Thank you to our friends at The Birthing Inn, Tacoma’s only free standing birth center, for asking Source Yoga to write an article for their blog about Prenatal Yoga. The Birthing Inn practices a family-centered, holistic, alternative approach to birth. Since opening their doors in 1999, The Birthing Inn has welcomed nearly 2,000 beautiful new babies into warm, cozy, and peaceful surroundings.

And thank you to Source Yoga Family Program teacher, Christine Hills for writing such a sweet article about getting ready for baby…

 

You’ve carefully written your birth plan.  Check.  Scheduled all necessary appointments.  Check.  Prepared a room (thank you, Pinterest!) for your baby to come home to.  Check.  Tried on at least 10 baby carriers with your childhood Cabbage Patch Doll as a willing stand-in.  Check.  Stocked up on diapers and onesies and bottles (oh my!).

Check.
Check.
Check.
