Welcome, I'm so happy you are here.

I'm Tanya. Postpartum Care Provider.

As a register nurse and postpartum doula my work as a Postpartum Care Provider has been one developed from my journey as mother to three boys. It has been this lived experience that drew me to delve deeper into the cross-cultural teachings & art of postpartum care, so to support & nourish mothers as they prepare for and move through their postpartum period. My vision is for the collective narrative around mothers to be revered because it is the mothers who bring forth and guide our future generations. I feel the imperative and urgent need that now is the time for mothers to be well, because then our communities will be well.

My desire is for all mothers to ease into motherhood
feeling supported, nourished and loved.

For mothers to have the spaciousness to slow down to the rhythm of her child(ren); to be able to tune into her own inner knowing, wisdom and guidance system for the answers; & to be able to tend to herself in a way that enables her to feel replenished and well so to carry forth her sacred work as mother, whilst offering her own unique gift as woman in this world. Ultimately, for her postpartum period to be held with reverence and care so that she can emerge rejuvenated and thriving – physically, emotionally, mentally & spiritually.

What do I offer?

As a postpartum doula I ‘hold’ the mother as the centre of her family. My nurturing, compassionate and honouring nature offers you a holistic postpartum experience, tending to your physical, emotional and spiritual bodies.

I offer postpartum planning and preparation sessions, either on their own and in conjunction with postpartum support packages. These sessions are educational, informative and explore your specific circumstances to bring the most nourishment possible.

During in-home postpartum visits:

+ I can offer you nourishing meals & teas – which are perfect for the newborn mothers physiology rooted in TCM and Ayurvedic tradition.
+ I can offer you warming practices and ritual.
+ I can offer light house duties, including laundry, dishes, bedding, and general tiding up.
+ I can offer you informational support as needed around breastfeeding, maternal wellness and infant care, and can refer to other specialised practitioners as required.

May you feel NURTURED, NOURISHED, HELD & HEARD

“When we as a society begin to value mothers as the givers and supporters of life, then we will see social change in ways that matter.” – Ina May Gaskin
