If you're like me, you are doing all you can to invest in your health and the health of your future child. Here are some of my favorite resources that I enjoyed to feel good while pregnant, prepare for the birth, and support myself and my spouse.
For exercise, walking and yoga felt like a perfect combo for my 3rd trimester. The Twin Cities has TWO amazing options for yoga, Everyday Miracles right down the hall from us in NE Minneapolis, and Blooma in SW Minneapolis, St. Paul, and Plymouth. Both have great resources in other areas - childbirth, lactation, massage, etc.
For those who are feeling like they've had enough appointments and commitments, here are daily exercises from Spinning Babies to balance your pelvis and get ready for labor that you can do right from your living room . Don't worry, you don't need to buy the video, there are many exercises and tips as you scroll down.
If you are interested in having a doula to support you for labor, MN Childbirth Collective is a great place to meet with potential providers who match your values and style. As an added bonus, they meet for Parent Topic nights on Monday evenings right down the hall from us at Everyday Miracles! If you qualify for MN Care, Everyday Miracles provides a doula free of charge, covered by your insurance. They are also fantastic at helping mamas with other resources, such as car seats and breast pumps.
We love helping and serving pregnant mamas. Please call or email us if you have any specific questions or would like your spine and pelvis to be checked to help feel great and optimize your body for labor!
