As your doula, I’ll support you from pregnancy through postpartum and help create a safe, supportive, and nurturing environment. I’ll give you all the (unbiased) facts so you can decide what’s right for you. I’ll be your advocate and help you have the birth you want. 


My philosophy is simple:

"You have every right to want to birth a certain way, to be properly informed on your options, & to have adequate & genuine support to achieve as much of that as possible."

-Noha Sarageldin

You don’t have to settle for
“all that matters is that your baby is healthy!” 

But it matters that you…
  • Are informed about all your options and the risks and benefits of each one.
  • Make the best possible choices for you and your baby based on evidence ( without anyone breathing down your neck and telling you what to do.)
  • Have all your questions thoroughly answered instead of being ignored and told, “Don’t worry about that,” “Leave it to the professionals,” or “This is how we do it for everyone.” 
  • Feel safe and taken care of, and have your wishes respected from pregnancy through postpartum.

…And that’s exactly why I’m here.

Of course you want a healthy baby (and a doula helps with that, too) – but it’s not the only thing that matters. Your experience also matters. And let’s be honest, the current healthcare system isn’t *exactly* set up to give you a stellar experience.

I’m here to help make your labour & birth experience one that you walk away from feeling good about – one where you felt safe, respected, heard, and empowered.

But I’m not just here for your labour, because your birth story starts WAY before that. It starts with preparation, education, and support throughout your pregnancy.

I nurture strong connections with my clients and build meaningful relationships from the start to make them feel safe and comfortable.

For me, being a doula is not just business – it’s personal.

more about me

I’m Tara – Toronto-based Doula who’s a tad obsessed with her job. (And by “a tad,” I mean that I’d rather attend a birth than rewatch Breaking Bad. That says a lot.) 

hi, hello!

why hire a doula?

faster, safer and healthier births

Those with a doula present at their birth have, on average: 

a 25% faster labour
a 50% decrease in caesarian section

a 10% decrease in the need for pain medications

a decrease in the need of synthetic oxytocin (Pitocin) 

a faster transition of colostrum to milk

a decrease in postpartum mood disorders

You can have confidence and peace of mind about your upcoming birthing experience.

and it starts with preparation, education, and support.

Think I might be the doula for you?

- Emma H.

"There are absolutely no words to express the gratitude & appreciation we have for Tara. Hands down the best decision we made for my birth experience. Tara was & is exceptional. I could NOT have done it without her."

- Rose D.

"She has the empathetic, calming energy you need during labour. When I was in the thick of it all (natural at home birth) I would just look at Tara and she would make me feel more confident that I could power through the pain."

Lisa B.

"Tara supported my husband and I throughout my pregnancy, labour, delivery & postpartum period and we don’t know how we would’ve managed without her. She is so kind, a wonderful listener and a compassionate human being who truly loves what she does which comes through in her support."
