Hello, I’m Tasmyn from The Simple Doula, and I am embracing the simplicity of birth!
I offer a continuity of care to women in the far northern suburbs of Perth, and my aim is to inspire and encourage women to educate themselves and better equip them with birth knowledge. I believe that education is key to having better birth experiences.
I myself have had 2 very different births. My first was highly medicalized with unnecessary interventions, resulting in trauma simply because I gave away my power. The other was a peaceful home birth where I regained all my womanly power. This personal journey has fuelled my passion for helping other women navigate their birth experiences.
In addition to my doula work, I lead a very basic (simple) lifestyle that brings me joy. I enjoy taking the kids to the beach while indulging in a sneaky beer or cider and have a deep love for camping and the outdoors. My partner and I often disconnect from the world and go off-grid for a few days & even when we have phone signal while camping, we make a conscious effort to switch off our phones and truly immerse ourselves in nature. It’s during these moments that I find solace and rejuvenation.
As a mother, you’ll often find me in the middle of the night with both kids squished so tightly either side of me. They’re completely obsessed with me, and I mean, can’t blame ‘em (I’m pretty cool). Im a big breastfeeding advocate (as well as co sleeping, clearly) and often remind women about the bond between a mother and her children & how truly remarkable and precious it is.
I firmly believe that if you’re not prepared, birth can blindside you. Going with the flow because “you can’t plan birth” is not the way to approach this transformative journey. While birth is unpredictable, it doesn’t mean you can’t be prepared for it. My goal is to empower women through education and awareness. Unfortunately, 1 in 3 women experience birth trauma, but I have a fire in my belly, and I’m determined to reduce those statistics. With education, empowerment, and the magical intuition we possess, I believe I can help women have kick-ass, euphoric, and soul-inspiring births. I am an advocate for the strength and power of women, and I’ll be damned if I let anyone think otherwise.
Our bodies are incredibly intelligent, but I feel there is often a disconnect between us and our bodies. My mission is to help women regain that love and trust within themselves. I want to give you back your power by helping you trust yourself, your body, and your baby. Most importantly, I want to cultivate your instincts so that you can navigate your birth experience with confidence and intuition.
Birth is not just about bringing a baby into the world; it’s about the transformation of a woman. It’s the day your whole world changes, the day you transition from maiden to mother, and you’ll never be the same person you were before welcoming this little babe into the world. It’s a special, important, and monumental day—both mentally and physically. We want it to be filled with love, safety, warmth, and calmness.
If you need help releasing any fear or tension you may have about birth, I am here to assist you. I’m a pregnancy and birth doula based in Two Rocks, serving the far northern suburbs of Perth. Whether it’s your first babe or your fifth, I’m here to support you in gaining the confidence you need to birth simply, on your own terms, in your own way, wherever and however you feel comfortable. I strive to provide unbiased information to educate you and help you make informed decisions while being a familiar face who understands all your wants and needs.
I am currently studying with Vicki Hobbs at the Doula Training Academy in Perth, if you would like more information about how I can support you on your journey then feel free to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you!
