Feedback from partners who've attended the workshops with Tessa:

10/10 "The workshop gave me more confidence about my ability to make choices and have our own views heard.  It gave me a lot of useful information about the role of the birth partner during the birth, to help maintain calm and act as an advocate." Alan

 9/10 "A great chance to get my head ready for the birth; both practical suggestions for me as birth partner and a think about how to help my wife have a great birth." Chris

 10/10 "A useful interactive workshop with lots of ideas and suggestions. Great to do it together. [What was most useful?] All of it!" Nathan

Feedback from training participants:

"I got to spend every Monday training with the incredible Tessa. What this wonderful woman doesn’t know about birth, the pelvis, biomechanics of birth, emotional aspects of birth etc is not worth knowing and I’m so pleased to have been able to access this training… I am full of inspired energy that I can support as many birthing experiences as I can."  Rachel Young (IG@thebirthyogi @_rachyoga)

"I was attracted to Tessa’s Birth Preparation Course as I was looking for something extra to be able to offer my pregnancy yoga clients. The course is a blend of hypnobirthing and active yoga poses which I can see appealing to second time parents and those not wanting to commit to a full hypnobirthing course. 

Tessa is extremely knowledgeable and her friendly approach made this course a joy. It was also a fantastic opportunity to meet other pregnancy yoga teachers. Tessa delivered the training in the order in which the course would be delivered to clients, with additional time to ask questions and discuss the material. She provided copies of the resources she uses, enabling us to start teaching the content straight away. Her ongoing support has been invaluable when I have had a question or just wanted to run something past her. 

The thing I particularly liked about the course is the flexibility. I found the content could be split into different units, which I have been able to offer to clients as bespoke packages. Some of my students were already completing hypnobirthing classes, and therefore did not feel they needed to revisit some of the topics. Instead, they were able to pick those which they felt would be useful and relevant to them and compliment their hypnobirthing classes. The resources provided have been great and there is the opportunity to record the scripts in your own voice and add/amend the materials to make them your own. 

I have taught this course to a number of clients over zoom and have received good feedback from them. " Jess Evans  (@jessevansyoga)
