Birthlight's thoughts on biological nurturing approach to feeding?

Aurea Kelvin's picture


I've been on the postnatal course recently and we covered the topic of the aligned postnatal sitting position today and while I was reviewing it today, it occurred to me that it sounds like we, in our role as Birthlight teachers, don't promote the biological nurturing or laid-back breastfeeding approach to feeding.  What is the Birthlight standpoint on laid-back breastfeeding? Is it  seen as not as good for realignment postnatally? Or is it seen as equally good because it encourages relaxation of the mother's body? Thanks!

Beware of Phishing Emails / Baby Yoga Video on FB

Dear all,
Sophos Security has informed us that there is an increase in phishing emails with PayPal and Apple phishing emails as the top 2 most used phishing emails.  If you did not expect to receive an email or if you do not know the sender then be suspicious especially if the email asks you to open an attachment or to click on a link. (more: ).  Then it is most likely an email which is going to unload malware onto your computer as soon as you open the attachment or click the link.  So my advice : leave it alone and don't touch it.

Btw Sophos also weighed in on the Baby Yoga Video on Facebook that caused people worldwide to be distressed at what they saw:

helping babies sleep better with yoga and other ideas -class topic

Aurea Kelvin's picture


My baby yoga class is interested in having sleep as a topic this week. I don't usually have a theme, so I have a few  questions:

1. Other than the suggestions in the course manual ( gentle hip sequence in early evening, energetic actions to extend playtime, and joint relaxation), do you have any baby yoga techniques that you suggest to help sleep? Are there specific hip sequences that are better than others?

2. Do you have any suggestions on how to help babies sleep that are not from yoga, but are in keeping with the Birthlight philosophy?
