There’s something really wonderful unfolding before my eyes as I program Shout Out Sunday each week. The joy in discovering unique postpartum support across Australia makes my little heart glow. And at the heart of each business I’ve featured thus far; Birthiful, The Wise Hippo and Your Village Doula is a foundation of strength and surrender.
This week we’re deviating not from strength and surrender but from midwifery and doula postpartum support and entering, Liquid Room, a Yoga, Flotation and Massage Studio. Located in Bayside Melbourne at 191 Bay Road Sandringham.
Liquid Room offer's pre-natal yoga classes 11:15am Sundays. $25 per class/casual drop in.
The class is run by Miriam Eve (Full disclosure, Mim is a friend, connected through our mother’s group. It is a pleasure to share the journey of motherhood with her). After the birth of her son in 2014, Mim discovered a heart-felt interest in empowering women to approach pregnancy and motherhood with a sense of fearlessness and increased confidence, encouraging unique connection to both themselves and baby.
Confidence. YAS KWEEN!
Mim’s pre-natal classes offer rejuvenating slow asana flow, with an emphasis on stability and alignment. Most importantly her classes assist in strengthening the pelvic floor, toning up the birth muscles, improving posture and alleviating aches and pains from other common ailments in pregnancy.
At Liquid Room the benefits of Mim’s class extend not just through pregnancy but during labour and post-natal recovery. The mental fitness and physical stamina aquired in a pre-natal class will without doubt serve each and every Mama-to-be in the labour ward.
What resonates with me most is the use of visualisation techniques to promote being present and helping us to let go of worry and fear.
It is easy in the early postpartum period to lose confidence quickly. Pre-natal yoga classes are a great way to create centering, stillness and connection. As well as relieving exhaustion and fatigue.
