Testimonial for Tais Masala-Finale CD (PALS) CPD (NAPS)

Having Taís as our Doula for the birth of our first child was the best decision my husband and I made for ourselves and for our daughter. Towards the end of my pregnancy, the OBGYN team expressed concern that my daughter was getting too big to fit through the birth canal. I really believe it was by following Taís’s guidance to open my pelvis, “wiggle my toosh,” and keep moving during my pregnancy that I was ultimately able to avoid a C-section even after a long labor. As first time parents, my husband and I were nervous and unsure what to expect or even what questions to ask. As soon as we interviewed Taís, we were put at ease by her calm, reassuring demeanor and wonderful sense of humor. In preparing for the birth and during labor, we both appreciated that Taís is able to confidently provide guidance without ever making us feel like she was taking over. She made it clear from the beginning that the most important thing was for me to feel heard as the birthing parent and for my husband to feel like he had a meaningful supportive role—and that is exactly what happened. Having her in the hospital with us through a 30-hour labor gave us the support and stamina we needed to continue and stay optimistic. She brought snacks, was quick to jump in with different positions, massage techniques, and pain relief options, and even provided some much-needed laughs. When our daughter was born, we felt like she was as excited and relieved as we were, and I knew she would be a treasured part of our lives. During the postpartum visit, she helped us bathe our daughter for the first time and it felt like having an old friend in the house. We cannot say enough good things about her. She is truly a treasure!
