Weekly Pregnancy/Baby Update
Baby has likely returned to their birth weight – it is typical for a baby to lose about 10% of their birth weight, but they should gain it back around 2 weeks old.

Chair – eagle arms
Continue exploring your chair practice with eagle arms. Inhale, open the arms wide to the side, exhale wrap the arms around one another and hold. This pose can be helpful for stiffness from leaning over and feeding baby all day
Recommended Yoga Class
This is a quick prenatal yoga flow made for the first trimester (appropriate for all trimesters, with necessary modifications – listen to your body!). This is great for when you need to feel grounded – get into some child’s pose and cat/cow action here. As always – listen to your body! Our bodies change every day, so quickly, what feels good one day may not feel good the next. This is why I aim to create as many options as possible – hopefully you can find something here every day, no matter how you are feeling!
*I am constantly updating recommended classes as I add more yoga classes to my YouTube library! Check back often for updates!
**Every body, woman, practice, and pregnancy is different. If the suggested class for this week does not suit you this week for any reason, please feel free to look for a different one on my YouTube channel. Trust your body and listen to your birth team!
Write a love letter to yourself. You’ve done this beautiful, hard, amazing thing! Let yourself know how amazing you are and how you feel about yourself as a new mother. Your future self will thank you for this gift!
