MIDWIFE SLEEP CONSULTANT MUM
nice to meet you
COME MEET THE WOMAN BEHIND THE BUSINESS
I'm Tessa, a coffee loving, fitness obsessed, British midwife living in Australia. I am a mamma to two amazing girls and married a gorgeous Aussie who keeps me grounded.
With over 18 years experience in midwifery and sleep consulting I've spent my entire career dedicated to families in their transition to parenthood. Parents just like you emerge from our consultation CONFIDENT and THRIVING.
I created Enhance Sleep after emerging, nearly broken, from prolonged sleep deprivation. My premature, sick, refluxing baby just wouldn't sleep no matter what I tried. My marriage and mental health was hanging on by a thread. These challenges pushed me to not only find a solution to my own sleep issues but also become a certified sleep consultant. Now, I am lucky enough to transform the sleep (and lives) of hundreds of families each year from around the globe.
PARENTING SHOULD'T BE THIS HARD
Let me reassure you; your child is not broken. Sleep could be the answer to so many of your problems - picky eaters, toddler tantrums bedtime battles, night waking and unruly behaviours.
Whether it is your first or fourth child I understand parenting isn't always smooth sailing. Whatever age your child is I am here to support you. Are you ready?
Every family is unique. Let's get to know each other on a complimentary call

Kirstie loved Enhance Sleep because...
"5 * Our lives are back on track. We are happier now with much sleep!"
Parenting is hard enough already without the judgment and criticism.
Sure there are perfect parents out there... they just haven't had kids yet!!!
Through years of midwifery and sleep I have seen and heard it all.
There are no bad habits.
Hold your head high, you're doing an amazing job. Your child's sleep does not define you as a parent.
SCIENCE - BASED
Do you know the qualifications of your sleep consultant? Trust when booking with me I'm not only a certified sleep consultant but also a midwife with vast experience. All my methods are based on the science of sleep and nurture the parent-child bond. Work with the science of sleep and bedtime battles are gone, no cry it out in sight. I will never tell you to wean or demand baby sleeps in a separate bedroom. This is sleep done YOUR way. Gentle methods work, fact.
Mamma you are tired. Weeks or months of sleep habits aren't likely to be undone in a day (despite what other consultants may promise!). If you haven't got the energy to do this alone book a package with support ensures we transform your sleep together. I'm here to listen, support, debrief, cheer you on. Feel empowered and back in control in your parenting.
"For ten months I have responded to my baby. I was not about to leave him to cry and 'work it out himself'. But those hourly wakes were breaking me. I liked that Tessa supported our desire for a gentle solution. We achieved our sleep goals and learn so much along the way. Tessa's empathetic approach has changed my opinion of sleep consultants. I am pregnant and will be contacting Tessa the moment the baby arrives; There is no way I will go back down that same path of exhaustion and frustration with baby number two."
