About Me

​My name is Tynesha (she/her) and I am a Certified Labor & Birth, Postpartum and Full Spectrum Birthworker (or doula) and a Certified Pelvic Floor Yoga™ Instructor. I am currently in the process of becoming a Certified Breastfeeding Specialist.

I hold a deep respect for the wonders of the human body, a passion in what nature has to teach us and a genuine love of people.  I have been guided to birthwork by my own life experiences, including the birth of my own children and learning to co-exist with pelvic floor dysfunction.

   

I consider it a deep honor to be able to support, guide and hold loving space for a birthing person on their own unique, profound, and transformative journey.

My family and I are originally from the rural prairies of Canada and have been basking in the glory of California since 2015. 

My Philosophy

  • Each reproductive and birth experience, just like every individual, is whole and unique.

  • I recognize that each birthing person is fully capable of making decisions and choices that are best for them, their body and their baby.

  • My role is to support that process through offering evidence-based information, active listening and providing relevant and local resources. 

  • Feeling SUPPORTED, INFORMED and HEARD is essential to having the most positive birth experience possible.

  • All birthing people, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender identity, family structure, physical ability or economic status deserve the utmost care and respect.

I acknowledge that the land on which I work, play and raise my family is the unceded ancestral lands of the Me-Wuk people.
