“Having Tiombe as our doula was the best decision we made in our childbirth journey. Any time we had anxieties in the months and weeks leading up to the birth of our baby, we would say, “Tiombe will be there. It’s ok.” We really didn’t worry about anything because we knew we had an experienced, knowledgeable, and compassionate advocate on our side. When I started having contractions late at night, a week before my due date, Tiombe came to our home and helped me labor there for many hours. She encouraged me and soothed me. She is a calming presence, which helped both me and my partner. Tiombe supported my decisions about birthing and offered helpful insights throughout labor. On top of it all, she took a ton of photos during delivery, which we treasure. Tiombe gave us peace of mind before delivery, valuable support during labor, and she continues to check in with us after the birth. Having Tiombe with us made the entire experience a joyful one.” – Camber
“The births of our two children were empowering and fulfilling due, greatly, to Tiombe’s continuous assurance and support. From our first meeting with her, we knew we were in expert, caring hands. She seamlessly and unintrusively provided resources for every question and concern during pregnancy. She remained in contact with us as we approached labor and, when labor began, she accompanied us to the hospital. At the hospital, she attended to my every need and concern, supporting not just me, but my husband in creating a comfortable birthing environment. She anticipated things, such as music, that I had not included in my birth plan, that made a huge difference in providing peace and ease. Tiombe’s competent and unobtrusive presence allowed me to face giving birth free of fear. I can truly say that while it was challenging, myy births were completely unmedicated and pain-free–one of my most glorious accomplishments in life–because Tiombe was there to help me focus and remain relaxed. She provided touch when I needed it and took turns with my husband as I kept moving until it was time to deliver. She worked very well with the medical team, flowing between all our requests. After I gave birth each time, she would appear miraculously with food exactly when I needed it. Tiombe is a consummate and compassionate professional integral to our multiple positive birth experiences. If you are looking for calming, assuring, thoughtful, wise, affirming support during birth, we highly recommend Tiombe Bowman. – Theresa
