Hi, I’m Tiffany! I’m originally from Anchorage, Alaska, and recently moved to Tulsa from Denver, Colorado. I love staying up late (this has come in handy as a birth doula!), reading, spending time with my little family, traveling, attending live concerts, whitewater rafting, and squeezing naps in whenever possible. My husband and I have one young son, Liam, and an Aussie mix, Teddie. I’m a planner, but I’ve learned to embrace flexibility. I like to be prepared, educated, and think through all of the possible outcomes and scenarios for a given situation. While these are all assets to me as a doula, I quickly learned through the course of my own pregnancy and birth that not everything always goes to plan!
"Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers- strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength." - Barbara Katz Rothman
Even before she was officially a doula, Tiffany has been a great support during labor and delivery. I text her at midnight after my water broke with my oldest. She was at labor and delivery waiting on us when we got there. She stayed awake while we napped on and off thru the night watching the monitors and explaining what they did and translating dr talk. It was around noon when they rushed us to the o.r. for an emergency c section. It was scary for the last couple hours but she was great at keeping us reassured it would all work out. She has been my first point of contact for any of my pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding, miscarriage, and postpartum questions. I've had 3 children at 3 different hospitals, 2 miscarriages, and witnessed 2 other births myself. Tiffany's level of care has always excelled over others in these experiences
One of the best people around during a difficult labor where nothing went as expected. Can't wait to try again a second time and knowing I have Tiffany there as my support eases my doubts and fears for the birthing experience. Would recommend her to anyone needing doula support before, during and after labor.
I just have to start out by saying that I am so glad we chose Tiffany to be our Doula! I was really nervous thinking that someone I didn't know would be in the room with me laboring, but I knew for my first natural non-medicated birth, I wanted a Doula. After the first time meeting Tiffany, all those nervous feelings went away. I felt so comfortable with her.
Tiffany was so helpful and was always there to answer any questions or concerns I had both before and after the birth. This birth was baby number five for us, but as stated, my first non-medicated birth. I was both excited and nervous, and was so thankful to have her there.
Our birth was a very short one as my water broke at 2:30am and he made his arrival at 4:56am. Tiffany arrived to the hospital the same time as us and that was perfect. She did counter pressure as I was having intense contractions, she knew my birth plan and what I wanted, and helped me breathe and calmed me down when I felt like I couldn't do it any more. I'm so thankful we were able to have Tiffany with us, it made my birth experience so much better! I also decided to encapsulate my placenta, and Tiffany took care of all of that for us and Amy brought the finished pills to the hospital the next day. I highly recommend encapsulation! It truly has helped me so much.
She has also been available in the weeks after having our baby to answer any questions I had, and made a postpartum visit as well which was great! Tiffany really cares about you and if we had it to do all over again, I'd choose her again.
Thank you Tiffany for giving us the birth experience I was wanting!
