Workshops for birthing women, families, and health professionals

About Tessa’s workshops

Tessa is experienced in programming dynamic, engaging workshops on a variety of subjects tailored to suit participant needs. All sessions are suitable for groups of consumers and health professionals as small as 4-6, and Tessa happily works with larger audiences.

You can attend one of Tessa’s workshops either in person in metropolitan Adelaide, or online. (N.B. Tessa does travel to country locations, interstate and overseas as required.)

The VBAC Series

Part One: LOOKING FORWARD
Designed as an introduction to planning a VBAC, this session explores where to start, how to seek the support you need and where to go for good quality information. You will leave the session with practical hand outs to inspire personal research and help further direct your VBAC journey.

Part Two: LOOKING BEHIND
An opportunity to both share your birth experiences in a supportive environment of other mothers, and listen to the stories of others. Information will be provided on the night about where to find support to debrief previous birth experiences and how to start making sense of your story.

Part Three: LOOKING UPWARD
Learn about finding strength and support during your VBAC journey. We will discuss some of the common challenges faced by VBACers and how to use ‘blocks’ as ‘building blocks’.

As part of this discussion, we will also cover practical ideas for how to support a birthing woman during a VBAC pregnancy, labour and birth (partners and support people welcome!).

Part Four: LOOKING WITHIN
A lovely way to consolidate the work of previous workshops, this session is all about nurturing yourself. We will talk about how blessingways can support a positive mind-set for birth, how to plan a blissful babymoon (those precious early days with your newborn) and will finish with a fun, self-pampering group activity.
