A massage therapist for 21 years and a yoga teacher for sixteen, I have owned and run the Bella Mama Pregnancy Spa & Wellness Centre since 2005.   My lifes work is supporting mothers, babies and families throughout the joyous yet challenging time that is the childbirth year.  My wish is that all mothers throughout the world are supported, honored and cared for so that they can do the important work of nurturing and loving their children.  It is my belief that mothers and babies who are born into a space of peace, love and respect will in turn bring that into the world, changing it for the better.

… our little Mackenzie was born at 7:05pm… what a FANTASTIC experience!! The breathing techniques practised in yoga were an invaluable tool that I used throughout my labour, and I’m certain they helped me to avoid an epidural and other intervention. THANK YOU Jo… yoga helped to make my birth experience an incredibly positive one!

I started Jo’s pregnancy yoga classes when I was 17 wks pregnant with our first baby. These classes became quintessential to my pregnant self. Jo’s knowledge on everything pregnancy related was so valuable. I loved being able to share my aches and pains with the other mums and benefit from the experience of others. These classes taught me so much more than yoga. They gave me confidence that my body was capable of the miracle of birth, I just had to learn to listen to it. Of course doing yoga till I was ready to give birth helped with my mobility and flexibility. Thank you so much Jo for your warmth and passion.
