Kristina Tamez, Birth & Postpartum Doula
Kristina Renee Tamez, RN, CPCE ( certified professional childbirth educator) and breastfeeding educator. She was married here in Houston and currently lives in Spring with Mike and 3 of their 4 children. Kristina is a native houstonian and graduated from Texas Woman's University Houston Campus in 1993 with a Bachelor Degree in Nursing. She knew she wanted to be a labor and delivery nurse when her friend got pregnant at age 16, out of wedlock, and Kristina was the labor coach!
The trajectory of her life changed at that moment. After graduating Texas Woman's University -Houston, she worked at Memorial Hermann in the Medical Center -Houston in labor and delivery at night and then moved on to Woman's Hospital in the daytime. She coached countless women to include a celebrity and a princess from Saudi Arabia. In the late '90's she started her own family and worked at two different Obstetricians offices in the Houston area. She successfully breastfed all 4 children past the age of 2 years old. Since then she has been homeschooling her four children and sporadically teaching crash courses in childbirth education and breastfeeding education and creating her own curriculum for a Know Your Body 101 class for young women17 and up ...to learn about how their body works. She also has been an active member of her church serving as the staff nurse for Camp in the City with Pine Cove and serving as a New Parent Coordinator and Ministry Coordinator and Convention Coordinator for a local homeschool choir. Her motto is 'make memories and capture them'. Her 'happy place' is the beach and boating. Her favorite quote is 'If there is no struggle, there is no progress' by Frederick Douglas 1818-1895.
She has two college students, an entrepreneur son and a teenage son still at home with four dogs and 11 chickens and a rooster, so she gets fresh eggs everyday. The best part about being a labor coach in her mind, is the privilege to be there at the most intimate and vulnerable time in a woman's life to help welcome New life, nothing compares!!! Kristina is the epitome of a servant anticipating what might be going through the new Mother's mind to help ease her fears, her concerns and give her confidence that her body was made to DO this!
