Teen Mom Doula Support
Tamara has been passionate about helping teenagers for many years as she knows the transition from child to adulthood is not an easy time. Teens are often misunderstood as many expect them to act like adults without having had the experience that comes with being one. Tamara has been actively volunteering with youth groups for the last 15 years across Cincinnati and Dayton being a mentor, friend and confident for hundreds of teens during this time.
This phase in a teenager's life is difficult enough without adding the stress of becoming a parent. Tamara’s goal is to help make life a little easier and give them the support they need during their pregnancy, labor and postpartum.
Tamara is dedicated to supporting up to ten teen moms per year with free birth doula services so they may have the support they need through the life changing experiences that come with pregnancy and birth. Tamara will provide all the same services that are included in her birth doula package.
- on the big day: Whether your labor is 1 hour or 35 hours; Tamara is there. Tamara will stay until after you are in your recovery room which is generally 1-2 hours post birth even helping to bring your stuff from one room to another as you transition from a birth suite to a postpartum room.
- with you at your home to see how everyone is doing post birth. This visit usually lasts an hour or longer based on what your needs are. Tamara is here to help you with whatever you might need - hold the baby, let you take a brief nap or shower, help switch a load in the laundry or just sit and talk. Since Tamara never goes anywhere empty handed, she comes with a homecooked meal to give you the night off from cooking or having to order another meal from the drive thru.
