We caught up with the Prenatal Yoga Center’s Founder & Director Deb Flashenberg about what to know about this top-tier resource for local parents.

What should expectant and new parents know about you and your business?

Pregnancy and the transition to parenthood is difficult for many, no need to go through it on your own. Prenatal Yoga Center is here to hold space for you as you grow into this new role of parent. We hear and see the challenges you face with physical and emotional discomforts of pregnancy and the postpartum period. We offer yoga to help bring more ease to your body and mind and preparing you for a more comfortable pregnancy and helping you heal and strengthen postpartum.

What’s new in (in the past year) with your business?

In the past year, I’ve shifted the focus of my podcast Yoga | Birth | Babies to include more community birth stories. I’ve found it very powerful to have new parents share their birth experiences. By having community members discus the details of their recent births we’re able to take the image of birth out from preconceived ideas of birth fed to us through movies, TV, and media and see birth as a more human, relatable experience.

I’ve also expanded my offerings training yoga teachers around the world to help provide safe vinyasa classes for the pregnant body in an open level class. For any yoga teachers out there my class is called “Who’s Afraid of the Pregnant Yogi.”

Which topics do you enjoy connecting with new and expectant parents about most?

I really enjoy talking to expectant parents about finding autonomy in their births. One should not have to ask their care provider how they should birth, “Am I allowed to…” I am also very committed to teaching about a healthy, balanced pelvis, pelvic floor and pelvic ligaments. When there is balance in the pelvis, there is more chance of the baby being better aligned which can lead to a more functional birth.
