As a first-time father who had no clue what he was in for, Tanisha was nothing short of a godsend. From our first phone call with Tanisha, to the time she arrived at our apartment at 3 AM when my wife was in labor, to the time the doctors handed over our bundle of joy, Tanisha was the support system we desperately needed. She was a wealth of knowledge when it came to the labor and delivery process, and was prepared for any curve ball thrown our way. If and when we decide to have another child, Tanisha will be there.

Tanisha is an incredibly talented and knowledgeable doula. I am beyond thankful I found her during my pregnancy journey. I knew immediately when speaking with her that her breath of experience was exactly what I needed as a first-time mom. She was thoughtful in every interaction and gave us detailed advice at every turn. I can't ever imagine giving birth without her. She not only advocated for me but she reminded me of my own strength to help me stay on track with my birth plan. She was so mindful of my and my partner's needs at every step. If you are pregnant and have access to a doula she is it period. eat go-to font for titles, paragraphs & more. Summer 5/19/22
Wow, I am not sure where to begin, we had such a great experience and really connected with Tanisha. We were so incredibly lucky to find her and can't imagine our experience without her! She brought such warmth to her work with us. When we were looking for a birth doula, I felt so comfortable around Tanisha in our first conversation, that it felt like a fit immediately. I knew that we needed her calming presence and infinite knowledge and guidance to help us navigate everything. When she arrived at our initial meeting, she had a folder of helpful information she gave to me, and it was actually through Tanisha that we found our amazing doctors whom we wouldn't have otherwise found. I appreciated this knowledge sharing at our first meeting so much as there was just a sense that Tanisha truly cared about her clients and wanted to help right away. We did a virtual birth experience because of the pandemic, but it was as if Tanisha was there in person with how much support we felt - Tanisha was there on video to help us, go through breathing exercises with me, reassure us, advocate for us, and there was never any judgment, truly only positive energy and help. We are eternally grateful to her and hope to have Tanisha by our side for our next birth! Thank you, Tanisha!!! Caitlin Edsall 5/21/21
Working with Tanisha was the best decision I could have made for my pregnancy, delivery and postpartum recovery. When I became pregnant, I felt strongly about having an unmedicated birth and that I wanted to work with a doula to help me achieve it. I researched a number of doulas, but after my first call with Tanisha I knew she was the one. She was incredibly knowledgeable and listened intently to my concerns and questions.
In our conversations leading up to my birth, Tanisha educated my husband and me, put us at ease, and continued to address our questions with respect and care -- even the most trivial ones. Because of these meetings, I felt informed, prepared, and never nervous.
When I was in early labor, Tanisha kept a close check on me. When it got tough, she helped me through every contraction. And when it was time to go to the hospital, Tanisha kept us calm, cool and collected. At the hospital, she respected the staff and doctors but seemed to keep the entire room under control. She coached me through the most difficult parts of labor and pushing while keeping a close eye on the baby's health. She also made sure my husband was involved -- together, they formed my support squad. After delivery, Tanisha was by my side to guide me through breastfeeding and to make sure I was properly cared for. When she left the hospital, the impressed doctor and nurses even asked, "where did you find her?"
During Tanisha's postpartum visit to my home, she offered sage advice when it came to getting my baby to sleep and eat better. For us new parents, this was invaluable. A couple of weeks later when I experienced a health issue, she was the first person I contacted.
If and when I decide to have another child, Tanisha will my first call. Without her by my side, I would not have had such a positive birth and postpartum experience. In a way, I feel like she is my fairy godmother -- we will be forever grateful for her.
