q: what are you looking forward

to most with motherhood?

I am most looking forward to every moment with our little boy. I can't wait to feel the rush of holding him on my chest after he is pulled from my womb, to experience him latching and feeding him! I can't wait to see his daddy hold him for the first time and every time after, to watch their bond grow deeper and fuller. I can't wait to see all the things he has to teach us and all the Love we didn't know we were even capable of.

q: what are 3 yoga tips

for expecting mamas?

#1: Find a prenatal yoga class and commit. Go weekly. This is a wonderful place to meet other expecting mamas and support each other on your journeys. It’s a beautiful thing to watch the women grow each week and to not feel so alone during this transformational time.

 

#2: Listen to your body. Listen to your baby. Only you know what feels good to you and what your limits are. You are a magnet for unsolicited advice in pregnancy, so I encourage you to listen to others with no attachment. They are always telling their story, not yours. You never have to have someone else's experience or symptoms, unless you believe it to be so. I was told not to backbend, but I was bendy until 6 months pregnant! It's your yoga practice, it is personal and sacred to you.

 

#3: Be gentle with yourself. Your body belongs to you and baby now. You may not be able to touch your toes or bend like you used to. Be patient. You are in the most beautiful transition of your life. You will experience more openness than ever, this is where I encourage stability. Instead of going deeper into postures - get stronger in them. Have no expectations with yourself but to create a sacred space in your body for you and baby.

q:  do you practice prenatal yoga?

If so, what benefits do you reap from it?

 

Prenatal yoga is amazing in pregnancy, I highly recommend finding a regular class to go to from the beginning. I found it only recently.

For me, I was discouraged at first because chaturanga was never so challenging! Simple postures take my breath away and my body is so different. But powering through and paying attention to my inner dialogue is what the true yoga is. It's learning to empower myself and connect to breath and I believe that will be extremely beneficial in childbirth. And it is so encouraging to be surrounded by a community of women also experiencing all the changes of pregnancy.

q:  how do you incorporate

meditation into your pregnancy?

Meditation is the best thing you can do during pregnancy to connect with the baby. I always thought meditation meant sitting still and listening to your breath or a guided meditation, I thought there were "things to do" to meditate. But no! There is nothing you have to do and that’s the key. I realized my meditation is often just getting in the water. I love the feeling of swimming with the baby, I can feel him swimming around too! It’s the only time he feels weightless and I can experience him fully without the gravity. Swimming is low impact fluid movements and breath is naturally something you have to focus on. It's a workout without music, the only harmonies you hear are the ripples of water and your breath. For me, there is nothing for meditative than that. I also practice daily self care routines in the morning and night. I take care of my skin, do a mask, shave, paint my nails, deep condition my hair - do the girly things that make me feel nurtured and beautiful. And my favorite daily meditation is being mindful of the little man in my womb. We have constant conversations where I tell him how grateful I am for his little movements and how gentle he has been with mommy. He is told he is loved as often as I remember he's there. And daddy does this too.

 

I have had the smoothest pregnancy and I believe it is all because of the healthy relationship I have with my mind, body, partner and the idea of pregnancy. I have written the story of my pregnancy to be one that is complication and symptom-free! And that is what I have experienced. I am so grateful to be a mother and share my journey with others. I encourage other expecting mothers to speak to their womb, to be grateful for their healthy body and baby, and to affirm this. I use my malas to speak affirmations of health and peace into my body and my baby. It such a profound experience to be a conscious creator in this Divine way.

q:  how do you incorporate

meditation into your pregnancy?

Funny cravings? I haven't had any! My partner and I are plant based, so we eat all vital nutrients naturally and my body doesn't have a need for anything. I eat pretty plain and I've been told that happens with boys, but I think I ate pretty plain foods before. What's funny is I've been to restaurants and ordered a dish, loved it, then went back for the same dish a day later and hated it! The taste buds change overnight!
