Online Prepared Childbirth Classes
Now offering Hybrid Online Prepared Childbirth Classes! A unique combination of on-demand videos as well as private video meetings in order to give you the evidence-based information to enter birth prepared. All from the safety of your home.
My unique classes utilize several different birthing techniques, giving you the most comprehensive childbirth class possible. While supporting numerous couples through their birthing experience I’ve noticed that there is no one technique that works well for everyone. Instead of being stuck with one method, you will have the tools to adapt to whatever feels best for YOU and YOUR unique birthing situation.
Online Guided Spinning Babies® Classes
Ease and comfort is possible during pregnancy and labor when you create space in your pelvis for your baby to move into the perfect position for birth. Pregnancy is more comfortable, labor progresses faster, and the laboring woman can find greater ease through the entire process. Spinning Babies® is an internationally recognized approach to pregnancy and labor that will teach you to look at labor from a different perspective. We focus on the location of the baby, instead of cervical dilation and encourage the baby to move down the pelvis in an optimal position by creating space for them to do so.
Online Comfort Measures Class
The key to helping labor be more comfortable is being able to relax during contractions. There are many tools and techniques for being comfortable during labor and during my years as a doula, I realized that there isn't a magic thing that works for everyone. That is why my class teaches many different positions, relaxation techniques, and tools so you can find what works best for you. I help guide your birth partner in supporting you so they can feel confident when the big day comes. This class includes on-demand videos plus a private video call with your instructor to perfect techniques and discuss any questions.

Each birth story is different, and each journey into parenthood unique.
I have a dream...
… that you can fully experience your journey into parenthood without fear.
... that your birth partner will feel confident & effective supporting you.
… that you learn to trust your body and the process of birth.
… that you have confidence you need to care for your newborn.
… that you know your strength.
THIS IS MY DREAM.
I know a truth – and that truth is that you are STRONG and CAPABLE to give birth. My passion is that you know that about yourself, past any fears of childbirth and parenting, past any insecurities you have. You are strong – let me show you!
What Families Are Saying
Tammy's class is such a helpful resource for women who want to be empowered in their birth and have a deep understanding of how the baby moves in labor and how they can assist that movement for a less painful, smoother birth. Her compilation of Spinning Babies techniques is knowledge vital for correcting malposition as early as possible and is information that most doctors would not know to try before more drastic interventions. We used some Spinning Babies during my first fairly smooth labor and are excited to have deeper knowledge to help this baby be in an ideal position as much as we can!
After our first meeting, we knew Tammy was the right doula for us, but we didn't realize just HOW RIGHT she was going to be. Every midwife and doctor who knew her and had worked with her had nothing but huge smiles and wonderful things to say about her, then at the hospital, the nurses knew her and were happy to see her, too! That level of respect is something that must be earned over time. If you are considering having a doula with you on your journey, Tammy is an amazing choice. You will feel comforted, secure, and safe. You will feel triumphant. You will feel superhuman. You will feel EMPOWERED!
My husband and I attended one of Tammy's birthing classes before the birth of our first child. Even he, a huge skeptic at first, found it very useful in preparing us to understand the birthing processes. I felt very equipped by the training and it was well worth our time.
Tammy was the perfect person to have during the birth of our first child! She supported us before, during, and after the delivery. She is happy to answer questions and accommodate/support a variety of birth plans based on what the mom wants. She helps to bring peace of mind during an intense and exciting time of life. So thankful we had her by our side!
My husband and I took a private birth class with Tammy and it was one of the best things we did to prepare for labor and delivery. Tammy is incredibly warm, knowledgeable and a great teacher. My husband was able to be a great support for me because he felt that he had some tools to help me through it all. I highly recommend Tammy and all of her services.
Tammy did such a great job helping my wife and I with the birth of our child. She made many trips to our home, educated us on ways to make mommy and baby more comfortable. She made our pregnancy and birth much more easy!
