Lindsey Weinstein, BA, CBE, E-RYT500, RPYT
Founder and Instructor
I was born into a family where birth was celebrated, honored, normalized and as kids we were invited into birth spaces by our elders. This I believe initiated my love and trust of birth, of birth givers and their babies, too. Eventually I had my own babies and experienced for myself how potent this time is and how it transformed me to my core. How it has influenced who I am, my health and my spirit in all ways, on all levels.
My life's work has always been rooted in caring for families. First I worked as a project specialist to create and develop state-wide, quality child care for low income and working families, then later, a homeschool teacher and a nanny. Currently I am a full time Mama, a Pre/Postnatal Yoga Teacher, a Birth Educator and an Ayurvedic Postpartum Care Giver.
I am passionate about working with pregnant and postpartum families and about the practice of yoga. I joined my two passions to create BellyFull Birth.
"I first met Lindsey in one of her prenatal yoga classes and felt instantly connected to the way she guided the practice. When I found out she was teaching a birth prep class I didn’t hesitate to sign up. I can say unequivocally that taking her class was the best decision we made to prepare us for labor and delivery. My husband and I learned so much from Lindsey – looking back it’s embarrassing how little we actually knew coming in! She gave us so much valuable practical information on the biology of birth, but beyond that she gave us the space to really explore what we wanted our birth experience to look like. Obviously there is a lot that is out of your control when your little one comes into the world, but there is so much that you do have control over and Lindsey does an incredible job making you feel empowered to maneuver those decisions. I thought about so many of the things she told us during my labor, and I know one of the biggest reasons we had such a positive birth experience was because of Lindsey. I can’t recommend her class enough!" ~ Ashley C.
"I wanted to let you know how powerful and informative our weekend intensive with you was. My partner & I really feel more informed and mentally geared up to face this beautiful journey together. Also you left us with many questions to investigate further and ponder our choices and I think that is the most invaluable. We have much work to do still in our final months but the way feels more clear! We are feeling more connected as a couple too. Thank you for creating the welcoming space and for your enthusiasm and passion for birth and helping couples prepare!" ~Lara
"Lindsey's class was amazing during my pregnancy and felt like a milestone each week when we went around and shared where we were in our journey. I always felt so energized and strong after the class. So thank you!!" ~ Diana C.
"I had a smooth, natural delivery. I attribute so much of that to yoga and your instruction specifically. So enjoyed taking your class!" ~D.S.
"I really believe the skills from your class helped me through birth, and I am so grateful for that." ~ Erin H.
"This class was an absolute joy! As a doula all the birth talk and prep that comes my way I soak up and enjoy. And now that I'm expecting myself this class was right up my ally. Birth prep incorporated in a prenatal yoga class ... HEAVEN. This birth prep class was the best of both worlds, without feeling like you were at a lecture you could get incredible informative lessons that would slowly transition into a beautifully nourishing yoga class. My only wish was that each class was longer and that it was an 8 week series vs. 4wks :) Each Saturday Lindsey helped us to physically, mentally and emotionally connect with our babies and bodies. I'd recommend this yoga birth prep series for every pregnant women." ~ Aaryn L.
"Lindsey is incredible. My husband and I saw her the week before our baby was due. She gave us terrific tips, walked us through how to best position ourselves for birth at the hospital, poses and massage techniques. I left our session with more knowledge than I anticipated and in a great mindset for birth. She taught us about affirmations, ways the days can really help and was very prepared. I still think back on our session and am SO glad we did it. This was in addition do every CPMC training and was the perfect final compliment. Her info wasn't redundant and my husband had a great time. Book her!" ~Julie V.
"Incredible yoga practice to prepare for birth! Lindsey creates an amazing space to practice prenatal yoga by bringing a lightness and excitement to the practice. Her knowledge & passion for teaching were evident with each class." ~Jaclyn K.
