I had the pleasure of working with Life Stages Doula for my second pregnancy and Tatwona was wonderful. I’ve had the pleasure of knowing her on a somewhat personal level and I appreciated that it didn’t interfere on a business level. In fact I feel like it added to her excitement in my pregnancy. Sometimes I felt she was more excited than I was (not that I wasn’t excited) especially as I came closer to the finish line. Any questions I had she was sure to answer or find the answer to give to me. She sent videos of exercises suggested to help with any pain or discomfort. She made sure to check in with me periodically throughout the pregnancy not just when I had appointments. She also helped me flush out which questions to ask my OBs to make sure I was receiving adequate care that was in accordance with my birthing plan. I never felt alone and I always felt supported. Though I was nervous I felt prepared. Even down to laboring in my house and bathtub when we all thought I was having Braxton Hicks. She was just a text or phone call away and she answered every time, or reached out to me if she felt too much time had passed and she didn’t hear from me. Although my birthing plan didn’t happen how I wanted this time she was very supportive and came and checked on me after I delivered. She even sat with me for a bit just to give me some company since I couldn’t have family or friends visit. I would definitely recommend Life Stages Doula and will use them in the future if need be.
I have been a client of Tatwona's for over 7 years! She was my doula with both of my pregnancies. She was there for every appointment whether virtually or in person. When it came time for me to give birth, she made sure to advocate for me with doctors and nurses to ensure that I am getting quality care and that my birth plans were being followed. She was very helpful even after the birth of my children, making sure to check on us and coming to visit to check on my mental health and emotional state. She was more than a doula, she fought for me, took care of me, and continues even now to be present and check on us.
I chose Tatwona to encapsulate my placenta after giving birth at the hospital. She was very sweet and very involved. She was a pleasure to work with and made sure to check in with me periodically throughout the process. When it came time to encapsulate my placenta, the process was very quick. I received my capsules and other products within 2-3 days. I really recommend Life Stages Doula for encapsulation services.
My experience with Life Stage Doula for placenta encapsulation was fantastic. The entire process was thorough and professional. Our interactions felt personal and special and I’d recommend to anyone. I was very pleased with the final product and the attention put into special touches. Thank you!
