At every step of the way, as I made decisions for myself and my baby, she provided me with all the information and research needed to make the most informed choice, and she never questioned or pressured me to do anything other than what my instincts told me. Truly, she was the perfect doula for my pregnancy and delivery.Katie C.
Tara respected my individual choices and encouraged me to fully take on my new role. Tara was very respectful and always willing to help. She stayed through a very long and difficult delivery and never seemed to give up or take any shortcuts. My husband and I learned how to help in the process too, which was very empowering.Melissa A.
