Sandy Tai is a wildly passionate feminist birth doula who is here to help you kick butt in your birth!
Your positive birth begins with Sandy
When I was 7 years old I discovered my sister (22 years my senior) was expecting her first baby! And my deepest yearning was to make my way from sunny queensland across the dessert to Darwin to witness this baby being born! It turns out that mothers don’t generally allow their daughters travel solo interstate, to see babies be born so I didn’t get to go. Boo.
However the deep yearning to attend births and to hold and witness women during one of the most transformational passages of their life has held strong!
I am now blessed to call myself an internationally accredited Doula and Ballarats only professional birth photographer.
Somewhere in there I also trained as an actor, and taught dance and drama, and whilst it was an incredibly fun time in my life, it wasn’t my calling. Supporting women and capturing the true essence of your inner birthing warrior is exactly what sets my soul on fire!
My husband, Liam, and I are raising our two wild Mighty Girls to be world shakers and change makers and we try to lead by example.
I am a passionate advocate for human rights & womens rights, especially in the birth space as well as destigmatising mental health through sharing my own stories about post natal depression.
Basically I want to change the world!
None of this would be possible without a chai latte in hand, Hogwarts to return to and gallows humour to lighten the mood.
