Meet Tamara

Kankowski Family
The Kankowski Family

Tamara is happily married to her best friend, Jesse, and together they have 7 children. Her own personal birth experiences include a spontaneous birth with her first daughter, a scheduled vaginal delivery where she had to be induced, and a C-section for her full-term twin boys after 15 weeks of bed rest.

These experiences coupled with her philosphy that childbirth is a privilege led Tamara to become a doula. She wants to use her experience to give new moms evidence-based feedback about the many choices available. Tamara offers judgement-free information and support to empower mothers to make their own decisions in this sometimes overwhelming time of life.

In addition to her own family, Tamara cared for more than 80 children over 10 and a half years through her in-home daycare business. She was honored by the trust these families had in her and is excited to continue to share her gift of nurturing with mothers, no matter what stage of life they are in.
