The Shire Birth Doula
Supporting Women and Families during Pregnancy, Birth and Postpartum
Welcome! I'm so glad you've found your way to my page. I'm Tiarne, a certified Birth and Postpartum Doula. I am based in the Sutherland Shire, and service the Greater Sydney and the Wollongong area. I am passionate about the transition to motherhood and would be so honoured to be your doula through this time. I love pregnancy and birth and see each one as a unique and beautiful experience. I will support you through any birth you decide to have; medicated or unmedicated, at home or the hospital, vaginal or caesarean section. I am respectful of your choices and want to help you towards your desired birth.
Please get in touch to set up an initial free consultation. I really look forward to meeting you.
I take on a limited number of clients at any one time to make sure I can give you the full care and attention you deserve. By offering Prenatal Visits, my goal is to reduce any stress, allowing you to pay attention to your body and your baby and help you prepare for your birth.
With my Birthing Guidance, I offer support to you and your family before and during the birth. My goal is to make you as comfortable as you can be by supporting you physically and emotionally during labour.

The Custom Package
Customised packages to suit your specific needs and budget.
If you only desire a Birth Doula, we can arrange another package to suit. Vice versa with Postpartum sessions.
If you would like more prenatal or postpartum sessions, we can arrange that also.
I want to ensure all your needs are met.
This year is looking a little different for me, as I will be on maternity leave starting in June.
Please contact me through my contact form even if you aren't sure if I have availability.
June: Maternity leave
"Tiarne was the most incredible source of comfort and wisdom throughout my pregnancy and when we welcomed our bub! She was always there when I needed advice or had questions, and dealt with all of my 'is this normal?' messages with a smile and great resources to ease my anxieties. She is so full of knowledge about pregnancy and birth and brought so much joy and comfort to my journey into motherhood! I highly recommend having Tiarne as your Doula!"
"Tiarne shows how passionate she is about being a doula by desiring to educate women and their families through their pregnancy and birth. Her strong need to care for others in her personal and professional life shows a kinship to her role as a doula"
