I’m so incredibly honoured to work with women during these formative and often life-changing moments. Enjoying reading & listening to a handful of their wonderfully inspiring birth stories.
I started the online prenatal course halfway through my pregnancy and I couldn’t recommend it enough. I wasn’t able to attend the classes due to having another toddler at home. So the online course gave me the flexibility to stay fit and strong during pregnancy and work with my timetable. I found the classes really easy to follow and loved how well Helen explained all the moves and where to feel a stretch. Helen’s online yoga classes quickly became my regular evening activity. And, I’ve already recommended to a friend. Kate xx
Watch Anna's experience of how powerful yoga is to her during all her pregnancies, and what she got out of the practice:
Baby Aideen was born on her due date at 3:50 am! She is 7.5 lbs of lovely and very content.
Labour was fast and surprising and amazing. The golden spool of thread breath was my lifeline to get through the contractions! I walked and did hip circles. I was on all fours in the comfort of my living room.
I'm feeling great and recovering well!
Thank you so much, Helen for all of your support and wisdom. You instill such confidence in women, in their bodies and their ability to birth. I treasure every moment I spend practising yoga. Thank you for sharing that with us. We are all truly blessed by it. It had a huge impact on my ability to have the birth I wanted with strength and confidence. Angela xx
I really cant express how much the yoga and the breathing techiques helped me. Just want to say a huge thank you..without the yoga I wouldnt have survived. It was a tough couple of days of labour - It took me ages to get to 4cm - but it was so worth it. Thanks for all the support you gave me throughout this experience, i will never forget it. Thanks again for all your help and tips ;) Rachel x
Helen, my baby was born tonight during a natural, active birth. I did a lot of yoga lunges and went into natural labour. The registrar came around and said that although I had surges, he wouldn’t be surprised if I wasn’t dilated but I was fully dilated! Had my yoga mat in with me. I swear the lunges started the labour. Labour was perfect. No epidural, didn’t cross my mind. The pushing stage slowed down and again they wanted to do instrumental. I was like no way! If baby and I fine, we change positions. Great birth. Your classes were amazing and we will be back with you! You really helped me in achieving the natural birth I wanted xxx Niamh
She’s here, baby Katie Sarah 8’3′ what a little diva, born at 1.46am after a very progressively short labour, didn’t have time to use pool and thankfully any other measures just plain old yoga breathing and movements. Helen once again ur golden spool of thread breath worked and I’m a new mama to a little beauty! Waters broke along with Katie’s head appearing, she’s a drama queen, anyway thank you thank you for all your kindness and support xxx Anna
Just wanted to let you know that baby Hannah was born on Sunday. She was 7 lbs 8oz. All very quick again!! All the Lunges and hip circles moved baby down quickly and I dilated very quickly. I just want to say thanks for your brilliant yoga and all your advice. You're great at what you do! I really do appreciate the service you provide - the yoga was invaluable for both my pregnancies. xx
Just wanted to put in writing to you that I really did use what I learnt on the active birth workshop during my labour. It helped so much that I actually fell into a very peaceful sleep for 2 hours at 3cm dilated, woke up rested and relaxed at 8cm and was at 10cm within 30 minutes after that. My beautiful baby girl arrived swiftly thereafter to a very calm mummy ready to give her all the hugs and love in the world. I really can't thank you enough for a great workshop that informed and empowered me to relax into, enjoy (yes enjoy!!) yet take control of my labour. Thank you!!!! Bridget
A huge thanks to you for all the yoga classes & workshop. They were so beneficial that I was fully dilated when I went into hospital and delivered baby Lucy an hour later! I'm thrilled with how it all went, Anna x
I definitely feel more relaxed after the Pregnancy Yoga. It’s so important to keep the body moving and flexible during pregnancy. Also it's so nice to have the time to think only about my new baby. It’s really chilled and I’d definitely recommend it! Georgina
Hi Helen, I’ve been looking forward for months to this moment. Went into labor on my due date naturally. Baby Lucia was born yesterday morning at 4:18am weighing 6lbs 15oz after three pushes and 12 hours of hip circles and lunges.Thank you! xxxx Clare
