Clear to Conceive Yoga
Clear to Conceive Yoga and Healing
Have you felt the heartbreaking sadness of not conceiving the child you want so much?
Do you worry that you have failed in some way or that your body has let you down?
Do you see friends and family members with their babies and feel broken?
Is all of this causing you deep sadness and anxiety?
I feel your pain and I understand. Having a child is so important. It has become your one and only focus and everything you do revolves around this. It is exhausting you and putting a strain on your relationships.
You’ve tried so many routes and have been told that, physically, there is nothing wrong with your body but you just “know’ that something isn’t quite right. You know intuitively that your baby is waiting for you but something is preventing your body from accepting them. You need to clear this block and create energy and flow. It’s as if you need to press the reset button to give your body a moment to pause.
You need to think outside of your logical box.
It might be that you already have children but are struggling to conceive again. Perhaps you have suffered the heartbreak of many miscarriages and feel that there is something not quite right with your body. It’s a feeling you can’t properly describe - it’s almost as if your body feels ‘blocked’ - you know that it’s there and you know that you need to release it, you just don’t know how.
You need to step out of your current energetic space and into something that feels different. You need to be able to allow yourself to relax so that your body can open. Blocked energy builds up and restricts flow through your body. You need to release the pressure and the guilt and heal. A healed body in flow is a body ready to conceive.
Yoga and breathwork are all about flow. Your body needs physical, emotional and energetic flow to release the “blocks” and create the perfect space for you to welcome your baby.
If you’re ready to embrace something a little different and you recognise that your body craves space for healing release, then clear to conceive yoga and healing is for you.
What you get
- space to release your fears and guilt around conception;
- one to one guidance on the right yoga postures to create flow through your body;
- breathwork that will relax you, open your body and create energetic space;
- healing time to reflect on your journey and to explore your anxieties;
- stress free time for yourself;
- and support during and after the sessions so that you don’t feel alone in this journey.
I understand that what you're going through is very personal and sensitive and is causing you a great deal of distress. Each healing is taken at your pace and on your terms. All I ask is that you pay deep attention to how you feel during and after each healing and that you take things easy for a few hours afterwards. Flow and healing cause shifts within your body that take time to process. It is likely that you will feel very tired.
Sometimes we reach a point in our lives where we know that we need to try something different and trust in what is being offered. I know that this may feel like a giant leap of faith for you and that words like “healing” can be difficult to understand. Healing is simply ‘the process of making or becoming sound or healthy again’ and we are helping your body to become healthy so that she is ready to conceive.
I will travel to you for each healing and recommend that they last for at least 90 minutes. The first session may be a little longer as I like to give you time to get to know me and vice versa. A 90 minute healing costs £125.
I am also able to offer you:
- My expert advice for any queries outside the session. I am always available over the phone or by email. I really do care about you and journey and I do all I can to make sure that I am available when you need me.
- Time after each session to ask me questions in my areas of expertise in birth preparation, motherhood and wellness.
- Access to my network of contacts and knowledge of the motherhood services and practices here in Birmingham. If I don't know the answer, I will know someone who does to make sure you have the information you need.
Healing spaces where your body heals for your baby
As Seen In...
What our mums say...
Mandy really encourages everyone
I first attended Mandy’s pregnancy yoga classes when I was pregnant with my first baby, the yoga helped hugely with my pregnancy aches and pains but most of all the support and encouragement from both Mandy and the rest of the group was amazing. Mandy really encourages everyone to engage with each other which wasn’t something that I had experienced in other groups I attended, it meant that I felt safe in asking that daft question or verbalising my fears! I then went on to attend baby massage and postnatal yoga with my first baby and again the support and ability to engage with other new moms was fantastic! I have recently had my second baby and attended pregnancy yoga, whilst I had less concerns and worries about pregnancy and birth the classes gave me a dedicated hour to have just for me...which was so important and you don’t get much time to yourself when you are running around after a toddler! I am now attending postnatal yoga and although this is having to be done via zoom Mandy has continued to provide a safe environment and an opportunity to engage with other Moms! Thank you Mandy you help me keep my sanity!
Mandy understands that babies have their own minds...
Mandy was extremely friendly and made me feel at ease so quickly. Which was fantastic as I was nervous being the youngest mum in the room. It was good to introduce everybody and nice for Mandy to explain she understands babies have their own minds so if we wanted to we could feed or change nappies just simply watch.
