Taniqua James, Birth and Postpartum Doula

My name is Taniqua, I'm the founder of The Hoston House. I started my doula journey while working in labor and delivery. I decided I wanted to do more but how can I do that. I did some research and took my first workshop. It wasn’t until I had my own daughter and wanted a doula and couldn’t have one that I knew I wanted to be there for another mom who needed support through birth and after. 

Through my job at the hospital I switched over to more postpartum care. Swaddling newborns, first baths, first feedings and night shift rotations. I became well versed with 12 hours shifts, on demand feedings and lactation support. Just making a difference in the many families I aided I knew being a doula was my calling.
