Mother Nurture  -
My name is Tara Bungard and I run Mother Nurture, offering antenatal classes, breastfeeding education and support, doula and placenta encapsulation services, baby massage classes, children's yoga classes and Closing the Bones massages.  I have three children - Amy, Megan and Oliver who were born in 2007, 2009 and 2011. 

I started my journey when I trained as a doula with Nurturing Birth in April 2008.  I am now a Certified Doula with Nurturing Birth and a Doula UK Recognised birth and postnatal Doula.  As a doula I have supported vaginal and Caesarean births, VBAC and vaginal breech births, home births and water births and have postnatal experience of twins and premature as well as full-term babies.  I have attended workshops on waterbirth, breech birth, supporting fathers during pregnancy and birth and using homeopathy in pregnancy and labour.  I have also attended a Nurturing Birth Advanced Doula workshop and am trained to offer Closing the Bones postnatal massage.
 
I hold a Diploma in Childbirth Education from Childbirth International and offer regular labour and birth workshops, private childbirth preparation sessions and also breastfeeding education sessions.  I am also a Childbirth International qualified Breastfeeding Counselor and have almost finished a second Breastfeeding Counselor qualification with the Association of Breastfeeding Mothers. I help run Ely Milks, a weekly breastfeeding drop-in clinic in Ely. 

I offer a Placenta Encapsulation service, having trained through Koala Therapies in April 2010 and am also a qualified baby massage teacher.
 
I have birthing balls and TENS machines available for use by my clients and various books on pregnancy, birth and breastfeeding which clients are welcome to borrow.  I also have a birthing pool available for hire. 
 
I am a member of Doula UK, am fully insured and hold a current enhanced DBS check.
