"I’m so grateful I had Andrea as my doula. She was able to provide me with the essential education and preparation required for planning for an unmedicated birth. Having her at my birth was so helpful, as she knew how to support me in the ways I needed, that my husband just wouldn’t have known how, because she has the experience. She coached my husband to help in the best ways he could throughout labor as well. Having someone passionate about birth and experienced made me feel the safety and confidence I needed, to have the birth I wanted to have. She created the ideal environment for me. Birth is challenging so having a doula is essential for helping it be as good of an experience as possible. I highly recommend hiring Andrea as your doula!"

One of the most miraculous experiences is the gift of birthing a child. During these weeks of growing a baby, a woman wants to feel strong, supple, intuitive, relaxed, supported, and prepared. The womb-life and first three years of life set the entire life's course. Through conscious pregnancy and gentle birthing, we set the foundation for life-long health and happiness in a child. Conscious mothers and protecting babies are perhaps the greatest way we can help bring peace to the world. Come to be with other expecting moms throughout pregnancy, practicing yoga and meditation, while you experience
the enormous physical, emotional and spiritual changes that prepare you to welcome another soul!
"Andrea is committed to empowering mamas-to-be. I attended many of Andrea’s prenatal yoga classes throughout pregnancy. Wow! Andrea is the real deal when it comes to prenatal yoga teachers! We sang to our babies, learned how to use a breast pump, practiced infant massage, learned our rights when it comes to birthing in a hospital, and covered a great myriad of valuable topics. We also moved a lot during class and learned which postures were helpful for specific ailments (like easing low back pain, reducing swelling, etc). Many of the movements were embodied in order to engender specific outcomes (like building endurance, clearing negativity, and opening our heart, to name a few). During one class, I learned that Andrea is also a doula for pregnant women! I immediately jumped on board, and boy oh boy, am I glad that I did!" - Suzanne Cabaniss
"Prenatal Yoga with Andrea has been an absolutely wonderful experience. Pregnant with our first little one, I started the class at 12 weeks and continue to attend at 38 weeks. The inclusion of breath-work, meditation, asana, and specific practices for labor along with related discussion provides an open, comfortable and safe space for us mamas to embrace our experience - as is - no filter, no judgment. Andrea's passion and knowledge in regard to yoga, pregnancy and birthing along with her grounding presence creates an inspiring and fulfilling space to which I return to over and over - even through discomfort or fatigue. I thoroughly have and continue to appreciate this time and space to celebrate the incredible miracle of growing another human being." - Stacy Peth
"Prenatal yoga at Satsang is not just about aiding the physical body during pregnancy. Not only did my body feel less tense and strained but I felt more connected with my baby. I miss prenatal classes and the support and relationships made with the other moms! Truly a comforting experience that I recommend to any expecting mother, yogi or not." - Lauren S.
"Prenatal yoga with Andrea was my favorite self care activity while pregnant. Andrea fostered a welcoming, inclusive community by encouraging moms to experience the beauty of birth through the historical abundance of practical knowledge and spiritual wisdom. Yoga practices were gentle and fully accommodating to my growing belly. I left every class with my heart full and a great sense of peace." - Sara S.
"Prenatal yoga with Andrea is a wonderful way to prepare your body, mind and soul for the miracle of childbirth. She is a wealth of knowledge in the areas of yoga, pregnancy, and childbirth and she shares so much wisdom during each class. I looked forward to every class and always left feeling empowered, peaceful, stronger, and more informed. I highly recommend making prenatal yoga with Andrea part of your weekly pregnancy routine!"- Randi S.
