Over the past few months, I have had the privilege of working with a lovely couple called Shanna and Sandy Beales who are expecting their first baby in June. As part of the wellbeing packages I offer, I gave Shanna a pregnancy yoga and massage session and then the three of us had a Birth Preparation Workshop that I run for couples.
Both times, I left the sessions uplifted, joyful and with a feeling of what an absolute honour and privilege it is to do the work I do.
Why? Because when I work with couples like Shanna and Sandy, I genuinely feel that I am in the presence of love.
Having a baby is a miraculous process. Not just because it reminds us of how clever and amazing women, nature and creation are, but because that there this is this new little person who will be coming into the world. And she has been created out of love. Out of the union of two people for whom there is no greater commitment or sign of togetherness than to create a child out of their two halves.
It never fails to inspire and move me. The excitement, the hope, the anticipation, the happiness at no longer just being a couple but a family. It’s simply wonderful and fills me with so much love and joy as well.
Just being there and being able to contribute in some way and make a difference, makes me so happy and it really is an honour to be part of that journey. Thank you Shanna and Sandy. It was a pleasure to work with you and I can’t wait to meet little baby Beale when she arrives.

“Justina from made us feel so much more prepared as parents. Her fun and easy manner made even talking about the scary parts of giving birth seem not as daunting. She empowered us not just as individuals, but as a couple. Each section of the session was well thought out and planned. The dad tips were great, especially the ones regarding supporting your partner during labour. Her suggestions would make any dad feel like they can have a huge and useful role in the labor process.”
“I was a bit hesitant to do a yoga session as a I hadn’t exercised throughout my entire pregnancy. However, with the guidance and nurturing of justina I was able to easily do all the poses and feel energized and relaxed after. All the poses and techniques she taught me have made the rest of my pregnancy smoother. The pregnancy massage I was given by justina after the yoga helped me relax even more. She does everything she can to make you feel at ease. We are so grateful for Justina!”
