Our Self-Care Yoga program led by SHAREing & CAREing Program Manager Merryl Reichbach, LCSW, who is also an ACE-Personal Trainer and Cancer Exercise Specialist, provides an opportunity for mothers, babies and friends to relax together and learn stretches, meditation, and breathing techniques that they can use in their busy lives to help manage stress.
SHAREing & CAREing programs promote breast health and self-care across the lifespan. We know that breast health and self-care look different at various stages of life. The mother who is supported when she is engaged in the intense caregiving role of breastfeeding, is more likely to engage in the self-care required for prioritizing regular ob-gyn appointments and in mammography screenings when she is appropriate for them.
A big thanks goes to the NYC Health + Hospitals/Elmhurst Hospital WIC Program’s Maime Café Breastfeeding Support Group, who will be hosting our free yoga program as part of their support group offerings. The Maime Café is open to mothers looking to connect with other mothers. They meet every Tuesday from 3-5 pm for breastfeeding support.
