Testimonial for Tia Dowling-Ketant, CD, CLC

I was just holding my son and feeling so much gratitude for Tia in helping us bring him into the world. She is an incredible doula. She expertly prepared and supported my partner and I through birth. During the prenatal sessions, she used educational tools and games to teach us about pregnancy and childbirth. Tia also helped us practice comfort techniques, and talk through scenarios and our birth preferences. She was always available for questions and support via text/phone, and checked in regularly to get updates after doctors appointments, and make sure we were getting everything we needed prepared. She also recommended different techniques to prepare for labor.

 

I went into active labor fairly quickly and Tia arrived to provide support during painful contractions and as labor progressed. I really can't imagine going through that without her - she was such a calm, guiding presence for both myself and my partner. Whatever anxieties I had about giving birth and going to the hospital were calmed knowing we had Tia on our side to help advocate for us and ensure our needs were met and our voices were heard. When I faced hesitation during pushing, she helped calm me and helped me feel confident that I could do it. She also has a great sense of humor and helped me feel so at ease in the most intense moments. She worked so well with our midwife, my partner, and the nurse, I just felt like I had the best team lifting me up and welcoming our son into the world. I feel so lucky and grateful that I am able to look back on my birth as such an incredible experience, and I know that Tia helped that happen.

When I faced postpartum complications and breastfeeding challenges, Tia was there to make referrals and make sure I got all of the support I could possibly need during a difficult time. Her years of experience and expertise were apparent throughout the time she supported us. I 100% absolutely recommend her.
