West End Mamas

30.7.19


33 weeks pregnant! Isn't that crazy? I feel like it was two months ago when I peed on a stick and saw that little positive sign. But that was actually in the beginning of January! So here I am now seven weeks away from meeting our little girl. This pregnancy has been very different from my pregnancy with Julien. I felt great from day one and was doing spin classes twice a week until 36 weeks. This pregnancy on the other hand, it started out rough! I was feeling violently hungover on a daily basis for 12-13 weeks accompanied by migraines, which usually resulted in... well, I'll spare you the gory details. Aside from that horrible first trimester, I also have a 30+ pound two year old who makes me chase him endlessly and wants to be carried 15 times a day. Circumstances are definitely different this time around! However,  I'm feeling great and I wanted to share with you one of the major reasons as to why that is.

I started going to West End Mamas back in May. It is the greatest resource for all things pre and post baby (they even have services for your fertility journey!!). It's a wellness clinic that focuses on the well being of a mama. West End Mamas offer prenatal and postnatal care for moms and moms-to-be. Everyone's pregnancy is different and they are dedicated to making your journey the best it can possibly be for you. They offer an amazing amount of services and classes from acupuncture, pelvic floor physiotherapy, chiropractic care, doula services, breastfeeding support, counselling and so much more. And let me tell you, I've been reaping the benefits!


I was never much of a yoga person, but I started feeling very tight and a bit uncomfortable in my body, to be honest. So I went in for a prenatal yoga class at the Bloor West Village location and it was just what I needed. Like one of those moments you didn't realize what you needed, but then you got it and it felt oh so good. When I started getting lower back pain, I decided to see Dr. Roy at the York Region location for chiropractic care. I have to stress to you that I had never done anything like this; never had any chiro, physio, acupuncture, nothing of that nature. She quickly came to the realization that my pelvis was uneven and was the cause of my back pain and it was all on the up and up from there. I've also received the best massages of my life at West End Mamas. The type where you do not want to get up fro the table when your 60 or 90 minutes is over. It's amazing how good you feel once you let professionals do what they do.

As moms and moms-to-be, the greatest thing you can do for yourself and for your family is to take care of you. I can't recommend West End Mamas enough! If you are in the Greater Toronto Area, you must check them out. They have two locations, one on Bloor West and one in York Region (see details here). They also have an amazing online booking system which makes life just a little easier. Pregnancy is a beautiful process, but there are definitely some not so fun things that come with it. So why not make that process just a little more joyful, pain free, and stress free? Check out all West End Mamas has to offer here!
