Dr Eline Pedersen Doctor of Chiropractic Honoris Cause Doctorate of Humanity” specializing in Leadership (AUGP) Initiator and President of NGO “Birth Forward” Dr Eline Pedersen fundamentally believes in nature’s way of adapting to every aspect of life. As a wellness family chiropractor she studies what she has named the individual’s “HQ” or ‘Health Quotient”. The “Health Quotient” is a measure of an individual’s adaptive state of health, based on their physical, emotional and chemical wellbeing, within the individual’s epigenetic and environmental context. This fits perfectly with the philosophy of chiropractic – that healing is an innate action, which happens from within and that the body is a self-healing organism. Having this in mind, and studying the work of Dr Michel Odent, where he concludes that the most critical time in life affecting our physical and mental health, is the moment of birth, Eline passionately devoted her work and personal life,on making a human being’s birth time the beginning of a well lived healthy lifetime, close to the way nature intended it to be. She believes we have the responsibility toRead More

As mothers ourselves we know how important it is to care for your body during pregnancy and after giving birth. And it is equally important to use products that are as natural and organic as possible. Pregnancy and birth have a “rollercoaster” effect on our bodies and it takes up to 1 year for our bodies to get back in shape after giving birth. Hormonal imbalance affects our psychology and even causes depression to a great percent of new mothers. The changes in our lives and to our routine can make us feel stressed and anxious. So, it is important to care both for our body and our soul, to remain positive and have a good support system by doctors, friends and family. It is also quite important to feel loved and pampered. That is why we created MommyBox. A gift and subscription box in Cyprus dedicated to new and expecting mommies.

Yoga has never been alien to us. We have been doing it since we were a baby! Whether it is the Cat Stretch that strengthens the spine or the Wind-Relieving pose that boosts digestion, you will always find infants doing some form of yoga throughout the day. Yoga can be many things to many people. We are here to support the well-being and personal evolution in body, mind, heart and spirit. Rather than information, women take body memories and awareness to their labour space: this is how yoga is effective. Pregnancy Yoga Every Monday from 18h30 to 19h30 at Vedanta Yoga Centre and Birthlight Yoga every Sunday from 11h30am to 12h30 Studies have suggested that practicing yoga during pregnancy can improve sleep, reduce stress and anxiety, increase the strength, flexibility and endurance of muscles needed for childbirth.

More than 10 years of practicing and providing professional consultations have proved to me that you are stronger than you think and babywearing willRead More
