Best decision I made for myself and my sweet baby girl was hiring Tamara as my doula! My birth went exactly as I had always dreamed thanks to her and all her great support and advocacy! She will hopefully be apart of each of my births!

The women who helped me prepare for labor and delivery were incredible in their knowledge base. They gave me confidence for when I went into labor. When I finally went into labor, they were patient, caring, and helpful when I felt discouraged. They did not push me into doing anything I didn’t want to do,…

Tamara has a special gift! I was so nervous for the birth of my 1st child and she was incredibly comforting during the entire labor process – I don’t think I could have done it without her! My 2nd baby was breech and I was very scared. I contacted Tamara late in my pregnancy and…

I can’t believe it has taken me so long to contact you to give you a heartfelt THANK YOU! for being part of Annalise’s birth in July of 2011! I doubt that I would have had a successful VBAC without you! My birth experience with Annalise was everything I wanted. I know I wasn’t always…

Cori & John

As my husband and I were preparing to welcome our first little boy into the world, we knew we wanted to enlist a doula on our team. After meeting with Tamara Cramer, we knew she was the perfect fit to our birth team.  Our childbirth classes leading up to the big day were informative and…

Tamara was a lifesaver at the births of both of my children – as we had no idea what we were doing! Her childbirth classes were phenomenal and I felt so secure knowing she would be right alongside me whenever I needed her. Without her, my births would have gone so much differently than they…

“My friend and I often joke that if we had to choose between our husbands and Tamara during labor, we would choose Tamara. While this is obviously a joke it would be true to say that Tamara was the most influential person at my birth. Having had a c-section with my first baby I was…

Alexa & Ryan

Tamara Cramer, our doula, was indispensable. Having her at our side allowed me to devote 100% of my attention to my wife. I didn’t need to be an expert on labor or positioning or delivery; Tamara was there to answer those questions and make suggestions when helpful, as well as support the nurse as we…

Sarah & Mike

Tamara was irreplaceable at the delivery of my daughter! She was an emotional encouragement in the days leading up to delivery in dealing with being overdue. At the delivery, my contractions were mostly concentrated in my back and I couldn’t have made it without her support and help with relaxation. After 34 hours of labor,…

That’s A Good Question

Someone asked me the other day, “Why WOULDN’T someone want a doula at their birth?” I have a couple guesses, but honestly I don’t know. I’ve even had women know I’m a doula, seem very interested in me attending, but eventually decide against having a doula. Various research studies show that women with doulas experience…

What NOT to Say…Part 2

I’ve thought of more things you shouldn’t say to a woman who doesn’t have kids: 11. Your (sister/brother/cousin/friend in Iceland) already has [insert # of kids here], when are you going to finally have kids? 12. “By now your mother/I/some other older woman had [insert the number of kids her amazingly fertile womb was able…
