Dearest Tara, I hope you're well. I just can't even begin to express the depth of the gratitude I feel towards you!I would never have made it without your loving yet honest and practical advice and guidance. You believed in me and guided me step by step so skilfully and patiently. THANK YOU! We would love to see you again. So much love to you xxxx Julie
Hi Tara, thanks so much-honestly we wouldn't have done it without you. You were so wonderfully positive and practical. All the best n see you round. Xxx humphrey
Please put on your website that the care that you provided in my pregnancy was brilliant. It was great for us as a family to develop a trusting relationship with the midwife in pregnancy, which helped to make the birth extra special. I always felt that you believed and trusted my body and in the birth process, even at times when I doubted myself. Lee and I felt safe and secure during the labour and birth knowing that you were there to support us. A huge thank you for all you have done to help make the experience so amazing. Ami and Lee xxxx
Testimonial for Tara Windmill Robson- please use how ever you like :)
In 2011 Tara was my birth advocate and she supported me throughout a challenging pregnancy and birth following a previous birth trauma.
Tara worked with me gently and enabled my husband and I to work through our fears.
We warmed to Tara straight away, her good nature and her humour was reassuring and safe. Her passion and love came in abundance.
I felt empowered with each choice I made and Tara gave me the insight and strength to have the faith and courage to birth again.
Tara went above and beyond to support me and my family and I would whole-heartedly recommend her. Tara is a true birth keeper

Jenny & Jonny 2012 hired Tara mid-way through their pregnancy & the birth of their baby girl, Lily
We are very happy with all that you provided, the flexibility of hours and length of visits. We felt you have the perfect balance of medical information, training, and competence, and a holistic more natural approach to care. This totally suited our needs. We felt you were really personable, which made us feel relaxed in your care. And we love that you are so totally passionate about what you do. It made us feel you really had gone the extra mile in terms of being well informed and up to date with all your knowledge which really inspired confidence in us. It's been a pleasure having you as our midwife and we wouldn't have had it any other way! Thank you J & J xxx __ Susanne & Royal hired Tara in 2010 as their independent midwife & for the birth of their first son, Inyan
Tara gave me and my family a lot of time and I thought it was great that her antenatal visits were long as they were, as it allowed us to really get to know each other. I am very satisfied with all the information you provided us to make our decisions, we had good trust with the back-up second midwife and I felt very confident and very comfortable asking questions. Our labour and birth care left us very satisfied. Our postnatal care visits were always long and we are very very happy. As you can see ~ I am VERY satisfied with your care. THANK - YOU TARA, we will be calling on your services again!
Michelle & Richard hired me to be their midwife & attend them for the home birth of their daughter, Grace in 2010
"I wanted to write on the nearing anniversary of Grace's birth, to express my gratitude... I could not imagine a better birth than the one we shared together as Grace emerged into the world. I'm so grateful for your overflowing generosity and care in offering and preparing a beautiful, cozy space to be for the birth... Thank you so much to Ella, as well, for her bountiful interest and energy to discuss with me strategies to help me cope and heal! And thank you for your stable and relaxed presence as we engaged in the birthing process...as labour unfolded effortlessly and you were present and natural...allowing perfect space for us to feel completely at ease to be and do exactly what we felt to in any given moment. And for the helpful suggestions offered at key moments during the birth, guiding us when my morale waned, letting me know it was okay to push, and for the most incredible song of sound we all partook in as Grace emerged from my body. And thank you for your assurance and steadfast presence in the crucial moment when I realized that only I could do this (birth Grace) as Rich left the room to wee and you assuringly place your hand on my knee...experiencing my first contraction where, instead of trying to do something about the sensation, I was able to completely let it flow through me. This was the birth of Grace. Love Michelle".
