Birth & Postpartum Doula

Providing a continuity of emotional, physical and educational care in pregnancy, labour, birth and in the first three months postpartum (aka “the 4th trimester”). A doula on your support team means having consistent, nonjudgmental help at hand.


“Me and my partner love retelling our birth story. It was a long but empowering labour – the two-day baby festival, as we now call it. Having Tara there, our doula, gave me incredible confidence, a sense of protection and of deep understanding. The midwives in the hospital were lovely, but Tara was our own guide, somebody that knew us at a personal level, and to me that was something invaluable. I am SO glad that she was there during this life changing event.”
