Faithful Birth Doula
What is a Doula?
A Doula is a trained birth professional who provides birthing families informational support and guidance during the prenatal period, throughout labor & delivery as well as postpartum.
The word Doula originates from the Greek language which means female helper or maidservant.
Meet The Doula
Dasha Tate is an advocate of faith and a supporter of women to trust in how they were created. To help women understand we were made with purpose and one of those was to birth nations.
Dasha has taken a DONA International approved training in 2016 & trained as a Restoring Our Own Through Transformation (ROOTT) Core Doula in 2017.
When Dasha became a Doula her focus from the beginning was to help lower the infant & maternal mortality rate in our city. Through her voice Dasha is a defender of those who cannot advocate for themselves. To support them in any way possible through their pregnancy, birth and postpartum journey and provide a service to those who need it.

What I Do...
As a Doula, my first priority is to support your mental & physical comfort during the pregnancy, birth and postpartum process. In general, my role will consist of the following characteristics:
I give encouragement through affirmations and validation. We have to remember our power and understand we have the authority over ourselves, no one else. I help you remember that in the physical, mental & spiritual form.
I empower by helping you remember why you were created. With scriptural & non scriptural support to increase your faith. Support that helps you trust in your body and its ability to birth the way you want.
I protect your space by helping you trust your intuition when someone or something is troubling your spirit. I provide you with evidence based informational support to help you make conscious informed decisions and evaluate what is truly best for you.
I provide referrals to information and people based on your individual needs. I may not be best for you in all things and that is okay. I have built a strong referral network over the past couple of years for situations just like yours if needed.
Please contact me if in need of a referral or free consultation. I welcome your messages to give feed back on our services. Reach out for more information on donating to someone who needs a Doula.
