Pregnancy can be a time of anxiety for many people at the best of times. These are not normal times. Globally, we are facing challenges that we’ve never had to face before. It is a scary time for all of us.
That being said, if you are pregnant and reading this, I want you to know ONE very important thing: you are not alone.
I know that you are probably feeling very overwhelmed right now. There is a lot of confusion out there and not a lot of answers. I want to reassure you that support is available for you and your partner. I can provide you with comprehensive, evidence-based childbirth education (live online, small group and private sessions are available) and I will be ensuring that the class includes the most up-to-date information about the Coronavirus and its impact on pregnancy, birth and your baby.
I also provide doula support. If at all possible, I will support you at home in early labour, until you feel ready to go to hospital. I will provide labour support if you are having a home birth (with a qualified midwife) and pending hospital approval, I will continue to support you in hospital throughout your labour. In circumstances where I am unable to provide in-person support, I will be available via phone, text, FaceTime, WhatsApp or Zoom in order to provide you and your partner with virtual support.
If you are feeling overwhelmed, please reach out to me. I am here to listen and to provide support. You can call me on 0422 067 985 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Remember – you are NOT alone.

“I managed to get through with no tearing, no pain relief, and no stress. I never felt like the delivery was more than I could handle. It was at times painful, but not the type of pain that I found stressful or distressing. The midwives were all blown away and told me I was just amazing at giving birth and that most first timers don’t do it so calmly or without any request for pain relief. I’m telling you this not to brag, but because I wanted to let you know that a lot of the reason I found it so easy and was so calm and relaxed was because of the information and resources that you provided as part of your Lamaze course. “ Read More…
“Tanya provided more information and practical knowledge then you would ever get at a hospital birth class (I did one and it was almost a waste of time). She helped me see this amazing experience of giving birth is what I am designed for as a woman. She helped me have faith in my body and put me in a completely different headspace, one that eliminated all the fear.
My labour and birth was the most incredible experience I’ve ever had and I’d do it all again in a second.” Read more of Denise’s story…
“I felt more confident going through labour and birth as the course reinforced just how natural and powerful the human body is. We used a lot of the tools we learnt from the course. Our son was safely born at home and I managed to have a natural, drug free home birth and it was the most empowering, challenging and beautiful experience I have gone through.” Read more of Dana and Jon’s story…
