Hello, My name is Tanisha Evans-Marin CD,PCD(DONA). I am a native New Yorker. A mother, a wife and in my line of work I seek to empower women. I have three beautiful children - one daughter and two sons. I love being a mother and helping mothers in their new role. When I viewed my first birth, I was truly in awe of the experience. I have a true passion for what I do and even before I became a doula, I served a doula-like role to both family and friends dating back to 1997. I am the founder and owner of Just For You Doula.
While I did not have a doula for any of my birthing experiences (I had not heard of them at the time), I cannot help but imagine the added peace of mind that having one would have provided. The powerful realization of what a doula does and the role she can play in the birthing process eventually led me down the path towards becoming one. I have now been able to witness first-hand the difference it makes when a laboring mom has a doula.
I want to provide the best possible birth experience for the women I serve. My goal is to nurture, inform and provide a safe, loving space for women.
I am a Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator, hoping to normalize birth. I want to educate, empower and build confidence in my mamas and their ability to trust their bodies to birth their babies.
I am also a Certified Lactation Counselor. Having breastfed all three of my children, the youngest for two years exclusively, I feel the need to help new breastfeeding moms find their way in this breast is best world.
