New Share - Positive Psychology for Wellbeing Online Prenatal Class

By Midwife of Changes Leader April 7, 2012 - 2:20pm

Hi everyone - It has been awhile since I posted here. Life happens to us all - employment changes, a concussion and a little hyperthyroidism.
Resilience happens - and I wanted to share my latest SHARE on the positive psychology for wellbeing online prenatal class blog that I just posted - http://www.empowher.com/community/share/positive-psychology-wellbeing-on...
I welcome your ideas about the course . . . I will be designing other cost-effective women's health related to positive psychology in the next few months. Please stay tuned! And welcome, everyone, to this group!

Susan - So true. And exercise is also when we are more engaged in life, and happier. Exercise in the morning for at least 20 minutes raises mood for several hours. I am building the class to help women find the path that works for them through group coaching and quality information on alternatives! The link for registration should be up early next week!

Hi Cathy

Great ideas here on your SHARE.

I think it's really important to emphasize exercise as something that should be in everyone's pregnancy plan (with exceptions for those who cannot for medical reasons or with physical limitations, of course).

I swam laps until I was nearly 9 months pregnant and it is great for the body, keeps arms and legs lean and is really good for one's emotional well-being as well as being low impact. And since we weight only 10% of our real body weight in water, we can be very heavily pregnant and still feel like a feather while swimming. Not to mention looking super cute in a swimsuit! Suck in our baby belly? I don't think so!

Of course there is also yoga, and other work outs. It's good for baby and mom, and our bodies will thank us during those post-partum months where we feel so blah when it comes to our bodies.

Best,

~Susan
