• hello mama!



    How are you?


    You are amazing. You grew a whole new person!

    But I get it, you're tired, sometimes touched-out and and maybe it might even feel like your body's not quite your own right now?


    If you're in need of some space to reconnect with your body, you're in the right place.

  • what others say about classes...

    postnatal classes with Emilie, the body doula


    - Frome

      'Just wanted to say that your yoga session was so good last night, just what I needed after a particularly low day. I slept so well and feel so much better today.


    Was nice to get some 'me' time again especially in isolation. '


    - Mum to Isla (4) and Niamh (4 months)

    "It’s a really lovely class, yoga for the mums with lots of stretches, and she tailors the class to what we need.


    I’d happily recommend it to others. "


    - Brighton

    “Thanks for your time and lovely attention.
    I really enjoyed the whole class, especially because it had a bit of everything, it wasn’t only yoga and exercise.


    After the class, I felt very relaxed.”


    - Frome

    'I love the postnatal classes as it gives me a little time each week to reconnect to my body and breathing. Emilie has a really calming presence and is great with both mums and babies.

    Highly recommended '

  • Booking



    Times are odd at the moment.


    I want to find the best ways to support you through these changes as well as the ones in your own life, so for now this is currently less than half price.




    Normally it will be £39 a month for the live classes, circle calls, private forum and online library.


    During lockdown it's £15 a month for the same access.





    Normally £59 a month for everything in the standard membership, plus a monthly 30 minute 1-2-1 call to help you set goals, find ways to approach movement or check in on diastasis recti or pelvic floor stuff.


    Lockdown price is a bargainatious - £39


    Because you're actually worth a lot more than that, but for now... I'd love to have you join us.
