About Me

Hi, my name is Trisha Cook and I am a 40 year old wife to my husband Mark and a mum to 5 children, Joel (91), Brandon (94), Noah (02), Tehya (05), and Abbey (07).

Norwest Doula Services is located in Sydney’s north west.

Personally I have experienced a hospital birth, a birth centre birth, a caesarean, and 2 VBAC (vaginal birth after caesarean) home waterbirths. I have a lot of experience in breastfeeding, and of course the issues that can occur along the way as well. I have breastfed all of my children, all to different ages. I have been a teen mum and also gone back after a 7 year break, so I know the trials on both sides there as well.

For a long time now I have been interested in all things pregnancy and birth. I had thought about becoming a midwife but I feel that being a doula is my true calling. This is how Norwest Doula Services came about.

I recieved my training through Childbirth International and am a fully certified doula.

I am not bound by a hospital schedule that has me finishing my shift half way through your labour. I can be with the parents from their pregnancy and follow them right through until after their baby is born. Some even coming back for their second babies.

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.

My belief on birth is that it is a natural and everyday occurance. Childbirth is not something to be feared rather a time to enjoy and look forward to. No matter what your choices are in your birth I will be there to support you.

I will provide you with information so you can make informed decisions regarding your birth.

I want to help make your birth that enjoyable (yes it is possible) experience.
