Bereavement Doula

Last year, I spent the weekend in northern Ohio at a training workshop.  The training was not something that I wanted to do, as I knew it would be highly emotional.   But I knew it was something that I HAD to do.   Birth is not routine, every birth is different and not all births have the outcome that any one wants.    The seminar was a training on how to be a Bereavement Doula.   A doula for families dealing with the loss, whether unexpected or planned, or their baby.

Testimonial: Angie's Birth

Tamara is a wonderful person and doula! She met with my husband and I twice before our daughter's birth to discuss what to expect and the birth experience we hoped to have. She's a great listener and caring person! She went above and beyond made a birth position handout for us in the event she wasn't able to make it for the birth (due to a scheduled vacation the week before our due date)!
