☀ Happy Monday, everyone! ☀

Today marks the start of Maternal Mental Health Awareness Week 2022, and we couldn't be more passionate about this subject.

Around 20% of women go through perinatal mental illness and, according to a survey by the Perinatal Mental Health Partnership, many feel unable to seek treatment due to perceived stigma.

Pregnant women and mothers need support, and this year's theme - ❤ The Power of Connection ❤ - reminds us how important it is to find and nurture strong links in our community to support each other, and to share spaces where we can feel safe to talk about the challenges of motherhood and how it may affect our mental health.

If you are a mother, you might like to know that we offer 3 free drop-in groups where you can find open-minded and caring peer support:
💕 Motherspace, on Mondays, 2.30-4.30pm
💕 Breastfeeding Support Group on Wednesdays, 10am-12pm
💕 Motherwalk, on Thursdays, 11am-12.30pm on the Meadows

Our Yoga for Pregnancy groups are also a great place to form new friendships in pregnancy, and each session includes time to discuss any challenges you may find during this time, in a safe and supportive environment.

We're always here for you, mothers. You're not alone and support is available ❤


Open til 29th April, this anonymous survey is to help NHS Lothian develop services supporting parents who have difficulties in their relationship with their baby.

NHS Lothian are developing the services that support parents who have difficulties in their relationship with their baby.

They would like to hear from you if you have experienced such difficulties and have received help or tried to get help from NHS or other services.

The survey is anonymous and will be open until 29th April.

Thank you for your help ❤

Wondering about doing a Baby First Aid Workshop? Here's an opportunity to sample this & meet the lovely lady who runs them ☺💕


Spaces in our upcoming classes ...
And although getting together over Zoom seems such a poor substitute for being together in one room, mothers who started on Zoom way back in May/June of last year with tiny babies have found enough enjoyment & support that they are still coming, through a wonderful period when we could meet at our new PPC, & even now that we're back in Zoomland - looking forward to seeing you next week :)💕

Our Yoga for Babies classes are resuming online as from next week. We are running a group for over four months and under four months - get in touch with us if you are interested in some sessions to keep you going this month.

Christmas Yoga 26/12/2020

At this time, which for many means special times with family & friends, as well as warmth, nourishment & perhaps some sparkle, I hope you & your wee ones have been able to be with dear others; & sending love to you all especially those more on your own.

I’d like to share with you a delightful video made by my longstanding yoga student, Jenny Newland who was a counsellor at the PPC for some years & before that was PPC coordinator. You’ll recognise Tree Pose & the video also features a seasonal favourite in my general classes, Skating Minister Pose, inspired by the painting in the National Gallery of Scotland.
I hope it may bring a smile & some sparkle to you as it did to me.😊❤️💕

Christmas Yoga My Christmas animated greeting is inspired by Andrea St Clair's Yoga classes in Edinburgh. We ( her pupils) have been fortunate enough to be able to attend…


A lovey poem so apt for our times :)

Lockdown Baby
I had a babe in lockdown
It’s been a funny year.
It feels like someone wrote it,
After they’d had too much beer
As Boris locked the country down,
My cervix was dilating.
It opened as the country closed,
It didn’t feel like waiting
I pushed her into a new world
It really was bizarre
We didn’t have a visitor
Till we left in the car
My parents couldn’t come up
So they could lend a hand
Food shopping was rationed.
And visiting was banned
The news each day was really bleak
But still the baby grew
She learnt to smile and laugh and crawl
Despite what we’d been through
Her baby classes were on Zoom
She seemed to have a ball.
She giggled at the camera
And she loved a video call
She didn’t bat an eyelid
At all the PPE
Or that she had to spend her time,
Alone inside with me
I think that we could learn a thing
From brand new human beings
They seem to find the love and fun
In all that they are seeing
I thought this year would be so tough
And hard times, there’ve been plenty
But kick ass lockdown babies
You’ve made our 2020
Zoe King

IMPORTANT: ~ Leave babies & small childrens' faces clear.

Please share this - thankyou ❤️

We received a report today directly from a meeting of health visiting leaders that staff are witnesing more babies wearing face coverings.

We understand that families may be anxious about being out in public places or travelling on public transport. Advice about facecoverings for older children and adults does NOT apply to those under 5 years of age.

It is DANGEROUS for babies and toddlers to have their faces covered. There is a suffocation risk when their small airways are covered.

PLEASE DON'T use face coverings on your baby or toddler.


Now taking bookings for our summer classes for you to nourish yourselves & baby with yoga & connect - albeit over Zoom! - with other mothers 😊❤️

With summer approaching, we are delighted to share our new Yoga with Babies (online) classes on various Tuesdays throughout July and August. £30 for the block - and we have concessions if that is helpful to you - get in touch with us for more information!


Coming up next week - do pass the word around as these workshops are an invaluable preparation with your birth partner 😊❤️

Our next Active Birth Workshop online will run on Sunday 28th June 2020 from 9.30am to 1pm, and on Sunday 12th July from 9.30am to 1pm!
