My name is Tanishia Thomas and I am a DONA International Trained Birth doula serving the Chatham County, Hornet County, Chapel Hill, Carrboro, Durham, and Apex areas. As your birth doula, my goal is to facilitate a fortified support system to ensure your ideal birth experience, in whatever form it may come. I, of all people, know how unpredictable life can be. However, comfort, support, and advocacy during your birth experience should always be expected. I am here to provide that for you.  

In any occasion, a solid support system offers an extravagant amount of benefits to our daily lives. Birth, one of the most natural life experiences, has become one of the most isolating life events in our society. As expecting parents, we often neglect the importance of a virtuous, meaningful, and overall pleasant birth experience. Wouldn’t it make sense to create a unifies support system that is strong and mighty, to help create initiate your journey into parenthood? Your birth experience should never be neglected. I am here to ensure that you remember your birth experience with fondness.

I have received specialized training in the prenatal period, birth (natural, c-section, Vaginal Birth After Cesarean), and breastfeeding, and have a significant tie to this issues associated with the lack of advocacy in the delivery room, especially for women of color. I offer my services to you to not only help guide you to and through your ideal birth experience but to advocate for your wants in the hospital, birth center or your very own home. I hope that, together, we can take the plunge into creating a marvelous and memorable birth experience!
