Too strong for labor?

  I remember one moment very clearly in our birth course at the hospital: the nurse had just explained the process of birth. The contractions, how the baby descends, all that good stuff. My husband looked at me and said “The uterus is a big muscle? This is going to be so easy for you! You’re […]

Prenatal Yoga Series – Tadasana

Ah, Tadasana (or Mountain Pose as it’s better known). Often overlooked for its importance (let’s face it, it’s not very exciting), Tadasana is actually an incredibly important pose during pregnancy.

Prenatal Yoga Series – Gate Pose

Gate pose (or Parighasana) gives you the chance to focus on some much needed stretching to the sides of the body, something that provides so much relief to women during pregnancy.

Healthy & Happy Pregnancy Holidays

Ah, the holidays. Always busy, always stressful. But what about if we could have “healthy holidays”? Do we dare dream of a holiday season without stress? A festive season filled with personal time and yummy treats that don’t leave you on a sugar high? Maybe it’s my age or the fact that this is the […]
