Hayley Tillard is a qualified prenatal and postpartum yoga teacher, motherhood educator, and mum to two little boys. 

I had some challenges in my first pregnancy

Read My Story: Part 1

I suffered from painful pregnancy conditions like sciatica, pelvic girdle pain, and back pain and was told by health professionals to put up with it as a normal part of pregnancy. It seemed like no one took the time to listen to my experiences or guide me through these challenges. 

I wanted to exercise for both my body and mind, but I didn’t know how to move safely – for myself or my baby.

As a new mum, I didn’t take the time to properly rest and recover after birth. I struggled with perfectionism, postpartum anxiety, and postpartum depletion. I felt isolated, like I was shouldering the mental load of parenting alone, and had lost my identity.

It was only after reaching breaking point that I made changes and prioritised my needs. I began to heal and learn the traditional ways women can actually thrive as new mothers instead of being physically and emotionally eroded – something we’ve largely ignored in Western society. 

It’s from these challenges and lessons that prompted me to train in prenatal and postnatal yoga and mentor women through pregnancy and postpartum, holistically guiding women through the transition to motherhood. Armed with knowledge of the pregnant and postpartum body, ancient wisdom, and my experience as a modern mother, I educate women on the lessons we should have grown up learning, like matrescence, nervous system regulation, and the fourth trimester.

Mothers aren’t meant to walk this path alone.
