My name is Thu Tran and I have been doing birth work since 2012. My immense passion for birth started when I discovered that families not only tend to be dissatisfied with their birth experience, but we are also losing more women and babies in birth than other developed nations.
This led to the Holistic Doula Program at the Naturopathic Institute of Therapies and Education, receiving my certification in 2014. I am trained in Hypnobirthing techniques and naturopathic remedies including herbs, homeopathics, essential oils, nutrition and more. I am currently in school to become a Nurse Midwife.
I believe all families have the right to an autonomous birth, whether that be in a hospital, birth center or in the comfort of their own home. It's also vital to me that all families — including POC, LGBTQ and single parents — get treated with the respect and dignity they deserve.
Outside of this context, you can find me tending to my garden, playing with my cats, Meowie and Skadi, or working on house projects with my partner, Nat. You should also know that my favorite science-fiction novel is Dune and my favorite snack is buttered popcorn with nutritional yeast.
