Hey there! I'm Tara - doula & owner of modern birth co.
You're in the right place.
Having a baby? I'm here to support you throughout your pregnancy, birth & postpartum journey.
My approach is simple: I believe in a woman's ability to birth her baby & I believe every woman has a right to birth that baby however she chooses. I'm here for you no matter what that choice is.
Hospital? I'm there. Home? Let's do it! Birth centre? Yippee!
My ultimate goal is to help make your labour & birth experience one that you walk away from feeling good about - one where you felt safe, respected, heard & empowered.
the evidence is clear

a faster transition of colostrum to milk