And she really meant it.
Having tea and cake at the end of each session made you stay and engage with the mums. I loved how Mandy explained all the benefits of the different massages e.g. winds/sinuses Oh and one final thing I loved the goody bag! Couldn’t rate the class highly enough.
Mandy is such a positive influence
I went to Mandy's pregnancy yoga class for a block of 8 lessons. I enjoyed it so much that I kept going for another two blocks. You may think you're going for yoga, but it's so much more. Mandy is such a positive influence on how you feel about your pregnancy, birth and parenting. I gained friends, lost any fear of giving birth and am looking forward to joining one of her baby classes with my newborn.
Every class provides a relaxed and friendly environment
I first attended baby massage classes when my son was 3 months old, and then went on to do mum and baby yoga, and I’m on my 4th block of classes now (my son is now 9 months old!) Every class provides a relaxed and friendly environment, great yoga for post pregnancy, focussing on pelvic floor exercises and breathing, and a general feel good hour where you can forget about the outside world. The cake and tea are a bonus at the end of the classes and I have met some really lovely moms through attending. Mandy has a special gift at teaching and she never fails to create a relaxed environment for the babies, who all seem fixated by her presence. I am so glad I found her classes as Wednesdays are my favourite days of the week! Cannot recommend enough.
I did want to say thank you. Your classes are fantastic - you explain everything so clearly and know which achy bits to work on. It has made me think that I should find a ‘normal’ (ie not postnatal) yoga class post-lockdown, but finding the time will be a big challenge! I also think that what you do for mums is great and I hope that you will be able to start your classes in person again soon. If I come across any mums to be or new mums I will certainly recommend you, although Arlo was a late (and very happy) addition to our family and most of the mums I know have kids at school now. That’s been another positive for me actually - being able to connect with people going through the baby/pregnancy stage as otherwise it would have been very easy to neglect that side of my life with the demands of having other young children. One of the unforeseen bonuses of Mandy's classes was that my baby always slept for three hours afterwards!
SO glad I'd found Mandy and her classes
I had previously been to a few different yoga classes and found them a bit intense and not what I was looking for. I heard about Mandy's prenatal yoga classes through a friend and it sounded just what I was looking for. From the first session I was SO glad I'd found Mandy and her classes. They are way more than a yoga class - meditation, breathing exercises, relaxation and a chance to chat to other expectant mums and soak in Mandy's wisdom. The jammie dodgers are a welcome bonus to the class too! Since lockdown the classes were via zoom and this worked really well and I still had the same sense of connection and relaxation I got from the in person class. Between classes I also did Mandy's yoga sessions on her website which really helped me stay relaxed and helped my aches and pains. I also made sure I regularly listened to her audio relaxations which helped me stay calm and grounded in those final weeks. Above all of this, Mandy has been a wonderful support and checked in with me after the birth of my daughter and during our hospital stay - Mandy really does go above and beyond and puts out some brilliant online content. I can't thank her enough!
I feel empowered as a pregnant woman and as a future mum
I signed up to the class to get to meet local expectant mums with the side benefit of a nice stretch. I did meet some lovely local mums and found it so helpful to have a space where you could talk about any issues and get advice or support. What really surprised me was how much I valued the yoga and stretching but mostly the breathing exercises. It gave me a toolkit of things to do during pregnancy and also in Labour and has made me feel excited for the birth! Mandy’s affirmations during the rest time have really spoken to me and made me feel empowered as a pregnant woman and as a future mum.
The class was so beneficial to me, to have a space just for me to enjoy my pregnancy and learn about the things I can do in birth to help it be a positive event. Thank you!
Absolutely love her classes
I returned to Mandy's pregnancy yoga classes following my second pregnancy as I absolutely loved her classes first time round and made some solid friendships.
Mandy creates such a welcoming and safe environment. She is passionate about ensuring mums and mums to be have a support network alongside the yoga which is so vital. Her classes provide opportunities for open discussion around pregnancy/childbirth/motherhood and no question is out of bounds!
Following the birth of my daughter, I went on to attend baby massage and baby yoga classes, both of which I can thoroughly recommend. Baby massage has given me some really helpful techniques to manage baby's trapped wind and has also helped me deepen the bond with my little ones. Baby yoga was surprisingly more relaxing than I expected! I have made some amazing friendships that have continued post classes. I would definitely recommend Mandy's classes. She is so honest and puts her heart and soul into her classes.
