Tara is a born and raised local Fort McMurray community member. She has watched it grow from a small town into a booming city and says, “I will always call Fort McMurray home”. Tara has two beautiful girls, 6 & 12, both involved in gymnastics and dance. Watching her girls grow has been a privilege and a humbling experience that she feels so very grateful for.
Being settled in her home life with a handsome fiancé, her daughters, their dogs and a humble abode – she still felt like there was something more she could give back to her community. She fondly remembers being a young Mother and while she treasures those years – she can recall times where she wished she had a neutral resource – a person to ask questions and someone to just support her in those prenatal, postpartum and early childhood rearing years. When a Doula program from the Toronto Doula Group was to be offered in Fort McMurray, Tara knew it was her next calling. She has the time, knowledge and skills to dedicate to women, Mother’s and families in her community – and she’s ready to support you.
Tara uses her massage therapy background, love for yoga & meditation, her knowledge in Childbirth and her kind and supportive demeanour to support your wishes. She prides herself on love, self-acceptance and non-judgment. She believes that gently reminding families of their birth wishes when called upon is an undeniable and priceless service to supporting the birth of babies.
She is currently an on-call Doula within the Cooperative and accepting clients. To arrange an interview and secure her for your estimated delivery date, please email her to check her availability.
