Review quote

"Gabrielle Earls has blessed us with her book Birth in Awareness. It is

so very useful, practical and well done, that it makes my heart sing!

Folded in these pages is a perfect blend of the essential nature of yoga

for mothers, the science/anatomy of benefits, plus balancing of spirit.

Gabrielle brings her Doula skills to light by making the "How to"

so clear that mothers and teachers of yoga feel guided and supported

in their practice. The illustrations are simply wonderful. I am

"In this gem of a read, Gabrielle offers us not only an interesting and

informative handbook to navigate pregnancy, yoga and birthing for yoga

teachers but also a supportive roadmap for a mother-to-be on her journey.

Her own fascinating story is part of the wisdom she offers, and yet she

has an incredible ability to see everyone's journey and practice as unique

and their own. I've been blessed to have her input on many of my Yin

Yoga teacher trainings since she herself took the course. If you cannot

have her advice or support in person - then this is the next best thing!"
