My professional affiliations
I am a member of the Perinatal Society of Australia and New Zealand. PSANZ is a multidisciplinary society dedicated to improving the health and long term outcomes for mothers and their babies. PSANZ encompasses and strongly encourages research focused on mothers and babies during pregnancy and at birth as well as the health of the newborn as its development continues after birth.
I am a member of the PADA Perinatal Anxiety& Depression Aotearoa, an organization dedicated to improving outcomes for families and whanau affected by mental illness related to pregnancy, childbirth, and early parenthood.
I am a member of the Association for Prenatal and Perinatal Psychology and Health. APPPAH’s mission is to support and promote human potential from the very beginning of life by providing global education to professionals and families about emerging evidence in prenatal and perinatal science and birth psychology that babies are conscious and aware and have their own thoughts, feelings, and experiences before, during, and after birth.
Initially, I contacted Tatiana after I have had trouble conceiving for some time and had been working with a fertility clinic. I am a naturally anxious person and I felt that part of my life was getting out of hand while dealing with all the treatment. We were due to start IVF and for the best chance of success, I felt I needed to reduce my anxiety and have someone guide me and support me through the numerous decisions and stages of an IVF cycle. Tatiana gave me tools and exercises to manage my thoughts and anxiety, she worked on me being mindful and thinking positively. Within 3 months of seeing Tatiana on a weekly basis, I conceived naturally. I obviously highly recommend her to anyone who believes they have fertility issues!!
Thank you Tatianna for the work you do, it is invaluable. Not only did you help me to enjoy my pregnancy but I believe without your help I would not have Been able to be in the comfortable and enjoyable place I am in right now.
