Specialising in Birth related Trauma and Anxiety | Baby Massage & Baby Yoga Teacher.
Hi my name is Tanya . I'm a registered Children’s Nurse and Independent Health Visitor and self confessed coffee addict. I'm originally from Bristol but have lived in North Essex for 10 years. I lived in London for 5 years but I met my partner shortly after finishing university and we decided to move to Essex. I'm also mummy to a beautiful and fiercely independent little girl who keeps us on our toes.
I qualified as a nurse for 12 years ago and have worked in various hospitals and more recently in the community. I learnt a lot of valuable skills during my time practicing as an NHS Health Visitor that I bring into my work with Ebb & Flo, but it’s not a role that I found a good fit. My passion is to empower parents to feel confident and connected, taking an individualistic approach, taking the time to find out what’s right and what works for them and their baby. I enjoy helping women and pregnant people to learn more about their body, how to prepare for and nurture their baby and how to promote their own postnatal recovery using modern and traditional practices from around the world.
I am also an accredited 3 step rewind practitioner with Traumatic Birth Recovery. I felt drawn to undertake this training as I've cared for so many people who are deeply affected by negative emotions associated with memories from their pregnancy, birth or postnatal period, which has impacted on their health and the bond with their baby. Too often these people don’t know where to seek help and are wrongly diagnosed with postnatal depression and prescribed medication without having the chance to resolve these emotions or have the opportunity to heal.
Look forward to meeting you
