Several of us took prenatal yoga classes at Prenatal Yoga Center. and formed special bonds with the studio, giving it a special place in our hearts and memories.  The Center’s goal is to maintain a comfortable and contemplative environment for pregnant women and their families and is the perfect partner for Listen to Your Mother NYC.

If you’re looking for a prenatal yoga studio, look no further.  Prenatal Yoga Center is the first yoga center in New York City to focus on moms and moms-to-be. Over the past 9 years, over 8000 women have come through their door to take classes and workshops. Based on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, they offer Prenatal Yoga, Postnatal Yoga, Mommy and Me, Infant Massage, Baby Sign Language and Music for Babies. They also offer Moms-to-Be and New Moms Support Groups as well as a variety of events and workshops including Childbirth Education, Infant CPR and Safety, Partner Yoga & Massage, Caring for Newborn and Breastfeeding.

They also have a robust community online with Free Yoga Video, Deb’s Blog, a Nanny Exchange, Doctor Exchange, NYC Resources, Ask the Experts, and a Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training.  As a resource center, they provide information and education for new parents as their family expands, offering various workshops and lectures that addresses common issues related to pregnancy, early childhood parenting, family dynamics and alternative healing.

We’ve also partnered up with the Upper Breast Side, New York City’s first breastfeeding resource center and the largest hospital-grade breast pump rental station.   It’s a New York institution and is the perfect fit with our show.

The Upper Breast Side is an ideal resource for locating all the spare and extra parts and pieces for abreast pump.  They offer the largest selection of the best nursing bras, largest collection of American-made and European nursing attire.  They sell and rent Medela and Ameda breast pumps. The Upper Breast Side is the only retailer in New York to carry Boob Design, a popular Swedish brand.They also have weekly group intensive latch-on clinic conducted by a board-certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC).  They even have certified bra fitters on staff.

In addition to selling gear, the Upper Breast Side refers customers to lactation consultants and doctors; hosts a weekly “latch-on clinic” for women struggling to get their babies to, well, latch on; and matches up customers with properly fitting bras. At a counter referred to as the “milk bar,” bleary-eyed new mothers and their partners learn how to work a pump (the session is free if they buy one, $50 if not).

The Upper Breast Side is located at 135 West 70th Street  New York, NY 10023 and be reached at 212-873-2653.

The Upper Breast Side and the Prenatal Yoga Center were both so helpful during my transition to motherhood. I actually went to the Prenatal Yoga Center throughout all three of my pregnancies, and met one of my closest friends (to this day) there doing partner massage techniques on each other’s third-trimester sciatica! They’re two total institutions for NYC moms, especially those of us on the Upper West Side. So happy to have you both as sponsors!

I also met a very good friend at the Prenatal Yoga Center and loved their pre-natal and mommy and me classes. I even shlepped from Westchester when my daughter was born, I liked it so much.
