I am really looking forward to revisiting the topic of prenatal yoga on this week's episode! We explored some of the benefits of pre- and postnatal yoga back in episode 30, but today we are going to dive even deeper.
I'm joined by the wonderful Deb Flashenberg, founder and director of the Prenatal Yoga Center in New York City, to talk all about her work and this practice. Deb is also a labor support doula, Lamaze childbirth educator and mother of two. She has really thrown herself into the world of pregnancy & birth in support of her clients and has experienced the benefits of prenatal yoga herself.
Deb and I talk about her journey into teaching prenatal yoga and the philosophies that underpin her center & support. We discuss how yoga can create balance in the body during pregnancy and birth, how this can make labor and delivery smoother and the importance of learning to manage pain and discomfort.
We also talk about bodily autonomy and how practicing prenatal yoga can help you get more comfortable advocating for yourself during pregnancy and birth. There is so much amazing stuff packed into this episode - I learned a lot myself and know all of you will too!
