Tess

Waxman

I am a full-spectrum doula dedicated to supporting individuals and families through all reproductive life events, including pregnancy, childbirth, postpartum, abortion, miscarriage, stillbirth, parenting, adoption, and fostering journeys. My mission is to provide compassionate, evidence-based care that activates my clients’ power to make informed, values-aligned choices about their reproductive health and experiences. I strive to provide nonjudgmental, inclusive care that honors and respects the unique needs and experiences of each individual, and I prioritize building relationships of trust and collaboration with my clients.

"Tess was truly a blessing to our family. She is much more than a doula. Her blend of knowledge, compassion, and dedication to her families goes above and beyond anything that we could have hoped for when we first considered her as our doula. We truly believe Tess is the greatest doula in the world and we have our happy and healthy baby to prove it!" - Candice, Brian, and Kenji

My approach

My academic background in Biology and Public Health has led me to appreciate both the medical and the natural. I provide my clients with the latest evidence and science-backed explanations while holding space for our bodies to work their magic. I love to share the knowledge I’ve gained through my years as a birth and child development nerd. My doula practice is firmly and unapologetically queer- and trans-inclusive, anti-racist, pro-consent and autonomy, and pro-choice. I am constantly learning and welcome any opportunities to further educate myself. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my partner and our two cats, honoring my body through dance and swimming, watching documentaries and reality TV, and fostering community. I am grateful for the opportunity to support others on their journeys and hope to meet you soon!
