I've Partnered with Katie Todd, a pre-natal yoga instructor, to offer a quarterly workshop that teaches women how to align their baby before labor begins using body posture and yoga. Your baby's alignment can directly affect the duration of labor. A posterior baby usually slows labor down and stalls contractions until the baby can be moved into the proper position, usually through the use of Pitocin. We teach women how to be mindful of their body posture during the last trimester specifically to help their labor progress naturally without the need for medication.
Informative & Interactive
Informative and interactive class to learn about the importance of your body's movement in the third trimester. This is a great way to connect with other pregnant moms and learn more tips and tricks.
Safe & Optimal
This workshop will have an asana practice (primarily using an exercise ball) that is safe for all stages of pregnancy and will include poses that will create an optimal fetal position.

What Others Have to Say
“My partner and I had the great pleasure of attending the Ideal Fetal Alignment workshop. We had a beautiful day outside in the park, learned valuable tips and tricks, gained knowledge to empower and own our birthing experience, and connected with other future parents just as excited and anxious as we are. We now have great practices and takeaways, and got to take a nice full exhale easing our minds on some of the unanswered questions we have been kicking around as first-time parents. Don’t hesitate to spend some time with Dawn and Katie for some fun, down-to-Earth perspective. 10/10 highly recommended!!
