FROM HER REFERENCES:
“Simply put, Takiya embodies passion, confidence, warmth, skill & dedication. Her role in our daughter’s birth was too special for words.”
“I wish every mother could have a Takiya.”
“We loved Takiya as our midwife and don’t know how our birth story would have ended without her. After long, hard, 20+ hours of labor at a birth center with multiple midwives, Takiya came on duty as our midwife. She brought her expertise and years of experience to the table as well as her caring heart. After discussing our options with her, we transferred to our local hospital and she met us there, determined to see us through to the end. And that she did! She coached me and pushed me when I thought I couldn’t go anymore. She worked tirelessly, and stayed past her shift’s end to help me deliver a beautiful 9lb 1oz baby girl vaginally with minimal tearing. Takiya is a huge part of our birth story and we are forever grateful to her. I would highly recommend her without ANY hesitation.”
