Berkana Birth

Terri Baran

North-West Tasmania


From before, but particularly since, the birth of my own two children in 2012 and 2014, I have been drawn to advocating for people, particularly in pregnancy and childbirth. My pregnancies and labours with my children changed my life completely; they were eye-opening, strengthening and empowering, and it is my wish for all birthing people to experience that same feeling for themselves as they enter this new period of their lives.

Through my training with Birth Your Way Tasmania, I am confident in my knowledge of labour and birth, and truly believe that I – a person dedicated to you, your baby and your family – can enhance your experience of pregnancy, labour and childbirth. Ensuring that you and your family are completely informed during all decision-making processes, and encouraging you to trust within yourself is paramount to my service. My goal is to help to create a safe, sacred and joyous birth experience.

I am based in Devonport, supporting families along the North-West Coast.

Doula Philosophy

Birth is a normal, natural process, not a pathological ‘problem’ or medical condition to be solved or cured. You have the right to be an active participant in your own birth experience; you can make informed choices about your practitioners, your birth setting, interventions (or lack thereof), attendees, etc. It is YOUR experience.
