Yoga + Doula = Well-being and Support for Pregnancy, Birth and Beyond
As you embrace the Life blossoming within you, prepare yourself for the journey by strengthening and relaxing your body, making space in your mind and gathering your tribe of support for the transformation ahead.
As your Yogadoula, I am your advocate. I am honored to walk alongside you in this special time.
My aim is to provide:
NURTURE FOR MOTHER AND BABY THROUGH ACKNOWLEDGEMENT AND CONNECTION
Pregnancy and Childbirth are pivotal and transformative experiences in a person's life. It is a time to re-examine the rigidity of one’s thoughts and attitudes and make space in the body and mind for the human being growing inside the belly. It is a time of opportunity: to re-connect and to feel rooted within oneself, feeling empowered by the energy of creation growing within.
GROUNDING AND CENTERING THROUGH THE BODY AND BREATH
A regular, nourishing Yoga practice for mother and baby is an ideal way to soothe the body and mind amidst the rapid changes that pregnancy brings. The techniques for strengthening and stabilizing, for relaxation and bonding with baby provide continued support through the pregnancy, childbirth and in the postpartum period.
COMMUNITY OF SUPPORT
My yoga classes provide a platform for exchange which is extremely important during the transition to parenthood. Belonging to a community of people who share the same experiences is a valuable resource and boosts mental and emotional health.
PREPARATION AND ENCOURAGEMENT FOR CHILDBIRTH
The transition of childbirth requires an absolute and complete opening in order to welcome new life. The support of a Doula in this transition is invaluable for the birthing parent, their partner and the support team. By normalizing the birthing process, encouraging your efforts and amplifying your voice, a Doula will help you feel heard and respected no matter how childbirth unfolds.
FULL SPECTRUM DOULA SUPPORT
Doulas have your back. A Doula prioritizes their clients' needs first and foremost, advocating for a person's equal right to information, individual agency and consent, regardless of age, gender, race & cultural background. Doulas enhance any existing care networks in place, providing support along the whole spectrum of reproductive health concerns.
