Experiences and birth stories shared by some of My Birth Boutique’s parents who all birthed with the support of a doula.
Nicole, Bradley and Carter
When I found out I was pregnant I thought it’s going to be a walk in the park, reach 12 weeks and it’s all downhill from there. Unfortunately it wasn’t the case at 15 weeks I ended up in emergencies. It was a massive scare and an even bigger eye opener, I needed support and guidance, and I found exactly that in Tarryn. She was always available to answer all my questions and give great advice when I needed to stay calm and collected. I really wanted to experience a natural delivery, again unfortunately that wasn’t the case for me but never the less Tarryn was there to support me through my Caesar. I highly recommend Tarryn she cares tremendously and the love she shows for your wellbeing is the best feeling during your 9 months. Thank you for everything you did for us and being there on the arrival of our beautiful blessing.
We are forever grateful lots of love the Kockott’s

Thank you Tarryn for the amazing yoga, I wouldn't have managed if it wasn't for the confidence you instilled in me to trust my body, to have a sound mind and most importantly..to BREATH!! Thank you again..

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 were 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 calmiong and empathetic presence. She proved to be sensitive to our needs, highly professional and commited. 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.
