Your baby, your birth, your choice.
So why choose a midwife?
It's simple: because you get more personal attention and availability. And in moments like this, it matters.
Midwives spend far more time with their clients than medical doctors, not only supporting them and addressing their needs through childbirth, but remaining available for 6 weeks after birth to assist with the transition to new parenthood - with focused care for newborns for their first 28 days of life.

your birth experience
Manhattan Birth Midwifery was founded by Tanya Wills, a former-actress-turned-midwife whose entire life was turned on its head in the best way possible with the birth of her first child in 2008. She first began as a doula, and has been a practicing midwife since 2015.
I cannot express how happy I am to have been introduced to Tanya.
I met with Tanya when I was about 25 weeks pregnant after having a home birth suggested to me. The moment she walked through the door I knew I'd like her. She's so warm and friendly and completely down to earth. I felt immediately comfortable and quite quickly felt as though if she told me pigs could fly, I'd trust her!
Throughout my pregnancy Tanya was there whenever I needed her, she was always able to put my mind at rest and reassured me in a way that allowed me to completely relax and not start googling everything. I never felt as though my questions were silly and she always made sure I had all of the information I needed.
Having a home birth really allowed me to trust and believe in myself and having an absolutely brilliant midwife is obviously part of that whole process.
I loved my experience with Tanya so much that I'm literally ready to have another baby asap! I trust this lady with my own and my children's lives implicitly and I'm so incredibly grateful to have had this opportunity in my life."
