Partner poses are lovely during pregnancy! Try this one next time you’re with your partner or a friend. This is actually a labor position too! Make sure you really give your partner your full weight, and keep your feet fully on the floor. Standing partner, hold steady and leeeeaaan back!

This awesome side body stretch allows for more breath to move around your baby. Give it a try tonight! Remember to hug your belly into your body and bring the stretch into your side ribs and armpits rather than into your belly and round ligament!

Thank you @shantersch for your beautiful story: “In 2016, I completed my 95 hour prenatal yoga teacher training in Chicago with @amalaschoolofyoga, led by my wonderful teachers @cassierodgers79 and Lela Beem. Fast forward to today at 35 weeks pregnant and about to be a mother of two, just say that this training made an impact on me is a huge understatement. This training help me to understand and verbalize what is important to me about pregnancy and birth and armed me with tools for postpartum life. It gave me the courage to be my own best advocate during my pregnancies and labor and delivery experience. It taught me the female body is strong AF, but also that pregnancy takes a strong AF toll on your body. And that’s OK. • But what is my biggest take away from my prenatal yoga teacher training? That the mind, body and spirit are one. That it’s not “mom and baby” but rather “mom-baby.” That the body is an organism, not a machine. That pregnancy and birth is inherently healthy. That pain is acceptable and it is also a process. That women have an inherent wisdom and that our bodies intuitively know what to do. That everyone’s journey to motherhood is different. That women should have ownership over their birth experience and that it’s OK to fight for it if your options are not filling your needs. That the choices you make for your pregnancy, labor and delivery will be different from others and there is no one “right “way. That surrounding yourself with positive “birth stories” is crucial. That birth is sacred and beautiful, and so is the community of prenatal yogis.” #repost
