Experiences and birth stories shared by some of My Birth Boutique’s parents who all birthed with the support of a doula.

I have had months of prenatal yoga with Tarryn which I believe helped achieve the end goal of a natural birth. My advise to anyone is to do yoga during pregnancy as it has amazing benefits. My husband and I also did the 3hr hypnobirthing course with her and I must say, it was quite interesting. Learning some breathing techniques that helped during tough times, as well as connecting with my babies during the pregnancy through the hypnobirthing practices, made all the difference. Hypnobirthing calms the mind and soul. It allowed me to be calm during my birth as well as the build up to the day of birth.

Brilliant service! Tarryn flowed easily with whatever needed to be done. She knew what my wife needed and over delivered! Whether massaging, rebozo, motivating, positive affirmations, breathing techniques, helping my wife to get some sleep, feeding her and seeing to any and all my wife’s needs, Tarryn played a pivotal role from when labour started right until birth and after birth.
Compared to other doulas, Tarryn comes with a whole variety bag of skills that other doulas can’t compete with and she is not rigid, set in any way and shifts into whatever the moment requires! I love the fact that as a dad, she acted as the go-between for my wife and she involved me and showed me what to do and how to be part of the entire birthing process. For the dads to be, do yourself a huge favour and get Tarryn as a doula for your wife! She made me feel less of a dud and more included and involved. She was totally chilled, very calm and helped create and maintain a calm and supportive environment!! We felt very comfortable knowing that Tarryn was completely in our corner. She never doubted my wife and her ability once. Instead, she helped my wife to focus, stay relaxed, comfortable and calm. The important thing is that my wife got everything that she needed and more. Well worth every penny!!! If we had to do it again, I would get Tarryn involved and in much sooner/earlier in pregnancy.

Tarryn is the best doula ever. I had some tough decisions to make towards the end of my pregnancy. She was quietly informative and supportive. During the birth she looked after my whole being, physical and emotional. Her quiet and peaceful presence was reassuring and comforting. She worked as a team with my husband, never taking over or minimizing his role in birthing process. She was respectful of all medical personnel. All in all, my VBAC was a wonderful and beautiful experience that I will always cherish. Thanks for being a part of it.

The Birth of Elijah
24 November 2014 – a day I will never forget. I met my bundle of joy that I’ve been waiting for. My birth experience? At first I was scared and stressed out just thinking about it. As a first time mum you don’t know what to expect so I was so relieved to have a doula with me by my side. It made it so much easier. She supported me from the beginning to the end, and assisted me with labour techniques. I felt so strong as a woman, and motivated by someone who made me feel I could do it. To have a doula with you by your side is so helpful. I’ve learned a lot and I don’t see labour as a scary experience any more, all thanks to my doula,Tarryn. I’ve made it and I’m so proud of myself. To all the doulas out there thank you for doing what you do.
The Birth of Alif
“My experience having had a doula was wonderful. It really gave me that much needed emotional support I required.
With it having been my first baby I was very inexperienced and unaware of all the procedures one has to deal with when giving birth. My doula made me knowledgeable and gave me information that really boosted my confidence and assisted in my positive and natural birth. I am grateful for my doula’s support and for encouraging such a beautiful and calm birthing experience!”

The Birth of Matthew
Hi, here is a picture of our precious baby, Matthew. He was born on the 28th of March 2015.
I could not have gone through the labour without you Tarryn. You were positive and supportive the whole labour and really helped get me through those contractions. I would definitely recommend you to anyone I know. And when it is time for baby number two, I will definitely give you a call lol. Thanks a million. Will definitely keep in touch.

The Birth of Seth
“My husband and I are grateful to have had Tarryn’s support as a birthing coach. We were able to have an empowering birth experience, despite giving birth in hospital. We highly recommend her services. She has a very calming and empathetic presence. She proved to be sensitive to our needs, highly professional and committed. She is deeply passionate and dedicated to her job. Our baby arrived at midnight. Tarryn was in no hurry to leave. She helped me ensure my baby latched correctly and that my breastfeeding was off to a good start. Her services are invaluable.”
