I love what I doula!







We recently had Tati as our Doula for the birth of our baby boy. First of all, we highly recommend the services of a Doula for Natural Birth, very fundamental once there should be lots of preparation for it. Second, Tati was extremely helpful. But I will have to tell the whole history. This was by second pregnacy AND an attempt for VBAC. So why in first place I wanted to have a Natural Birth this time and not in the first pregnancy? And here's a simple answer: I didnt's have all the support of a Doula back then, and a perfect scenario for a beautiful natural birth ended up in a C-Section. So this time I wanted to make things different. But we contacted Tatiane a little bit too late. And no matter what, she was always available for every question and even for the possible event of another C-Section. Thankfully, our baby boy wanted to pop out at 39 weeks and what that dream was coming true. At the middle of the night I was calling Tatiane wich gave us all the support and stayed with me during the whole labor. I couldn't do it without her. Also, I would like to mention the professialism with the medical team. She never stood before me, always asking me first what was better for me and speaking very gently with the medical team. I felt very safe. And that Vbac happened and I thank her very much for all the support.

It was a great experience having Tatiane as our doula. As first time parents we felt unprepared to handle everything ourselves.  She made the preparation and labor experience much better than we could have had without her. She helped us consider things we would not have thought about during the pregnancy and made the entire birth experience better by being there when our little girl was born. Thank you so much!

I am so glad we got Tatiane Siqueira to be our doula for my first pregnancy experience.  She was truly amazing and played a crucial role in the birth of my son. Every step of the way before my labor she was so helpful and provided advice, tips and action items. She was always proactive and reached out to me before I even needed to ask.  She was amazing during my labor and provided so much support and guidance. It's so important to have a doula as they are one constant person throughout the labor process who is familiar with it and can guide you through labor.  I would definitely recommend her to others.

My wife and I had a great experience with Tatiane. She was quick in responding to all of our texts and emails. When the day came she was quick in advising us on what the next steps were.
When she arrived to the hospital she was quick to get to work and put her experience and knowledge to work. She had all items necessary when she arrived and eased as much pressure from my wife as she possibly could.
Thanks again for everything!

Hiring Tatiane to be my doula was the best decision I made during my pregnancy! She was there for me throughout my pregnancy with support and suggestions. I wouldn't have know about the benefits of going to the chiropractor during pregnancy without her, and it was a life saver! I never would have had the birth I wanted without her. She was there for me and my husband from the very beginning for labor. She gave me suggestions on different positions to try and gave my husband tips of massages to ease my pain. Without her support I would have given up and asked for the epidural. But she was there with kind words of encouragement to keep me going. Tatiane was an absolute lifesaver!! I loved that she was not only there for me but she was also there for my husband. I am so happy that I had her by my side for this very special journey.

I'm a first-time mom and I can't stress enough how invaluable having a doula is during pregnancy, labor, birth and postpartum. I can't say enough kind words about how much Tatiane meant to me and my husband by having her there through it all.

My labor and birth was nothing like what I expected (even after all the classes and books) and a lot of it seemed to catch me off guard----especially the pains and discomfort I felt from early labor to even now at two weeks postpartum. Her experience, very calm demeanor and unwavering support has been a lifesaver to me. I still distinctly remember her calm voice and words of positive affirmations to get me through the complications I had. I also remember focusing on her face so intensely as I was pushing that it brings me to tears thinking about it. It's difficult for me to describe the experience. It was if her face was an angel staring right at me, giving me strength. She instinctively knew I needed someone to focus on directly in front of me to help me through.

Aside from that, she also supported my husband and helped guide him in providing me with what I needed----a hand to hold, his bodily support, his voice. Her presence before we headed to the birth center was also exactly what we needed. Going into labor as a first time mom was scary when contractions became much more intense and closer together. With her meeting us at home, she was able to use techniques in attempt to ease my discomfort, keep in communication with my midwife and also assist in transferring me to the birth center. I don't think my husband and I could've done it all on our own. Suffice to say, I highly recommend Tatiane as your doula!

