"Working with Tia was a pleasant experience for both and my wife and I. Having our first baby we didn’t know exactly what to expect but Tia was able to support us and offer educated answers to many of our questions. Working with Tia as a doula was a very positive experience as a first time father, Tia never over stepped any boundaries with us or any of the professional health staff yet she was always able to ensure our best interests were taken care of. I can’t say enough good things about how beneficial it was to have a doula available to be there to support us throughout the special event. Tia was super friendly, fun, kind, knowledgeable and will be a recommendation to all of our friends and family. Thank you Tia! "

" I cannot begin to explain how vital Tia was to our birthing process. I am so grateful for her experience as a doula. Tia was gentle, calming and confident in assisting not only me through the labor experience but was really great in supporting my husband as well.
I have always believed in the importance of natural birth but due to some unforeseeable circumstances after a long 28 hour labor I was informed I would have to have a cesarean. I began to panic as the medical team threw scrubs at my husband. Tia stepped in and remained at my side while he was preparing and was fantastic. She explained what was happening and was able to calm me down.
Tia absolutely met all of my expectations, and then some. My labour was lengthy and my delivery was not how I had anticipated it to go but Tia helped me to utilize coping skills and coached my husband through my contractions providing suggestions for the best ways to support me. Tia was a great support for my husband, kept him company, explained processes and provided a wonderful support during what was a long and tedious delivery. I realized the importance a doula can have not only for myself but for my husband too. "
