Tabitha Kaza CD(DONA)
Birth doula, trained birth assistant, bereavement doula, mother of twelve
My first baby was born 22 years ago, while still an undergrad at Brown University. My first six children were born in five different hospitals, and the last six at home. I became a certified DONA doula after the (painless!) birth of my ninth child in 2012, completed Spinning Babies training with Gail Tully, neonatal resuscitation and perinatal psychology with Karen Strange, birth assistant training with Birth Arts International, perinatal loss through Embracing Grace and VCU’s medical school in Richmond, and attended ACNM’s annual symposium at George Washington medical school in DC. I love birth. I always have. And want all women to know what is possible for birth.
Marilyn Alger NCBTMB
Licensed massage therapist, birth doula, experienced birth assistant, mother of four and grandmother of many
I have worked as both a doula and birth assistant, attending over 1200 births since 1993. I am a board certified massage therapist, specializing in prenatal and postpartum massage. Among my favorite continuing education exeriences are Spinning Babies with Gail Tully, which I attended several times; World Confluence of birth and body workers, to learn advanced techniques; Karen Strange's Perinatal Psychology and NRP; Tom Meyers Anatomy Trains; and myofacial techniques involving the pelvis. My husband Tony and I married in 1983, and have four children (two born in the hospital, one at a birth center, and one at home), who have graced us with many grandchildren. Outside of birth, my greatest joys are my faith and my family. I also love playing with my grandchildren, planning family events, gardening and sewing. I look forward to helping your birth journey!
Cathy Caputo CD(DONA)
Birth doula, former US Army officer, mother of four, breastfeeding focus
I became a DONA certified birth doula after having four children in four years, and dove head-first into supporting expectant mothers. Each time I witness a mother bring new life into this world, I am especially awed by what I think of as The Transcendence - the ever-so-subtle, pure, sublime moment when a woman fully slips into her forever-role of Mother. I am trained in Gail Tully's Spinning Babies, have been trained in using a Rebozo by Gina Kirby, and have a special love of helping mothers begin their breastfeeding journey. I have a great affinity for families serving our country in the military, as I come from military families and served as an officer in the U.S. Army myself. When I am not engaged in birth work, I enjoy spending time with my husband, children and dog, hiking and camping, reading, cycling, gardening and relaxing with a good glass of wine.
