We decided to hire a doula because of the birth experience we had with our first baby and because statistics show that people with birthing doulas have fewer medical interventions like C-sections, less chance of needing an epidural, greater chance of success with breastfeeding, less likely to have postpartum depression etc. After talking with Taba just for a few minutes on the phone I knew I had found the right doula for us. Buying Taba’s doula services for my wife was the best decision I made in a long time. She eased a lot of my wife’s anxieties during her pregnancy just by knowing she would be there for us. She gave us great relevant info when requested and catered to our needs. I wish we knew about her for our first baby.
My wife’s hope (and mine) was to have an epidural free birth with minimal intervention. Taba helped us achieve this goal. My wife had a lot less anxiety during this pregnancy and had success with an epidural free childbirth. Worth every penny.

I contacted Taba to inquire about Doula services about halfway through my pregnancy. We were in the middle of a move from GA to MD, we met shortly after we settled in and I was so happy to have found her. What I appreciated most about Taba is that I never felt pressured to do birth a certain way. She was there to support me 100% w/o judgement...which was perfect for me. I lacked confidence going into my birth that I would actually be able to follow through w/a natural unmedicated birth. Taba listened and heard all my concerns and always seemed to have the right words to put me at ease. I am happy to say that I was able to successful have an unmedicated birth but I don't think I would have been able to do it w/o her. She took the worry out of the equation for both me and my husband and allowed us to just focus on bringing our precious baby girl into the world. I really can't say enough about how wonderful our experience was w/Taba. And yes, she will make you laugh which is a wonderful thing to be able to laugh through your contractions :-). I'm so Blessed that Taba moved to Maryland I was able to meet her and have her at my side during our birth!!!

If doulas were rock stars, then Taba would be Mick Jagger! Sheâ??s kind and gentle, sheâ??s whip-smart, and will follow your birth plan to the letter. She is so generous with her knowledge, and shares information without judgment. If you want to co-sleep or not, sheâ??ll support you. If you want an epidural or not, sheâ??ll support you. Sheâ??ll answer the phone whenever you need her, and sheâ??ll be there in your home to show you breastfeeding tricks you never dreamed of. She is a big part of the joy of our birth experience and we were so thankful to have her on our team. She helped usher me into motherhood with the greatest of skill and compassion. I recommend her emphatically. Thank you Taba!
