Why train with Yana after birth?

Pregnancy brings many physiological, mental and emotional changes to the body. Training with someone who is knowledgeable about the pregnant/postpartum body is essential. After 10 months of extreme change in the body, the postpartum body has to heal and regain stability, strength and vitality. The focus in postpartum training is to address strength and stability issues in the core and pelvic floor muscles. It also feels good to move and increase circulation in the body. Key areas that we focus on is pelvic floor conditioning, abdominal recovery and increasing cardiorespiratory fitness.

Benefits of participating in group exercise postpartum

  • Regain core strength and stability
  • Reduction in back and shoulder injury from carrying baby by learning correct lifting techniques and improving upper body strength
  • Reduction of stress & increase mood
  • Speed up post-birth recovery
  • Increase in much-needed energy
  • Helps to reduce postnatal depression
  • Create a community of mothers/babies

“Imagine what it feels like to feel confident going into labour and welcoming your baby in a supportive & loving environment”

People have different wants and needs when it comes to giving birth. My role as your birth doula is to help you navigate and explore all the different options out there and help you make well-informed choices.

As your doula, I will honor your birth vision and personal beliefs with no judgement. This is your birth and this is your baby.

Doula in San FranciscoWho am I?

Hi! I am Yana and I am a birth and postpartum doula, a yoga teacher, a personal trainer and also a fellow mama. I am a Singaporean living in San Francisco with my husband and son. My son’s birth is an integral part to why I am a doula. Giving birth to him has been such a transformative experience that I feel like I was reborn. It is as if I  see the world from a different pair of lens once I become a mother.

As soon I found out  I was expecting, I became more aware of everything that is happening inside and outside my body. Like every mother out there, I wanted the best for my child even before he was born. I believe in birth stories and I believe that every child born into this world deserve to have supportive, loving and warm hands to welcome them. My experience giving birth, breastfeeding and mothering have further fueled my passion for this work. I want to empower you by providing emotional, informational support and physical comfort. I will be very honored to support your birth.
