Circle of Support

Welcome to this safe and supportive space to step into your power. Cultivate your deepest intuitive wisdom, self-belief and trust in Pregnancy, Birth and Motherhood.

We are not meant to raise our families alone.

My dream is, all birthing people feel a community of support, born of love, respect, trust and connection.

In my own, wild transformative journey through birth and motherhood, my circle of support, was and continues to be the bedrock of my own and my families wellbeing.

If any of this struck a cord with you, I'd love to hear from you...

Tess was a fountain of knowledge and support in the lead up to the birth. I’d already been won over, but it was in the birthing room that I felt her influence most. I can firmly say that my wife and I would not have had the birth that we wanted if Tess wasn’t there. She was just brilliant.

Thanks for supporting me through the transitional time of pregnancy & birth again!  It's hard to put in words how much your caring and accepting attitude helps to regain trust when needed. Your movement sequences are a treat for body and mind and it's wonderful how you spontaneously target the areas currently needing some attention that day. I feel like a newborn myself after every single class :)