Michelle's aunt also wrote: Dear Tara I am filled with gratitude for your participation in the birth of Michelle and Richard's baby. I feel so much ease knowing that they had a warm and welcoming place to be and someone to support their vision of the experience they wanted & I am moved by your care of my beloveds. Tenderly, Jennifer 2010
Debbie & Mike hired me for their maternity care & to attend the home birth of their daughter Misty~Blue in 2010. "Tara was ever the consummate professional whilst always being kind and helpful. She supported us both emotionally and physically allowing us to facilitate a perfect birth and pregnancy. Spiritually she always believed in us as a couple and as a family leading us to have the same belief. We had full and total trust in her judgement and wouldn't have changed one single element of the care she provided. I truly believe that without Tara the last 10 months would have been very different and a far less pleasurable time. I would have no reservations recommending her to any pregnant mother-to-be. Tara's antenatal care was above and beyond our expectations. She imparted a great amount of knowledge and time to us, enabling us to make educated decisions. We never felt rushed and Tara was more than generous with the time she dedicated to our care. Being in labour with a midwife who had grown into a friend is the best experience I could have hoped for. I can't think of any changes I would recommend."
Jenny hired Tara as her independent midwife in 2009 for her hospital birth & the water birth of Isabella
"On a technical side I reflect on the trust that a labouring mother places in her the medical expertise of a midwife. If something were to go wrong and you start to loose control, the importance of having a midwife with in whom you feel complete trust and confidence is essential to the successful outcome of the birth. Again, I feel that Tara had complete command of the duties and procedures required of her."
Michelle in 2009 hired Tara for her independent midwifery care & to attend her home-birth of her son Michael
"I am now deeply grateful that I have had the privilege of experiencing natural child birth. It is a deeply empowering and feminine emotion which has proved a turning point in my life, showing me what I am capable of and how with my mind I can focus on a goal and surmount physical discomfort to achieve it. Thank you Tara!"
Wendy hired me to be her independent midwife in 2010 for her 2nd Caesarian & the birth of her son Jake
"It is with great extent thanks to Tara that I feel this way and have great respect for her gift and skill. I believe any woman having Tara support them through labour, whatever the outcome, would be fortunate."
Charlotte & Ben hired Tara to be their independent midwife and to attend their home-birth in 2010 of their son Jedda
"From the moment Tara took me into her care I felt calm and reassured I was being listened to, that I was in control and she would do everything possible to empower me to experience a successful natural birth."
Beth hired me as her independent midwife in 2012 for her pregnancy & home water birth of Clemmie. Beth's mum wrote
"Your care for Beth over the last few months has been quite overwhelming, it's obviously had a knock on effect on the rest of the family as well. We've stood back and watched how you've tapped into Beth's wonderful qualities and encouraged her so much. It's almost as if she just lay back and basked in herself. I don't think we can thank you enough for all that you gave her Tara. You'll be very ready for your break in Thailand now so have a lovely rest and a refreshing spiritual time. With heaps of love Katy"
Sally A. 2011 Hired Tara in 2011 for the homebirth of her son Marly
My experience was amazing, Perfect, Beautiful! Tara your presence and involvement was sensitive, responsive and completely honoured my and our birth process. Thank you Tara! x
Yvonne writes after she hired Tara as her independent midwife in 2011 "We both feel our care was worth every penny!" This little excerpt was written by my dear friend Ruth. I was invited to her birth before I trained as a midwife. Ruth birthed very quickly before the midwife arrived! It was an absolute honor to be her baby’s ‘catcher’ and the experience changed my life forever! After Iola's birth I started my training as a midwife...
“……We stoked up the fire in the front room so we'd be toasty warm. The children were asleep in bed, and the house was hushed and peaceful. I found myself leaning forwards onto the sofa for support. I knew that I wouldn't have to do anything except deal with the strengthening rushes, as my body would just push the baby out all by itself. Tara sat and watched with her hands in her lap. OH Wow! She could see the baby's head. Things were happening much quicker than we'd anticipated, but we were all still in control, although my sense of time passing seemed to dissappear, as I found myself in the full throws of giving birth to a new life. It was such a priveledge for us to have had this amazingly peaceful and gentle and smooth natural birth. The midwife hadn’t arrived, but there was no fear to feel without her presence. My feeling is that it couldn't have been more perfect, and my thanks go to Tara who was unknowingly my ‘midwife’ ........ Ruth 2003
