TESTIMONIALS

“Wow, there’s so much to write but I will make it brief- Tanya is professional yet personal. She has answered every question I have had about birth and after. Her communication is beyond satisfactory and I am so glad she was with Shey throughout the whole process. I’ve never had heard of a doula until Tanya and now I see how great this practice is for all mothers in the birthing process and men too! Thank you for all you do!”

– Micah Morgan

“We chose Tanya for so many reasons and we are so glad we did. She is a God loving sweet soul, that truly has a passion for people and for the blessing of birth . She is aware of the stressors, the secret fears , the doubts and the “what if’s “ we all have as soon -to -be -parents. She incorporated my husband in every discussion /option and he was a huge part of the birth with hands on experiences to now cherish . She helped to empower us both to feel confident, calm and open to the experiences ahead . She thought of all the details and had it all covered before we even asked!”

“Tanya showed the highest level of care throughout my pregnancy and postpartum. I went into labor so confident in my abilities because of the knowledge she provided through her online education course and the positive reinforcement she gave during our meetings. Her passion for better birth outcomes and birth education shows in how she treats every one of her clients. I couldn’t have asked for a better doula!”

– Deja B

“Tanya is absolutely INCREDIBLE! A doula is essential for a birth, and Tanya is the best of the best. She is well educated and the best teacher and support. She was a doula for me with my third son, and her Hypnobirthing Class taught me more about labor and birth than I had ever known. I experienced such a beautiful, incredible, empowering birth and that would not have been possible without Tanya’s love, support, education, and encouragement. She is amazing and I am so thankful to have had her during one of the most life-changing moments in my life. I would highly recommend her to every family in Tampa Bay!”

– Raven K

“Tanya is an amazing person. I found her while googling doulas and her website felt like she would be the perfect fit. I immediately called her and we had an awesome conversation and I decided right then and there that I needed her on my big day. I signed up for her birth class where she made everyone involved feel informed, prepared, empowered, and cared for. Instead of fear I felt excitement and eagerness for birth!! If you’re debating a doula, don’t- you need Tanya!!”

“Tanya is compassionate and confident and working with her put my husband and me at ease through my pregnancy and during our home birth. She was a wonderful support to us from start to finish and Tanya helped make my home birth the most impactful experience of my life.”

– Amanda T

“Thanks to Tanya I was able to have the strength to birth the way I planned. She is the sweetest, so caring, and knowledgeable.

I’m so glad we were able to work together and build a bond that continues even after my baby is here”

"On a scale of 1-10 Tanya is a 16. This was our 3rd pregnancy and our only regret is not knowing to hire Tanya for the first 2. Her cool, calm and collected nature made the delivery process one we will cherish always. She was a mediator and encourager like no other. If you’re on the edge about hiring Tanya, do it and thank me later."
- Jordan J. (Men love our education and support too!)
"I truly cannot say enough good things about Tanya. I met her shortly after finding out I was pregnant with my first child and she was the first doula I interviewed. I had planned on interviewing more to keep my options open, however, I instantly knew my search was over and there was no need to look any further. Tanya’s positive, calming energy is contagious. She is so incredibly knowledgeable on everything birth related. Her education classes are a MUST for every expecting couple! The information she shares is so incredibly valuable for both parents. Working with Tanya not only cleared any fears I had of child birth, it got me EXCITED to birth. I owe it to her for being able to achieve the home birth I had dreamed of and I am forever grateful to have met her and to call her a friend."
- Stella L
"Tanya made our third pregnancy and delivery process truly amazing. She is uplifting, knowledgable and encouraging. We didn't use a doula for our first two and truly wish we would have after having the experience we did. She empowers not only the mom, but also your husband too. She gave us tools and resources to make informative decisions throughout our pregnancy journey and we are forever grateful for our relationship with her! We also decided to have this baby unmedicated and naturally. I don't think I would have been able to without her. If you aren't sure about hiring her go ahead and do it. It was the best decision we could have made!"

"Pregnant with my first child my husband and I reached out to Tanya for much needed help, advice & guidance. Working with Tanya was an absolute Godsend. Tanya helped me work on breathing techniques to help with the strong labour surges. She educated me on how to push and how to release tension in the wrong places. She reminded me that this is my birth, not the hospitals. If there was ever a moment I wasn't sure of something she reminded us to speak up and to question what is happening. My biggest take away with working with Tanya is when I was in the heart of labouring and the hospital were trying to push a C-section on us we were still able to contact her over the phone to get her much needed opinion on the situation which ultimately lead to a healthy vaginal birth to our gorgeous baby girl. We will definitely be working with Tanya when we get pregnant again. She's the best, she genuinely cares. Thankyou Tanya soo much."
- Helen K
"I never felt as though I was capable or strong enough to experience an all-natural birth free of medication and unnecessary interventions. My first child was a c-section, and the second was a VBAC. It wasn’t until I met Tanya (who is absolutely amazing!!) that I found the courage and confidence to have a home birth. From hypnobirthing class to her personal experiences Tanya has a wealth of knowledge and is the inspiration for me to one day become a doula and do the same for other women. Friendly, down-to-earth, family-oriented, reliable, and with her on my birthing team; she not only took care of me but made sure everyone present was happy!!I highly recommend hiring Tanya. I delivered my first three babies without a doula, and my fourth birth was a much different and far better experience thanks to Tanya. Tanya accommodated our schedules for Hypnobirthing classes and was always there when I needed her between sessions. She became more than a doula to my husband and me – she became our friend."
