About Norwest Doula Services – Trisha Cook
My name is Trisha Cook and I am a certified labour and birth doula, or a birth attendant. I recieved my training through Childbirth International.
Congratulations on your pregnancy and the upcoming birth of your baby. Already you are doing one of the best things you can do for yourself and your baby by looking for a doula.
This might be your first baby, or it may be your fifth, as a doula I can assist you with your pregnancy, labour, birth and postnatal period. Every pregnancy and birth deserves the very best support you can have.
As a Doula it is my objective to help achieve a positive birthing experience for mum, partner and baby.
Norwest Doula Services believe that giving birth is a natural occurance and that we have the ability to birth our babies naturally. However, I also understand that there are times when medical intervention is needed to ensure a healthy mum and bub.
How you birth is your choice, medicated, unmedicated, vaginally, caesarean or VBAC (vaginal birth after caesarean). I will support you in whichever location you feel comfortable birthing in including a birth centre, hospital, home or wherever you choose. All mothers should be listened to, treated respectfully and importantly feel that their bodies, births and babies are their own. If you are making an informed and educated decision on your birth choices you will feel so much more involved with your own pregnancy and birth.
I have experience with spontaneous and induced labours, medicated and unmedicated labours, with and without interventions, births supported by Midwives and by Obstetricians, VBAC’S, first babies, mums without partners present, vaginal births and caesarean births. I also have extensive experience with breastfeeding and am very comfortable in helping you to get your little one feeding successfully.
I am extremely passionate about VBAC’s and assisting women to achieve their desired birth as much as I possibly can.
My second passion is photography and I am happy to bring this service to you too. I can provide you with some fantastic labour and birth photos, capturing your first moments with your baby.
Your birth is exactly that – your birth. This is something you will remember for the rest of your life.
So why not try to make it the most positive and empowering experience you can.
Norwest Doula Services is located in Sydney’s North West and I am central to various major hospitals in Sydney. If you are unsure feel free to contact me and ask.
