Alexander Technique for
Pregnancy and Childbirth
Perhaps the biggest changes a woman goes through physically, psychologically and emotionally is when they become pregnant, give birth and after the birth process.

How the Alexander Technique has helped with Pregnancy
“I was learning how to incorporate the Alexander Technique into daily life. I learned how to use the technique into sitting, standing, walking, lifting things… Eight months ago, I become pregnant, as my tummy grows bigger and bigger each day, I have been arching my back and causing back pain and all kinds of other issues in my body. I have been experiencing a huge change in my whole body comparing to my first pregnancy that I haven’t started the lessons. I was more aware of how I stand and sit and how I should free my neck which lengthens my spine and widens my back. I feel so much easier and lighter with my body when I walk instead of feeling like I was holding more than 20 pounds extra weight in my tummy that arches my back and causing pains. With the whole pregnancy this time while taking the Alexander Technique, I was feeling so much better physically and emotionally as well. It was such a valuable experience which I would highly recommend Alexander Technique to all pregnant women!”
