Tahna Leader (she/her)

Tahna Leader is a Postnatal Consultant and Coach operating online since 2013. She started The Baby Leader having 20 years of international in-home hands-on experience with babies and their families and now works online both Australia-wide and internationally. 


As a Postnatal Practitioner, Tahna would go into the homes of families across the world and support them with their new baby or babies. Tahna once cared for newborn triplets in Europe where her focus was on helping everyone get into a routine that would meet everyone's individual needs and enable the babies to sleep through the night. 
With her post-graduate education, Tahna is differentiated by parents for her sensitive and informed approach to postnatal care. Her clients include professionals, executives, expatriates, celebrities, and royal families amongst others. 


Tahna has designed a Parental Leave Newborn Wellbeing and Support Program that is available online exclusively to employees taking parental leave and their partners. 
Tahna also offers parents 1:1 online consulting packages for their baby’s first year. Her flagship Newborn Consulting Package consists of 6 consecutive weekly sessions designed to build parental confidence and promote sleep for family wellbeing in 6 weeks. 
When you have a new baby, Tahna can help you to be informed, feel supported, and make the most of parental leave. You might be interested in any number of topics including sleeping, settling, feeding, playing, weaning, crying, routines, toileting, behaviour, development, attachment, bonding, regulation, Government resources, popular products, hiring a nanny, starting childcare, popular books, and other Q&A.
