My name is Trisha and I am a mum to five wonderful children, wife and doula – and now a grandmother too!

I embarked on my journey of supporting births before I even knew what a doula was, supporting friends and family members through their own births, knowing that I could make a difference and provide support when needed. As such, Norwest Doula Services was born.
Being welcomed to witness such a special time in their lives is such an honour.
I have birthed in a variety of settings myself, from a standard hospital birth, birth centre, caesarean birth and finally 2 wonderful home births in water.

What I do and why I love it!

I feel that being a doula is my true calling, I love the continuity of care and that I’m not finishing my shift halfway through a mothers labour. I get to support you the whole way through. How fantastic is that!

I provide support from when we meet during your pregnancy until after your baby is born. I am blessed to witness families growing as some come back to share their second & third babies births with me also. I have also been honoured to support families as they welcome their Rainbow baby (a baby after miscarriage or loss) in to their lives, such a very special moment to share in.

I am extremely passionate about VBAC’s, Homebirths, water births and assisting women to achieve their desired birth as much as I possibly can. After having 2 VBAC’S (at home) of my own I know just how very special and healing they can be to a birthing mother. Yes it’s hard work, but so is everything worth having.

My second passion is photography and I am happy to bring this service to you too, at no extra charge! I can provide you with some fantastic labour and birth photos, capturing your first moments with your baby.
I will provide you with information so you can make informed decisions regarding your birth, information that enables you to be empowered. I don’t claim to empower women for I believe you do your own empowering, I can however give you the tools to do just that.

Being a doula in Sydney has provided me with a diverse range of clients and birthing experiences over the years, I welcome and embrace the differences that each individual woman brings to her own birth.

Whether you’re birthing via Caesarean, VBAC, Medicated or Unmedicated, Waterbirth, Birth Centre, Hospital or Home, Single mum, Teen mum or an Older mum, a doula is there to support you through your journey.

I want to assist you in making your birth an empowering and memorable experience.