My husband is a physician, I'm a skeptic with some yoga training, and we're both very anxious. So when we were looking for a doula, we needed someone who could ground our conversations in facts and research, engage the faith in my body that was lost in my abandoned yoga practice, and offer lots of emotional support. It's a tall order, but Tatiane was the perfect person and helped us immensely as we navigated the late stages of pregnancy and labor. Tatiane is an Evidence Based Birth Instructor with a calming presence and a keen ability to read a room. She listened to our concerns and provided us with exercises to identify our priorities, anticipate and research the decision we would need to make, and help us advocate effectively with the medical staff. Our meetings with her helped my husband and I to get on the same page about what was important to us so that we were a better team during the birthing process. Once I was in labor, she helped me to slow down my contractions and labor at home as long as possible. When we got to the hospital, Tatiane created space for me to consider and discuss my options with my husband and the staff. My husband wasn't keen to work with a doula and I couldn't express exactly why I wanted a doula as part of our birth team - I still don't have the perfect words to express Tatiane's great contribution to our pregnancy and labor. My husband and I do agree, though, that our experience and even our outcomes would likely have suffered if we had not had Tatiane by our side.

Ela tinha razão e eu com sua ajuda consegui fazê-lo! Tive meu filho Daniel exatamente do jeito que sonhei com a ajuda desta Doula maravilhosa chamada Tatiane Siqueira. Muito obrigada por tudo Tati!
How to thank this angel of light named Tatiane? I will never have words that can measure the size of my gratitude! Tati is that kind of angel who gives you peace by just looking at her. She accompanied me during my pregnancy and gave me many tips on how I should proceed on the day of delivery. And the big day, she was there with me, holding out her hand and making me believe that my dream of having a normal delivery without anesthesia would be possible! She was right and I with her help managed to do it! I had my son Daniel exactly the way I dreamed of the help of this wonderful Doula named Tatiane Siqueira. Thank you so much for everything Tati!  ~F. Bezerra

Tatiane was an invaluable person in my labor and delivery. I looked for a doula because I desired a positive natural birth experience and I was apprehensive about it as a first time mom-to-be. Looking back, I feel as though she made the biggest difference and helped make it possible. Her warm and calm personality as well as tremendous professionalism really shone through in my memories of the experience.  She was a reassuring presence and with her techniques (counter pressure, support to try and get into different positions, essential oils, encouragement) she eased my discomfort so much.  I had an elective induction by doctor's recommendation and she was knowledgeable about that.  She also provided helpful information for various questions I had about labor, breasfeeding and infant care, during and after my pregnancy. I highly recommend her to any woman who is looking for more support, and to help ensure a positive birth experience.

After having a somewhat interesting experience with my first pregnancy I was almost sure I did not want to hire another doula this time around. I had an 18-month-old son at the time of delivery (now 21 months) and I am a student working on my Masters. I didn’t want to ask my husband for the money to pay for a doula and figured I would be OK since my first pregnancy was not too long ago. BOY was I WRONG! This is where I tell you, every pregnancy can be different and it never goes the way you want it. Although both of my babies came earlier then expected, I was able to deliver both of my babies vaginally (Thank God) and without an epidural. This is something I got through with the help of my doula, Tatiane (and some from my hubby too). Not only was she there for me throughout the pregnancy, but even before the pregnancy she was very supportive, a good listener, and a smart advisor. I am thankful for second-guessing myself and hiring her for my second pregnancy because she is exactly what I needed in the delivery room at 5 AM in the morning. When there were uncomfortable decisions my husband and I needed to make, she was there to console me and without words she was able to make us feel like these were the right decisions for my body. I would definitely recommend choosing Tatiane as your doula! Don’t let her quiet voice fool you because she is a sweetheart and amazing at what she does. My sweet baby girl Zyla, sends this doula lots of blessings and love for helping her mommy and daddy through this experience.

Tatiane was my doula for the birth of my third child. She has a kind heart, a warm presence and a calming demeanor. She was there for me not only for labor and delivery, but also for the weeks before and after the birth. She is very knowledgeable and, as a mother of three, has great experience to share. I am very thankful to have had her as my doula for an all natural childbirth, and I am so grateful to have had her guidance and support.
~Amanda J.


