Today we have a community birth story. I love sharing birth stories because they are inspiring and confidence building. Listening to different scenarios and various journeys, releases the idea that birth has to happen in one way. Today’s guest, Aly Grobeck, offers a wonderful story filled with humor and candidness. I really appreciate Aly sharing how important it was for her to listen to her body and stand up for herself throughout her experience. This is something we talk about in yoga, learning how to listen to your body’s cues, so that when you are in labor, you have the awareness to do what is best for you and your baby.
On this episode of Yoga|Birth|Babies, we welcome Aly Grobeck, one of our PYC students. She was born and raised in NYC on the upper west side. She is now preparing to go back to her digital marketing job in the beauty industry after six months of maternity leave.
Aly would like to encourage expecting parents to birth with courage and know that they are strong enough to navigate whatever choices they make. She also says that the period after baby is born may be hard, but it does get easier. She tells parents not to lose hope if circumstances don’t unfold the way they expect. She remembers the “dark days,” however, she says those are far behind her now. I appreciate Aly’s open and honest conversation with me. I admire how she was able to take charge of her own birth and listen to her body. I am honored to have Aly be part of our community and share her inspiring birth story.
