Session 4: Mental Preparation for Childbirth
This session is designed to help expecting mums go through the process of their big event with an optimal state of mind and less stress, fear, and anxiety. In this session Jay-Lee will share details on the empowering process of collaborating with a performance psychologist for birth preparation, with a focus on tools such as, adaptive mind-set training.
What is Pre-Natal Yoga?
Pregnancy and labour is most certainly a marathon not a sprint and prenatal yoga helps to prepare a woman, both mentally and physically, by toning important birth muscles, developing strength, flexibility & stamina and encouraging emotional well being & stress management through breath work. A woman who is in the best possible shape during this period will most likely limit common pregnancy complaints and recover faster after the bub has arrived. It is also important to recognise that prenatal yoga is more than just a “yoga class”, but also a place for relaxation, mindfulness and birth preparation.
