About Me

Hi, my name is Tara Luke and I am passionate about all things pregnancy, birth and babies. I really love supporting parents in pregnancy to know their choices to feel confident, relaxed and empowered about the birth of their baby. Being pregnant and having a baby can be such a special time, but it also brings change and with it a whole range of mixed emotions and feelings. So as a doula and teacher I am focussed on creating a safe nurturing space, a listening ear and non-judgemental support.

I am always completely honoured when an expectant couple asks me to be their doula during pregnancy and birth and being beside a family as they welcome their new baby into the world.

I am really proud of the continuity of care that I provide for parents that extends well beyond birth.  From providing support to a new family as a postnatal doula, nurturing a new mother as she adjusts to life after birth and bringing groups of new mums together in my fourth trimester and mum and baby classes or at parent and baby socials.

When I am not teaching classes or being a doula, I also love:

  • Walks in the countryside as we live so close to the Peak District
  • A good book whether it is historical fiction, biography or something factual
  • A glass of red wine or a fruity gin
  • Sitting in my garden in the sunshine
  • Baking and creating anything be it biscuits, cakes, quiche or tarts or just flapjack
  • Watching films and a good Netflix series
  • A trip to the theatre
  • Family camping trips