I am so happy that I chose to hire a doula and that I found Tatiane. I had a lot of anxiety about delivering my first baby and she helped me prepare by recommending helpful reading material and checking in to see how I was doing. My anxiety was heightened because my husband was deployed at the time and there was a risk that he would not be able to attend the delivery of our first baby. Luckily, he made it home in time to attend. We are both so grateful to Tatiane for all of her hard work at the hospital to help be an advocate navigating unfamiliar experiences for us. Even though I have less anxiety and fear about having another baby, I will hire her again and I would recommend her services to family and friends. Her interactions with clients and hospital staff are very professional and she is perceptive to her client’s needs.

I met Tatiane very close to my due date. I had a planned induction because my body and/or my baby were not giving sings to start labor naturally. I was extremely nervous with this medical procedure on top of becoming a new mom in a foreign country, but Tatiane’s sweetness, peaceful advice, and accurate information made me feel more comfortable with the whole situation since our very first meeting. I knew I could count on her because she always replied my messages with the best advice and wisdom words, and the day I was in the hospital for forgiving birth, she showed up to support me and my husband with all her knowledge and explanations, as well as serving as an intermediary between us and the doctor. She also provided several comforting tools that made my experience a very positive one, and her help continued even after we left the hospital! I would definitely recommend her as the best doula in Houston and Sugar Land.
Eloisa B.
I loved having Tatiane with us during my fast and furious birth. We hadn't met before hand because we decided last minute to hire a doula, but as soon as she walked into l&d(only a few minutes after we arrived) she jumped right in to help. It felt like she knew exactly what I needed without me having to say anything- counter pressure, essential oils, a shoulder to lean on. After birth she was equally as helpful with information pertaining to my choices and how to make them happen in the easiest ways possible. If we decided to have another baby, I would definitely love it if Tatiane was there to support our family again.
Rachel T.

Tatiane is the most gentle, kind, and strong soul. I don’t think I could have handled a 14 hr labor without her. She was not only there for me, and my baby, but also there for my husband. She guided him during the process & showed him how he could make me more comfortable, which in turn made contractions tolerable. Even when I felt like I couldn't go on and wanted to give up, she was extremely calm, supportive, and encouraging.
Throughout my pregnancy she was available for me with any questions I had. Including a couple of times where it was even a holiday! She always responded promptly through phone call or text, and never made me feel like just another client.
I’m so thankful of her. She was one of the best decisions we made for my pregnancy.

2 final things that made having her as my Doula priceless:
1) She also took pictures and videos of the whole thing! I never noticed!!! Not once did I feel uncomfortable or like she was in the way. Watching my baby be born was so special and I am happy I will have that memory to look back on.
2) I had my baby on Christmas Eve! She was with me the whole labor. She never rushed us or made us feel guilty.
Karlyli J.
Tatiane, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being there for the birth of our daughter. I specially couldn't have asked for a more kind, loving, calm, full of advice, helpful doula. Your support and guidance will always be remembered and thanks to you my experience this time around was so much more special and memorable. You have a gift for helping others - every visit, email and text made me feel extremely lucky to have had you as our doula.

