What is your vision for being a mum?
The journey with the baby wrapped up in the best place ever is one step
Having the baby actually out here is the next of many into parenthood.
Fins a good network of support as that is priceless in the first years of parenting.
When I first discovered I was pregnant, all I seemed to hear were pregnancy and labour horror stories. If the truth be told I started to et a bit anxious, especially about the birth. Then a friend told me about her wonderful birthing experience – she had a home birth without any pain relief and amazingly didn’t need any stitches even although she had a big baby. When I asked my friend what her secret was, she attributed her easy pregnancy and labour to Simone’s guidance and her daily yoga routine. Worth a shot, I thought.
Simone takes a holistic approach seeking to prepare both the body and mind for pregnancy, labour and motherhood with each session tailored to your specific needs. For example, within minutes of meeting Simone identified the tension in my neck and shoulders and gave me exercises which successfully eased this pain, which had been reoccurring for years, in a matter of days. Thereafter we worked together to stretch and strengthen my body ensuring a comfortable and mobile pregnancy throughout, even during the latter stages of my 42 week pregnancy. Then there was the actual birth. My partner and I felt prepared; we knew what to expect and had the confidence to manage the process with little input from the midwives until it was time to catch the baby. I required no stitches, was able to leave the hospital the next day, and took a comparatively short time to recover.
Simone offers more than custom-made yoga routines. She has a great knowledge of the workings of the body and mind, is an expert in nutrition, practices alternative therapies and has access to a wide network of experts in relevant fields that she generously shares. I thoroughly enjoyed and learned a lot from my sessions, and would highly recommend Simone to anyone. I will happily be back for more coaching for baby number 2!
A wonderful natural waterbirth story
Throughout my pregnancy, I managed to avoid most of the aches and pains that other pregnant women complained of. I believe my yoga exercises were behind my easy pregnancy and labour. Eilidh Weir, New mother, Glasgow
Attending Simone’s class was the best thing I did after becoming pregnant. Her classes left me feeling challenged and relaxed.
