Baby Harry - Leora Leboff's story of loss & loneliness

Baby Harry

Loneliness. It's been a recurrent theme since losing Baby Harry. From the moment I was told at my 20 week scan that my baby had a series of anomalies and that I may need to terminate the pregnancy. Not long after I knew I was expecting him, I had instinctively felt something wasn't quite right. However, it didn't make the process any less shocking as I wished at the time that my instincts had been completely wrong. When the anomaly midwife sat my husband and me down in a side room, I didn't know how to process the information I was receiving.

Sit Still and Listen

Sit still and listen. Hush – Silence – Stillness.

It is more difficult than people think.  Why is this so difficult? Spirit world do not understand.

But the distractions of your modern world infiltrate your entire being.  You constantly get bombarded by noise, heard and unheard.  24 hours of each and every day.  Exhaustion overloads your body.  Your world is under attack by forces that you allow to dominate.

Eliminate all or some of these aspects and you will feel refreshed less anxious and fearful.

Alpa's Birth Story

I had originally signed up for pregnancy yoga a couple of years ago, when I became pregnant with my first baby. I didn't manage to make it to a single class! I was always so sick or in hospital on a drip that I never even met Claire!

We finally met when I signed up for baby yoga after the traumatic birth of my first baby. Even after having written in red ink on the birth plan no
C-SECTION I ended up having a c-section! I was distraught, still I had a beautiful, happy baby.

The Power of Silence

Some years ago, Channel 4 ran  a series of programmes regarding silence.  It encouraged people from a variety of backgrounds to practice bringing an element of silence into their day.  They were taken to a monastery and were given much support in order to be able to engage in the practice once home.

 

It was an interesting opportunity to be a ‘fly on the wall’ to watch how others at times, struggled, with something that is on the surface, comparatively easy.

Birth Fears

Birth Fears - we all have them to a lesser or greater degree.  Often one of the first thoughts a woman has after finding out she is pregnant is to then have the thought, "Oh, I've got to go through labour."

In class I always say right at the top of the first session, if you have fears, you need to get them out in the open, talk about them, deal with them, otherwise they can get in the way of labour.

There is evidence which has shown that the more fearful a woman is in labour the longer and more painful the experience will be.

The Power of Pregnancy Yoga

As soon as a woman discovers she is pregnant, a whole new world opens up to her.  In the early stages it is the many changes your body goes through in a short space of time which can be quite overwhelming.  Without warning, you are feeling exhausted and possibly nauseous.  Then comes the myriad of appointments with doctors and midwives.  It’s a lot to take in, in a short period of time.
