What former students are saying . . .
"I do not exaggerate in the slightest when I state that taking
Tanya’s class was life changing. I was always curious about the idea of a
natural birth but never thought I could do it . . . until Tanya came
Because her class prepared me so well, I felt a sense of calm and
safety during labor that resulted in a beautiful, natural birth. I had
the good fortune of being fully present when I met my son for the first
time and an understanding of what my body is truly capable of and meant
to do. However, the birth was only one part of the Tanya story.
When my son was born tongue-tied and breast-feeding became a
challenge, Tanya stood by as my cheerleader, supporter, and mentor. I
still find myself asking what would Tanya do? And feel so fortunate that
she will always, always answer with incredible, non-judgmental, wise,
brilliantly helpful advice.
I wouldn’t be the mother, wife, or person I am today had I not taken her class. My husband, son and I are forever grateful."
-Jade, mom to Van
"Tanya wasn't just a great teacher to us but much more. She supported us like a rock, with the compassion of a friend."

"Before we started the Bradley Method® classes,
my husband and I weren't really sure what to expect. After week 1 we
were hooked and taking Tanya's class became the highlight of our week!!
Tanya's Bradley® classes
are a wonderful way of bringing together likeminded parents-to-be to
pass on her considerable knowledge in a way that is both relaxed and
enjoyable. Those classes taught my husband and I everything that we
needed to know, so that when the time came for our baby to arrive, we
both felt completely prepared and ready.
But Tanya's classes are so much more than classes about
childbirth!! I really felt as though she went above and beyond her duty
with her lessons each week, and passed on information and advice that
has helped shaped me as a mother today. I credit so much of the joy I'm
experiencing in motherhood to Tanya & her amazing classes, from
baby-wearing, to co-sleeping and especially the amazing breastfeeding
relationship I have with our daughter.
Not to mention the wonderful friends I have met through those
classes - the mummies, daddies & babies we have met through our
Bradley® course are some of
our best friends today! I can't recommend these classes highly enough
and words could never express how thankful I am to Tanya for making our
final weeks of pregnancy so special."
-Katy, mom to Bea
"Tanya was BORN to do this! Though I had many birth discussions with her prior to taking her class, Tanya's Bradley® class surprised me with how extremely informative it was. Not only did Tanya cover all the great Bradley®
information, but she also opened up her class to the numerous
questions/concerns that so many of the parents had about birth,
parenting, etc. Her Bradley®
class really put me in a wonderful place for my birth and helped me
keep that positive perspective especially when things did not go as
planned and I delivered early. Without this class, I don't think I
would have a positive view of my preterm delivery. I truly feel that
Tanya's class shaped more than just my birthing experience--she helped
shape me as a mother. When I'm faced with a decision to make, I often
wonder about her perspective and find myself thinking "What would Tanya
-Maggie, mom to Finley
"My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our Bradley®
classes with Tanya. Tanya brings such insight and passion into the
classes. We came away feeling informed, prepared and empowered. Tanya is
also a wealth of information as it relates to birthing, breastfeeding
and babies matters in general.
What sets Tanya apart from just any other teacher is that she
deeply cares about what she does. We are amazed at how committed she is
to her students and their birthing and postpartum experience. We
couldn't have made it through without her."
-Sharon, mom to Jake
"Tanya’s a supportive, enthusiastic fountain of birthing insight and
information. Birthing a baby - especially for the first time - is so
fraught in both positive and negative ways. I truly believe that one of
the key ways to stave off the negative is to educate yourself and your
partner well - if you know what's coming and how to manage it, you're
less likely to be afraid and tense.
Taking Tanya’s class was the way we did that! She’s thorough,
informative, honest, and importantly, funny. Our experience ended up
being magical, happy, healthy, and as births go, relatively easy.
Tanya’s class was a big contributor to that outcome."
