CALMAMAMA

Pregnant and Post-Partum Women

Embrace the physiological body changes and address your emotional needs doubts and insecurities for an easier birth and its recovery. As a doula with an original ‘pre-birth-ing’ programme and a mother with the experience of two well prepared and succeeded home all natural births, I will guide you in a feminine way to get empowered in this most special but also delicate phase of a woman’s life.

I believe that every woman has the power to create, receive and nurture her baby in a fulfilling way once she is sensitized, re-connected, informed, heard and supported.

CalmaMama classes are individually tailored lessons, focused on each woman’s physical and emotional needs that involve exercises of breathing, strengthening, stretching and relaxing the right muscle groups for an easier birth and its recovery. All exercices are carefully guided to be done with a special focus on pelvic floor muscles of high importance during pregnancy, birth and postpartum, as well as during the whole life of a woman connected with her femininity. 

Sessions can also address particular needs beyond body work and provide a true support in all aspects of pregnancy and post-partum.

 TYPES OF CLASSES

Choose the class to fit your phase 

PREGNANCY

Exercising adequately during pregnancy alleviates the possible pain, develops posture and movement awareness and promotes a better connection with the proper body in a process of significant changes as well as with the developing body of the baby. Being personalized, the classes can start in any moment of the pregnancy, even at its very beginning. Progressively, as we get to know each other, the lessons also become a support place where you can share your possible doubts and insecurities about birth and pregnancy physiology. Pregnancy classes are a precious step to grow your confidence and become assured that your body can give birth and will be ready for the Big Day. 

BIRTH

The process of birth preparation may become highly transforming and powerful and you may want to go deeper in your search for a natural and calm birth reconnecting with the wisdom of women who have done it over centuries. If you perceive giving birth as a rite of passage you may use its force to get empowered by connecting to your own body and mind secrets and using them in your favour during birth and over your whole motherhood. These classes, either woven during regular CalmaPregnancy classes or proposed by the end of your pregnancy, go beyond body work, offer true insights into your personal process and help to reframe the pain for an easier delivery. 

POSTPARTUM

In the postpartum period, the focus on efficient strengthening of abdominal and pelvic floor muscles, naturally weakened during pregnancy, helps a woman restore her balance. For those with a diastasis recti, often undiagnosed, Postpartum sessions adapt the workout and provide guidance and necessary movement reeducation. Classes may be done with your baby by your side to  avoid unnecessary separation. And of course topics like breastfeeding, baby care, baby sleep and others will naturally come up and you will be heard of and supported in your search for becoming the mother you want to be to make your motherhood experience as joyful and fulfilling as possible.
