——About Tanya Newbould——

Tanya is an expert at resilience from being adopted in the U.K., growing up with an alcoholic parent, surviving PPD to go on to co-produce the award winning “When the Bough Breaks-a documentary about Postpartum Depression”.

Growing up, Tanya was under the impression that you had to choose ONE profession growing up or you would be “Jack of all trades, master of none”. For years, Tanya believed that to be true, but was never satisfied with only going after one thing.

Cumulatively, Tanya realized that her life experience from being adopted in England, growing up with one alcoholic parent and one who suffered from manic depression only fueled her move to California from Michigan at 21 in pursuit of acting. After making many mistakes, there came a point where she was not able to eat for a week because she had run out of money.

Determined to survive, it created a strength and determination to expand in many areas of life. Majoring in Speech Communications with a minor in Theater from C.S.U.L.B., Tanya moved to L.A. and began her work in over 18 feature films, T.V. and commercials.

By the time Tanya was 30, she met and married her soulmate but felt she lived by her past story which made her feel she couldn’t truly achieve her dreams. Not wanting to accept that, Tanya embarked on a journey of self reflection, growth and knowledge. Her first foundation has always been her faith in God, but after having her beautiful daughter and suffering from horrific PPD, Tanya was determined to help others and had the forethought for a documentary about PPD. She partnered with two amazing women to co-produce “When The Bough Breaks-a documentary about Postpartum depression”, Executive Produced and narrated by Brooke Shields. Now available in 70 countries and six languages, this film has helped many women and families. This launched her public speaking career and more recently Coaching as a motivational, spiritual life coach life coach.
