Greetings! I am Tawianna and I am a trained Birth Doula in Charlotte, NC and surrounding areas. This path of becoming a Doula chose me long before I came across the profession of being a birth worker. My purpose is to nurture, inform, and empower you so that you can create a plan to have the birthing experience you desire. I am here to get to know you and your family, and help support you emotionally and physically throughout this journey of ushering in new life. I look forward to building a relationship, and providing you with the resources to make this a smooth transition. My professional background includes attending North Carolina Central University-BA Public Administration, which led me on a service mission to serve young teen mothers, and becoming a mentor with Young Professionals Organizations. Becoming a mother myself is what sparked a new passion to serve new parents through the process of pregnancy and birth. I am currently completing my certification program through Birth Arts International.
My services currently include Birth Doula packages, Belly Binding, and Breastfeeding Support. I look forward to working with you and your growing family!

birth and postpartum doula, breastfeeding counselor
Hello! My name is Tia Diggs, a Birth and Postpartum Doula as well as Breastfeeding Counselor. I am a wife and mother of 4 girls and a baby boy. Coming from a military upbringing as both my parents are Air Force veterans, I have lived in Charlotte a few years. My academic background is in accounting and finance with Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Accounting, but my heart’s passion lies with supporting growing families as they transition to parenthood. I came to birth work after years of supporting friends through their pregnancies and various infant feeding journeys and experiencing my own births in hospital and birth center settings. I realized how much of a need there is for overall genuine care, support and compassion for families before, during and after birth and how much I truly enjoy being a source to provide that support. My goals as your doula are to support whatever decisions you choose to have the birth of your desires, help you find the power that already exists inside of you and be a source of education for your inquiries. A person’s birth experience can have a lasting impact on their lives and I strive to make sure my clients feel supported and respected mentally, physically and emotionally. This is a special time and I would be honored to take that journey alongside with you as your doula.

childbirth educator, placenta encapsulation specialist, birth and fertility doula
I have always been passionate about helping people, but after having children that passion became focused on mothers and families. I am REAL Doula trained and certified in birth, postpartum, and newborn care, certified in CPR and First Aid, and continue training in other childbirth related areas. I support individuals and families in hospitals, birth centers, and private homes in medicated, unmedicated, VBAC, cesarean, and high risk births. I also provide prenatal support including birth preparation, comfort measures for labor, formulating a birth plan, newborn care, hospital bag advisement, breastfeeding information, nursery/home staging, baby registry assistance, and more.
I love feeling empowered and helping other women feel this way. Having my children gave me a new sense of my strengths and abilities. The support given to me from my husband, family, friends and doulas helped me have labor experiences I would be happy to repeat. My goal as a doula is to support mother and family in the choices they have made for labor day. Uplifting a woman’s own strengths and needs at a time when she can be most vulnerable or unsure is my goal.
