Studies reveal that exercise during pregnancy promotes physical wellness for both mother and baby, and may prevent excessive pregnancy weight gain. Exercise may also reduce the risk of gestational diabetes, proclampsia, and cesarean births. Finally studies reveal mothers with strong abdominal walls and pelvic floors have an easier time pushing their babies out, push for shorter periods of time, and they receive less episiotomies. Most of these things are common knowledge and make good sense, but please check with your doctor before beginning or any exercise program.
Our program takes health and wellness one step further by incorporating relaxation and visualization during and after Prenatal and Postnatal Yoga classes. Yoga is good for training the mind and body to relax and breathe deeply during pain whether it is encountered with mild discomfort of Braxton Hicks contractions, riding the flow of labor and birth, listening to your body and knowing when to surrender- stage 1- and when to work- stage 2, or during postpartum and the healing aspect of birth. It is said yoga shortens the duration of labor, decreases pain, and reduces the need for conventional anesthesia. One of our first clients, Melissa Fernanadez-Evans, will attest to that in her testimonial, read it, it’s inspiring!!!
