Pregnancy, how Feldenkrais helps

Pregnancy is a time of dynamic change and growth.  From the moment of conception, your body is beautifully adapting to carry and nurture your growing baby. Each pregnancy is unique and has a rhythm, pace and story of its own. And is a rich time to get to know yourself in new and different ways. 

The Feldenkrais Method can support you through the changes and challenges of pregnancy making for a more comfortable, personal and empowering experience. 

  • Deepen your connection with your body and with yourself
  • Feel more comfortable as your pregnancy progresses and enjoy your changing body. 
  • Improve your stability and mobility 
  • Create more choice so movement feels easy and less effortful. Less strain on joints and soft tissue.
  • Explore new ways to move in harmony with your changing centre of gravity
  • Access your body’s intuition and wisdom to meet birth and parenting with greater confidence.
  • Feel more present and grounded as you journey towards birth and parenthood.

Feldenkrais Practitioners commonly help pregnant people:

  • Improve their co-ordination, posture, mobility, breathing
  • Experience profound relaxation and calm the nervous system
  • Learn to move more comfortably through pregnancy and approach labour and birth with greater ease and flexibility.
