What our clients love about Tender Beginnings:
We prioritize certification from reputable organizations, and all of our doulas must meet rigorous standards, as well as carry professional insurance.
WE HAVE BACKUP
We work in pairs so that you’ll always have a personal and professional doula that you know and trust, as well as access to the whole team 24/7 before, during and after your pregnancy.
We collaborate with a larger team of professionals so that you can experience a seamless transition of care as your needs evolve and change.
WE BUILD BRIDGES
We are committed to building bridges within the community and with local providers so that everyone involved can feel confident about your birth team.
WE HAVE THE INFO
We provide the most trustworthy and up-to-date information to our clients. If we don't know the answer, we know who does.
WE DON’T JUDGE
It doesn't matter what your birth plans include, we believe that women know themselves and their babies best.
