I am going to be offering a pregnancy package from the end of March this year. My latest training is adding Pre and post natal Pilates and Advanced CPD in Modern Pregnancy Functional Exercise Programming & Birth Preparation to my skills. I will be delivering classes in Butcombe at the Village Hall. I will add more details shortly - please contact me if you are interested in attending a class.
Wow its halfway through the month already and it seems to have taken longer than usual to get back into routine.... I have to say I love holiday time when all routine goes out of the window and I love getting back into routine too.
So back into work - Pilates lessons resumed at 'The Village Hall' with new and exciting courses booked for Pregnancy Pilates and Prenatal and Postnatal nutrition too - I hope to be offering classes by the beginning of Spring. My first KG Hypnobirthing couple are due any day ...so I am looking forward to hearing all about their experience and last week a great result for a client who is now pregnant naturally at 40 with her first child. A good start to 2016 workwise - long may it continue :)
I am very excited that I have found a workshop for Spinning Babies in the UK. I recently came across Spinning Babies whilst browsing different articles about pregnancy exercise for an advanced pregnancy course that I am currently studying. The content is so good I had to share....
So what is Spinning Babies?
Spinning Babies is a project of Gail Tully who is a midwife from Minneapolis in USA. It promotes positive principles to prepare for and progress through childbirth. The Spinning Babies website is a really great resource for couples and anyone else who is involved in pregnancy/birth to access some lovely gentle and powerful exercises. Here is a link to the website which is packed with information http://spinningbabies.com/start/
The workshop in Birmingham is on 22nd April 2016 - and is being run by firstname.lastname@example.org
For Womb awareness week I have put together a couple of tools taken from my Human Givens training and added a favourite quote!
There is no other organ quite like the Uterus. If men had such an organ, they would brag about it, so should we.
Is complementary therapy the last stop shop whilst going through your fertility journey? Would you or have you been to see a complementary therapist for a treatment? And what are your expectations about what a therapist can do to help?
As a therapist I often notice comments/articles/blogs from people who feel that they have invested heavily in a complementary therapy during their fertility journey and it has not had the desired effect - for instance a much hoped for pregnancy. That is why I believe that it is so important that both therapist and potential client invest some time setting realistic goals, discussing the clients expectations and setting a limit on how many sessions are needed to achieve the agreed outcome before therapy begins.
If as a client you feel that the complementary therapist cannot help you to achieve your goals do not invest your valuable time and money.
