Why I Chose Every Mother Counts

I have been increasingly inspired to come up with new ways to actively support other women and Mamas here locally and around the world and lately have been seeing the following quote everywhere:

"I am not free while any woman is unfree, even when her shackles are very different from my own." - Audre Lord

How true that statement is.... We are only as strong as the collective whole and when the collective whole is suffering we all suffer.  I feel so fortunate to be a part of OhmMother Yoga who brings so much good to prenatal and post-natal mommas. I always wonder though how can we take it a step further? There are so many women around the world who don't even have access to any sort of prenatal care let alone a prenatal yoga class.

Many of us are so fortunate to never have to question our access to quality prenatal healthcare or wonder if we'll be able to have a safe childbirth. However, many women around the world and even right here in our own country cannot afford or don't have access to the quality care they need, and often don't even have access to the bare essentials. It's absolutely heartbreaking to know that to so many women around the world pregnancy can be a death sentence.

The OhmMother Donation Yoga Class is a just a small way to actively support these fellow mommas. Our Donation Yoga class proceeds will ALL be going to an AMAZING organization called Every Mother Counts. The mission of Every Mother Counts is to try to make Pregnancy and Childbirth safe for every mother in the US and around the world. 

I REALLY REALLY love seeing women come together to support one another in Prenatal yoga classes and am so thankful to Liz for allowing us to hold this donation class at OhmMother Yoga so that our support can extend beyond our sweet yoga studio.

This yoga class will be prenatal and beginner friendly. Our class theme and practice will focus on empowerment and trusting in our own strength and magic we have within us as women! I'd be so honored if you'd join me for this class and hope to see you there

Thank you,

Abbey
