She has always had a heart for pregnancy and birth, even as a child. She wanted to help women through the process of birthing, a gift that will stay with them and transform them forever. She completed her training and certification process through Cascade Christian Childbirth Association (CCCA) in 2010 and Madriella in 2016. She also completed training through Stillbirthday (SBD), Childbirth International (CBI), ProDoula, and is working toward dual certifications.

Tara serves families in all types of births, medical or natural, cesarean or vaginal, home, hospital, or birth center. She especially has a heart for families pregnant after a loss and families seeking a VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean). It is her pleasure to come alongside you and assist you in whatever your goals are, and however your birth unfolds!
