Giving birth is a not-to-be-missed experience. Savour your pregnancy, look forward to meeting your baby and trust that your body will do exactly what it was designed so well to do. Like countless generations of women before you, you can give birth with confidence, joy and deep satisfaction.

Melbourne pregnant women and their partners can now benefit from the world’s most comprehensive and respected childbirth education program, taught by Australia’s leading and most experienced Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator, Tanya Strusberg. Quality, evidence-based independent childbirth education should be available to everyone and cost should never be a barrier. We passionately believe that all pregnant women and their partners should be able to access affordable independent childbirth education, giving them the information, tools and skills needed to help them give birth with confidence.

We help mothers and birth professionals thrive.

We live in an era of information overload. Around the world, pregnant women are bombarded on a daily basis with messages that birth is an emergency waiting to happen. It’s rare that we see beautiful images of birth and rarer still that we are exposed to empowering and positive stories of birth. As a result, many women don’t have faith in their body’s ability to give birth naturally and without a lot of medical intervention.

birthwell birthright aims to help mothers regain their connection to a vital force deep inside that knows how to give birth.

It’s that same force that intuitively guides us to parent our children.

More than ever, pregnant women and their partners need access to quality, evidence-based childbirth education. That’s why we are also leading the way by training a new generation of Australian Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educators. We need more birth professionals offering mothers a new way of looking at birth that will lead them from fear to freedom and from less ‘doing’ to more ‘being’.

Ashley, Tom and baby Max


“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…


Dana and Jon

Box Hill

“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…
