In this thought provoking presentation Prenatal Yoga Teacher, Yoga Therapist and Clinical Counsellor Fiona Donohoe-Bales will examine the effects of the Coronavirus pandemic on new mothers and explore how prenatal yoga teachers can play a key role in helping identify, prevent and manage mental health challenges in this vulnerable and often high-risk population.
Fiona will also discuss what is within the yoga teacher’s Scope of Practice and when, where and how to refer on to other health professionals.”
Perinatal mental health and wellbeing is at an all time low. After two long years of a grinding, interminable global pandemic new mothers are now experiencing unprecedented levels of stress, distress, anxiety, panic and depression. Rather than joyful anticipation, expectant mothers are arriving at the doors of motherhood feeling increasingly overwhelmed and under-resourced for the challenges and demands that lie before them.
