“I attended YogaBirth classes from 16 weeks. I had had a complicated history and was classed as high risk of premature birth, however, the teacher’s knowledge and experience meant that I was in safe hands.
Movements were either adapted to my needs or alternatives were provided. Each week I would learn from both her extensive knowledge of anatomy and the birth process. Our open discussion at the start of each week provided comfort in knowing the other attendees were experiencing similar symptoms and feelings, and often C. was able to recommend Yoga poses to alleviate discomfort.
I will forever be grateful for the breathing exercises, which I found essential in labour and came automatically to me as I had begun lessons early on. The humming/meditation techniques we were taught felt strange in lessons and yet I tried them on my newborn and found that it soothes a screaming newborn and continue using humming to this present day (she is 17 weeks old). I am so glad I did YogaBirth and highly recommend it.”
