Suzanne has just returned from the National CAPEA (Childbirth & Parenting Education Australia) Conference in Melbourne where she presented Active Birth Skills to Midwives from across Australia.Read More
I couldn’t attend any other antenatal classes, so I relied on the information I received in your classes, from my midwife and from the book Gentle Birth, Gentle Mothering. I researched enough to have an "ideal birth intention" written down in bullet points on a page (not a "plan" as nothing ever goes to plan!).Read More
Suzanne was interviewed recently by ABC News, following a study in The Lancet Medical Journal about obesity and nutrition in women during pregnancy, and why changes need to be made during pre-conception.Read More

just wanted to let you know I had my baby girl on the 12th of April!
I've been coming to pregnancy yoga with Lauren on Tuesdays since I was 12 weeks and I almost completed two rounds of active birth with Lauren. My partner and I came for a private session with Suzanne as well.Read More
Introducing our son Wyatt who joined the world on 24/01/2018 (4 days before his due date) at 4.27pm weighing in at 7lbs 2oz.
It was a marathon effort to bring him into the world! Our naughty wee monkey had been happily hanging out head down....Read More
Our gorgeous little Freddie (Wilfred James) arrived in the morning on Sunday 17th September, 10 days post EDD! I was fortunate enough to go into spontaneous labour (yay!) and the birth was a positive experience but as with most births, didn't go exactly to plan!Read More
Baby Aerin Audrey arrived 5/2/18, 40 weeks 2 days after a very quick 2 hour labour. 8lbs 5oz. Breathing techniques and yoga positions were absolutely invaluable! Second time around I was much more aware of the experience.Read More
Our baby girl Lola, was born on 16 February weighing in at 9.2 pounds. She was 10 days over the due date in the end.
The doctors were keen to do an earlier induction as she was going to be a "big" baby but given all I had learnt in the active birth classes.Read More
I am excited to be presenting at this year's Yoga Australia Conference in Melbourne from 16th-18th March. Yoga continues to spread and evolve, accelerating at a pace never witnessed before through the marriage of traditional practice with the technologies of the modern day.Read More
Pacha Light was one of yogababy's first babies. In early 2000 when I was studying Childbirth Education & Prenatal Yoga with Jane Campbell-Kaye in Brisbane, I travelled to South America to help my bestfriend, Anja Light, bring Pacha into the world - at her home in the mountains of Ecuador. I taught her yoga techniques to stay peaceful and relaxed during labour.Read More
I felt calm about it all and was able to resolve any feelings of disappointment before hand. I think your classes were invaluable. Any learning/knowledge about the body and pregnancy prior to birth is so helpful.Read More
Yes, the wonderful Spinning Babies founder Gail Tully is gracing us down under. To share her profound wisdom on helping ALL babies be born optimally! I have been following Gail's work as creator of www.Spinningbabies.com for many years and some of the techniques I teach in class come from this wonderful source.Read More
Our little girl Amber decided to come early, she came to the world very peacefully, naturally and in water and has continued on to be a very peaceful baby. She's quite little as she was born at 37 weeks but she's healthy and we're both doing well. The active birthing classes were very useful. The breathing helped me through for a natural birth.Read More
I am very happy to announce you the birth of baby boy Matteo on the 26th of December, 2017. 3.7 kg. Beautiful baby who was born very quickly after only 2.5 hrs and 8 minutes of pushing! We arrived just on time at the hospital! Labour went very well thanks to breathing, counting the breaths, vocalisation, etc so thank you so much for your help again in this birth. And see you soon at baby yoga!Read More
If you are already in a routine with your yoga class before you become pregnant, it is not uncommon to want to stay in that class for as long as possible.

However, if you are still attending your general yoga class, here are five things to consider during pregnancy:Read More
So you’ve covered pregnancy in your teacher training course, or maybe you’ve even been pregnant before, but can you remember what to say in the 5 minutes you have with her before class begins?
This is especially important if your pregnant student is under 14 weeks or over 36 weeks. Here's a refresher on some key points to remember:Read More
