Pregnancy Mentoring Sessions

  • What kind of birth do I want? 
  • Who are the supportive providers in the area? 
  • How do I choose a birth setting?
  • Where do I even start?
  • Wanna pick our brains?

We are happy to share our insider-expertise with you.  Tanya and the teachers at Manhattan Birth have been through this process with hundreds of couples and love to help people find their way.  We have been the "fly on the wall" in nearly every birth setting around and can help get you started off in the right direction. 

We offer mentoring services and resources to pregnant couples on any topic that suits your needs, based on your desires for your birth. Mentoring sessions are offered in our office on the upper west side, or via phone or Skype. Follow up resources are generously provided. Here are some of the most popular questions we receive in mentoring sessions:

  • How can I get the birth I want?
