out any negative energy, and helping us make informed choices about moving forward in many confusing, difficult moments. Our baby was brought into this world with calmness, strength and love, and so much of that has to do with Tahira’s guidance and presence. Our roles as married partners and parents have been strengthened by her wisdom and offerings. You can tell she loves being a birth worker and was destined to do this unpredictable, demanding work. We are eternally grateful for all of the genuine kindness, care and compassion she poured into our family. We cannot recommend her enough!
