Hey there! I'm Tara - doula & owner of modern birth co.
You're in the right place.

birth the way you want

-Noha Sarageldin

"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."

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.   

about me

I'm tara, toronto-based doula and birth enthusiast.


why hire a doula?

the evidence is clear

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

- 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."
