Hello everyone, my name is Tanisha and I am Charlotte, NC based prenatal, perinatal and postpartum doula. I provide care for all families, including LGBT, surrogate/adoption, single mothers, young mothers and BIPOC. I decided to become a doula after working in healthcare and becoming a mother myself. I have had two children- one in Germany and one here in the US. Seeing the differences in the health care system and how mothers are being provided for made me want to step up and provided support. I have personally had a cesarean and vaginal birth and can understand the nerve behind both experiences. Feel free to reach out to me to see if I am good fit for you and what you are looking for.

Care philosophy

I believe in providing the expected care for those expecting. This is an amazing transitional time in you and your family's life. You deserve all the support to ensure that you have a happy, safe and desired birth.

    Working with Tanisha was amazing. I didn’t have a doula for my first child but I opted to use one for my second child. Tanisha was a huge help. We love her.

1 reviews • 30 families supported • 5 years experience

I came into birth work in 2018, I have always wanted to support pregnant people and think that being a witness to birth is one of the greatest gifts of life. Before birth work, I was a preschool teacher for a number of years. My doula services are evidence based and I make sure my clients are supported throughout their pregnancy and postpartum. I provide postpartum services as well as birth doula services. I have been trained in the Rebozo technique to provide pain management throughout the labor process. Aside from the Rebozo I also have been trained in trauma informed care and provide support for pregnancy and infant loss. I am intuitive and nurturing and that shows through my support I give each client.

Care philosophy

Empowering and educating pregnant people through my nurturing and evidence based resources. I believe that feeling supported and having all the information during your pregnancy and labor is an important role that I, as a doula, will provide. Whichever way you decide to labor I will be there to hold the space and make sure you feel empowered, supported, and confident.

    I had the privilege of having Zelle as a doula with my agency, Redwood Doulas, and as my birth partner with clients. She is warm, compassionate, knowledgeable, funny, and has a calm about her that soothes clients and babies. She is wonderful at attuning to a client and anticipating their needs, is a wonderful cook, and became a trusted member of the family for each of the clients she worked with. I can’t fully express how impressed I am at her skillset in supporting families through pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. Hire her, you will not be disappointed.

3 reviews • 200 families supported • 10 years experience

www.thestatesvilledoula.com My passion for birth work began after the somewhat traumatic birth of my oldest in 2010. I left that birth with what I had believed to be empowerment but soon after, realized the empowerment I felt was based off of my consistently advocating for and defending myself in the birth space. I realized we shouldn't HAVE to fight for how we want to birth in order to feel a false sense of empowerment. Once I had this epiphany, I felt in my heart of hearts that I never wanted another birthing person to have to jump through hurdles to have the birth they desire. Now, I support all birthing people and their families through this journey called birth and I ABSOLUTELY respect and honor the process and the family. I finally went on to have two more completely healing water births and actually base the healing on becoming informed after my first birth. The well known quote "Choose a job you love and you will never work a day in your life," is my mantra. I love what I do, I love the people I meet, and I am humbled and honored to witness families being born or growing. In 2010, after the birth of my oldest daughter, I signed up with DONA as a birth doula. Since then, I have constantly immersed myself in all things pregnancy and birth. Once I moved to North Carolina, I decided that I needed a more inclusive and comprehensive training and decided to train through Bebo Mia, a Canadian based doula training agency. Through them, I grew as a person and as a doula and truly feel as though I am able to provide COMPLETELY unbiased and evidence based care and research to each and every person and family I meet. At the same time, I trained and certified as a placenta specialist through IPPA, International Placenta and Postpartum Association. Recently, I became certified as a stillbirthday birth and bereavement doula offering bereavement services and support to those who experience a loss in any trimester of their pregnancy. Lastly (but not least), I am a trained Hypnobabies® Hypno-Doula supporting families who choose hypnosis for childbirth. ​

Care philosophy

www.thestatesvilledoula.com I am a strong believer in birthers, babies and the inherent wisdom and instinctual capabilities within all of us to give birth in the way that suits us best. I believe in birth and I believe in support during birth. You know how best to birth your baby, whether it be via cesarean birth, vaginal birth, water birth, or fully medicated birth and I am here to support you.

    With Covid visitor restrictions, I knew my husband and I needed additional support for our birth. Due to Staci being a verified doula through our local hospital system, she was able to attend in person. It was an amazing experience. She not only supported me, she supported my husband in the ways he needed. Her presence helped me to have a calm and successful VBAC. I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for support!

A postpartum doula in Kannapolis, NC is meant to help the entire family and their role is not just limited to the birthing parent and newborn. A doula provides physical and emotional support to parents and siblings, but they also offer information and advice regarding how to feed, bathe, swaddle, and soothe the baby.

They also often help with postpartum depression issues, and are considered child care “consultants” rather than medical professionals. Many postpartum doulas in Kannapolis, NC offer a range of services that can help with parents trying to adjust to a newborn child. These services often include:

  • Sibling care
  • Assist with household chores
  • Parent-baby bonding
  • Physical and emotional recovery
  • Support to parents and extended family

A postpartum doula in Kannapolis, NC can have a lasting positive impact on a family and help them feel more confident about their parenting role and the way that they feed and nurture their baby. They might offer advice regarding feeding, bathing, and parent-baby bonding.

It is important to note that a postpartum doula might offer advice but is not expected to provide medical care of any kind or serve as a replacement to an accredited physician. Postpartum doulas are also not qualified to prescribe medication.

Many new parents want to know about certified postpartum doulas and how exactly they are certified. Since the demand for postpartum doulas has greatly expanded in the last several years, the number of reputable postpartum doula training and certification programs has grown in Kannapolis, NC. Training criteria can differ from program to program, but most follow a similar curriculum which includes core academic curriculum and practical hours and real-life care experience.

One of the most common national postpartum doula training certifications comes from DONA International. A postpartum doula usually receives about 27 hours of practical training before they are a certified postpartum doula.

There are also CAPPA-certified postpartum doulas in Kannapolis, NC, as well. These doulas were certified by the Childbirth and Postpartum Professional Association, an international organization that certifies doulas and other childbirth educators/professionals.

As a reminder, because postpartum doulas are not trained to be a medical professional and diagnose and treat medical conditions, a certification is not required for them to practice.

As their names suggest, a birth doula’s main priority is to provide support services before, during and in the moments immediately after childbirth. A postpartum doula’s obligations usually begin after the birth, for several weeks or months. In many cases, your birth doula will also be a trained and certified postpartum doula, which can provide a continuity of care that many parents find extremely valuable.

Many parents want to know whether a postpartum doula or a baby nurse would meet their needs and expectations. A baby nurse might be focused on making sure that a baby sleeps or feeds properly, but that might be the extent of their role. A postpartum doula generally offers more holistic services for their clients.

A postpartum doula in Kannapolis, NC is expected to be more involved with the family as a whole. They might remain involved in sibling care or also provide emotional support to the partner as both parents adjust to becoming new parents. This may even include support for older siblings, light housework, and even meal prep. A postpartum doula provides more physical, emotional, and informational support than a baby nurse.

You can hire two types of doulas in Kannapolis, NC: a birth doula and a postpartum doula. The birth doula is during your pregnancy and through the birth of your child. They provide you with emotional, physical and educational support during your pregnancy, your labor and delivery and for the first few hours after your child is born.

A postpartum doula will support you for the first few weeks after the baby is born. They provide in-home assistance, including teaching you how to take care of your newborn, acting as lactation consultant, and can provide some night nanny services.