A presença da doula foi fundamental para a minha terceira tentativa de parto natural. Passei 3 anos me preparando juntamente com um outra queridissima doula. Porém, por força do destino, Deus nos enviou para os Estados Unidos para que a nossa terceira filha pudesse nascer. Encontramos a Tatiane que nos acolheu rapida e prontamente no final de nossa gestação. Com carinho ela esteve ao nosso lado no dia que a nossa pequena filha resolveu nascer. A nossa doula estava lá de pé ás 4 da manhã. Nós encontramos no hospital e juntas ficamos esperando a chegada da Larissa. Contudo, quando entrei na reta final, pedi suplicamente para mudar de possição e sentar. Sentia que se pudesse sair daquela cama, daquela possição poderiamos ter conseguido.  Todavia, o médico decidiu que não. Falou com voz alta que não poderia e teriamos que fazer uma cesaria pois estava demorando muito. Eu achava que não, que dava para esperar. Fui para o centro cirurgico contrariada e gritando de dor. E mais uma vez ele falou com voz forte para que eu parasse de gritar que não havia mais nada o que fazer. Suas palavras ditas alta e feroz me fez sentir que nada disso seria normal, que eu estava fazendo alguma coisa fora da normalidade. O médico que desistiu! Apesar das intensas dores eu achei que passou muito rápido. Neste momento de total frustração a Tatiane esteve ao meu lado para que juntas pudessemos superar esta situação de  angustia e tristeza, mas ao mesmo tempo de alegria por ter em meus braços mais uma linda menina. Quando tudo terminou ja em casa, refletindo tudo o que passamos chego a conclusão que dar a luz é maravilhoso e se Deus quiser tentarei novamente ter um parto natural. Claro, juntamente com a doula.

Interesting how people come into our lives and make a huge difference without us noticing it. That is Tatiane Siqueira for our family. After having a Doula for our first pregnancy whom we love and admire, we were so sure that we had to have a Doula for our second pregnancy. On our 1st meeting I notice her calmness and just someone willing to listen and understand our past experience and help me/us with this new pregnancy. Tatiane is someone who was available to me everytime I needed her. Whether it was txt, email or phone. She helped me feel comfortable with the ideia of not sharing with anyone that we were having a homebirth from the start. Which wAs our family decision. When it came to labor and delivery, She rocked it. She didnt leave me alone, even when I told her I wanted to be alone. She was right there, giving me space , but right there, helping me, talking to me, massages, oils, and really helping me cope with each and every contraction. She knew when to be full on Doula mode and when to back off. We are forever grateful for her! Forever in our hearts! We love her!

My husband and I were looking for a doula for the birth of our first child in Houston since we are away from home and lacking emotional and physical support. We spoke to a couple of doulas but eventually decided on Tatiane because she is well- informed and knowledgeable about natural birth. She is also extremely patient and supportive.
My daughter arrived early and though she was on call with another mother for 48hours before that, she still came to my labour and supported me through the last moments of delivery. Her professionalism really impressed me.
She was supportive and reassuring throughout and it was really comforting for my husband and I.
We are really thankful for Tatiane and would definitely recommend anyone looking for a doula!
Cheryl T.

We hired Tatiane as our doula because of her calm, patient demeanor. When we interviewed her, she listened carefully to our concerns and needs. We wanted our baby to be born with as few medical interventions as possible with the ultimate purpose and goal being a vaginal delivery.
I had the best labor and delivery imaginable, and it would not have been possible without Tatiane. From the first contraction, Tatiane was texting us and ready to join us as soon as it was necessary. Tatiane came to our home at around 4:30 a.m., and assisted me in our home through each contraction. We left for the hospital around 6 a.m. She followed us there and continued her care as we made our way to the labor and delivery room. Each time I had to stop walking for a contraction she would pause with me and support me through it.
Shayla P.
 Tatiane was absolutely amazing as our Doula. We found her very last minute(9month) and she worked with us through the whole labor process as if she had known us for a long time. I ended up having close to 30 hours of labor at the birth center, then got transferred to hospital and finally had to have a csection due to complications. Tatiane stayed with us for 2days straight giving my husband a lot of support and helping both of us when things got hard. We will never forget all she has done and we have a healthy boy 10 days old now.
Tina B.

Tatiane was our back up doula for our birth. However, she quickly became our most trusted advisor and support person. My birth was very long and ended in a c section which was emotionally draining as we had a natural birth planned. I could not imagine going through the birth experience without the support of Tatiane. It was also great to have her visit after the baby was born.
Tori B.

