Ballarat Birth Support
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
Sandy is mother to two magical fiery little girls. Although her passion for birth started well before she had her own babies. From just the age of eight Sandy was desperate to start attending births!
Her own experiences combined with witnessing many births within the modern maternity system led her to her current passion: that of supporting and enabling you, the pregnant person, to truly embrace your own strength and inner birthing warrior.
Frustrated with the current maternity model, Sandy is out to smash existing birth expectations, the removal of human rights in pregnancy, birth and postpartum, and help you achieve the birth you’ve always dreamed of.
Sandy dreams not only of having a truly amazing birthing centre here in Ballarat but also a not for profit centre in Thailand to help out the families much in need of support and education.
Sandy’s goal is to help improve birth outcomes for families to help reduce the trauma and abuse that many are exposed to every day.
