A specialist pregnancy yoga teacher and mother-of-two, I have created The Pregnancy and Birth Colouring Book with Yoga Nidra to provide a reflective space for your pregnancy and to prepare for the birthing journey and the arrival of your baby.
There are 15 images on thick 130mg paper for a lovely colouring experience. I suggest using fine tipped felt tip pens. The book is spiral bound to lay flat while colouring and so that you can easily remove pages if you would like to put them around your home in the weeks leading up to the birth.
The positive words surrounding the mandalas reinforce the images of natural, active birth. The Yoga Nidra (relaxation) scripts allow you to embed the concept of birth as a natural, instinctive process, with downloads of Tessa talking you through the specially constructed yoga nidras available through the book.
“This amazing colouring book offers pregnant women the perfect aid to positive visualisation for the pregnancy, birth and beyond. The drawings are beautiful and a truly inspired idea. I can see this being used widely to help mothers feel positively about their pregnancy and life ahead.“ Katie Bettle, NHS midwife, St Thomas Hospital, London
“This book gives a mama time for herself to relax while focusing on the beautiful aspects of pregnancy and birth. This is also essential for mamas with young children. Sitting and colouring these powerful pictures infiltrates to the inner layers of the mind: a powerful tool for positive birth.“ Grace Collins, Doula, Breastfeeding counsellor & Positive Birth group leader
“This is such a lovely idea, encouraging pregnant women to find time to relax. Tessa has a wonderful way of helping you to relax, and the drawings and affirmations in this gorgeous colouring book will give mothers positive reminders of how beautiful birth can be.”
Linda Cook, National Childbirth Trust teacher, doula & birth art group facilitator
