Harlem , New York City
Tanisha Evans-Marin is a New York doula and childbirth educator. She has been supporting family, friends, and clients throughout the birth process for over 20 years. As a child, she planned to be an obstetrician, and after having children of her own without the support of a doula, her love and passion for women and children and her understanding of the holes that do exist in the birth support process led her eventually to her current role. Tanisha believes strongly that the person giving birth has an innate ability to birth their babies, and she holds no preconceived expectations or hopes (other than safely) of how a birth should happen. She strives to educate, nurture, support and bring peace to families through a calm demeanor, warmth, humor and a profound passion for what she does. Tanisha has now attended over 155 births and served more than 70 families with postpartum services. She has been certified as a birth and postpartum doula by DONA (CD,PCD-DONA) and as a birth doula by Carriage House Birth (CD-CHB). She is a Certified Lamaze Childbirth Educator (LCCE) as well as a Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC). She has been trained as a Placenta Encapsulation Specialist, a Malaysian Bengkung belly binder and a provider of Sacred Postpartum Care.