I am a physician from Brazil and living in Houston for a research sabbatical period with no family nearby and only very few good friends. When I first found out I was pregnant the first concern was how to handle all the emotional and physical changes from pregnancy and delivery by myself and not in my maternal language. I never really thought about how I wanted my labor process before, but as soon as I found out I was pregnant I knew I wanted it vaginal and as natural as possible in a hospital environment. That’s when I met Tatiane. Tatiane helped me a lot both prenatally and in the delivery. In my Labor process Tatiane was one of the fundamental pieces for me having such a successful vaginal delivery with all the calm and love my baby needed for her first day of life in the outside world. She showed a lot of professionalism and helped us in such a way that is not even possible to describe in here. Our family will be forever grateful for her to put so much effort in order to do her job as a Doula in such a great way.
Mariana M.

At first my wife and I didn't understand the need for having a doula during labor as we would have our parents available to help. At one point our midwife let us know about Tatiane and told us to really reconsider our decision. We decided to meet up with Tatiane the day that pre-labor started. From the first moment we noticed her really relaxed and knowledgable vibe. She first asked what our needs and requests were before talking about what she could do for us. After this introduction she left and told to call back when labor pains were not fun anymore.
At that point we called her (at 11 PM) and she was at our house within 25 minutes. She did not waste any time and did the most wonderfull job of helping my wife get through her contractions. She stayed with us throughout the whole birth that lasted another 13 hours after she arrived. My wife and I took a birth bootcamp class learning methods to get through contractions, but nothing we learned seemed to help. Tatiane had a whole extra bag of tricks up her sleeve. My wife was amazed by the relief she was able to provide. She also helped out with other things as well, like taking pictures, making sure I (the husband) also ate and kep hydrated or let me know when I could get some rest.
I don't know how we could have done it without her. She was a true blessing sent to us for a reason. If we ever decide to have a second baby, we will definitely contact her again!
Sean B.
Tatiane was recommended to us as a birth doula by the midwives at Bay Area Birth Center in Pasadena, TX. We were very pleased with her work and
recommend her to anyone considering a birth doula. She helped us in ways we never thought would be needed. During the entire duration of the
labor, she was present, calm, friendly and took action exactly when needed.
Sanaz B.

Tatiane recently attended my birth as my doula and let me say she was such a blessing for me. When first we met I knew right away she was a warm, caring person and would serve me well. She kept in touch very consistently throughout my pregnancy, checking on me and offering advice all the time. She came for a home visit all the way out where I love which is kind of far for her. When I finally started showing signs of labor she was there for me on the phone for days of prodromal labor and came right to me when I thought I was active. She stayed with me the whole night, trying different positions and things to get me going even though my labor fell off again and she slept in a little chair. Bless her heart! She left the next day but stayed close and came right back to me when real active labor actually hit. And from there she was my rock. She was gentle and calm and her touch was welcoming. I drew so much strength and comfort from her presence. She was knowledgeable, composed and advocated for me several times knowing my wishes. She was also there for my husband, meeting any needs he had or just offering comfort or instruction. The birth of my beautiful baby girl happened to be a vaginal birth after two c-sections (VBA2C) at home in the water and I can say Tatiane was a huge part of it being successful and peaceful. I would DEFINITELY recommend Tatiane as a doula for any woman. She was amazing and you will feel greatly taken care of.

I am pleased to write a letter of recommendation for my personal and professional friend, Tatiane Siqueira. Tatiane has been known in the Houston community for some time as doula who is well-known and supportive of women. I have known Tatiane from the time she became interested in helping other women achieve the birth they desired. She has helped with our clients here at the birth center or home for about two years. Understanding the differences in the medical model of care and the midwifery model, Tatiane has researched until she found strong evidence for or against many routine practices. In a short length of time she has become one of the most popular doulas in the Houston metropolitan area. Meanwhile she artfully juggles caring for a young family and helping women at the time when they need her most, during their births.
Camellia May, LM, CPM
Midwife, Bay Area Birth Center

I have had the privilege of knowing Tatiane for over a year as her doula trainer and mentor in Houston. Tatiane has always gone above and beyond in her work with expecting clients. I have personally been able to do a birth with Tatiane, and her sweet nature is such a calm force in the birthing room. She always puts aside her own bias , and gives informed , evidence based practices with each of the clients she works with.
