Lillian Soshnik-Tanquist is a trained birth doula and placenta encapsulator. As a queer identified individual, she is passionate about supporting people of all genders, ages, sexualities, family arrangements, and incomes during pregnancy, labor, and birth through informed and compassionate care.
As a birth doula, she provides physical, emotional, and informational support to birthing parents and their chosen birth partner(s) to ensure that they have a memorable and fulfilling birth. She is happy to support people in any birthing location that they choose – be that in a hospital, birth center, or at home. She believes that birth is a healthy and normal life experience and that the most fulfilling births are not dependent on the location, but occur when the birthing parent is informed, in-control, and active during the birthing process.
Lillian trusts the process of birth and believes that everyone should be able to have a doula at their birth if they desire one. Because of that, she works on a sliding scale fee based on what each client can afford.
