Hello, I'm Tiphanie Sparks.

Birth Doula, Certified Postpartum & Newborn Doula, Certified Lactation Counselor

 

I am a Professional Full Spectrum Doula, Certified Lactation Counselor and (most importantly) a mom to a wild-little man. After going through my own pregnancy, I knew then that it was my calling to become a birth professional. I knew I had to become a Doula. I was first introduced to the word “Doula” through my birthing class, however, I did not understand the importance of a Doula during (and after) birth until I had my son. Since his birth, I have dedicated my life to supporting families on their journey through the various stages of parenthood. This is my passion. This is my profession.

The important stuff

I am a DONA Trained Birth Doula (currently in process of completing birth certification). I am a certified Postpartum Doula (REAL Doula). I am also a Certified Lactation Counselor.

Working exclusively with Doulas of Las Vegas, I offer support to women and their partners before, during and after childbirth. My role is to help facilitate safe, positive and empowering birthing experience by offering evidence-based information, emotional support and physical support needed during this time. Birth, no matter how it happens, is a beautiful and empowering experience. 

What do I do for fun?

Some of the activities that enrich my life include: yoga, meditation, hiking, profession toddler wrangler, creating art, photography, going to concerts and on adventures with my friends and family. I am also an avid learner of the Spanish language, reading (fiction and nonfiction), learning more about women’s health, my cactus / succulent garden, and using essential oils.


Tiphanie was amazing during my pregnancy, during labor and especially after birth. I decided I
wanted a doula after hearing all about friends and their birth stories, I knew I wanted to ease the
tension and burden between my husband and I and Tiphanie was the perfect fit for us. She helped
us prepare for birth with a wealth of information and I knew I had a trusted confidant I could turn to
for advice and support rather than using Google.

While we had planned to have a natural, unmedicated birth... we learned that birth plans are more like birth preferences! I ended with an emergency c-section and Tiphanie was there to support us the entire way. She advocated for me to make sure that our baby was brought to me immediately after and helped me learn to nurse and was there for us throughout our stay in the hospital. After the birth, she was incredibly INCREDIBLY supportive. I had so many doubts about my ability to breastfeed and she was incredibly help during that entire process.

She has been instrumental in helping us have a successful healthy relationship between me and my
husband as well as helping me bring my first baby into the world with a little less stress! As you can tell, I’m so grateful for her support, kindness and knowledge!

Tiphanie is caring, attentive and informative. She always has a knack for knowing right when I need
a little encouragement or checking in. I highly recommend her to anyone needing support during
pregnancy AND postpartum (when you need it the most). Tiphanie is the best.

I repeatedly looked to Tiphanie for guidance and assurance throughout my pregnancy. I constantly
had concerns and questions and Tiphanie helped ease those fears and walk me through my
pregnancy all the way to the very end! I highly recommend having her by your side during your
pregnancy!
