Tanya Jennings

Client Coordinator | MAT, ICBD

Tanya has over 20 years of experience working with families and young children. Having spent most of those years as a teacher and parent educator, she pursued her passion for birth by completing her training and becoming a certified birth and postpartum doula in 2020. Over the last four years, she has supported families through pregnancy, birth, and beyond. Additionally, Tanya is certified in prenatal and postpartum yoga, and she enjoys sharing this knowledge with pregnant and birthing individuals. With her diverse background in family support and infant/child development, she is excited to expand her care for families in the community as the client coordinator at Asheville Birth and Wellness Center.

As the director, owner, and lead teacher of a local preschool-early elementary school for over a decade, Tanya has developed intimate relationships with a diverse group of people and family structures. Providing inclusive, confident, and compassionate support has been central to her work from the start, and she continues this tradition as a member of the birth center team. Offering evidence-based information and meeting families where they are in their journey with flexibility, compassion, and empathy is essential to her role in helping ensure that patients feel supported and capable of self-advocacy.

Tanya lives in Mars Hill, NC, with her husband, two teenage boys, and their sweet dogs. She enjoys reading, learning about native plants, cooking healthy meals, and is a huge fan of live music!
